A recent argument has suggested that the US regulator SEC held a meeting with Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto in 2017.
Allegedly, the SEC and Tim Draper know the Bitcoin founder
Cryptocurrencies have become a trillion-dollar market since 2009, led by Bitcoin. Alternately, despite the past decade, Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of Bitcoin, remains a mystery. To date, the media has given way to countless speculations about who the founder is. Some have even claimed that Satoshi Nakamoto is the founder behind Bitcoin.
Now, a Fox Business reporter says the SEC held a meeting with Satoshi Nakamoto and Tim Draper. In her most recent tweets, Eleanor Terrett argued that the SEC and Tim Draper know who Satoshi Nakamoto is.
According to Terrett’s tweet, SEC official Valerie Szczepanik held a meeting with Tim Draper and Satoshi. According to the argument, the meeting took place at the SEC office on August 23, 2017. It’s worth noting that this assumption was made after Hinman received a copy of his public calendar during his time with the SEC.
Fake Satoshi Nakamoto(s)
Interestingly, the meeting never remained a secret. This is because Draper had already shared on Twitter that they held a meeting three days later. The billionaire investor argued in a tweet on Aug. 25 that a “fake Satoshi” wasted his time and was too credible and was the victim of this scam. Everyone was asked by Draper to be careful not to fall for a Satoshi scam. Terrett later acknowledged the existence of an invalid Satoshi at the mid-meeting of Draper and the SEC.
In the middle, Verge, a well-known news source, shared information about the meeting. He argued that the phony Satoshi had a lengthy conversation with Draper about an ICO that attracted the attention of some prominent figures in the cryptocurrency market. However, when Draper realized that he was talking to a fake Satoshi, he backed out of the deal. According to the text in The Verge’s report:
Tim Draper, a well-known Bitcoin investor, and the professed Satoshi were in talks for a fresh new ICO throughout August, but these talks abruptly ended after Draper lost faith in the plan late last week.
Names presumed to be the founders of Bitcoin
Dorian Nakamoto is a Japanese engineer with the same surname as the Bitcoin founder. He is also Hal Finney’s neighbor. However, he denied all the arguments and said it was just a coincidence.
In this middle, Australian scientist Craig Wright argued for a long time that he was Satoshi. However, research revealed that Wright was only speculating. Even Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin opposed Wright. She publicly called him a fraud.
