Elon Musk & Satoshi Nakamoto

Updated: May 12, 2022

Only certain types of individuals actually have the capacity to change the world: Elon Musk and Satoshi Nakamoto.

Satoshi is alive and well, and is none other than Dr. Craig S Wright (featured above), proving what Bitcoin was capable of doing 10 years ago through BSV.

For some people, this may matter. For others, not so much. I won't go into all the politics surrounding these two, but Elon and Craig both have their faire share of critics and are highly misunderstood, especially as individuals with Aspergers.

But they both share the ability to just make the impossible, possible.

What has Craig done? Well, he invented Bitcoin, despite the controversy and coordinated attempts by social media arm-chair experts who try to maintain otherwise. (Craig is actually fighting a major lawsuit to definitively prove he is Satoshi Nakamoto - sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.) But it's actually because of this that he's been able to quietly prove Bitcoin's true on-chain scaling abilities via BSV in the background.

Bitcoin's true innovation is micropayments, not its speculated price in traditional fiat dollars, which has only led to a culture of HODLing, hoarding, and lack of actual usage. In time, history has shown what happens to communities who resort to hoarding behavior (e.g. the mercantilist behaviors of the Spanish Empire). For all the flack they get from the West, Chinese enterprises like Huawei seem to understand Bitcoin's potential better (maybe unknowingly) made evident in how they use the Digital Yuan to track and improve logistics.

But with #BSV surpassing both #BTC and (recently) #ETH in daily average on-chain transactions, blockchain growth, and average block-sizes (with recent 2GB world record), it is only a matter of time before people realize why this all matters.

My prediction is that the fundamentals of utility will trump hype, especially when it comes to blockchain scaling in the long run.
