The crypto space is set to be hit with a storm as the “real” Satoshi Nakamoto vows to reveal himself as the true inventor of bitcoin over the next few days.
Not just that, the “real” Nakamoto also claims he’s currently holding 980,000 BTC which is worth more than $10 billion based on today’s price.
A blockchain company called Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings promised that the “real” Satoshi would finally reveal himself after being anonymous for more than a decade.
He also promises to unveil his deepest secrets in three installments, starting on August 18 at 4 p.m. ET, while Nakamoto says Part II is scheduled for August 19 at 4 p.m. EDT and the third and final installment will take place on August 20 at 4 p.m. Eastern time.
Another PR Stunt?
Ivy McLemore, the spokesman for the “real” Nakamoto, told CCN that “the three parts will speak for themselves. And the truth will be known.”
He also told CCN that this was by no means just another PR stunt.
The “real” Satoshi Nakamoto will unravel his true identity on this blog, including his life story, where he was born and other personal facts.
He’ll also explain the major role that ciphers and encryption-related Chaldean numerology played in the creation of bitcoin.
He claims to have chosen August 18 because he registered the domain Bitcoin.org on August 18, 2008.
At the grand finale, the “real” Satoshi claims to unveil a project called Tabula Rasa, “his clean-slate vision for Bitcoin’s transformational rebirth.”
Meanwhile, the other self-proclaimed Satoshi, Craig Wright — suffered a setback this week when a federal judge nullified his motion to dismiss the $10 billion lawsuits filed against him by late computer whiz Dave Kleiman.
In his 2018 lawsuit, Dave’s brother, Ira Kleiman, accused Wright of not sharing 1.1 million bitcoin that Dave and Wright had mined together during their years of collaboration.
