As a result of Ian’s work, “one of the team contacted me.” She didn’t reveal her link with Satoshi, but she seemed to be under a lot of stress, “like they were living in a pressure cooker.” Ian wondered about the Satoshi connection, but “all I had was this crazy person talking to me, and this person knew quite a lot of stuff. So I was interested.”They continued to communicate online until Ian “pretty much convinced myself, ‘yes, OK, I’m talking to the Satoshi team now.’” But his correspondent wasn’t telling him: “She was definitely keeping that secret. But I waited and waited and waited. And eventually she said, ‘You’ve got to meet Craig. He’s,you know, he’s a good guy.’”This led to a meeting with Dr. Craig Wright in a London pub, where Ian unobtrusively put Craig through his Satoshi paces: “I actually threw a bunch of test questions at him. Not that they sounded like test questions, but they were tests that I constructed in my mind, three of them, and each one he just sailed through.”Nothing was said on either side about Craig being Satoshi. But Ian felt the clincher was in a slightly abrupt response from Craig that he believes revealed more than Craig had intended. As they were parting, Ian told Craig that he and a group of his friends were trying to help Satoshi by publicly offering support and arguing against the unmasking of Satoshi: “And I asked him directly, ‘can you help me?’ And he said ‘no, I can’t help you.’ And it was so direct, it was so immediate that I realised he was revealing himself in that answer because I caught him in having to say directly, no, he can’t help that—because he is Satoshi.”Nothing more was said that night, but later, corresponding with the Satoshi associate who had set up his meeting with Craig, Ian says he “managed to get [her] to reveal the full story. And then we were OK after that.”until 2017 that he took a liking to it, specifically the Bitcoin SV blockchain. “I chose Bitcoin SV because the promises were all about industries and applications and businesses, so I thought it was the right one for me.” As he tells Charles Miller in this week’s podcast, there is a lack of digitization in the construction industry.He notes that issues often arise from communication problems between participants involved in a construction project. To address those concerns, Dr. Korkmaz found a solution in blockchain. “I thought I might be able to make these processes more efficient using blockchain,” he notes.
