Bit gold, Creator & Designer
A major influencer in Bitcoin, Szabo’s expertise with cryptocurrency started back in 1998 with the creation of the BitGold proposal, the predecessor of Bitcoin. People have speculated that Szabo is Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous creator of Bitcoin, although Szabo has repeatedly denied the claim. Szabo is still considered the ‘father’ of ‘smart contracts,’ a term usually associated with Ethereum, and he continues to contribute his technical knowledge and commentary in the crypto industry.
