On February 25, 2021, my mobile phone was bombarded by 10 good friends:

“Hey, Vicotr! Have you seen the S-1 application documents submitted by Coinbase to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for IPO listing? Is the Bitcoin address in it Satoshi Nakamoto?!”

So, I opened the official listing application document submitted by Coinbase to the US Securities and Exchange Commission. After seeing the address, I was very happy with the sense of humor of Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong! Yes, Brian Armstrong wants to send a copy of Coinbase’s listing application to Satoshi Nakamoto!

Due to the new crown virus epidemic, I think Satoshi Nakamoto may choose a “decentralized work method” like Coinbase and my company Anchain.AI, so-1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa, it is definitely Coinbase submitted to the US Securities and Exchange Commission the address of.

Now, it’s best to grab a glass of beer or pour a cup of coffee. Let me show you all the insider information about the address: 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa!

What exactly is 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa?

1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa is the miner reward receiving address of the Bitcoin genesis block, which was dug out at 10:15:05 UTC on January 3, 2009.

The following figure shows some details of the Bitcoin genesis block transaction:

Does Satoshi Nakamoto really own the Bitcoin address 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa?

Yes, the AnChain.AI blockchain forensics team 100% confirmed that the Bitcoin address 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa is owned by the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

The reason is simple, because Satoshi Nakamoto was the world’s first Bitcoin miner, and this address was created by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2011.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

So far, we only know that “Satoshi Nakamoto” (Satoshi Nakamoto) is a Japanese name, but the real role behind it is still unknown. Someone previously found a Japanese named “Dorian Nakamoto” and thought he was the real Satoshi Nakamoto, but he quickly denied it and confirmed to the Associated Press: “I have nothing to do with this matter. “.

I believe Mr. Nakahonda, after all, his English is not that good, just like I always have trouble communicating with Japanese friends in English occasionally. (Okay, blame me…)

Although many people claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto, most of them are joking. But now, myself, and my crypto friends in San Francisco and the University of California, Berkeley, are more inclined to believe that “Satoshi Nakamoto is black” (this may be an advertisement).

How does the US Securities and Exchange Commission send copies of Coinbase’s listing application documents to Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin wallet?

Now, put on your “smart hat” and let us take a look at it from a technical point of view.

The Bitcoin blockchain allows the sending of encoded messages in payment transactions. Technically speaking, US Securities and Exchange Commission officials can use “hexadecimal code” or ASCII code to encode the message, which can then be passed to Satoshi Nakamoto.

Here, I will show you a real example.

In the Bitcoin genesis block, there is a garbled code:

 04ffff001d0104455468652054696d65732030332f4a616e2f32303039204368616e63656c6c6f72206f6e206272696e6b206f66207365636f6e64206261696c6f757420666f722062616e6b73

Obviously, this garbled code is hexadecimal code, and then we can decode it into human-readable ASCII code-this job is too simple, using Python language, one line of code can be done!

Okay, after decoding, we can see that the message left in the Bitcoin genesis block is:

The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks

The translation is: The Times of January 3, 2009-The Chancellor of Finance is on the verge of implementing the second round of emergency bank assistance.
