18th August 2019 was marked by crypto enthusiasts all over the world as the big day for Satoshi Nakamoto reveal, the founder of Bitcoin. A website was launched just for this purpose, and part one of the three-part series was released on Sunday.
This part two of Satoshi Nakamoto reveal gave us information that the person behind Bitcoin is a U.K. national named Bilal Khalid. In the first part of Satoshi Nakamoto reveal, the (new) self-proclaimed Bitcoin founder talked about his upbringing and childhood, which was irrelevant for the interested people.
The second part of this “revelation series” is considered even more outrageous than the first one by people. In this part, ‘Satoshi’ confirmed to be Bilal Khalid, a fact that was discovered earlier when a domain name registrar check was done on the ‘Satoshi Reveal’ website. He also explains how he lost his 980,000 Bitcoins(worth $19 Billion) when he lost his private keys during a laptop repairing incident.
In this part of Satoshi Nakamoto reveal, we get a glimpse of what the future holds for Mr. Khalid- now namely James Caan and about a plug for his blockchain project. He reveals how, after losing his Bitcoins, he got a job as an IT guy in NHS hospital and decided to close the doors of his cypherpunk life. He again launched a new coin, AnnurcaCoin- a project that couldn’t survive as it has only raised £83 of its £824,258 target.
People noticed certain things that left them wondering and laughing about this reveal to be yet another fake reveal. The standard of the texts released so far makes it look like that ‘Satoshi’s’ English has deteriorated since his last public post. Further, he used a WordPress template to create the website which tells us that maybe his coding skills have gone to dump as well.
The hosting package chosen by Mr. James Bilal Khalid Caan was not enough to handle the number of clicks on the page, and it was down shortly after going live. In the third and last part of this ‘big reveal,’ Mr. Caan will focus on ‘Tabula Rasa’- Mr. Caan’s vision for Bitcoin.
