The Holy Grail Of Bitcoin Is Reportedly Solved With Mysterious Founder Identified
Without a doubt the phenomena of Bitcoin is one of the most intriguing commodities on the market. The potential for virtual currencies to transform not only the online gambling world but the way we approach financial transactions is limitless. As with every new innovation there are bound to be ups and downs of which Bitcoin is notorious for.
Only this week we reported on Japan planning to redefine Bitcoin as a tradable commodity like gold and silver which would make it fall under controls and regulations. It is not an exaggeration to compare those looking to earn a fortune in Bitcoin trading to that of the Holy Grail. The pace at which the Bitcoin market can fluctuate is astounding and is not for the weak hearted. To add more mystery to already murky waters of this crypto currency is that until now no one really knew how and who started it. While everyone knew that a so called Satoshi Nakamoto allegedly is behind Bitcoin, the actual identity has remained unknown.
Most believed it was just a fictitious pseudonym and that dark and mysterious powers were behind the creation. A sensational report in Newsweek seems to have come up with a solid lead on the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto which could put the myths to sleep. The report claims they have found the real 64 year-old Satoshi Nakamoto living in southern California. If true you would have expected him to be living in extravagance and luxury but he surprisingly suffices with a single-family home in Los Angeles’ San Bernardino foothills and his car of choice is a simple Toyota Corolla.
The report goes into detail as how he was tracked down by Newsweek reporter Leah MgGrath via numerous emails and family members. While a lengthy investigation process was undertaken, Nakamoto abruptly cut off contact when Goodman asked if he was ever involved in Bitcoin. In fact when she finally tracked him down to his home Nakamoto was quick to call the police. He was quoted as saying to Goodman,” I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it. It’s been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.”
While it seems credible that Newsweek did in fact solve one of the biggest mysteries of the last few years, there are still many unanswered questions regarding Nakamoto’s past. There are claims that he worked on classified projects for the U.S. military and other secret corporations. His hobby of designing model steam trains is what enabled the Newsweek reporter to get close enough to him under the guise of sharing the same hobby. Only after feeling confident that Nakamoto was indeed the real deal did she bring up the question of whether he was indeed the Bitcoin creator.
To get an idea of how abrupt and difficult a person Nakamoto is one only has to listen to what his own brother said about him,” My brother is an asshole. What you don’t know about him is that he’s worked on classified stuff. His life was a complete blank for a while. You’re not going to be able to get to him. He’ll deny everything. He’ll never admit to starting Bitcoin.”
This scoop by Newsweek only adds to the feeding frenzy of information surrounding Bitcoin. Only a fool would venture to gamble on the future of this illusive commodity that can disappear or multiply in the blink of an eyelid.
