John McAfee Sparks New Fire On The Whereabouts Of Satoshi Nakamoto, But Won’t Disclose Too Much
McAfee Claims He Knows Satoshi Nakamoto But Won't Disclose Who
The cryptocurrency ecosystem that has been uneventful for long has been given a reason to feel alive again with the news of Craig Wright filing for copyright on the original Bitcoin whitepaper. As expected, the industry's big players are having none of it and have publicly put down wright's move, a unifying factor that has once again brought the crypto verse together and have distracted its members, at least for the time being, from the market issues.
Debate On Bitcoin Creator's Identity Resurfaces
Since the topic of who Satoshi Nakamoto really is has come up again in discussions, a lot of popular individuals have made their opinions known on the matter and one of them is John McAfee. McAfee, speaking on a recent online podcast, revealed his reason for keeping the identity of the “real Satoshi Nakamoto’s” a secret.
McAfee stated that his reason for not revealing the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto was because it wouldn't be in his best interest as it could lead to his extradition since that would mean offending one of the world's richest men and finding a place in his black book. Not really what anyone would be looking forward to, especially if the way to avoid it is to keep a closed mouth. In his words:
“I cannot tolerate any further legal activities pointed at me. But if you take the white paper and you run the modern analysis against it and analysis of other papers, assuming that satoshi wrote other things, which he did, it’s an open and shut case.”
McAfee: Nakamoto Is Not Hard To Find
As the interview progressed, McAfee was heard saying that whoever Satoshi Nakamoto is, getting through to “he/she/they” was an easy task and “any fool could find them.” He also said that revealing who Nakamoto is will be a great disservice to the individual or group as the real Nakamoto wants to remain unknown.
McAfee dismissed all claims made by people to being the creator of Bitcoin and hinted that the enigmatic man may be hiding in The Bahamas, a country with no income tax. He further made a bold prediction on the price of Bitcoin, stating that the digital asset would certainly reach $1 million by the end of 2020, the reason he decided to go long.
The software pioneer ended the podcast by raining accolades on the crypto industry, saying:
“This is a ‘new world’ demanding a ‘new paradigm’ starting from brand new location, which did not even exist 10 years ago. So wake up.”
