A crypto researcher known as Varun says he may have found the secret account of anonymous Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.
In a new tweetstorm, Varum explains why he believes the account “Goldlover” likely belongs to the person who developed the leading cryptocurrency.
The researcher cites a tweet that dates all the back to October 2008 that he says was posted a day before the publication of the BTC whitepaper which contained language that can be seen in Nakamoto’s emails.
“Yet, we know that throughout history, no fiat currency has ever survived.”
Varun adds that Goldlover is the second account to tweet about Bitcoin, a few weeks after BTC pioneer Hal Finney tweeted the first ever post about the leading cryptocurrency.
“From: Satoshi Nakamoto – 2009-01-11 22:32 Bitcoin v0.1.2 is now available for d.”
According to Varun, the smoking gun is Goldlover’s tweet about the technology underpinning the flagship cryptocurrency.
“It's completely decentralized with no server or trusted parties.”
Varun highlights that Nakamoto used the exact same language in his emails.
“Compiling sequence of key events in Bitcoin’s early history with the timing of these tweets provides this view: Look at points #11, #12, and #13.”
Varun notes that the account also posted tweets about the financial crisis, people losing homes, fiat currency, “digital gold currency,” which are ideas that Satoshi espoused in his emails and forum posts.
Earlier this month, crypto sleuths suggested that Nakamoto left clues that could be pieced together to unlock the Bitcoin creator’s huge stash of BTC.
