I am Satoshi Nakamoto, inventor of Bitcoin

There is a long and fraught history in Bitcoin of claims and counterclaims about who Satoshi is. I might as well confess that he is me.

I come forward at this time because Craig Wright claims to be Satoshi and I can't stand such intentional scammery.

If you read any of my pre-Bitcoin books, you'll see there are many pages where the first letter of each line reads "I am Satoshi Nakamoto" and "Someday I will invent Bitcoin". If you can't find the page that contains this, buy more copies of the books. You just haven't found the right one. Please use this link, since it includes my Amazon Associates code. Buy additional copies since each one might be slightly different.

Further proof: The first letter of the chapter titles of Time Management for System Administrators, it spells "tfrttttpseeda". I mean, what hacker doesn't know what that means?

Oh, I guess you aren't elite. My bad.

Now let me address my critics: Some say that this is just Tom trying to promote his books. Well, if that's what I was doing, do you think I'd write this on my book-promotion blog?

By the way... you can get a sneak preview of my next book: First, the new issue of ACM Queue magazine has the complete text of chapter 2 (free to ACM members, everyone else pays a small fee). Alternatively you can also see the latest complete draft on Safari Books Online which you probably already have a subscription to.

That's all I have to say on this matter.
