Well, who created bitcoin?

Published on 20 February 2022 at 22:22

You know it's been a while since I worked on a project of any kind until now. My last project I worked on was in 1996 while I was in high school. I was a nerd in high school but I failed at every subject. I just didn't fit in with the school kids and I definitely didn't have swag. Everybody called me "square".

I played video games half the day and the other half the day I worked on a project on my computer. The computer was my comfort zone. I felt like home. 

In 1996, I was watching television and I saw that there was a place called china town. I thought to myself, what if I had my own town? Well, I thought of all the possibilities and requirements. I tried to figure out how much it would cost to build something of this magnitude and what kind of money would I use if it would to become a reality. 

So i did some research on all the currencies of the world and none of them would work because in order for this town to be independent from all others it would have to have its own currency. I had to come up with a currency that was universally sound. So i did some research on other types of currencies that had no boundaries and I studied it for almost two weeks. 

While I was studying those 2 weeks, I stumbled upon a program called p2p file sharing. Im not sure if that was the name but thats what it did. It allowed users to download files from other users computer and vice versa. It dawned on me then that if I can share files, why not money. Oh boy, I think I had the worst grades in school because I was so focused on making a dream come true. 

Well, I learned some coding on Dos and other Microsoft programs and played around with p2p to get the project started. The main problem was school so I dropped out and took a test at home to get my high school diploma. I passed. I graduated from high school at 16 in August 1997. I was done with school so I focused 100% of my time on my project.
