John McAfee Won’t Reveal Who Satoshi Nakamoto Is Due to US Extradition Request to the Bahamas


John McAfee Says That Satoshi Is Furious, Based on a Recent Conversation

Anyone that has been following along with the drama in the crypto world knows about the claims that Craig Wright has made, saying that he is Satoshi, the creator of Bitcoin. With conflicts between the exchanges, John McAfee saw an opportunity, exposing information slowly on Twitter about the true identity of Satoshi.

At the time, McAfee announced that he was sick of all of the lies, and he said he would be slowly unraveling clues that would ultimately show who Satoshi is, unless the Bitcoin creator decided to show himself. However, it looks like that plan has come to a halt for now, as McAfee faces legal action. Based on an “imminent” extradition request, the tech mogul’s attorney believed that deciding to expose Satoshi’s identity would be a threat to the safety of the user.

Previously, publications like CCN had suggested that McAfee would ultimately back off from exposing Satoshi, and that he would say that he would damage the crypto community. Thomas Lee of Fundstrat chimed in on the situation, saying that it is possible that BTC price and the community could both be at risk, even though McAfee had already confirmed that he wouldn’t be going through with the release because of the attorney’s recommendations.

There are plenty of people that think that McAfee is simply trying to keep his name present and relevant, considering that McAfee has shown interest in claiming the U.S. presidency. Both skeptics and believers have said that the discussions on Satoshi is most likely nothing more than work towards the aforementioned goal.

When speaking with Bloomberg, McAfee stated that he is “one of the best” technologists,” and that discovering the identity of Satoshi was easy, considering that he’s been “tracking people” for his “entire life.” However, he took the discussion a little further, adding that he has even spoken with Satoshi, and that “he is not a happy camper” with how McAfee has tried to expose her.

For now, McAfee remains outside of the U.S., remaining in the Bahamas. However, with a chance at being elected, it’s possible that he’ll feel bold enough to promise to reveal this information. Regardless of how his extradition and current predicament unfolds, there is likely to be some legal issues ahead of him, based on what he told Bloomberg. However, the experience that he’s been giving the crypto community lately could be summed up with a fact that is very John McAfee – “If you own the facts, you may distort them as you like.”

Even though it is clear that extradition has happened already, the announcement is preceded by posts from “theemrsmcafee,” the wife of John McAfee. Apparently, she’d had enough of the incessant posts and replies on Twitter, because only the power of a spouse could make McAfee “unavailable to everyone except” her for a few days. However, she teased followers that he would “return him” to the people when she decides that he is ready to come back.

It took a few days and many posts from the Mrs., but McAfee joyfully posted that he is “back” on April 23rd, joking that his “jailer” had set him free. Explaining that he had been dealing with “issues” regarding the NSA, Satoshi, and extradition.

He followed through with his promise to spam followers, saying that the NSA knows about three of the 11 phones owns, and that they had put software on two of them.

He also included an impact of a letter from his extradition lawyer, explaining that it could “influence the trial and risk [his] extradition,” if he were to choose to release Satoshi’s identity.
