Next, Sobaje points out that the article that first describes bitcoin technology cites eight earlier papers. Three of them have also been cited by Lipmaa in the thesis he defended at the University of Tartu in 1999.
Lipmaa has cited another two articles the original creator of the bitcoin also cites on his homepage. Conclusion: Lipmaa knows five out of eight articles.
Sobaje continues: “Satoshi was an experienced C++ programmer. Lipmaa created timestamping software while working at Cybernetica.” He lists the years Lipmaa spent working for the company until two years before the birth of bitcoin.
Satoshi Nakamoto was extremely talented in mathematics, Sobaje concludes, and continues: Lipmaa made the podium of Estonian mathematics Olympiads as a high school student and graduated from university with honors in just three years.
He moves forward: Nakamoto’s birthday is allegedly April 5, 1975. Lipmaa’s birthday is very close if you subtract three from one place and add three in another.
How was the name Satoshi Nakamoto created? Sobaje has found three Japanese cryptographers mentioned on Lipmaa’s website – Satoshi Obana, Junko Nakajima, Takeshi Okamoto – and concludes that the name of the world’s most wanted man is a combination of the three.
Nakamoto’s proper English? Sobaje has found the answer: Lipmaa was a guest lecturer in London for two years.
The lawyer has also found support for his theory on Lipmaa’s blog. Bitcoin.org was registered at around the same time Lipmaa moved back to Estonia from London. Lipmaa has written in his blog that he has not added an entry in a long time not because he has nothing to do, but rather because he has too much on his plate.
Nakamoto was inactive online in September and December of 2008. Sobaje has an explanation. Lipmaa was busy attending conferences abroad.
Sobaje continues in writing that many people believe Nakamoto must be extremely talented. Lipmaa has written his IQ is 162.
When Nakamoto became active online in 2008, Lipmaa shut down his blog.
From there, Sobaje goes into detail and finds that both Nakamoto and Lipmaa use similar expressions and signs in online communication: BTW, just and :). And that’s his whole proof.
Lipmaa does not understand the connection
Helger Lipmaa eventually answers a Skype call. He has failed to answer Postimees’ phone calls, text messages, and emails during the day. He says he had a difficult day. “I most certainly am not Satoshi, and I do not understand why he has picked my name,” Lipmaa says.
