Finney became the first man after Satoshi Nakamoto, who, despite his skepticism, launched Bitcoin software on his computer, thereby initiating the expansion of the network. He also became the recipient of the first transaction at 10 BTC, which took place on January 12, 2009.
Unfortunately, in the same year hehad to disengage from the development of the first cryptocurrency due to progressive amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Recall, on January 3, the community celebrated the tenth anniversary of Bitcoin network launch.
