Remember in 20/11/2013 when the price of 1 Bitcoin reached $1000? I remember because I was in Morocco partying for 4 months straight with multibillion dollar real estate investors. Remember in 21/11/2017 when the price for 1 Bitcoin reached $19,000? I was in west coast USA working with the wealthiest individuals in the cryptocurrency industry. Remember 2021? Fame, wealth, women, cars, food and more women. Life was beginning to feel like a dream until things became a nightmare. When you have the keys; someone on the other side wants them keys. They will do everything in their power to get it.
2009 was an extraordinary year. I was 26 years old living in a 2 bedroom apartment in London. I dropped out of University Of Cambridge, stuck in a dead end job, girlfriend left me for a bodybuilder and my roommate decided to leave the apartment without warning which forced me to cover both rooms financially. To say I was depressed was an understatement. It was hard finding a new roommate because I am a socially awkward person which is why my old roommate was perfect because he would stay in his room all day playing Halo 3 on his Xbox. For 4 days straight I put up flyers around the city in hopes of finding a new roommate. I interviewed over a dozen potential roommates. None of them fit the requirements of an ideal roommate. All expect one. I remember like it was yesterday. It was August 24th 2009 at 07:30 and I was making my favourite breakfast. Peanut butter on a bagel because it was all I could afford at the time. I received a phone call which I didn’t answer the first time. Then the phone rang again and again and again. I answered the phone call which I don’t know at the time would change my life. I picked up the phone and i heard a eastern Asian accent voice.
‘’Hello, my name is Mr Nakamoto. Do you have a room available?’’.
Mr Nakamoto promised to give cash upfront which made me excited at the time because I had barely enough money to pay for my own rent let alone both bedrooms. It was August 26th 2009 at 18:00. I was chillin and watching a movie on channel 4 until I heard knocking on my front door. I opened the door and I saw an eastern Asian man about 5’9, glasses, suit and two large cases. ‘’Can I help you?’’ I said. He replied ‘’Hello, I am Mr Nakamoto’’.
It has been 2 weeks since Mr Nakamoto has moved in. Always in his room on his laptop. It was September 14th 2009 that changed my perception on Mr Nakamoto. Working at the office was tiring. Started at 9 and had to wait in that long traffic at 5. Just another day in the ‘’real world’’. Mr Nakamoto hasn’t left his room or made any noise in the last 48 hours. As much as I love that, something didn’t feel right. I knocked on his door once. He didn’t answer. Then I knocked on his door again. Then again. I decided that something bad must have happened. Just when I was about to kick down the door like an action movie. Mr Nakamoto opened the door. ‘’Is there a problem?’’ Said Mr Nakamoto. ‘’You have been in there for a while Satoshi, what are you doing in there?’’ I said. ‘’I am changing the world’’ said Mr Nakamoto.
