This is episode 123 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast!
This week's fantastic show is all about Craig Wright, the man who claims to be the inventor of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. According to BBC News, Wright recently proved this claim by signing a message with one of history's earliest Bitcoin addresses, which should belong to Satoshi.
Do we really believe him? Is BBC's report enough proof for us? Not quite. Tim and Daniel recently set up a bet regarding this proof, and they'll significantly increase the stakes in this episode.
Then later in the show, for anyone new to cryptography, we'll provide a brief overview of how it works and how someone can mathematically prove their identity with public and private keys. Your hosts this week are just Daniel Brown and Tim Baker. Enjoy!
Leave a comment and tell if you think the real Satoshi has finally been revealed! If so, will it affect Bitcoin in general?
