Conceivably the biggest enigma of the digital asset community is the identity of the person that on 18 August 2008 brought about Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. The first cryptocurrency was launched almost 10 years ago and since then more than 2k cryptocurrencies have been launched. Nevertheless, the person behind Bitcoin still remains anonymous, which gave many the chance to claim issuing Bitcoin.
This person, surely, cooperated with others in order to create the technology, so some of the first developers were referred to as Satoshis. Yet, this isn’t proof that any of these people could be the mysterious Satoshi.
Despite that, seemingly the mystery of Satoshi’s identity may be disclosed. John McAfee, founder of McAfee Associates claims to know who exactly is Satoshi Nakamoto. His statement was made with confidence and certainty, however, there’s no proof that he had any association with the infamous Satoshi.
The disclosure of Satoshi’s identity will be fascinating. Yet, this could cause another conspiracy theory among the cryptocurrency community. The fact that the identity of the father of cryptocurreny will be unknown, however, the news can lead to changes.
There are many theories as to why Satoshi wanted to hide his identity, some of which involve his need for privacy, desire to shield traders from the government or even his death.
If McAfee possess the knowledge of Satoshi’s identity remains unknown, however, either way this will cause yet another wave of conspiracy theories.
