Patoshi Pattern researcher Sergio Lerner thinks Satoshi Nakamoto will never move his 1.1 million Bitcoin stock worth $ 10.76 billion.
The Patoshi pattern exploits three privacy-related flaws of v.01, which is an early protocol, to pinpoint blocks likely mined by the anonymous Bitcoin maker. Lerner’s theory states that a single miner mined 22,000 of the early Bitcoin blocks. Lerner also says that Satoshi was likely mining over time and that there is “evidence linking the Patoshi patterns to Satoshi based on public information sources and the blockchain.”
Based on the trends of the pattern, Lerner believes Satoshi will never move his Bitcoin.
“Assuming Satoshi is Patoshi, I believe, based on the history of Satoshi coins, that Satoshi will never use his coins. Therefore, I don’t think Bitcoin could be fairer and more altruistic.”
Last month, the crypto transfer tracker Whale Alert erupted from Satoshi speculation after reporting a large Bitcoin (BTC) transfer from a wallet that has been inactive for over 11 years.

Analyst Joseph Young said he believed that the person or group behind the transfer likely had close ties to Satoshi Nakamoto.
“That is only a month after that [the] first bitcoin block was mined. Not many people can do this, perhaps close associates of Satoshi. My question is why, and not who, is sending 50 BTC for the first time in over 10 years. ”
But Lerner concluded that Bitcoin is not a Satoshi.
My analysis is short: no satoshi coins.
And I don’t want to comment on another miner because I try to respect financial privacy.
Media should check the facts before they are published.

Blockstream CEO Adam Back, who recently claimed to be Satoshi, has expressed doubts the Patoshi pattern, but agrees that the BTC is not the Bitcoin maker.
“People have to chill. If Satoshi were to sell coins, he would certainly sell his most recently won mine, and thus the most anonymous first.
Plus, this patoshi research is pretty much gambling, it probably has fewer coins than people think, and you’ll mistreat random early miners next. “
