Did the NSA Create Bitcoin? That's classified

(Global Intel Hub) -- 5/12/2018 -- Bitcoin is now the talk of the town (Wall St.) and yet we don't know who created it.  There's lots of theories, but we haven't seen any documented evidence.  Having experience in this business looking at the FX markets melt down over the last 10 years in a fraud climax, we wrote Splitting Pennies and explained the world isn't as it seems.  That was before Bitcoin.  Because like for any investment you want to do your due diligence, we started peeling back this onion and wanted to start from inception - and find out who created this (as just like with any investment analysis, it's another data point).  What we found was astonishing - nothing!  No documents, no photographs, no reports, from Satoshi.  Whoever it was created a real pseudonym in order to mask their real identity.  But why?  Now the value of Satoshi's original coins would be in the tens of billions - why not claim them?  It is our logic that it can only be someone or some group connected to the US Government, an employee perhaps - not necessarily that Bitcoin is the brainchild of the government, although that is possible as NSA has the best mathematicians in the world.  We compiled this research into our leading hypothesis in an article here:  EXPOSED: The real creator of Bitcoin is likely the NSA as One World Currency

Our point is not that we know 100% that this is the case, simply that it's the most plausible story, and we haven't uncovered any evidence to the contrary.  Lots of people have different opinions, but they haven't produced any document proving otherwise.  So we wrote the NSA and asked them, did you create Bitcoin?  Hey, we are taxpayers.  They work for us.  Don't forget that!  Their response was not surprising, they said "That's Classified" -

NSA Bitcoin FOIA

While this is no surprise what we have started is a paper trail, hopefully that will lead to the revealing of the creator or creators of Bitcoin.  For those who are not from the financial services community, it is important to note why anyone would go through such trouble - it's called due diligence.  When investors make investments they want to know every single detail about that investment.  Some of these DD questionnaires can be 100 pages they can have 300 questions!  It can take months, require multiple flesh meetings, they may bring in external advisers - it may seem like a circus but if someone is investing $100 Million then it's really the least one can do.  Anyway, do Bitcoin investors really understand what they are getting themselves into?

This article deserves a full read:  Bitcoin Founder Satoshi Nakamoto was probably an NSA Employee — and the NSA may destroy Bitcoin
Bitcoin has a huge risk few consider: it can be destroyed overnight

My second NSA related theory and prediction, is that the NSA will be tasked to take down Bitcoin. While relative to the Internet, blockchain is very secure and effectively unhackable for a criminal group — it is in fact quite capable of being cheated and manipulated if you have enough computing power. NSA probably has plenty of computing power and expertise to take the Bitcoin blockchain down.  Why would the NSA want to take down Bitcoin? What NSA wants is irrelevant — it’s what government leaders want. And there are many scenarios that could lead to an order to take the Bitcoin blockchain down, with either minor disruption (letting it come back with just a few accounts robbed) or totally destroyed (stealing from many accounts and screwing it up so badly it is impossible to restore):

1. North Korea is a major owner, user, exploiter (for computer ransomware) of Bitcoin. As a sanction, punishment, or means of waging war, NSA could be ordered to rob accounts suspected of being NK owned.[1]

2. Bitcoin and many of its owners and advocates are Libertarian and anti-government. Bitcoin is an affront to national “fiat” currencies and handy for evading government rules and taxes. Big Government is very motivated to destroy Bitcoin.

3. Bitcoin has been used as ransom payments for computer hacking. I predict it will soon be used for human ransom as well. Rather than the high risk of transferring dollars, kidnappers may demand digital payment in Bitcoin. This could be a motivation, or excuse, for Big Government to take Bitcoin down.

China or Russia also have the computing power to take down Bitcoin, and may want to do so. Why? China has outlawed Bitcoin, may want to take North Korea’s wealth down a peg (keeping them more dependent on China), and could make a huge profit doing this.

