Las citas originales de Satoshi Nakamoto
Opinión de personas que estuvieron en contacto con Satoshi Nakamoto
“…pensé que estaba tratando con un joven de ascendencia japonesa que era muy inteligente y sincero. He tenido la suerte de conocer a muchas personas brillantes a lo largo de mi vida, por lo que reconozco las señales. Bitcoin and me (Hal Finney)
“Y la naturaleza de Trustless de Bitcoin fue lo principal que me convenció de que Satoshi no estaba estafando. Construyó una carretera sin puente de peaje. La gente podría usar Bitcoin sin crear ninguna obligación de pagarle nada. No estaba vendiendo monedas, las estaba regalando por resolver hashes. Él no reservó nada para sí mismo.” Si hubiera sabido lo que estábamos empezando. (Ray Dillinger)
“Either there’s a team of people who worked on this,” Kaminsky said, “or this guy is a genius.” Dan Kaminsky
“If you don’t believe me or don’t get it, I don’t have time to try to convince you, sorry.”

2008-11-17 Satoshi’s source code and a letter from the creator detailing that he sent the “main files” to James A. Donald. “I sent you the main files (available by request at the moment, full release soon),” Nakamoto stated on Nov. 17, 2008
2009/02/11 I’ve developed a new open source P2P e-cash system called Bitcoin. It’s completely decentralized, with no central server or trusted parties, because everything is based on crypto proof instead of trust. Give it a try, or take a look at the screenshots and design paper: Download Bitcoin v0.1 at http://www.bitcoin.org
2009/02/11 “The result is a distributed system with no single point of failure. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of the P2P network to check for double-spending”.
2009/02/15 at 4:42pm Could be. They’re talking about the old Chaumian central mint stuff, but maybe only because that was the only thing available. Maybe they would be interested in going in a new direction.
A lot of people automatically dismiss e-currency as a lost cause because of all the companies that failed since the 1990’s. I hope it’s obvious it was only the centrally controlled nature of those systems that doomed them. I think this is the first time we’re trying a decentralized, non-trust-based system.
2009/04/12 The existing Visa credit card network processes about 15 million Internet purchases per day worldwide. Bitcoin can already scale much larger than that with existing hardware for a fraction of the cost. It never really hits a scale ceiling. If you’re interested, I can go over the ways it would cope with extreme size. to Mike Hearn
The script is actually a predicate. It’s just an equation that evaluates to true or false. Predicate is a long and unfamiliar word so I called it script.
2010/06/17 Quote from: laszlo. How long have you been working on this design Satoshi? It seems very well thought out,
“Since 2007. At some point I became convinced there was a way to do this without any trust required at all and couldn’t resist to keep thinking about it. Much more of the work was designing than coding.
Fortunately, so far all the issues raised have been things I previously considered and planned for.”
2010/07/05 We don’t want to lead with “anonymous”.
“The developers expect that this will result in a stable-with-respect-to-energy currency outside the reach of any government.” — I am definitely not making an such taunt or assertion. Sorry to be a wet blanket. Writing a description
2010/07/29 Re: Scalability and transaction rate
The current system where every user is a network node is not the intended configuration for large scale. That would be like every Usenet user runs their own NNTP server. The design supports letting users just be users. The more burden it is to run a node, the fewer nodes there will be. Those few nodes will be big server farms. The rest will be client nodes that only do transactions and don’t generate.

Last message from Satoshi.
Added some DoS limits, removed safe mode (0.3.19)
There’s more work to do on DoS, but I’m doing a quick build of what I have so far in case it’s needed, before venturing into more complex ideas. The build for this is version 0.3.19.
– Added some DoS controls
As Gavin and I have said clearly before, the software is not at all resistant to DoS attack. This is one improvement, but there are still more ways to attack than I can count.
I’m leaving the -limitfreerelay part as a switch for now and it’s there if you need it.
“…Until shortly before his absence and handover, Nakamoto made all modifications to the source code himself“.
Except for test transactions, Nakamoto’s coins remain unspent since mid January 2009.
