Twitter account of the very first recipient of BTC is active again

The name Satoshi Nakamoto is well known among most bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency investors, but the identity behind this pseudonym is still a question for everyone. On October 31, 2008, a nine-page white paper explained the idea behind Bitcoin. A few months later, on January 3, 2009, the first 50 BTC hit the market.

Bitcoin inventor

Satoshi Nakamoto had shared the white paper in an email called ‘Bitcoin P2P e-cash paper’ to a so-called ‘cryptography mailing list‘. Hal Finney was one of the first to respond positively to this. On January 11, 2009, computer programmer Hal Finney shared on his Twitter account ‘running bitcoin’meaning that he has his own node turns. This is a computer that is connected to the network and contains a copy of the entire blockchain and can validate transactions.

On January 12, 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto sends 10 BTC to Finney. This is therefore the first real person-to-person transaction on the Bitcoin network. After Satoshi Nakamoto, he was the first person to use Bitcoin’s software. This has led many to speculate that he may be the original creator of the king of cryptocurrencies. However, Finney himself has denied that he is the one behind Satoshi Nakamoto

Twitter account Hal Finney

Finney passed away in 2014 and has not been active on Twitter since 2010. Jameson Lopp, co-founder and CEO of bitcoin security firm Casa suggested the account may have been hacked after learning it had recently been tracking his account.

Later, a tweet was sent to the account from his wife saying she wants to prevent the account from being deleted by Elon Musk. Musk had before promised to remove 1.5 billion Twitter accounts that have not logged in and posted tweets for years. The tweet from Finney’s wife received a lot of support and love as many people feared that the account would be deleted.
