Satoshi Nakamoto’s Birthday - Interesting ‘Fun Fact’?
There is a theory that Satoshi Nakamoto’s Birth Date is 5 April 1975. It goes like this:
1. The user ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ registered on the P2P Foundation website (The Foundation for Peer to Peer Alternatives) using the birth date 5 April 1975.
2. On 5 April 1933 U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed two executive orders: order 6102 "forbidding the Hoarding of Gold Coin, Gold Bullion, and Gold Certificates" by U.S. citizens.
'The stated reason for the order was that hard times had caused "hoarding" of gold, stalling economic growth and making the depression worse.
The main rationale behind the order was actually to remove the constraint on the Federal Reserve which prevented it from increasing the money supply during the depression.'
3. On 6 January 1975 the US Government lifted the ban on personal ownership of Gold.
What’s interesting to me in all this is the US Government Gold ban, I had not previously researched this 42 year period in US history where it was illegal for an individual to own Gold. It will be interesting to watch what happens now (85 years after the US gold ban) when on 8 April 2018 the Digix Gold project goes live and issues gold backed tokens (and the world now has easy access to a gold back tokens which can be transferred peer to peer).
