Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have voiced a petition on Twitter to have the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences awarded to Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin BTC/USD.
This comes days after the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced three recipients of the Economics Nobel: former Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke, and U.S. economists Philip Dybvig and Douglas Diamond for their “research on banks and financial crises”.
Nakamoto has not received any peace awards but cryptocurrency users have publicly honored the pseudonymous creator several times. According to Cointelegraph, a group of crypto enthusiasts set up a bronze statue of Nakomoto at a park in Budapest.
Satoshi Nakamoto should win the Nobel Prize.

However, It’s unclear if Nakamoto would ever be eligible to receive the Nobel prize, given their identity has never been publicly revealed.
A new report by Aiden Lab, based on a data point of Nakamoto’s updates to the code and posts occurring primarily during the daytime in the Western Hemisphere, indicates the person is potentially based in North America.
