How did he conceive it in the first place? I mean, surely he didn't invent it by accident, provided that its effects are so little that they must be measured by NASA in their labs, so I presume he knew what he was doing and what physical laws he was looking for. Unless he is an alien or a man from the future and he can not tell us the truth, of course.
seoras writes: Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright has publicly identified himself as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. His admission ends years of speculation about who came up with the original ideas underlying the digital cash system. Mr Wright has provided technical proof to back up his claim using coins known to be owned by Bitcoin's creator. Prominent members of the Bitcoin community and its core development team have also confirmed Mr Wright's claim.
It seems it was conceived by a single man, who obviously could not test it alone (it takes expensive Nasa facilities, it seems). And yet it seems to work, with much surprise from all the world's most expert scientists. One might wonder if he's an alien, or a man from the future... It 's a perfect science-fiction plot, does anyone know this movie: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
I felt like a big idiot once when in another country, I went to the women's restroom to change my daughter because my wife was busy. I got very bad looks, I tought "well this country must be less tolerant than mine to fathers changing baby's diapers, but I don't give a crap". Then when going out I glanced into the men's restroom and saw a changing station there, too, unlike in my country, and realized the reason of the bad looks.
It's our fault to not having found the time and energy to converge to some other free alternatives (and there are). With people keeping using what's more convenient at the moment, other programs do not reach the critical mass needed to become useful.
