Bitcoin was invented by a person or a group of people using the name Satoshi Nakamoto, that say , all the sources before leaving Bitcoin, Satoshi gave its control to many people other than the developers.
Does anyone know who this, Satoshi Nakamoto, really is?
Well despite many articles and investigations to find out there’s still no conclusive answer. Does it matter? Not at all. Bitcoin will keep running and progressing and is an automated autonomous payment system.
Misconception about the origin of Bitcoin
There’s also a common misconception that Satoshi invented Bitcoin all by himself. Just like most big breakthroughs Satoshi’s invention was built on the shoulders of giants previous work done by top engineers, scientists and mathematicians. Satoshi combined all of this work into one coherent system like any good scientist he references these in his original description of Bitcoin. So while we may not know who created Bitcoin we do know what it’s based on and more importantly exactly how it works.
