American businessman Daniel Steven Peña also known as Dan Pena claims to know who he is the person behind bitcoin. He believes bitcoin is a Russian conspiracy designed to overtake the world financially, and the man behind leading cryptocurrency is non-other than Russian President Vladimir Putin. He also claimed that BTC would inevitably go down to zero.
Earlier, Dan Pena said that earning from investing in bitcoin is like finding a thousand dollar bill on the street. And he also called bitcoin investors imbeciles and retarded. However, the American businessman did not have any proof to back up his outrageous claims. He thinks it is Russia’s conspiracy to mess up America’s economy via bitcoin.
He claimed that he advised bitcoin investors to sell half of their coins back in December 2017 when bitcoin peaked. Many from the crypto community mocked Dan Pena for making such baseless claims. And many dismissed his claims for creating FUD in the market.
