The Original name of Bitcoin was actually Something Else.


Finding a name for your technological gem is just as important as creating it. Weinberger, a bitcoin engineer and enthusiast, believes he has found a valuable piece of history. He would have discovered evidence that Satoshi Nakamoto second-guessed his baby’s name choice.



Without a centralized authority, Satoshi Nakamoto revealed his peer-to-peer electronic payment concept in 2008. The first block on the chain was mined on January 3, 2009, marking the formal launch of bitcoin. Find his image if you wish to recall the beginnings of… Netcoin or in case you missed it.

ANONYMOUSSPEECH purchased the domain name “netcoin.org” on August 17, 2008, a few months before the creation of the first bitcoin and a few weeks before the commencement of the financial crisis.

Unsettlingly, on August 18, 2008, the domain name “bitcoin.org” was bought. The purchase of a domain name is very important for a project’s viability; it even has its own market. In a different way, the ENS (Ethereum Name Service) does a good job of capturing this phenomena, and their success speaks for itself.
