Over what now approaches a decade since Satoshi first published the Bitcoin white paper there has been continued speculation of who might be Satoshi. Over time, various people—myself included—have been imagined to be Satoshi for various reasons. Certain would-be Satoshis have made attempts to claim that they are Satoshi.

A few years ago, following the failure of WabiSabiLabi’s 0day auction site, I gave some thought to how to create a public marketplace for exploits that actually works.
