Cryptocurrencies have revolutionized the finance industry and the way people perceive the concept of money.
Created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, bitcoin is the first (and currently most valuable) cryptocurrency in the world.
Unlike other forms of currency, bitcoin is not backed by any central organization (like a bank or country) or by a physical item (like gold).
Whether Nakamoto is a man, woman, or group of individuals is unknown as well, because the mysterious creator has somehow remained anonymous — despite the rising popularity of the cryptocurrencies that Nakamoto helped create.
Which begs the questions: Where did the name Satoshi Nakamoto come from if no one actually knows who this person is?
Even though the name Satoshi Nakamoto is being used a placeholder until the real creator(s) come forward, the name itself certainly didn’t show up randomly.