The point is that it is 1) POSSIBLE and 2) NOT PROBABLE this is a low-probability high-impact event but one that any Bitcoin investor needs to understand - it is possible.  Just as it was very weird and surprising how Bitcoin suddenly rose to 20,000 it certainly is possible, that it can really go to zero.  Not because of selling but because the network can be brought down.  Whether NSA created Bitcoin or not is really irrelevant, they are the only agency in the world with the computing power and intellectual human capital (Cryptographers) capable of 1) understanding Bitcoin and 2) through their surveillance network identifying the real Satoshi if it was in fact NOT NSA and 3) Capable of actually monitoring Bitcoin users and identifying a real human based on Stylometry, a technique for analyzing big data.

To understand how the NSA really operates, they record both data and raw data such as encrypted and un-encrypted internet traffic IN BULK for later analysis.  The computing power of the NSA is ridiculous, China and Russia don't come close, nor do any corporations.

Going back to their answer; what did we expect them to say?  Yes, we did it?  Well if they did it certainly would be easy to say it, they have thousands of active projects who cares about MONKEYROCKET.  NSA was created and NSA can be destroyed, if it no longer serves the purpose for which it was originally intended.  And practically if NSA was doing useful projects like Bitcoin it may be a benefit to their argument proving the need for their existence.  As most of us know, there are no real enemies anymore to fight, so having such a big and complex military intelligence apparatus is harder and harder to justify as the new generation of global idiots gets more and more peaceful and dumbed down.

So, we'll appeal it, but will likely get another canned response.  In the meantime, we ask anyone who has any documents pertaining to the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto to come forward.

The author is a retard. The answer he's looking for is hidden in plain sight, right in the middle of the document:

"We have determined that the fact of the existence or non-existence of the materials you requested is a currently and properly classified in accordance with Executive Order 13526 as set forth in Subparagraph (c) of Section 1.4"

Inspecting the relevant part of that EO we find:

"Sec. 1.4.Classification Categories. Information shall not be considered for classification unless its unauthorized disclosure could reasonably be expected to cause identifiable or describable damage to the national security in accordance with section 1.2 of this order, and it pertains to one or more of the following:

(c) intelligence activities (including covert action), intelligence sources or methods, or cryptology;"

 

Bitcoin uses the SHA-256 encryption technology developed by the NSA. This effectively puts a gag order on the NSA with respect to Bitcoin, whether they had anything to do with Bitcoin or not ("existence or non-existence of the materials you requested is...classified").

In other words, this is a complete nothingburger because the NSA can't tell us anything either way.

The larger point is this: why would the NSA invent a cryptocurrency? They already have access to the SWIFT network and can see every single financial transaction that occurs on that network anytime they want. The last thing they want to do is fuck with the status quo.

More Bullshit.  The bankers do not like Crypto. They will never like crypto.  They have the money monopoly.  The don't need the blockchain.  They can use MySQL.  Full stop.

These idiots want to sell you articles and attendant advertisements.  That's all there is to it.

And should have the NSA created Bitcoin they and their banker overlourds will rue the day because there are just too fucking many ways this goes full underground / impossible to control.

"The bankers do not like Crypto. They will never like crypto."

Really?
Thank god you're around to 'splain it all.
You're a real fart smeller.

Banking Giants Embracing Bitcoin and Blockchain Tech:
1. BNP Paribas
2. Société Générale (SocGen)
3. Citi Bank
4. UBS
5. Barclays
6. Goldman Sachs
7. Banco Santander
8. Bank of America
9. Bank of England
10. RBS
11. HSBC, Deutsche Bank partner with IBM
12. VISA
Etc., etc., etc...........

"...the technology could cut banks' infrastructure costs by up to $20 billion each year by 2022."

Major Wall Street banks including J.P. Morgan Chase and Citigroup completed a successful trial of blockchain technology for keeping track of credit-default swaps in April 2016, with a view of extending the technology out to credit-default swaps or even for tracking live trades.

There have also been moves to work collaboratively on setting up standards around the use of blockchain systems.

