Is Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto is really Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki

Here's my wild-ass guess for today: Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto is really Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki. Let's examine the evidence: 1. Requisite level of mathematical genius; specifically, work on Number Theory. 2. Male, Japanese, 40-ish, living in Japan. 3. Nakamoto is fluent in English. Mochizuki grew up in the USA. 4. Elusive, reclusive behavior. 5. Same number of Hiragana symbols in first and last names of the two identities. 6. Some have speculated, based on v0.1 of bitcoin code, that the creator was someone with a lot of theoretical knowledge, but not a professional programmer. 7. Caroline Chen's article, "The Paradox of The Proof " doesn't mention bitcoin, but gives a glimpse into the mind of Shinichi Mochizuki. Read this very interesting article, and draw your own conclusions. Sources: 1. Satoshi Nakamoto 2. The Race to Unmask Bitcoin's Inventor(s)
