On the 31st of October 2008, a paper titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System was posted to a cryptography mailing list under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. The paper detailed the foundations for a digital currency in which transactions could happen from anywhere in the world, by anyone, without the need for a central issuing authority or regulatory body.
Fast-forward to 2013 and Bitcoin’s value was flirting with the $1000 mark. Beneath the surface of the growing hype, people began to notice potential for improvement. One such person was Vitalik Buterin, a crypto-researcher and programmer, who described the need for a scripting language that would facilitate development of applications on a decentralised blockchain. The Ethereum Project launched in 2015 and would go on to represent an important milestone in DLT’s development timeline. Thanks to the ERC-20 standard, tokenisation of concepts became not only viable, but enticing to the bold entrepreneur.
From the early-days of Bitcoin, to the Ethereum crowdsale, and past the crypto tipping point - the nakamo.to team weren’t just aware of the surge of DLT, they were active participants in its growth. The team combine years of knowledge and experience in the cryptosphere which they’re now channelling into helping people understand what the technology is, how it works and the potential it has to shape our collective future.
The nakamo.to team has a track record of being one step ahead. Through meticulous research and seasoned foundations in DLT, we aim to be the bridge between the world of today and the DLT-based world of tomorrow.
