Elon Musk points to Nick Szabo as the real Satoshi Nakamoto

The search for the inventor of BTC continues

According to Elon Musk, Nick Szabo is the real Satoshi Nakamoto. The CEO and founder of Tesla launched the hypothesis during the podcast of lex fridman dedicated to his exploits. He did so by answering a very specific question asked by his interlocutor, specifying that his hypothesis is based on what Szabo repeatedly asserted during his professional activity in the cryptographic field.
It remains of course to understand whether what he said is not to be considered an attempt, more or less successful, to divert attention from one's person. A few days ago, in fact, the richest man in the world he was in turn referred to as the inventor of Bitcoin.

Who is Nick Szabo, the candidate for true Satoshi Nakamoto

Nick Szabo can be considered as a precursor of Bitcoin, so much so that he has already been the subject of rumors in the past that they would like him to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. To justify the rumors is above all the fact of having invented Bit Gold, which BTC is clearly inspired by.
A thesis which, confirming Elon Musk's assertions, is reinvigorated by his theories. Carried out through the use of style and language in many ways similar to the Whitepaper of Bitcoin. Furthermore, Szabo was responsible for the coining of the term "Smart contract", launched with the aim of being able to apply the law and advanced contractual practice to the design of e-commerce protocols based on anonymity, on the web.

The anniversary of the 13th anniversary of the Genesis Block

Elon Musk's words fell at a very special moment. Or simultaneously with the commemoration of the 13th anniversary of the Genesis Block. That is the first block mined on the blockchain of Bitcoin.
A suggestive date therefore, which also gave food for thought to a character that few would have imagined to find among the crypto-fans. We are talking about Melania Trump, the former First Lady, who wanted to join the Genesis Block celebrations. A move that has been treacherously traced by many to the recent launch by a NFT, Melania's Vision. In fact, during her husband's presidency, Melania Trump had never objected to the vitriolic judgments expressed by the then tenant of the White House. Too easy for many to trace its adherence to digital assets to the need to advertise its limited edition Non Fungible Token. Even if, ultimately, the proceeds from its sale will be donated to charity within the Be Best initiative, dedicated to children.

Is Elon Musk trying to deflect rumors about him?

Of course, Elon Musk's directions have prompted some to wonder if the richest man in the world is trying to sidetrack the rumors about him. Just a few days ago, in fact, a former SpaceX intern, Sahil Gupta, has advanced the hypothesis that it is the CEO of Tesla who is the real Satoshi. The hypothesis launched on his blog is also accompanied by supporting data, including the skills possessed by Musk.
As a result, he too has become part of a list that continually tends to grow month after month. A hunt which resembles a simple stylistic exercise, but which continues to thrill a lot. But most of all, such as to be able to give an idea of ​​how important Bitcoin is in terms of customs, and what has marked contemporary society, beyond its actual use in everyday life.
