On the site nakamotofamilyfoundation org an unknown author published information about the appearance of abook revealing the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto and those who are behind the creation of bitcoin, Wired reports.

As reported, Satoshi Nakamoto himself wrote the text. The author stated that he plans to release a book with answers to the most exciting issues of the crypto community. However, there is no guarantee that the work will be completed at all.

The text also has a reference to the cryptogram, which is related to the title of the book. A simple substitution of numbers for letters gives the transliteration of the Japanese phrase "honne and tatamae", which means the contrast between the true intentions of man and their external manifestations.

The first chapter of the autobiography, which shows Satoshi's thoughts during the creation of the cryptocurrency, has already appeared on the web. In this passage, it is said that the prerequisites for the creation of bitcoin were the studies of Adam Beck, Wei Dai and Hal Finney.

It would either work really well and catch on, or fail spectacularly. And although I saw many uses for bitcoin outside of the traditional ones, such as narrow niches where traditional currency didn't really fit in—reward points, donation tokens, in game currency, things like that, I never did expect bitcoin to catch on the way it did and to be in direct competition with fiat currency.
 

'Satoshi' Book's First Chapter

The chapter tells that Satoshi first began to publish reports about bitcoin on the net when he was 20 years old. At that time he worked as a researcher in the university laboratory. According to the author, the alias "Satoshi Nakamoto" is the equivalent of "John Smith" in the US, and does not in any way confirm that the creator of crypto currency is originally from Japan.

Also it is noted that from the age of 14 Satoshi was fascinated by the cypherpunk, on which the principles of bitcoin are based. The author writes that the project that changed the world appeared after a series of unsuccessful attempts made by various people. Satoshi succeeded in his business only because he was at the right time at the right place.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