New York-based fintech company R3 announced back in 2015 that it had created a consortium with a number of banks to investigate blockchain use cases around securities settlement and payments.

This included Barclays, BBVA, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, State Street, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS. A further 12 joined R3 shortly afterwards including Banco Santander, Danske Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and Westpac, and use cases are now underway – for example, RBS is now sending mortgage receipts to the Financial Conduct Authority via the R3 Corda blockchain.

Banks ignore nothing, and embrace anything that helps them make money.

Everything accepted as commonplace today, was obscure/underground in the past.
Those with the money, and power, often don't have the brains to actually create new ideas, they simply adopt the obscure ideas of others, then exploit them for greater gain.

"We swallow greedily any lie that flatters us, but sip only little by little at a truth we find bitter"
-Denis Diderot-

This is how people are manipulated.
People prefer amusing anecdotes (like tall tales of some underground/obscure creator looking to thwart the system) to fact.
Grassroots movements are not sustaining, but they are wholly corruptible.
Those looking for the best gains, know how to manipulate movements into established systems.

Uh, yeah, you're mistaking "blockchain" for "cryptocurrency". They are two entirely separate things.

The shit-token/scam-coin Ripple has made big inroads with a number of major banks. They love it because it's a crooked piece of shit. BitCoin, they don't really like very much at all, for reasons that should become glaringly obvious if you compare the salient features of BitCoin and Ripple.

Bullshit. The NSA could quite easily answer the question.  If the answer is negative there are clearly no national security reasons for not answering.  If the NSA did create there are still no national security implications.

The problem is that NSA, and all the alphabets, equate national security with their own parochial interests. More proof that they are all domestic enemies.

Well it all depends on how the NSA defines "national security", doesn't it? HINT: who is the NSA accountable to? Spoiler Alert: nobody.

Thank you Abaco.  If you have ever worked with them and know how they operate, this is the obvious conclusion.  Many people on the outside don't understand how they work.   Not only have we worked with them as a vendor I have a relative who is really high up in an agency controlled by DHS can't say which one.  thanks for the unbiased and legit comment.

the answer to your query is possibly in plain sight. the iran contra affait taught us some of the ways covert ops stay covert by hiding the trail in criminal financing. drugs were used at the time as the simplest solution. bitcoin and the dark web has always been accused of tools of the organized criminal. well, what better way to finance covert ops than with an unlimited supply of financing in the form of bitcoin. the idea is really brilliant.

crypto currency isn't a real threat to PM/real money enthusiasts.  The PM universe is populated by boomers and whats left of their parent's generation.  It's relatively fixed and kept wanting and docile by the central bank and bullion bank manipulators. 

Crypto is for the younger (millenial and GenX) folk who think they've recreated the wheel (cotton gin, printing press, whatever trans-formative tech you choose). 

i don't know if its any better or worse, but i'm will to have some exposure to it just in case.

hedge accordingly.

"Did the NSA Create Bitcoin?"

Old argument of nocoinzers, esp those with agendas, usually proponents of 'those selling gold' which 'GlobalIntelHub' has long advocated...  So the NSA planting some idea of a digital currency...

12 years before Satoshi Nakamoto published his white paper, a group of NSA information security researchers published a paper entitled How to Make a Mint: the Cryptography of Anonymous Electronic Cash.

That's all the 'evidence'...  which is rather trivial

I analyzed this doc. It is about old fashioned digital currency, it is not about blockchain based crypto. After 12 years (1996-2008) when no one bank, company, developer show interest, there simply must arise new non-existed person Nakamoto and more revolutionary product.

Blockchain is socio-economic model of medieval currency from Yap Island:  All folks see, that your wallet is empty or weak. All Secret Police org love this medieval model. So Bitcoin is their favorite even with 2.7 TPS performance.

why would the NSA invent a cryptocurrency? They already have access to the SWIFT network

Right. Why would I want a rifle. I already have a sidearm. Why would I want extra grenades. I already have a sidearm and a rifle. Why would I want the extra launcher. I already have the sidearm, my long gun and grenades.

