The latest contender in the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, who promised to surprise the world with the disclosure of his incognito, could not stand it and said his name a day earlier.
After numerous speeches by Craig Wright and other impostors, posing as the creator of Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency community is calmly reacting to the next sensational statements. The last of them, which announced itself on Sunday and promised to reveal its identity on Tuesday, did not wait for the “finest hour” and appeared a day earlier, at the same time laying out its version of the fate of the “million Satoshi”, as well as its name and photo.
Surprise really came as a surprise. Rival Craig Wright turned out to be a naturalized in the UK Pakistani Bilal Khalid, who changed his name to James Caan (James Caan). Probably, under this double name, he will go down in the history of cryptocurrencies, but without the crown of glory of the Creator expected by him.
Perhaps the only question that the entire community was waiting for an answer was simple – did James Bilal Khalid Kaan have the keys to Satoshi’s wallets and whether the transaction, expected for many years, would finally happen.
Caan did not cunning and issued the same version that Craig Wright and other colleagues voiced before him: he lost the keys. It turns out that it was a complete surprise for him that Bitcoin will ever really gain popularity and its price will be measured in thousands of dollars. Therefore, James Caan did not care about the preservation of digital wealth and lost everything – both access to mailboxes, and private keys to wallets, now worth more than $ 10 billion. For the same reason that his compatriot in the second homeland, James Howells, did not become a millionaire, who threw the disc with his wallet in the trash.
Of course, the community did not believe Kaan and is already mocking him with might and main in Reddit and other social networks. Nevertheless, his version of the biography of Satoshi Nakamoto and the history of the creation of Bitcoin in two parts nevertheless deserves attention. Kaan, it seems, is not going to bury the writing talent in the ground and promises to continue to express his views on the place of cryptocurrencies in the universe.
