- Who is Archimedes?
Who is Euclid?
We don't know.
We don't know if Euclid was
one person or multiple people?
And you know what?
It doesn't matter.
Euclidian geometry works
whether I know who
Euclid was or not.
Whether Euclid was a
moral and good person.
Or whether he was a corrupt
plutocrat and a bastard.
Science and mathematics
have essential truths
that stands alone
irrespective of its inventors
and irrespective
of their motives.
Well, Bitcoin is a system based
on mathematical truths.
And these mathematical
truths stand alone.
We can read the
source code in Bitcoin
and understand it
and it will be true
whether Satoshi Nakamoto
is a man, a woman,
a collection of individuals,
a government agency
or aliens from the future.
