全世界有数百万名比特币持有者，今年 9 月下旬的某一天时全球每天交易 24 万“枚”比特币，按照当天的比特币美元价格计算高达 5600 万美元。
这种以加密代码形态存在的虚拟货币已经风靡全球，以至于它的发明者“中本聪”刚刚被经济和金融学界提名为诺奖候选人。昨天加州大学洛杉矶分校的金融学教授 Bhagwan Chowdhry 在赫芬顿邮报（Huffinton Post）上撰文表示，已经提名中本聪（Satoshi Nakamoto）为 2016 年诺贝尔奖经济学奖的候选人。
自从 2010 年最后一次在比特币社区以“中本聪”的账号名称露面回帖之后，这位比特币的发明者，传说中的数学家、密码学家至今没有在网上或现实生活中公开露面过。根据 Tech2ipo 的一篇报道，截止至 2014 年， 外界估算“中本聪”本人可能持有多达一百万枚比特币，按照今天的美元比价计算，大约价值 3.7 亿美元。
去年三月，《新闻周刊》记者莉亚·古德曼在美国加州 Temple City 找到了一位姓名为多利安·中本（Dorian Nakamoto）的男子，将其认作为“中本聪”并率队对其大肆“采访”。多利安·中本家住洛杉矶圣贝纳蒂诺山脚下，今年 65 岁，是一名日裔美国人，毕业于加州州立理工大学，获物理学士学位。1973 年他 23 岁时将自己的名字从中本聪（Satoshi Nakamoto）更改为多利安·普伦蒂斯·中本聪（Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto），之后便不再使用原名，并使用多利安·S·中本作为签名。
去年九月，一位匿名黑客“LulzClerk”在 Pastbin 上发帖，声称自己黑入了“中本聪” 2010 年沉寂之前，在比特币社区个人账号所用的电子邮件地址：email@example.com。该黑客提供了自己取得该邮箱控制权的证据：两张截图，显示名叫“中本聪”的邮箱主人于 2013 年 6 月 14 日在 Card Reader Factory 购买了一款读卡器，订单发票寄送和送货地址为密苏里州圣路易斯某地。
有趣的是，在 LulzClerk 黑入该电子邮件之后，邮件的原控制者还曾多次成功修改密码，只不过之后又被这名黑客夺取控制权。科技媒体 Motherboard 尝试跟这个电子邮件取得联系，发现先后联系上了两个人，一个是黑客，另一个则是“主人”。这名“主人”对 Motherbord 表示，自己只是出于兴趣偶然获得了邮箱地址和密码。目前尚无公开的证据可以确认这名“主人”就是“中本聪”本人。
“中本聪”的身世之谜，成为了除了比特币的实时比价以及新的加密技术之外，最让比特币玩家们关心的话题。提名中本聪参选诺奖的 Bhagwan Chowdhry 认为，如果要找对经济体系造成了巨大的颠覆式的影响，比特币发明者的名字瞬间就跳入他的脑海中：
根据 2016 年诺奖评选、开奖和颁奖的日程设置，明年的 10 月评选结果才会公布，而颁奖典礼将设在 12 月。也就是说，不管“中本聪”是否能够被成功提名进而参选、进而获奖，至少要到一年后才能揭晓了。
Nakamoto So was nominated for the Nobel prize, but no one in the world could find him
Millions of bitcoin holders around the world, one day in late September this year, the world traded 240 thousand per day "bitcoin" bitcoin, according to the day’s bitcoin dollar price of up to $56 million.
The virtual currency, built in the form of encrypted code, has swept the world so that its inventor, central China, has just been nominated by the economic and financial community as a Nobel candidate. Yesterday, University of California at Los Angeles finance professor Bhagwan Chowdhry at the Huffington post (Huffinton Post) on the author said, has named Nakamoto (Satoshi Nakamoto) for the 2016 Nobel prize in economics prize.
Today, however, no one in the world can find him.
Since 2010, the last time in the bitcoin community to Nakamoto account name appeared replies, the bitcoin inventor, mathematician and cryptographer in legend has not online or in real life in public appearances too. According to a report by Tech2ipo, as of 2014, the estimate was that the company could hold as many as one million bitcoins, valued at about $370 million in today’s dollar value.
Last March, the "Newsweek" reporter Liya Goodman in the United States of California Temple City found a name for Dorian in the (Dorian Nakamoto) man, be regarded as Nakamoto and led the team of the "big" interview". In Losangeles Dorian – lived in San Benedetto, at the foot of the mountain, 65 years old this year, is a Japanese American, graduated from California Polytechnic State University, with a bachelor’s degree in physics. In 1973 he was 23 years old when his name from the Cong (Satoshi Nakamoto) Dorian Prentiss Dibengtson (Dorian Prentice Satoshi changed to Nakamoto), after they no longer use the original name, and the use of Dorian – S – in the signature as.
Because of the "Newsweek" and subsequent media interviews on the size of your life has caused the infestation of prostate cancer in the Dorian – later suffered a stroke. He tried to alarm, once will be "Newsweek" to court.
Last September, an anonymous hacker "LulzClerk" in the Pastbin post, claiming black into Nakamoto before 2010, used in the bitcoin community personal account email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The hacker provides herself the mailbox control evidence: two screenshots, display name Nakamoto mailbox owner in June 14, 2013 in Card Reader Factory to buy a card reader, sending orders invoices and shipping address for the state of Missouri in Saint Louis province.
Interestingly, after the LulzClerk hacked into the e-mail, the original controller of the message had repeatedly successfully modified the password, but was later taken control of the hacker. Motherboard, a technology media, tried to get in touch with the email and found that two people had been contacted, one was a hacker and the other was "the host."". The owner told Motherbord that he had accidentally got his email address and password. At present, there is no public evidence to confirm that the name "master" is "Zhong Cong cong" himself.
The mystery of the life story of "Ben cong" has become the topic of interest for bitcoin players in addition to the real-time exchange rate of bitcoin and the new encryption technology. Bhagwan Chowdhry, who nominated the candidate for the Nobel Prize, believes that the name of the bitcoin inventor immediately jumped into his mind if he wanted to find a huge subversive effect on the economy:
Not only the Nakamoto contribution will completely change our way of thinking about money, the central bank is likely to subvert the play in the role of monetary policy, and will destroy this high cost such as Western Union remittance services, the complete elimination of such as Visa, MasterCard and Paypal 2-4% they charge intermediary transaction tax, eliminating troublesome and expensive notary and intermediary services, in fact it will completely change the way of contract law.
According to the 2016 Nobel award, lottery and award schedule, next year’s October results will be announced, and the presentation ceremony will be held in December. That is to say, no matter whether "Zhong Cong cong" can be successfully nominated, and then run, and then won the prize, at least a year later can be announced.
