There is a commentary in the “From the Editor” section explaining the reason for the book’s release. The editor writes that ten years later, those in power began to get carried away with the idea of cryptocurrency and “accept the inevitability” of this technology.
“As a child, my brother and I ran into a hornet’s nest from time to time when we played in the forest,” writes the editor. “We threw a stone at him or kicked him. It’s not rational, but too tempting and too fun. And when you do something like that, you do it quickly, and then get away with your feet as quickly as possible. “
The book editor writes about a number of characteristic features that distinguish Satoshi Nakamoto’s letters, such as the double space at the end of a sentence. In addition, Satoshi was distinguished by politeness, clear communication, thoughtfulness. This is a person or group of people who “value privacy”. The book contains 539 Nakamoto messages from the bitcointalk.org forum and 34 publicly known emails.
Recall that in November, a study was released, according to which Satoshi Nakamoto could lead the development of Bitcoin in London. Substantial Films planned to release a film about Satoshi Nakamoto titled “Decrypted” later this year, but the coronavirus pandemic has made adjustments to the studio’s plans.
