The suspect? Adam Back, founder of Blockstream. Here’s a few of the reasons he’s now in the spotlight…
● Invented HashCash, a digital currency which is often called an ‘earlier version of Bitcoin’ in 1997. Bitcoin came 12 years later, plenty of time to make some big improvements.
● One of the few people in the world with the experience, and education to do it.
● Some identical writing habits (two spaces after each period).
● Under his real name, he put out an impressive stream of computer science based research and uploaded his findings often. This suddenly stopped as soon as Satoshi began publishing his research.
Even his responses on Twitter since this theory gained traction, it frankly reads like someone when their cover has been blown, hoping to gain it back they end up over-explaining themselves.
