Twitter Fake Satoshi
After Craig Wright post went public, another Satoshi Nakamoto emerged on twitter calling Wright a liar.
“Liar — You, Dr. Craig Wright never had any digital key to sign, and no single proof of his claims — He could not even transact one bitcoin from my whale wallet,” explains the individual who believes he is Satoshi.
“He did create an altcoin, BSV, then begged to convert bitcoin core into his crapcoin — come on, you have nothing. You do not even know how I composed the genesis block and what I coded inside additionally.”
The new Satoshi goes under the twitter handle @Realsatoshin and appears to be having a sizeable following of 2,800 and has sent more than 1,700 tweets. However, he promised to reveal his real identity after 7 years. In his comment thread, he goes on to leave a PGP key 0x5EC948A1 that he claims to have been signed by Gavin Andresen among others and goes on to tweet:
The same “fake Satoshi said on January 6 that he left the project on safety grounds and his twitter handle by adding that; “A decentralized system needs no controllers and rulers, only the community.” His tweets are crypto focused and how he created Bitcoin.
