American entrepreneur Elon Musk has revealed his belief that computer scientist Nick Szabo may be Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious creator of the digital currency Bitcoin.
Musk suggested that perhaps more than anyone else, Nick Szabo was responsible for the development of the idea, explaining that although Szabo denied that he was Nakamoto, he was more responsible for the ideas behind Bitcoin than anyone else.
He also pointed out that he does not believe that there is much importance behind the identity of the creator of Bitcoin, as it is a name associated with an idea, according to a report published by “Business Insider”.
Bitcoin was first proposed by Satoshi Nakamoto, who has not been identified, in October 2008.
In 2014, a team of researchers studied the “Nakamoto White Paper”, who confirmed that he is the creator of Bitcoin, but he has long denied that he is the unknown inventor.
