RE: Will The Real Satoshi Nakamoto Please Stand Up
Here we go again, another Satoshi reveal. And this time, it is not Craig Wright!
“You could be forgiven for having a touch of Satoshi Nakamoto fatigue. In the past few months alone, we’ve endured multiple theories regarding an Estonian connection, a drug lord who invented Bitcoin purely to launder money, and a failed attempt at viral marketing (anybody actually use PAI news?). Not forgetting, of course, Craig Wright’s ongoing delusion in the face of mounting evidence of his serial forgery.
So when a new website appears claiming that ‘all will be revealed’ in a three part series of posts… well you’ve got to expect it to be taken with a(n un)healthy pinch of salt.
But that’s exactly what happened over the weekend. We even got to read the first part of the three-part reveal, and… it’s strangely compelling.”
“I’m (NOT) Satoshi”
This is just beyond ridiculous:
“The second part of the Satoshi reveal echoed the first in its long-winded meandering and severe lack of substance. One interesting claim made by Mr. Khalid, now Mr. Caan, concerns the status of Satoshi’s 980,000 bitcoin fortune. According to Mr. Caan, his private keys were lost when he handed his laptop into an electronics shop for repairs. When the laptop came back, all of Satoshis bitcoins were gone.
The self-proclaimed Satoshi says he lost faith in his project when Bitcoin developer Gavin Andresen started speaking with the CIA. No more is said on the matter.
What follows is a tale of redemption, where the then Mr. Khan got a job as an IT guy in a British NHS hospital and put his cypherpunk life behind him.
But he couldn’t stay away for long and soon fired back with AnnurcaCoin – a dead Indiegogo project from March 2019 which only raised £83 of its £824,258 target.”
