Wisdom from Steve Jobs to Satoshi Nakamoto

By xuanling11 | Crypto Learning | 27 Sep 2021


Steve Jobs and Satoshi Nakamoto are giants of the 21st century. Both men may not longer exist (one died and one is missing), but their influence impacts generations to move forward.

 

Their similarity

Both men are quirky and do not fit into society. Steve Jobs was the worst boss you might encounter. While Satoshi maybe moves forward and ignore you, if you could not perform as expected. Both men are forward-thinking, their visions are 50 years or even more ahead of us. Both men were working against the clock and tried to figure out a solution to the future issue. 



Forward-thinking

 

“Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday.” - Steve Jobs

 

“I’m sure that in 20 years there will either be very large transaction volume or no volume.” - Satoshi Nakamoto

 

Steve Jobs always looked forward to tomorrow and work toward it. Similar to Satoshi, he had a vision of tomorrow that today’s solution may be adequate to resolve.

 

Ignore being right

 

“I don’t care about being right. I care about success and doing the right thing.” - Steve Jobs

 

“If you don’t believe it or don’t get it, I don’t have the time to try to convince you, sorry.” - Satoshi Nakamoto

 

Both men knew that being right is just temporary. What we have to do is continue improving and working toward the future. Being right is just not relevant to the future at all because they knew something is better will replace the right one.

 

Opportunities mean everything

 

“I’m actually as proud of many of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done.” - Steve Jobs

 

“It might make sense just to get some in case it catches on.” - Satoshi Nakamoto

 

Both men cherish opportunities more than anything else. They knew opportunities are the most critical element to make the future possible happens. If you have not tried, you have zero chance to become successful.

 

The core business



“For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.” - Steve Jobs

 

“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust.” - Satoshi Nakamoto

 

Both men knew the world will change and their works on their product to solve the future problem. Steve Jobs focus on innovation to improve the quality of electronic products while Satoshi works on Bitcoin to prevent economical inflation created by the government.

 

Redefined what is work

 

“The doers are the major thinkers. The people that really create the things that change this industry are both the thinker and doer in one person.” - Steve Jobs

 

“Being open source means anyone can independently review the code. If it was closed source, nobody could verify the security. I think it’s essential for a program of this nature to be open source.” - Satoshi Nakamoto

 

Both men redefined what is the future of work and created a new pathway for others to follow. Steve Jobs highlighted doers are thinkers and they are the future because they create things. Satoshi Nakamoto created peer-to-peer financial networks that everyone can anticipate, trade, and earn from it

 

Knew the current system was broken

 

“We do no market research. We don’t hire consultants. We just want to make great products.” - Steve Jobs

 

“Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts. Their massive overhead costs make micropayments impossible.” - Satoshi Nakamoto



Both men did not trust the current system as they knew something better yet to replace them. They worked out such things to make the better world we are living in now.

 

Came out with the solution

 

“People judge you on your performance, so focus on the outcome. Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” - Steve Jobs

 

“The result is a distributed system with no single point of failure. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of the P2P network to check for double-spending.” - Satoshi Nakamoto



Both men did come up with their own solutions to redefine the future. The future aligned with their vision and toward their goal. 

 

Last but not least, they are humble



“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” - Steve Jobs

 

“I’ve developed a new open source P2P e-cash system called Bitcoin. It’s completely decentralized, with no central server or trusted parties, because everything is based on crypto proof instead of trust.” - Satoshi Nakamoto

 

Both men are humble in their contribution. They worked on their solution and contribute to others. They were givers to the society to make a positive change.

 

In conclusion

Stop wasting your time and think forward! We are lucky to have both giants to guide us moving forward. Make a change of the future and stop following and copying others!
