Most of bitcoin's 'building blocks'/concepts come from the cypherpunks : hash-cash, reusable-proof-of-work, b-money. So the claim "created as a byproduct of this mailing list" is accurate (although you could argue this isn't the original cpunks list).
at any rate, your claim "byproduct of the cryptography list" is flatly wrong.

same problem monero has, except monero scales even less. You might also want to specify in which way bitcoin is a scam, and more importantly compare its scam properties to the scam properties of your government's fake money.

wow that's such an original and unexpected...lie. You're parroting the dumbest pro-state, anti-freedom, cop-talk one could imagine. Shocking!
