Wu: Hal Finney is Watson of Satoshi Nakamoto, one of the great founders of Bitcoin, who proposed the Hal Finney conjecture. He died at his home in Arizona in August 2014 at 58.   

I spoke highly of Hal Finney in the series. In March, 2013 before his death, his typing speed was 50 times slower; under challenging conditions and full of love for Bitcoin and care for Satoshi Nakamoto, he wrote "Bitcoin and Me," a heartfelt and touching article.

He said:

I was lucky enough to meet and extensively correspond with both Wei Dai and Nick Szabo, generally acknowledged to have created ideas that would be realized with Bitcoin. I had made an attempt to create my own proof of work based currency, called RPOW. So I found Bitcoin facinating.(1)

In his article, he specifically mentioned Wei Dai and Nick. Note that Wei Dai is ranked first. This sorting method is the sorting of Satoshi Nakamoto, not the sorting of Cypherpunk. Hal and the market were at odds. He and Nick are both experts, which inadvertently expresses inner thoughts. Explain that they have the same view on Wei Dai's issue because they are all involved, and both understand the truth.

Wu: The spontaneity in the heart makes sense; you observe it really meticulously.

Yes. It is difficult to prove a person, and it may fail if the evidence does not support every step. Prove that Hal knows Wei Dai is Satoshi Nakamoto, and it is necessary to capture these inadvertent details in the article to prove that he knows Satoshi Nakamoto. The general research in the market lacks deep thinking.

Based on the same cognitive level, Nick knows; can he not know? Hal didn't necessarily know who Satoshi Nakamoto was at the beginning. Nick had already published a famous article in May 2011, "Bitcoin, what took ye so long?" and Hal must have seen it. I can understand the mystery. Hal is a top player in the circle, so that he can understand it. It was in 2013 he wrote the article. He is a brilliant industry expert. Nick can figure it out. He can figure it out without Nick's article. Hal also understood Nick's intentions. It was boiling to find Satoshi Nakamoto then, and he echoed Nick with his last strength. With his vast influence, he influenced the direction of the market.

The article follows with Hal describing what kind of person he feels Satoshi Nakamoto is. Of course, he knows that Satoshi Nakamoto is anonymous and cannot judge his identity based on his name. But he made a very unexpert judgment.

Next look:

Today, Satoshi's true identity has become a mystery. But at the time, I thought I was dealing with a young man of Japanese ancestry who was very smart and sincere. I've had the good fortune to know many brilliant people over the course of my life, so I recognize the signs." (1)

Here comes the problem: Hal knows that Satoshi Nakamoto is not his real identity, a pseudonym. Furthermore, Hal only communicates with Satoshi Nakamoto through emails; can he feel Satoshi Nakamoto's lineage and youth through emails? Can't feel it. So where do the judgment of Japanese descent and young people come from?

From the analysis of Satoshi Nakamoto's writing, no one has said that Satoshi Nakamoto's English conforms to Japanese habits. Without the writing style, how can Hal feel the blood and age? It is an illogical sentence.

Japanese people can know by name, but Hal didn't say to feel by name; otherwise, it would be self-defeating. He avoided proof. Then rely on the old to sell the old, "I've had the good fortune to know many brilliant people over the course of my life, so I recognize the signs."1 It means I have experience, and you believe me. It is the impact of big V on the market.

Wu: Yes, his words have no proof.

Right. The statement is unreasonable. Contradictions are worthy of analysis. Lineage and age are invisible. Hal is also a cypherpunk; he knew what happened back then. It was impossible for Satoshi Nakamoto, who was eleven or twelve years old. He should have also seen the conversation between Wei Dai and the reporter and Hal understood Wei Dai's mentality. Through the details of Hal's ranking of Wei Dai and Nick, let me know the status of Wei Dai in his heart. Through Hal being a cypherpunk, let us understand that it is impossible for Hal not to see the age of Satoshi Nakamoto. Therefore, he makes an unprofessional conclusion. The conclusion is that Satoshi Nakamoto is a young Japanese. Hal echoed Nick's code word to support Wei Dai. He knew it in his heart but was misleading the market.

Wu: It was in the middle of looking for Satoshi Nakamoto in the market back then, and he came out to say that he wanted to take advantage of his legendary status and influence; he didn't want people to find Satoshi Nakamoto.

Right. Hal uses his last strength to help Bitcoin, to help Satoshi. He also believes in natural evolution, and he knows that the premature appearance of Satoshi Nakamoto is not a good thing. Hal here meant to cover for Wei Dai. Young and Japanese objectively positioned Satoshi Nakamoto, echoing what Wei Dai said, Satoshi Nakamoto is a young man. This echo is very important; both of them are the top guy in the industry, and you can't help but believe it. Satoshi Nakamoto will never be found if Satoshi Nakamoto is positioned in his 20s.

Nick said:

"Only Finney (RPOW) and Nakamoto were motivated enough to actually implement such a scheme."(2)

This sentence has two-person, means that Nick also does not think Hal is Satoshi Nakamoto. According to Nick, Hal denied it, so Satoshi Nakamoto can only be Wei Dai's pseudonym.

Why did he deny himself, saying that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto? He understands what Satoshi Nakamoto wants to do and knows he died after who will suspect that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. The development of facts proves that he is always the object of suspicion.

Wu: A master is a master, and each one is foresight.

Right. Both moral quality and vision are world-class. I am very emotional, this is the luck of Satoshi Nakamoto, and it is also the luck of humanity. Satoshi Nakamoto had such masters who helped him selflessly.

Rare Hal Finney, a rare Bitcoin legend. Hal Finney is great, a great founder of Bitcoin.

Let's look at Wei Dai's cleverness in the following article. So clever, I want to laugh. Hisself doesn't lie; let others lie for him. Are you capable of letting someone else lie for you?

Wu: I have not; I am looking forward to the following article.

While the security technology is very far from trivial, the "why" was by far the biggest stumbling block -- nearly everybody who heard the general idea thought it was a very bad idea. Myself, Wei Dai, and Hal Finney were the only people I know of who liked the idea (or in Dai's case his related idea) enough to pursue it to any significant extent until Nakamoto (assuming Nakamoto is not really Finney or Dai). Only Finney (RPOW) and Nakamoto were motivated enough to actually implement such a scheme.
