He must have an iron will because he has 980,000 Bitcoins making him one of the richest people in the world but he has never spent a single one. Whoever Satoshi is he's got to be a brilliant but very odd man who is totally uninterested in fame or great wealth. That's why I don't see how Satoshi could be a group of people as some say, a group could never keep a secret this big for this long, somebody would look at all those Bitcoins and want to buy a new car. There is just a limited number of people that strange.

Unless I were otherwise fabulously wealthy or somehow immune to the need for wealth, had I that much coin, I’d have exchanged at least a tenth of them by now (for a nice pad, great food, ever more books, and various charities*).


   Sample my Kindle books at:

* I reckon that might not be called an exchange. One thing I’d make sure refugees desperate to flee Central America, Yemen, Syria, etc. got some legal defense. And of course I’d plow some coin into longevity research.;)
