Who created Bitcoin?
Bitcoin was created by a person or group of people using the pseudonym "Satoshi Nakamoto." The true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is not known, and it is possible that the name is a pseudonym for one or more individuals.
In 2008, Satoshi published a white paper detailing the design of a new electronic cash system that would later become known as Bitcoin. The system was based on a decentralized ledger technology called the blockchain, which allows transactions to be recorded and verified without the need for a central authority.
Satoshi wrote the first version of the Bitcoin software in 2009 and released it as open-source code. The first block of Bitcoin, known as the "genesis block," was mined in January 2009.
Satoshi remained active in the development of Bitcoin for several years, but eventually stepped back from the project and handed over control to other members of the Bitcoin community. Satoshi's involvement with the project ended in 2011 and they have not been publicly active since.
