American entrepreneur and inventor Elon Musk reacted to the information that he is allegedly the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto. Musk wrote on his Twitter that this is not the case. His relationship with cryptocurrency is limited to a certain amount of bitcoins, which his friend sent him some years back, but now he doesn’t know where they are.
The suggestion that Elon Musk may be hiding some kind of secret was put forward by former SpaceX intern Sahil Gupta. As the main argument, he referred to the fact that the bitcoin code was written by a person with deep knowledge of the C ++ programming language, and Musk actively used this language in his developments..
Opponents of this theory have given several reasons, with help who tried to explain why Musk cannot be the creator of bitcoin. First, Musk himself said that 2008 was the most difficult year for him due to the difficulties in the early stages of the development of SpaceX and Tesla. According to skeptics, at this time, Musk could not do something as large-scale as the creation of bitcoin..
Secondly, this version was already promoted on the Reddit site in 2016. Then users came to the conclusion that Musk would not have been able to remain silent if he were indeed the creator of bitcoin, and would have begun to fight banks and regulators trying to destroy bitcoin..
Third, during the interview, Musk noted that bitcoin “can be a good thing,” but questioned this, adding that cryptocurrency is often used to make illegal transactions..
The original Bitcoin documentation was published in 2008 by a programmer or group of programmers using the name Satoshi Nakamoto. Who was behind this name is still not known for certain, despite a huge number of different versions..
