The BTC community is watching a new ongoing buzz within the crypto ecosystem. Renowned Bitcoin Cash [BCH] developer named ‘Amaury Sechet’, the self-known “benevolent dictator” of the Bitcoin ABC implementation of Bitcoin Cash [BCH], has ‘claimed‘ he’s the famous ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’.
While proclaiming his claims, a post was published on twitter which for now has been deleted. However, here’s a screenshot:
What’s This Whole Matter?
Sechet and Bitcoin ABC were cited by former BCH developer [now BSV ‘Bitcoin SV’] named ‘_unwriter’ as a primary drawback for the BCH phase. _unwriter believes that nearly anything that Bitcoin ABC desires, ABC gets, that he sees as toxic for decentralization. The power of Bitcoin ABC was an interesting factor within the BSV fork’s foundation. _unwriter recently launched several ‘projects‘ on Bitcoin SV ‘BSV’.
Via in a follow-up tweet, Sechet provided some ‘clues‘ explaining:
The Stack Exchange ‘post‘ by Bitcoin Core developer named ‘Gregory Maxwell’ added that faux Satoshi’s identity is much simpler than one might possibly expect.
“So, as an example, some years agone Craig Wright claimed to ‘prove he was Satoshi’ by merely copying some pre-existing signatures out of the blockchain and posting somewhat unclear directions on verifying them. It had been found pretty quickly, but still managed to fool plenty of people that they were too caught-up within this rubbish to think about this obvious.”
Most people have till this point taken the post via a light-hearted manner, like ‘this‘:
However, there’s a more-than-zero possibility that Sechet is kidding, so as to perhaps even taking a not-so-subtle jab at Craig Wright. Let’s hope so for now, we know one Faketoshi.
For this part, the last person to publicly ‘claim‘ he was Satoshi Nakamoto was bitter about the idea:
While we’re on the topic of Craig S. Wright, there’s growing ‘speculation‘ that he might be academic plagiarist:
The story however continues to be developing, as Sechet has yet to post any additional information. The last tweet he made with the claim was a re-tweet of somebody’s else ‘claiming‘ he was telling the truth:
