Media Speculation Grows that Satoshi will Reveal Himself as Early as The Weekend

Fri Apr 08, 2016 10:18 pm

web: ... -9-10-2016


A major warning that this is likely to be total bullshit, but there's a lot of attention garnering around it, so the claims are being addressed here.

There's been speculation swirling lately, recently from the Financial Times, and nowThe Mirror, that Craig Wright will be revealing and verifying himself to be Satoshi Nakamoto, creator of bitcoin protocol:


The Mirror is just a low-tier tabloid that has published garbage anonymousfalse claims about ISIS holding bitcoin in the past, so they are not a credible outlet, and especially not credible on bitcoin stories.

However, as the news spreads in the mainstream, and as this could be a major media event, about a story that may very well be false, it may affect the market as well.

Keep in mind that volatility is at some of its lowest levels in a long time (source):


We are due for volatility in one direction of another. And if this technical fact coincides with a major media FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) bomb hits, that direction might be down.

This post is not intended to alarm or anything, merely to alert that this is something the media is planning and there has been info coming out about this, which may itself affect the market. It may be a self-fulfilling prophecy by those behind it, but either way, it is something to consider while we are inevitably going to awake from this low volatility period.

​Happy trading.

We can only hope that he still has commit access and reveals himself by increasing the blocksize.
All Satoshi could do is offer advice one way or the other. Sure, it could affect things, but I don't think it would matter all that much.
People are realizing that Bitcoin is open source for a reason - no-one has exclusive control over its development.

How to evaluate a claim that a certain person is Satoshi Nakamoto

If someone steps forward to claim that they are Satoshi Nakamoto, or is outed as such, there likely will be evidence put forward to substantiate the claim. We thought it would be useful to write down some facts that could be used by journalists and other curious individuals in assessing the credibility of any such evidence.

We don’t believe it matters who Satoshi is, but his identity is arguably of public interest and any purported revelation will be covered in the press. Given that the media has twice identified the wrong person based on mistaken readings of circumstantial evidence, we wanted to put down some notes on how to critically assess evidence that a certain person is Satoshi. ... ef=2&pli=1
