Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? This is the beginning of the fairytale.
What Nakamoto revealed about himself in Part 1 of “My Reveal” is disappointing.
This revelation announced with fanfares and bongos but looks like another marketing campaign. First of all, it is structured as billion call-to-trust-me campaigns or buy-this-shit-because-I-know-you-are-stupid.
This self-declared Satoshi Nakamoto overpromised. And the most interesting part of all this, no one in the crypto ecosystem isn’t surprised.
We still don’t know his/her real name nor we can see the photo. Will it come with Part 3? Or maybe never?
This “big reveal” is more a “big lie” because we are still far away from knowing who is hidden under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto.
All we know is that his nickname is Shaikho and that is Pakistani name. He kidded that he’ll reveal his real-life identity on August 20.
That should be Part 3? Right?
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
Let’s see what this Satoshi Nakamoto revealed about himself.
Under the title “My Reveal”, this “Satoshi” gave his alleged origin story, some fairytale about the Bitcoin’s name background. Now, we know his ideology (a very important matter for Bitcoin’s existence, indeed). Oh, yes! This person, or whoever created that blogpost, pointed the relationship to Bitcoin pioneer Hal Finney (already known fact, so nothing new).
“Satoshi” now allegedly lives in the U.K. and he is the son of a banker who had worked at a Pakistani multinational bank. And his name is unknown too.
Some of his/her claims are so similar to the declarations of Craig Wright, the other self-proclaimed Nakamoto.
For example this part from “My Reveal”:
“Today, when Bitcoin is understood by the advances of technology, but at the same time is being hijacked by greed, I feel I have a duty to work hard and make my creation better and take its vision to the next level.”
And this so romantic tale about how Bitcoin got its name. That has to touch our souls, right?
Take a look at the logic behind this reveal. Cryptocurrency analyst Ledger Status noted that as Satoshi was a master of logic, and the only way he would truly reveal himself is by signing the Bitcoin genesis block.
Also, the @BTC Twitter handle stated that “Anyone that tells you they are Satoshi Nakamoto is a scammer”.
Do you remember how a very alike “reveal” happened but was nothing more than a stupid marketing campaign?
On Friday, a lot of paid press releases were issued arising from a company named Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings. A company’s big “reveal” happened on Sunday, August 18.
And we got it. Part 1 of “My Reveal” by still self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto. We yet don’t have any reliable evidence that it is he or she, the creator of Bitcoin.
We are suspecting that part 2 will be something better and provide us a closer insight at who Satoshi Nakamoto is. First of all, we have one simple question: How he/she has lost access to the coins and cannot move them?
What if all this is another marketing campaign with the foggy goal? Maybe some money-need can be behind this. What do you think?
Okay, we will wait for the end of this fairytale. Maybe, they’ll be happily married.
