Bitcoiner claims to have found ‘long lost Satoshi Bitcoin code’ with personal notations

Jim Blasko, a crypto enthusiast, has claimed to have unearthed “the official oldest known uploaded copy of Satoshi’s ” code, originally uploaded in August 2009.

In an Oct. 7 post on Facebook (NASDAQ:), Blasko said he found code dating back prior to the earliest days Satoshi went public with Bitcoin (BTC) by “using some browser hacking” on open-source software development platform SourceForge, where the cryptocurrency was registered in November 2008. He included claims that it took the BTC creator six months to mine 1 million coins “as block 20,000 wouldn’t come until July 22nd 2009 and others like Hal [Finney]” were also mining.
