Satoshi Nakamoto surpassed Len Blavatnik and He Xiangjian. Satoshi Nakamoto surpassed Sheldon Adelson, He Xiangjian and Len Blavatnik as the 33rd richest person in the world on the 12th birthday of his world-changing work Bitcoin.
In July 2020, Whale Alert estimates that it managed to mine 1,125,150 BTC before leaving the community more than a decade ago.
Assuming Satoshi is still alive, if he kept all his cryptocurrencies, he would have a net worth of $ 39.15 billion.
Earlier today, Bitcoin surged to an all-time high of $ 34,800, surpassing Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba’s market cap.
Unfortunately, nicknames are not allowed on the popular wealthy lists compiled by popular financial magazines. Ryan Watkins of Messari writes that Satoshi is not perceived as a “symbol” rather than a human.
Bitcoin turns 12
The Bitcoin network began to exist on January 3, 2009, when the first Bitcoin block with 50 tokens was mined by Satoshi.
Last month, Bitcoin surpassed 600 million transactions, marking a significant adoption milestone. The first Bitcoin transaction took place between Satoshi and cypherpunk legend Hal Finney on January 12, 2009, less than a week after the first Bitcoin block was mined.
As cryptocurrency evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos points out, the creation of the world’s first cryptocurrency was an important move.
The world has changed forever. The separation of money and state has become a real possibility for millions, billions. Thank you to Satoshi, Hal Finney and all other former bitcoin experimenters.
Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey also wished Bitcoin a happy birthday.
Happy birthday #Bitcoin

Another Bitcoin billionaire
Meanwhile, venture capitalist Tim Draper joined the special list of Bitcoin billionaires, according to Kraken’s Pete Rizzo.
Recently Draper reiterated his prediction that Bitcoin could reach $ 250,000 by the end of 2020.
At this point, Satoshi will easily become the richest person in the world.
