In 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper describing a new technology designed to solve a financial problem - since conditional values (banknotes) are used as money, people need a reliable third party participant in every transaction. That is, if one person wants to sell something to another for money, then someone else must guarantee the value of this money (usually states and banking systems). The idea, presented by Satoshi Nakamoto, implied the possibility of a mathematical solution to this problem using computers. In 2009, the Bitcoin system was created and launched.
Since then, the creators and adaptors of a new way of exchanging value have managed to create an asset worth a trillion dollars (market cap of Bitcoin as of April 2021). Who Satoshi Nakamoto is remains unknown to this day. Anonymity is one of the basic principles of Bitcoin.
