Bitcoin Use-Age Around the World

Thought of the Week by Anita Posch

Satoshi’s last messageSatoshi’s last message

10 years ago, on Dec 11 Satoshi Nakamoto left the last public message on the bitcointalk forum. Since then nothing. He/she/they might be dead. Many people believe Hal Finney was Satoshi, but nobody knows. I think it is a good thing, that nobody knows. There are no leaders in Bitcoin. That is essential for being a neutral technology.

Last week I wrote about the Ledger scam trying to steal your money by tricking you into typing your seed phrase into a website. This week I am asking you to always double- and triple-check, if you are on the right website, the correct URL if you are downloading wallet software or other bitcoin related tools. Scammers are much better today than the Nigerian prince”. Sometimes only a small dot is making the difference between legit and scam.

And as always in mainstream media: it’s about price action only. Let’s remind ourselves of the far more important tool that Bitcoin is. It is giving open access without asking someone for permission and a neutral technology that enables more fairness. I am talking with Andreas M. Antonopoulos today about how we can help that Bitcoin is staying this open tool. Our interview will be out on Dec 31 on my podcast and as video on YouTube. BTW are you subscribed already?
