Poof! Bitcoin is in the midst of a mainstream moment, yet the creator of the original digital currency remains a mystery. Much has been written about Satoshi Nakamoto and his stash of a million bitcoins.
The secret personality is now among the top 20 richest entities on the planet.

Yes, it has been 10 years.
As noted, the Bitcoin creator sent his final emails to fellow developers on April 26, 2011, in which he made clear that he had moved on to other projects. That is, before he handed over a cryptographic key that he had used to send network wide alerts.
Timely then, that some new research has been published that explores the life and time of the mysterious developer while he perfected his cryptographic creation.
Entitled “The Last Days of Satoshi: What Happened When Bitcoin’s Creator Disappeared”, is a comprehensive look at what Satoshi went through to launch Bitcoin, as well as the choices he made as a developer.
And there are plenty of juicy nuggets in the research that highlight the full context of the conversation around some of the infamous moments around the famous cryptocurrency.
