In a recent blog post, self proclaimed creator of bitcoin Craig Wright aka Faketoshi has come out and said he never posted on the bitcointalk forum, and all the hundreds of posts done by the 'satoshi' username were not done by the creator of bitcoin.
This is absolutely hilarious given the fact that if he was Satoshi he , we did chose to say something about it now 10 years later, and not earlier, especially in the 1 year while someone else was posing as him and he was still actively making builds and doing defect fixes.
The satoshi user on the forum had real intimate knowledge of the code & design, was participating in builds, community conversations etc, I'm sure there were plenty of private messages as well. There was no doubt at the time that the satoshi username wasn't the creator of bitcoin.
To retort his comment about waybackmachine hiding satoshis post history, it does the same for all other users if you change the user number. It does however show post history if you append the &start=0 to it, all users started getting archived in 2014, eg:
To add to the hilarity, as recently as 7 days before his latest claim, he quotes the supposed 'fake' satoshi bitcointalk posts in his own blog posts in the notes section at the bottom
Finally, in my little investigations into this matter, I came across an archived version of the first 3 topics created on bitcointalk, in pdf format as they were part of the restricted staff forum. They have no real revealing or meaningful information in them, so I find no reason for them to be edited (timestamps date back to 2012)
In the second thread, satoshi makes the following harmless statement:
I have to get the number of posts up over 20 so the topic will have multiple pages, so here goes with a bunch of blank posts.
I found the use of the phrase 'here goes' in the context of creating posts interesting/unusual.
After doing some more digging, I then noticed a similar phrasing in a similar context of creating content in an old blog post from Nick Szabo on his blog:
Perhaps I should take up Twitter, but I already have this blog, and even my short takes tend to go a bit over 140 characters. So here goes:

-Today's Crypto of the Day is HedgeTrade HEDG, and it's current price is $1.8562.
-Since 2/18/20, I have posted a crypto/asset of the day for discussion. I typically begin by posting the current price, as well as the brief CoinMarketCap summary. If there is a video featuring it on Coin Bureau, I also post that. After a week or so, I usually post replies to some of the posts, and I also add an overall summary of my thoughts, if I plan to hold any, and is so how much.
-I strongly encourage everyone to follow up on past discussions and you can still make comments on them. There is a lot of valuable information on many of these posts, so please check them out as you have time. You may learn a lot regarding some of these projects. I know I certainly did! https://www.reddit.com/r/Crypt…enorwood77&restrict_sr=on
-My first month or so I featured projects listed on some of the main exchanges. Now I plan to focus on the top 100 on CoinMarketCap. After that I expect to broaden to the top 200, and then some random moonshots. I will eventually create a post looking for any projects I should feature before I eventually close this project.
-Just because I feature a project does not mean I like it. I feel discussion on bad projects are just as important as the good ones. It is useful to hear pros and cons about every project, even if you are simply playing devils advocate.
-I would say a perfect reply would include at least one pro and at least one con for the project. However, I still feel it is acceptable if you post only pros or cons. If your post does not have any substance to it, "this coin is a scam", "avoid this shitcoin", "this coin will moon to $1000 by the end of 2020", then I will just assume you are posting for personal gain rather than helping the community. If you simply downvote the post without any comments, the only thing you accomplish is having less people view the post. I do not care about Reddit Karma, but if a post drops to zero early on, it can be extremely difficult for people to even find these discussions (which I assume is your intention).
-These posts are not meant to be financial advice, but instead to be an educational discussion. Everyone is responsible for doing their own research. For each project, I am interested in learning if you have any investment in it, and if so, about what percentage of your portfolio does it carry. Most importantly, what should we all know; good, bad, and indifferent, about this project?submitted by /u/joenorwood77
