Making a case for

Satoshi Nakamoto

getting a Nobel Prize: December 15, 2022

Satoshi Nakamoto revolutionized how we perceive money by creating bitcoin in 2009.

Back in 2016, Bhagwan Chowdhry, Professor of Finance at UCLA, nominated Nakamoto for the Nobel Prize in economics.

However, the committee, unfortunately, rejected this out of hand, due to Nakamoto's infamous anonymity.

Many think the creation of Bitcoin marks the most drastic innovation in the economic sphere and should be directly honored as such.

Michael Saylor had tweeted last year that Nakamoto deserves a Nobel Prize in economics for creating bitcoin.

It is not an exaggeration to suggest that the creator of bitcoin is worthy of a Nobel Prize.

Bitcoin’s invention has sprouted an industry that is now worth over trillions of dollars and has created an economy of its own.
