Breaking: Satoshi Nakamoto's Email was Hacked!

Hacker Hijacks Satoshi Nakamoto’s Email, Threatens to Reveal All

The bitcoin world is abuzz with speculation that some of Satoshi Nakamoto’s online accounts have been compromised, concerned a hacker could potentially access information concerning the bitcoin creator’s true identity or use the accounts to defraud key members of the bitcoin community.



Wired reported that the alleged hacker had posted on Pastebin that they would reveal key details of Nakamoto’s identity if 25 BTC were sent to a specified bitcoin address. While small donations have been coming in, the address still appears well short of that mark.

Administrator ‘theymos’ of the Bitcoin Talk forum (aka Michael Marquardt) a key figure in bitcoin’s online community, posted just after 9pm (BST) on 8th September, alerting the community of the development, writing...  continued

let's see if Bytemaster is Nakamoto   :)

PS considering the rally on BTSX the last days, the Chinese are confident it is the same person  :P

Being well known isn't going to protect you from threats. The reason BM isn't under constant threat is because people don't suspect he is sitting on half a billion dollars. This is why I said days ago it's not a bright idea to start talking about how BM could be Satoshi.

No one wants to be misrepresented as Satoshi because being Satoshi is dangerous. I think when Bitshares has a high enough market cap there will be quite a bit of danger which BM could face but we are a long way away from that possibility right now.

What I think we are seeing here is unusual. If it were an extortion or ransom scenario then you would expect the attacks to send an email to Satoshi from his own email address asking for Bitcoin without it ever reaching the media. Because it has reached the media I would say these hackers aren't motivated by profit, they want attention, and possibly genuinely hate Bitcoin at the same time.

Luckybit speaks tru tru

Sorry I'm stoned..
What I mean, bytemaster cannot be satoshi because he wants keyID and is against shills and sockpuppets or another of the english words, you know what I mean. *transmission over*

I agree with this.  Funny you mention it.  I have been thinking about sending him a pm about this...but I'm sure he knows.  I might anyway...so I will sleep better.

I don't understand the whole buzz with shatoshi... does these news affect the BTC price now? Why it is so important to know who shatoshi is? why would it be dangerous if people knew his identity more than any other known rich man on the planet? why does it matter if he moves his original funds anyway?

the only thing that would matter is to know if he is dead or alive so in case he is dead and no one has access to his funds, bitcoin supply would be reduced (dividends in the bitcoin network)...other than that i really don't understand why this is so important..

Imagine why it is importand by this examples:

Satoshi is:

1. the NSA
2. Bill Gates
3. The Pope
4. Bytemaster
5. Me
6. Rothchild
7. Rockefeller

...would it be the same undepended of which one they are?

I think a lot of people want to know for the reason you mention, basically to try and determine their motivations...but the more I think about it the more I conclude that it doesn't matter.  It is what it is and can be used for good or ill like many technologies/innovations.  We just need to be vigilant about how it's used.  Cat is out of the bag already.

I also think that it doesn't really matter who he is...No matter who he is from the below there will always be two sides of looking seeing things for people to buy or sell..

1. the NSA (+it must be legitimate so there will be mass adoption buy, - they did that to follow our transactions sell)
2. Bill Gates (+it is Bill Gates so it must have value buy, - this fucker got even richer sell)
3. The Pope (+it is a religious coin that unite people buy, - religion did it again and got into finance sell)
4. Bytemaster (i can see only + in that  ;))
5. Me (+we had a genious in our community)
6. Rothchild
7. Rockefeller

etc... so in the end of the day it doesn't really matter who he is... all that matter is if his fortune will be sold out at some point or if this a lost treasure for ever and therefore bitcoin supply is less than we think..

I just can't imagine a single/bunch of individuals sitting on half a billion (or more!) worth of Bitcoin and not move it at all at any point, except if he/they already have other active wallets in which they mined part of their coins from the beginning.

If it's one individual, my guess (I have a lot of imagination lol) is he didn't think it was worth much in the beginning, lost his private key by accident and is so ashamed about it that he decided it would be good to stay hidden and not say anything. Best to keep the mystery alive than admitting to such a shameful mistake.

And if it's a government experiment... well they don't need the funds, so that might explain why so much didn't move.

It would be great to know though if anybody has the private key to those huge wallets from where the funds never moved since the beginning. Just to know if the "available" supply really is what is shown!
