No further information about the personality of Satoshi Nakamoto is known.
Net Worth of Satoshi Nakamoto
Almost 1 million bitcoins or even more are owned by Satoshi Nakamoto which at present is a net worth of $ 2.6 billion. He has mined his name I the Genesis block in January 2009 but from 2010, Satoshi Nakamoto was not communicating with anyone. And during this period the Bitcoin came into the existence.

A famous journalist of an American business magazine claimed Hal Finney as Satoshi Nakamoto because he was the first person to use the bitcoin software, file bug reports and make improvements in the bitcoin software. Also, the writing analysis of the Finney has a close resemblance to the writing of Santoshi Nakamoto.
