• John McAfee tweets about his links to Satoshi.
  • Drops hints to who real Satoshi could be.

The hot debate about the personification of Satoshi Nakamoto, the name behind the birth of cryptocurrencies' King, Bitcoin, has just got even more interesting as IT moghul John McAfee, recently revealed that he knows who Satoshi is.

Recently, Australian computer scientist, Craig S. Wright, claimed that he was deeply involved with the development of the world's first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin along with his deceased friend David Kleiman. McAfee called all the claims by Wright and others to be fraud and baseless.

I have received today dozens of communications from people and groups claiming to be Satoshi. Below is an example email and my responses. So people, please - i do know who Satoshi is. Don't make yourself look foolish by pretending. I will do as I did below. BTW - big clue below:

The identity behind the internet's first cryptocurrency has always been the topic of hot debate as the regulators and government authorities too would be keen to know the real person behind the name. In the screenshot of the emails shared by McAfee, seems the Satoshi team are Indians, if the clue is to be believed.
