Earlier in the week, rumors were flying that the identity of Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto, one of the hottest mysteries of the crypto world, had been discovered at last and that identity was none other than Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Days later, these rumors were crushed, by Musk himself.
Musk took to Twitter, breaking the news to hopefuls everywhere that he was not the infamous Satoshi Nakamoto, as had been claimed by a former SpaceX employee.
Musk’s response to the news that he stood behind the most sought-after identity in the cryptocurrency realm? “Not true. A friend sent me part of a BTC a few years, but I don’t know where it is.”
The search, therefore, continues for the true identity behind Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto. What big name will be linked to him next?
