A Nobel prize for Satoshi Nakamoto - here is how it’s going to happen
Nakamoto will get the fake Nobel eventually - but with the Hayek-twist.
A Nobel prize for Satoshi Nakamoto? Here is how it’s going to go down…
This is gonna be a quick one.
Twitter is ablaze right now with calls to give the „Nobel prize“ in economics to Satoshi Nakamoto. And of course he deserves it. The peace prize would be more fitting though. That‘s also a real Nobel.
See: The prize for economics is fake. It’s paid for by the Swedish central bank. It’s a fake Nobel, paid for with fake money, promoting fake „science“. Mostly.
Sometimes something or someone so brilliant comes along that they have to swallow their pride. Like in the case of Friedrich August von Hayek. (The economist who predicted Bitcoin.)
He was too good and too popular in his prime. They had to give it to him.
So they came up with a „solution“.
Hayek only got half of their fake Nobel prize. The other half went to some Swedish socialist who is since then totally forgotten (rightfully so, I know his name but I’m not gonna tell you).
At least Hayek got to meet Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn at the ceremony and the prize did give hime lots of attention. According to Wikipedia, his biographer called it the “great rejuvenating event in his life”.
So what are they gonna do? You guessed it.
Nakamoto is going to get half the prize. Eventually.
The other half is going to the man who will be credited to be the „father of central bank digital currencies“ one day: Vitalik Buterin.
Till next time, Niko
PS. They are probably going to use the word „parent 1“ instead of „father“
