Since Bitcoin announced in 2008, a lot of researchers attempted to reveal the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. But still his identity is unknown. In fact, the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is one of the bigest questions in crypto world. Many people claimed so far that they are the real Satoshi, but couldn’t show any reasonable evidence to prove it. Recently, a researcher is re-mining Satoshi’s Bitcoin blocks to recognize his Secrets.
Re-mining Satoshi’s Bitcoin blocks to recognize his secrets; researchers focused on the Bitcoin blocks mined by Satoshi
What is clear in this topic is that Satoshi Nakamoto used a single PC in order to mine the first 1.1 million Bitcoin.
Recently, a new researcher, Sergio Dermain Lerner, who does research by looking to the mining patterns of the original Bitcoin miner. In his latest research he focused on Bitcoin blocks, which were mined by Satoshi Nakamoto.
Lerner published a preview of his first findings so far. He did his research base on the irregular pattern of the Least-Significant-Byte (LSB) of the nonce field of the block.
It was in Jun that Lerner created a blog and published his results from 2013. He revealed that Satoshi Nakamoto, held back from mining in the first five minutes of the block interval. But he could not find any reason for that. In fact, it’s unknown that why did Satoshi do that?
The other researcher, TechMix also proved that all the blocks, which were mined by Satoshi could be divided into five different groups, based on the frequency distribution of the Nonce LSB values.
What did Satoshi use to mine the first blocks?
The research leads to an interesting result, which could put an end to the discussion and answer to this question that what type of equipment did Satoshi use?
The researcher explains, at first researchers assumed that Satoshi deployed a mining farm consists of 50 independent computers. He could even highly decouple system. But, the evidences all support the idea that Satoshi was simply multi-threading in a high-end CPU.
Re-mining Satoshi’s Bitcoin blocks to recognize his secrets; the result of research
From all the evidences mentioned above we conclude that Satoshi was a single person and not a group of people. It also focuses the attention to Craig Wright, who claimed to be Satoshi previously. The reason is that he has indicated many times that he used multiple computers to mine the early blocks.
