Today, on April 1st, 2019 Satoshi Nakamoto himself got in touch. On the Bitcoin Discussion forum wrote “I am not Craig S. Wright. See you in 2140!”. Why in 2140? It’s simple, in May 2140 the last satoshi of the last Bitcoin will be mined.
This statement discredits the above-mentioned Craig Wright since he announced himself the creator of the first cryptocurrency but couldn’t prove it. By the way, this message tells us that the real Satoshi Nakamoto is alive and well.
As you may have guessed, this is fake news which appeared on the Internet in order to make fun of the self-proclaimed Satoshi.
Recall, in May 2016 Craig proclaimed himself the creator of the first cryptocurrency. As proof, he said that he was ready to make a transaction from one of the very first wallets. On his website (which he later deleted) Wright posted a long article in which he tried to prove that he was the real Satoshi. As the main evidence, he used a unique cryptographic signature from a private key which was used in the very first transactions. Moreover, he added photos to this article which supposedly demonstrate the work of the Bitcoin algorithm.
However, a few days later the Australian businessman Craig Wright deleted the article and published a post with apologies:
“I believed that I could do this. I believed that I could put the years of anonymity and hiding behind me. But, as the events of this week unfolded and I prepared to publish the proof of access to the earliest keys, I broke. I do not have the courage. I cannot”
After this incident, memes began to appear on the Internet with his participation, which ridiculed this situation.
