Satoshi Nakamoto to unleash Bitcoin blockbuster?

The unknown creator of Bitcoin could be working on a book about the cryptocurrency.

A message posted recently on a website is possibly linked to Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonym used by the person or people who released the original Bitcoin whitepaper in 2008.

“Announcing the first excerpt to a literary work consisting of two parts. The excerpt is provided,” it says. “I wanted to include it as a brief glimpse of history. Even for those that can’t read the full book, I wanted to make this available to everyone. A short story if you will, with some of the most brought up questions and answers. I wanted the people and the facts to be known. Or as much of it. I’m still saving most for the books, the best parts hopefully. It’s currently just a possibility for now.”

The post stresses that there are many who contributed to the project, “many names of which were not included, individuals who for whatever reason have chosen not to go public and therefore out of respect, I did not include them. Once these conversations are in the public domain to include them in the possible series, I will do so. But to be certain, there are countless conversations I found to be enlightening that I hope make it to be part of the story. There will be many new names and individuals appearing throughout the book in any case, as it is a story about my personal life. Those willing to share these conversations should, for the public.”

Whilst the very thought of a book by the real Nakamoto will have Bitcoin enthusiasts frothing at the mouth with excitement, Coin Rivet should point out that the authenticity of the post and excerpt has not been verified. And even if it is genuine, the post states that, “there’s no guarantee the book will ever come to be, unless it becomes necessary and people want to know about me personally. In order to figure out the names for them, I have created a simple cryptogram. It is ridiculously easy for anyone to solve, regardless of age. No bruteforce needed. I also will provide the approximate release dates later on in the case they do get made.”
