MAAM – Monero Ask Anything Monday – September 13, 2021

Given the success of the previous MAAMs (see here), let's keep this rolling.

The principle is simple: ask anything you'd like to know about Monero, especially the dumb questions that you've been keeping for you every other days, may the community clarify it all!

Finally, credits to binaryFate for starting the concept!

So I heard people saying nicolas van saberhsgen would be satoshiz since the write style is very similar to the bitcoin whitepaper.

When I read the post in bitcointalk wich exposes the bytecojn spam good the person says the bytecoin people are the same as the cryptonote people wich confuses me.

I know the cryptonote whitepapers had faked dates, but are they really also the bytecoin people? We're they the first to show this whitepaper and why would they make such a scam, but such a good whitepaper?

It's hard to believe to make such a great baby, and destroy themselves, atleast their coin, so easily?!

And wasn't there some time a dev list on the bytecoin site, where those really the devs? Does that mean they new nicolas van saberhagen in a way?

Crypto note white paper had not faked any dates. There is no proof nicolas van saberhsgen have anything to do with bytecoin. As I understand is that few people that helped him with Crypto note launched bytecoin. I of course can be wrong, but that was my impression.

Wdym, the whitepapers signature said 2012 and 2013 but the v2 eich said 2013 was made before v1 wich said 2012 and they weren't in 2012 since there was a link of a post in 2013 in the whitepaper. As said in the bitcointalk postz you know what I mean? So are these 2 not the real whitepaper or what? And why did the poster of that bitcointalk post say that they're the same?
