"Hal Finney" Meet the first person to receive $Bitcoin transaction

7 days ago

Bitcoin is every where and on every news, everyone wish they knew about it earlier and all said they would have bought in. but imagine if you were the first person to receive Bitcoin on your wallet? 😶 wow how will you feel about that? even if you were the 100th person. but unfortunately we all reading this most be among the million transactions lol cause we all are the new generation of Bitcoin.

well congratulations anyway cause still billions don't know about Bitcoin if not it would have rocketed to 1b$ for 1btc lol

now to the man
Hal Finney was the first person ever to receive a Bitcoin transaction and so many people have taken him to be Satoshi nakamoto and for the fact that they both live in the same home town, they've been many speculation and thoughts about that,but the truth was that Hal Finney was enthusiastic about the project from the beginning.

ten years ago he tweeted "Running Bitcoin" i can also say that was the first ever tweet for bitcoin.

Hal Finney is a cryptographer and cypherpunk and boasted he got all his Bitcoin's from mining but unfortunately he died on August 28th 2014.

his first ever tweet and the first ever tweet about Bitcoin
Now let's talk about it, how would you feel if you were the first person to ever make a transaction of something that has become part of the world economy even financial institutions are still trying to adapt because it has gain global traction and many people say it's the future of world money.

unfortunately he died too early and didn't see that the Bitcoin he supported gain not only recognition by the world but he would have been among the world richest hodlers of cryptocurrency.

its feels good, if in the future Bitcoin becomes the aim of what it was created for, then Hal Finney had made history and would be among history.

Some stuff I should have, but did not know. Like he died in 2014 and he was also the first to tweet about BTC. BTW, where did you get the town information? How reliable is it?

·

cause i was there and was the one who sent him those tokens 😍🤑

if only i knew he lived in a cold world, i would have given him a blanket lol

I suppose part of Bitcoin is a bit of a soap opera, or would many of the devs already be writing some film scripts?

Great man.
If we can bring him back alive in the future since his body been frozen he can see a Bitcoin world :)
Interestingly enough is he indeed Satoshi or not he did say this about bitcoin:
That Bitcoin can not scale in its own chains, bitcoin banks will come which will use bitcoin and help it scale.
His dream is coming true but more trustlessly thanks to sidechains and LN.

At first when I saw his Twitter username I rush to follow him but then my heart broke when I read that he has died. May his soul find peace and rest. Amen.

·

me too, when i saw it i was in a hurry but unfortunately i read on reddit hes dead, so sad and people all still keep tweeting on. his account.

May his soul rests in peace.....

Thats right billions havent heard about bitcoin or have probably heard and they do not know the treasures that lies within😂

hehe...thanks for this, its been fun going through it.

I think that man would have been very happy to see how something he invested when he was not successful right now he is having it, maybe he was a very millionaire man for risking buying bitcoin that will also remain the future and is the strongest cryptocurrency

Filled in a few blanks. Good post - thanks.
