VanEck Executive explains why Satoshi Nakamoto could be a group of people

Gabor Gurbacs, director of digital asset strategy at VanEck, shared an interesting insight into Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. According to the director, Nakamoto may be a group of people and not one individual.

Although this claim is already famous, and some believe the group is made up of aliens and not humans, Gurbacs went further and cited three famous examples to make his point.

The first of these is the name “Pubius”, a pseudonym used by Alexander Hamilton, the first US Secretary of the Treasury, James Madison, the fourth US President, and John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. Together they wrote 85 articles, collected in the book “The Federalist,” published in 1787.

The second example cited was the name “Nicolas Bourbaki”, used by a group of mathematicians to write a series of books. The group was founded in 1934 and may also have served as an inspiration for the possible creators of Bitcoin.

Finally, the third name is the Bilderberg Group. The group, founded in 1954, 69 years ago, would have several anonymous people participate in its conferences, including experts in various sectors such as industry, finance and education.

Satoshi Nakamoto is alive and dead, VanEck director jokes

The more time passes, the less hope we have of knowing who the creator of Bitcoin was. Although there are several “candidates”, this only makes things more difficult. Gabor Gurbacs, director of digital asset strategy at VanEck, thinks this is in any case a positive thing.

“One of the best things Satoshi did for Bitcoin was disappear”began Gurbacs, an executive at VanEck. “No centralization. No media. No fame. No glory. No ambiguity. No attack vectors. Satoshi made all this possible. Thank you and respect.”

Interested in the conversation, Eric Balchunas, Bloomberg’s expert on ETFs, asked if Gurbacs believes Satoshi is still alive after 15 years of Bitcoin’s creation.

– Do you think he/she is still alive?asked Balchunas.

– If I said both [vivo e morto]it would be confusing… but some might say that Satoshi is not an individual… like Publius, Bourbaki, etc.Gurbacs replied.

“Publius was an anonymous group… Bourbaki was an anonymous group… The Bilderberg group was largely anonymous… Satoshi is anonymous…”

While it is a strong theory, some critics point out that a group could not keep a secret for so long, unlike what one person could do. The examples cited by Gurbacs, from Pubius and Nicolas Bourbaki, are a demonstration of this, as the truth came to light at some point.

Finally, perhaps even more important than this mystery, is the involvement of major managers behind Bitcoin ETFs. Gurbacs’ interest in Nakamoto’s identity shows that Wall Street is not just after money, but the entire culture behind Bitcoin.