All three letter USA government agencies that can classify their records are controlled by Zionists.  How about a really tough question?

BTW, the author didn't write that the NSA must be behind BTC.  They said it was most probable.  The next question is who is behind the NSA and then behind that entity.  Peeling the onion.

Maybe because there is still probably a lot of people who try, as much as possible, to avoid using the banking system network ( ? )

 Leading those people into cryptos by making them believe that it is some parallel system, unrelated to any governmental agency and immune to any attack, thus safe in terms of privacy, could be an idea.

Total Control.

"They can already see everything in daylight, why would they heed night vision?"

SWIFT is one view of financial transactions.

SHA-256 Blockchain is another view.

Remember that in the past the US GOV blocked use of any encryption that could not be decrypted by the US GOV.

What changed? NSA developed SHA-256.

Any chance they developed an "antidote"?

They don't see physical transactions in currency/metals/other money.

They control the fiat currencies and likely all cryptos as well asn monitor the electronic transactions.

Creating cryptos and then selling them as good as gold increases government control if cryptos gain traction and displace physical monetary metals, which they have to some extent.

"The larger point is this: why would the NSA invent a cryptocurrency?"

 

The question is so stupid it obviously merits no answer...but then again I hate to see all these clueless thingy wielding "smart" phone jabbing zombies get butchered without so much as a squeal.

Blipcon...the banksters way of herding the thingy wielding "smart" phone jabbing sheeple into their beloved safe space electronic gulags.... "all watched over by machines of loving grace." 

In a world of NSA slash CIA hacking gone mad, run as these criminal enterprises are by murderous thugs and sociopaths, how the hell can an unknown App like Blipcoin suddenly be "wealth" and how in God's name can gold be purged from human DNA after 3000 years functioning as real money simply because the shamanic Satanic banksters in the West and the Pedophile Politburo in Natostan ghetto Brussels no longer have any and the brain dead Millennials with their prosthetic blinking plastic gizmo brains, never managed to grasp what in fact real money is? The simple answer is that actual physical money such as gold can't be purged and replaced with fiat or blips or BS and try as the globo mob might it won't get purged and in the end when the electricity inevitably goes out the surviving Millennials will wake the hell up or go belly up when their "survival" Apps no longer bring home the bacon.

 

Bitcoin at the incredible velocity of 5 transactions per second is positively Flintstonian in its power, Visa can pump debt at 50 thousand scams a second and Youtube can process over 350 thousand delusions per second. And still some folks imagine this ethereal "currency" WILL go global and can't be jammed and hacked! Good luck with that when the big money decides to pull the plug not to mention the much ballyhooed Korean EMP fries USSA and the lights go out for 20 years, then of course you will be able to "invest" your leftovers in their "Fedcoin" scam and the rigged "market" can continue on its merry way in our bankster rigged cashless dystopia.

Yeah, I logged in just to call this guy a retard as well.

There's no mystery with BTC, because it's open source.  This isn't some bullshit iOS app where only God knows what's in it.  Thousands of well-known hackers have spent millions of hours going over it relentlessly, and have found no backdoor.  As for computing power, there's no computing solution for suddenly mining BTC at a rate that can break the system.  Our current supercomputers are nothing but a bunch of normal computers smashed together, so the electricity requirements don't change.  The only way this becomes a reality is if we make some unforeseen leap in quantum computing.  The person that wrote this shit article is nothing more than a fearmonger that's watched too many episodes of Scorpion, or 24, or some shit like that.  They're the computing equivalent of a hobo standing on the corner with a sign that says "the end is near".

Agreed!

Now, I have heard a bunch of talks recently by AI researchers who all apparently attended the same classes or were birthed by the same uncreative, barely reasoning, mothers . . . namely that in the advent of a truly independent AI online lifeform, it will immediately announce its existence and attempt to join the human vermin.

The first thing a real AI might very well do is to create crypto currency like Bitcoin . . .
