The billion-dollar question that’s been making the rounds in the crypto sphere is ‘Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?’. The Bitcoin founder’s identity has remained a mystery since its launch on January 3, 2009. Hundreds of articles have been written about the topic, yet no concrete evidence that unmasks who Satoshi Nakamoto really is.
Speculations on social media about Nakamoto’s identity have gone over the roof, while most of them are false and laughable. While a majority of people assume that Nakamoto is a man, Nicola Mendelsohn, the vice president of Meta, claimed that Satoshi Nakamoto could well be a woman.

“I will give you one: Satoshi Nakamoto. I mean, we all assume it’s a man, right? Is that our bias? It’s just a name — it could well be a woman,” Nicola Mendelsohn said at the World Economic Council 2022. Nicola was at the panel discussion of ‘Why Web3 Needs Women at the Forefront.’
Kristina Lucrezia Cornèr, the editor-in-chief at CoinTelegraph, moderated the panel and partly agreed that Satoshi Nakamoto could be a woman.
Right after Nicola mentioned that Nakamoto might be a woman, Kristina quipped in saying that she “believes the creator of Bitcoin is a group of people comprising both men and women rather than an individual.”
The panel was also joined by Sandra Ro (Global Blockchain Business Council CEO), and Sarah Endline (Harvard Business School Mentor).
However, it is not fully sure nor confirmed that Satoshi Nakamoto is a man or a woman, nor is it confirmed if Nakamoto is an individual, a group, or an enterprise. The real identity of the Bitcoin founder might remain an unsolved mystery in the history of cryptocurrency. Nobody even knows if Satoshi Nakamoto is dead or alive either.
