Hal Finney, a programmer at PGP Corporation, was the second employee hired by Phil Zimmerman, and he was the first person to receive bitcoins. Hal Finney once lived in the same neighborhood as Dorian Nakamoto for a decade, making him one of the suspects in the real life of Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto, a claim he himself denies.

However, Hal Finney was indeed the first person to respond to Satoshi Nakamoto's Bitcoin paper on the cypherpunk mailing list, and he is also the only one who fully understands the Bitcoin after its birth. Someone who appreciates technological possibilities without being skeptical about its prospects.

In fact, before exploring Bitcoin, Hal Finney was one of the most well-known cryptographers in the cypherpunk community. Early in his career he worked primarily at PGP, a company whose core product was the encryption software Pretty Good Privacy (PGP), which allowed users to encrypt text, email, and files. In 2004, Hal Finney developed the Reusable Proof-of-Work software (RPOW), a proof-of-work concept based on Adam Back's work in Hashcash, which Hal Finney introduced Reusability, hence its reputation in the crypto community.

Jinse Finance live report Zhang Jingan, former vice minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology: ABCD is a breakthrough in technological innovation: Jinse Finance reported on the spot on June 2 that at the China Blockchain Technology Innovation and Development Forum held today, Zhang Jingan, former vice minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology, said that A( Artificial intelligence) B (block chain) C (cloud computing) D (big data) constitute the breakthrough of technological innovation. Blockchain technology is a complex system, the underlying technology of the Internet, big data, and artificial intelligence, and it is of great significance. [2018/6/2]

It should be noted that the concept of repeatable proof of work proposed by Hal Finney is the basis of the Bitcoin consensus, but Satoshi Nakamoto did not cite Hal Finney's work in the Bitcoin white paper - this point It is interesting and suspicious, and it is an important reason why the encryption community suspects that Hal Finney is Satoshi Nakamoto himself.

Jinse Finance reported on the spot that CCC will cooperate with Bao Erye to create a new exchange ClipperX: CCC founder Liu Zhen mentioned at the 2018 Global Token Galaxy Conference that CCC will cooperate with Bao Erye to create a new exchange called ClipperX, and It will take it as its duty not to use air coins to help the industry develop more healthily. [2018/5/27]

Cryptographer Adam Baker said he had some email exchanges with Hal Finney over the years, including Hal Finney asking Adam Baker to comment on duplicating proof-of-work, though they never met in person. But Adam Baker still misses one of the Bitcoin pioneers dearly, saying:

"It's true that I've never met Hal Finney in person, but I think he's a constructive guy who's more interested in building things that really matter than arguing about some political point." In Using Cryptography When the punk mind builds things, he only focuses on the constructive parts of the conversation, don't think I haven't seen Hal Finney participating in online debates on the cypherpunk list."

It is worth mentioning that Hal Finney was the first person other than Satoshi Nakamoto to mine Bitcoin and the recipient of the first Bitcoin transaction. In the early days of Bitcoin "mining", because there was no competition, Hal Finney once dug out more than 100 bitcoins in one day, but he found some mistakes in the process and shared his suggestions with Satoshi Nakamoto. In early 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto transferred the first 10 BTC to Hal Finney when he launched the Bitcoin transfer test.

But just when Hal Finney was preparing to work with Satoshi Nakamoto to optimize Bitcoin, he was diagnosed with "gradual frostbite" in the same year. Physically, he was completely paralyzed until the last months of his life. In his farewell post on, Hal Finney downplayed his contribution to Bitcoin.

Not only that, Hal Finney has never stopped exploring technology, and even after his death he is still making contributions to the world, because he is the first adopter of cryogenic technology in the world, at 9:00 on August 28, 2014, After being ruled dead, Hal Finney's body was taken by the Alcor Foundation for Life Extension in Arizona, where his blood and other bodily fluids were drained and then treated with a chemical called "M-22" Instead, the substance is minimally toxic to human tissue while preventing the formation of ice crystals that can damage cell membranes. After that, Hal Finney's body temperature will be slowly reduced to minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit (about minus 195 degrees Celsius) and placed in an aluminum cabin, which is placed in a three-meter-high tank filled with 450 liters of fluid. Nitrogen—which means Hal Finney will be in it forever until humans invent a cure for ALS and aging.

Before his death, Hal Finney and his wife Fran Finney had been actively promoting the issue of ALS and raising funds for it. Now, Hal Finney's wife has inherited his last wish and continues to work hard to cure ALS.
