Bitcoin was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, who may be an individual or a group of people.

Because the name seems to be Japanese, many people assume the creator is from Japan. Some nefarious individuals have claimed that they are Satoshi. However, no one knows who Satoshi is! We will know know who Satoshi is once they use their private cryptographic key which will definitively prove who they are…until then Satoshi is a myth!

Shortly after Bitcoin was launched, Satoshi went silent on the channels they used to previously communicate.  This is a great benefit because they cannot be pressured or threatened. This creates even greater security and decentralization for the Bitcoin network.

Was Bitcoin created by the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.)?
