Price of TRON explodes after meeting
Satoshi Nakamoto can be identified
The overly academic C++ code was a good indication of somebody trained to know how to code but not be a professional engineer. Cause there was a lot of cleaning and optimization and technical debt reduction that would have happened.Hoskinson also claims that he knows people who have done the analysis and therefore may know who Satoshi Nakamoto is.
What you can do is you can apply stylometric techniques to that code and apply it to all the open-source projects that have ever been written and there’s a very high probability you’re going to find a match between that code and other code and then transitively you can follow it. You probably can get a really good idea of who that person could be.
According to Hoskinson, it is likely that Nakamoto was educated either in the UK or the US and is an academic between 40 and 50 years of age. The IOHK CEO bases this assumption on the fact that the Bitcoin script is based on a language called Forth, which is very unusual and was mainly used in computer science education in England and the eastern United States.
It is also likely that Nakamoto was more of an academic than a professional developer, as the code was “overly academic”. A professional would have done a cleaner job, as Hoskinson noted:So, that’s somebody who probably has an academic background. Somebody who has a lot of knowledge of cryptography, especially because of the choice of the elliptic curve and the fact that he was able to create things like Base 58 and things like that. It’s clearly a person who had computer science training.
