The origin story of Bitcoin's pseudonymous creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, has seen direct lies, conjectures and its fair share of 'reveals'. Now, for many, it has become irrelevant and every new 'revelation' gets a healthy dose of cynicism. But here we are again, with a promise of unveiling in just under 36 hours. Could it be different this time?
I am Satoshi Nakamoto, and so is my wife
You can be forgiven for having a hint of Satoshi Nakamoto fatigue. Only in recent months have we endured several theories about an Estonian connection, a medicine lord who invented Bitcoin purely to launder money, and a failed attempt at viral marketing (is anyone using PAI news?). Not to forget, of course, Craig Wright's ongoing delusion in meeting with proof of his forgery.
Then when a new site comes up that claims that & # 39; everyone will be revealed & # 39; in a three-part series of posts … counted on taking a (n u) healthy pinch of salt.
But that's exactly what happened this weekend. We even got to read the first part of the three-part reveal, and … it's strangely compelling.
Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings
The site bears the name & # 39; Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings & # 39 ;, and & # 39; Truth & # 39; is as told to Ivy McLemore, PR and marketing consultant … and apparently a man. So far, as easily dismissable as another wasted time on the marketing ploy. The site even admits that part three of & # 39; My Reveal & # 39 ;, along with Nakamoto's true identity, will provide details on Tabula Rasa, Satoshi's vision (sorry Craig) for the future of Bitcoin.
But if this is just another attempt at Bitcoin bandwagon collection, then the one involved has done a better job than most of the others.
Name, numbers and a chip on his shoulder
The fact that & # 39; Satoshi Nakamoto & # 39; Having a beef against the banking industry will come as a shock to no one. The fact that this beef harkens back to the 1
According to this latest 'testimony', Satoshi came from Satoshi Sumita, a Japanese central banker, who presided over a period when the country became the world's largest credit nation. Satoshi was also an exact match in Chaldean numerology (which is also of great importance) for Nakamoto's child name "Shaikho".
Nakamoto came from Hal Finney, who helped him create Bitcoin. Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto lived in the same neighborhood in California as Finney. He was later mistakenly identified as the Bitcoin creator of Newsweek. Satoshi Nakamoto is number 55 in Chaldean numerology, representing the total and complete man.
Finney also provided external computers to work with, leading some to speculate that Nakamoto was based in California. He had actually started his work in Pakistan, later traveled between Pakistan and the United Kingdom. & # 39; Nakamoto & # 39; describes Finney as his Steve Wozniak, the technical genius who worked with Steve Jobs at Apple.
The Best Is Yet To Come
Then share one of & # 39; My Reveal & # 39; is detailed, fits some of what we already know about Nakamoto, and explains some of the things we didn't know. And the best part is that we don't have to wait too long for part two and three.
Part two, available at 4:00 pm today, will reveal more about how Nakamoto's belief in Chaldean numerology influenced many of his decisions regarding Bitcoin development. It will also provide all the facts about his 980,000 BTC personal stash.
Then part three will be published just 24 hours later. Do we finally want to learn Satoshi Nakamoto's real identity and his vision for the future of Bitcoin?
Craig Wright must be trembling in his brothers … or sitting confident in the knowledge that this is just a brawl, and he's the real … Nah, just kidding, shaking in loafers.
