ChatGPT claims to have solved the mystery of cryptocurrency’s greatest mystery. According to the artificial intelligence program, it knows the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin.
The chatbot made statistics-packed predictions to give us a list of Satoshi Nakamoto candidates, accompanying each one with a statistical probability.
According to ChatGPT, Nick Szabo is the most likely person behind Bitcoin. 30% wins. Hal Finney and Craig Wright came in second and third with odds of 20% and 10%, respectively. Note that there is also a 30% chance that the creator is actually a group of multiple creators.
Is Nick Szabo the most credible candidate?
Nick Szabo is the most credible candidate for a chatbot, since he is a cryptographer and computer researcher. But he is still one of the few people who have worked on similar projects for Bitcoin.
While these are common names that have popped up a few times, Elon Musk and Steve Jobs are often believed to have been involved in cryptography. However, ChatGPT could not find a direct “directory”.
Finally, there will also be a 40% chance that Satoshi Nakamoto is of Asian descent. This should come as no surprise as the name has Japanese connotations.
Is there an individual or a group of individuals behind the pseudonym?
When you think of Satoshi Nakamoto, a second question often comes to mind. Does this nickname refer to a highly qualified person, or a group of individuals? In fact, many computer scientists are considered by some to be hiding behind the pseudonym of the creator of Bitcoin. This is largely due to the complexity of the code, which is very difficult for a single person.
Thus, ChatGPT rather thinks that one person will hide behind an alias.
First, in the bitcoin white paper published by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, the pronoun “I” is used several times. Unless this is supposed to be intentionally misleading, it implies that only one person will be behind the cryptocurrency.
But then again, every time someone has been named as a potential creator of BTC, at no point has there been a pool of suspects. Especially since Satoshi Nakamoto refers to one name, without any group affiliation.
“Finally, some of the other characters that have been considered as possible candidates to be Satoshi Nakamoto, such as Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, are individuals rather than groups,” ChatGPT says.
Finally, AI once again reminds us of possibilities. ChatGPT is 60% sure that Satoshi Nakamoto will be ‘me’ and not ‘us’.
However, despite the help of artificial intelligence, the puzzle still remains. A heavy veil still hangs over the origin of the creator of the largest cryptocurrency by market cap.
At this rate, we’re not sure the mystery will ever be revealed. Even for a language model, it is difficult to provide more than a guess as answers.
Moral of the story: Satoshi Nakamoto knew how to maintain his identity even in the eyes of ChatGPT!
