In the last few years, several individuals from the crypto community have come forward and claimed to be the founder of the leading cryptocurrency, bitcoin. But all of them failed to convince the crypto community. One of them is Joerg Molt, who was recently called out on twitter for claiming to be the founder of bitcoin and owning more than 250,000 bitcoins.
Joerg Molt has scammed more than 7,000 people.
Joerg Molt launched a bitcoin pension scheme back in 2017 and promised a payout of 2 bitcoin on the investment of $500. Several people have alleged that he is running a massive Ponzi scheme, and so far, he has scammed more than 7,000 people of over $6 million. According to Molt’s scheme, an investor will receive over 320% interest per year if bitcoin’s price remains around $8,600.
Earlier, Andreas Antonopoulos tweeted that Molt seems to be defrauding seniors, with what appears in his opinion to be a Ponzi scheme. Joerg Molt had shared a picture of him with Andreas to boost his credibility.
As you probably already know, Joerg Molt seems to be defrauding seniors, with what appears in my opinion to be a Ponzi scheme called a "Bitcoin Retirement Plan".@nondualrandy and others are continuing to promote Molt and the picture he took with me. Molt has several accomplices

Fake Satoshi Nakamoto continues to scam senior citizens.
Joerg Molt recently quit Twitter after a video went viral in which a Youtuber calls him a scammer. However, the “Bitcoin Pension” scheme is still active, and according to the website, the first payout to the investors will be given in 2022. There are several red flags in this scheme, Nakamolto.info, a website that tracks the Molt’s scheme revealed that there is no legal entity or a contract is involved while signing up.
