Bitcoin Cash developer Amaury Sechet fired up the crypto community after he declared himself as the real Satoshi Nakamoto and in today’s bitcoin news we will see what evidence he has to support it. He has called himself the ‘’benevolent dictator’’ of the Bitcoin ABC before.
He posted took it to Twitter where he posted:
‘’I am Satoshi Nakamoto. There it is said and I can prove it.’’
He later deleted the tweet.
Sechet and Bitcoin ABC were quoted by the former Bitcoin Cash Developer now the developer of Bitcoin SV that they are both problematic and that there is seriously something wrong with the Bitcoin ABC. Bitcoin SV developer explained in simply as:
‘’The primary problem for the BCH ecosystem is that Sechet believes that virtually anything that Bitcoin ABC wants, ABC gets, which is toxic for decentralization.’’
A post by Bitcoin Core developer Gregory Maxwell, gives a good explanation that anyone can claim to be Satoshi since it is relatively easy to fake it contrary to the popular opinion that is really, really hard. He said:
“So, for example, a couple years ago Craig Wright claimed to ‘prove he was Satoshi’ by simply copying some pre-existing signatures out of the blockchain and posting somewhat obfuscated instructions on verifying them. It was figured out pretty quickly, but still managed to fool a lot of people– they were too caught up in the mumbojumbo to think of the obvious.”
There is a chance that Sechet is faking it and mocking Craig Wright but the story is still developing and Sechet is expected to provide some further information.
