I think the only way that could be true would be if, as some people think,
former Extromian List member Hal Finney was Satoshi Nakamoto. The reason
Satoshi Nakamoto has so many Bitcoins is that he didn't have to mine them,
the system was just designed at the start with him having them. The first
person to actually mine Bitcoins, and the second name on the blockchain
after Satoshi Nakamoto, was Hal Finney; after that if Satoshi wanted more
bitcoins he'd have to mine them just like everybody else.

But if Hal Finney was Satoshi Nakamoto why didn't he donate his Bitcoins to
Alcor when he died in 2014? After all he knew he was dying and if he could
trust Alcor to freeze his body you'd think he could trust them with his
Bitcoins. And if Satoshi never had any intention of spending those Bitcoins
why did he set it up that way? Maybe he got hit by a bus or something.
