The mystery of Satoshi Nakamoto will remain a topic of substantial discussion for several years to come. Some people feel the CIA might have been involved in the creation of Bitcoin, although there is no evidence to back up these claims. However, Gavin Andresen once gave a talk on Bitcoin at the CIA headquarters.
Is There A CIA – Bitcoin Connection?
It is not the first time people mention how Bitcoin may have been created by the CIA, despite a clear lack of evidence to back these claims. However, a recent article on Dollar Vigilante mentions how an intelligence agency may have been involved in the Bitcoin concept at some stage throughout its seven-year history.
The recent revelation of Craig Wright not being Satoshi Nakamoto – despite Jon Matonis and Gavin Andresen stating otherwise – has spurred a new debate as to who created Bitcoin in the first place. Although this mystery may never be resolved completely, there have been previous mentions of the CIA – or the FBI – creating Bitcoin. Unfortunately, neither of these claims seem particularly valid, as there is no concrete evidence pointing in that direction.
