  1. I wish I had had a chance to tell him the impact reading his forum posts in retrospect have had on me. What a great guy, true professional at every level and a genius ahead of his time.

    RIP hal

  2. Assuming you believe he’s Satoshi like I do, it’s interesting that he mentions that his children are tech savvy. Do you think they still have access to Satoshi’s and Hal’s coins?! They’re just sitting on billions, and not touching it?

  3. I’ve read this before, but nowadays I particularly like reading it from the perspective of someone who thinks he’s Satoshi.

    Each and every detail about his and Satoshi’s interactions with each other are intriguing.

  4. “At the time, I thought I was dealing with a young man. . . who was very smart and sincere.”

    Anyone else think that is Hal’s way of saying “Ya, there is no fucking way CSW is Satoshi.”

  5. Hal was a firm believer in anonymity as he showed in his works of PGP. Revealing who truly created Bitcoin would go against the fundamentals of it being decenentralized. I believe this is the biggest give away to why he and the other creators of bitcoin choose to remain anonymous.

  6. I go back to 2009 when a good LARP told me there was this “thing” and I gave him $100 to buy me some. I forgot about till Mt Gox happened and smiled for many days.
