Career

Nick Szabo is credited with developing the concept of "smart contracts", which he introduced in 1994 and further explored its potential in 1996. Szabo had an idea of a digital marketplace that would function on automatic, cryptographically secure processes without intermediaries, where transactions and business functions could take place with trust.

In 1998, he described the concept of "bit gold," which he developed after becoming interested in digital currency. Bit gold predated Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and it utilized cryptographic algorithms to secure transactions and generate new currency units.

Nick Szabo is frequently known to be the anonymous Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. The speculation stems from the fact that Szabo's work on digital currency and smart contracts predated the creation of Bitcoin and that many of the concepts he developed are similar to those used in the Bitcoin protocol.

In addition, some have noted similarities between Szabo's and Satoshi Nakamoto's writing styles and technical expertise. However, Szabo has denied multiple times that he is Satoshi Nakamoto and stated that he had no direct role in the creation of Bitcoin.
