Dr Scott Stornetta: Co-Inventor of Blockchain on Crypto Clothesline

Speaking with the original co-inventor of Bitcoin was such a warm and friendly experience... Nothing like you would imagine Satoshi Nakamoto would sound - If you believed the rumors that Dr Scott Stornetta is in fact Satoshi.  It is safe to say we absolutely do not believe these rumors however there is still space for us to be wrong.

Blockchain was not born together with Satoshi’s Bitcoin white paper, it had been mooching around for almost 20 years before Satoshi started creating new layers on top of the original protocol, thereby creating Bitcoin…

Scott went on to tell us that although their processes were on track, technology was just not there yet as the biggest storage drive was just 10mb compared to our terabyte hard drives we have now.

Chris Dorian of BuildSort asked the inevitable question of whether Scott Stornetta was in fact, the Satoshi Nakamoto? The response was interesting  “I'm a fan of what he's done, but I do want to say that when Stuart and I first talked about the Bitcoin paper, we felt like some of it was just a great idea, out-of-the-box thinking... And then other parts of it we looked at and said: Why did he make that mistake? Why did he do that?” 

But as our audience, have a listen and see what you think..... Is Dr Stornetta the real Satoshi?
