“Bitcoin Creator Reveals Superior Energy Efficiency Compared to Banks”


Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious inventor of Bitcoin (BTC), believed that the digital asset would consume less energy than traditional banking systems, according to a recent email exchange with his long-term collaborator, Martti ‘Sirius’ Malmi. The authenticity of these emails has yet to be confirmed.

In these emails, Satoshi and Malmi discuss the thought processes and technical challenges faced during the initial stages of Bitcoin’s development. This is the most significant addition to the archives of Bitcoin’s unknown inventor, with a total of 120 pages.

One of the most prominent topics in these emails, dating back to May 2009, is Satoshi’s concerns about the energy consumption of Bitcoin. He acknowledged the tension between economic freedom and ecological preservation, especially with regards to the proof of work (PoW) system that underpins the digital currency.

However, in contrast to the current criticism of Bitcoin’s high energy usage, Satoshi believed that it would be more efficient than traditional banking systems. He stated that the cost of energy consumption would be significantly lower than the billions spent on banking fees, brick-and-mortar buildings, skyscrapers, and credit card offers.

Aside from his thoughts on Bitcoin’s ecological impact, the emails also reveal his opinions on its scaling, privacy, and potential applications beyond just being a currency. He also recognized the need to address the perceived anonymity of the network.

One of the most interesting aspects of these emails is the insight they provide into Satoshi’s collaborator, Martti Malmi. Malmi joined the project in April 2009 and played a crucial role in deploying Bitcoin’s version 0.2, which included updates such as initial Linux support. He was also instrumental in building the community surrounding Bitcoin and was an active miner, allegedly accumulating 50,000 Bitcoins through his laptop.

The release of these emails comes amidst the ongoing legal battle involving Craig Wright, who claims to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto, and the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA). COPA aims to establish that no one can claim copyrights over the Bitcoin whitepaper or the name.

As the trial continues and the question of Wright’s identity remains unanswered, Malmi’s emails provide a deeper understanding of Bitcoin, its creator, and his exhaustion with the project. They offer a humanizing perspective on the mysterious figure of Satoshi Nakamoto.
