The anonymous founder of the Bitcoin network, Satoshi Nakamoto, is nothing short of an urban legend that turns out to be true. No one knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is, whether it’s one person or a group, their/his/her age, gender, nationality. In short, we ow nothing about Satoshi Nakamoto except the fact that they/he/she founded the Bitcoin network.
Whoever or whatever Satoshi Nakamoto is, this entity is now among the top 20 richest people in the world. As Bitcoin’s price reaches an all-time high crossing the $60K threshold, the wealth of Satoshi Nakamoto keeps increasing correspondingly.
In the middle of April, Satoshi Nakamoto was the 19th richest person in the world. This time, Nakamoto is in the 20th position.
There is no clear estimate of Satoshi Nakamoto’s wealth. In reality, all the speculation of Nakamoto being the 20th richest person in the world is based on a lot of guesswork. To begin with, there is no clear estimate of how many Bitcoin Nakamoto owns. A general estimate that the crypto community largely agrees on is 1 million Bitcoins. However, not everyone agrees to this estimate. Some feel that the figure is overestimated, and Nakamoto would have around 750,000 Bitcoins. There are others who feel Nakamoto owns more than a million Bitcoins. In the absence of a concrete figure, it becomes impossible to assess the total wealth of this person or entity.
Satoshi Nakamoto continues to be one of the most thrilling mysteries of the modern era. Whoever Nakamoto may be, there is no doubt that this person possesses a lot of wealth only through Bitcoins.
