Submitted for evidence Marty Maly Satoshi nakamoto's earliest collaborator On bitcoin published 120 pages of email Correspondence between the two from 2009 To 2011 I'll start with a spoiler that You don't want we still don't have Satoshi's identity though the emails did Spark some more theories but even though His identity is still debated there was An unprecedented amount of new Information about how he thought his Vision for Bitcoin and the emergence of Key themes that are now part of the Furniture in the space I've link to the 120 pages of emails in the description Of this episode and there is so much to Read if you're interested in it but I Wanted to flag a few highlights here This is really the most fascinating Development surrounding Satoshi Nakamoto And Bitcoin law that we've had in years Interestingly I've seen a lot of posts And comments about how these emails Might make dieh hard Bitcoin Maxis quite Unhappy one example of this is the Notion of anonymity in Bitcoin Satoshi Wrote I think we should deemphasize the Anonymous angle with the popularity of Bitcoin addresses instead of sending by IP we can't give the impression it's Automatically Anonymous it's possible to Be pseudonymous but you'd have to be Careful Satoshi added that if someone Digs through the transaction history and
