Pablo Escobar’s brother announces his own crypto and claims Bitcoin is the CIA’s creation.
The world of cryptocurrencies never ceases to surprise and this week the most peculiar news comes thanks to Pablo Escobar Gaviria’s brother (the most famous and drug lord of all time.) Roberto Escobar Gaviria, founder of Escobar Inc. who not only announced the creation of his own currency but also released a book with very interesting statements regarding Satoshi Nakamoto, McAfee, the U.S. government that will be a delight to the believers of conspiracy theories.
The Money Man
If there is one thing, Roberto Escobar Gaviria must be recognized for his ability to manage the accounts of multi-million dollar businesses efficiently. While his brother was alive, Roberto Escobar was in charge of keeping the accounts and records of the Medellín Cartel, Colombia’s largest criminal organization with links ranging from hitmen in small neighborhoods to the support of politicians such as former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe Velez (according to a report by the United States Department of State dated Sept. 23, 1991, and obtained through the Freedom of Information Act by the National Security Archive.
He was also Chief of the Hitmen of that organization from 1987 to 1988. While in prison he received an envelope bomb which blinded him in one eye. In 2014 he was released and founded Escobar Inc. A company in charge of managing the image rights of his brother and family, causing more than one headache for NETFLIX as a result of the commercialization of the “Narcos” series, from which he asks for compensation of at least 1Bln$.

As you can see, if there’s anyone who knows how to make money, it can be Mr. Escobar. His fortune, according to his ICO page is 100Bn Dollars. It is up to each reader to make their own decisions. As a comparison, according to Forbes, this would make him the second richest man on the planet, below Jeff Bezos (112B) and above Bill Gates (90B).
The man Satoshi Nakamoto wanted to work with
In a book that can be purchased at Amazon.com for $8 or download for free on the Diet Bitcoin’s website, Pablo Escobar’s brother tells the story of his involvement with the criminal organization and his first encounters with the world of cryptocurrencies after his release:
“A few weeks goes by, and I am back at the house. Meeting with people; all of the lovely people who have come to visit me. I get a phone call, this time it is from El Conejo. El Conejo is telling me that he is talking to Satoshi Nakamoto. He is not just talking. He is with him right now in Lima, Peru. I said, “El Conejo, I do not know who this man is. Bring him to my house.” El Conejo responded “OK.” (…)
I kept reading in the newspapers about this cryptocurrency called Bitcoin. I didn’t know what it was all about. I didn’t care. Until El Conejo called me again. This time, he told me that we are doing our own cryptocurrency. I didn’t understand. He told me that the founder of Bitcoin wants to do a cryptocurrency with the family of Pablo Emillio Escobar Gaviria. I said, “OK. I approve the deal.”
In his book, he tells how The Rabbit had a series of encounters with Satoshi Nakamoto, who wanted to meet him in New York. But Satoshi’s interest triggered suspicion in Escobar, so he asked for a copy of his passport. El Conejo sent this picture:
However, after his investigations, he concluded that Satoshi Nakamoto is actually an identity created by the U.S. government to control the world economy and that Satoshi’s real name is alias Miguel Caña:
“Miguel Caña show your face! I am writing this book for you to show your real face, and tell the world who you really are, Miguel Caña. Tell them about what you do for the American Government, and how you are ruining lives. How you are threatening people and making their lives worse by investing in your worthless Bitcoin that you Miguel Caña later will sell; sell them all, every single coin. I don’t know if Miguel Caña is the person that pushes the button for the American Government to sell $10 Billion Dollars’ worth of Bitcoin. But I know that Miguel Caña is the one that sent us the passport of Satoshi Nakamoto, who is claiming to be the founder of Bitcoin”
Another one who wanted to work with Escobar was John Mcafee. An offer the drug lord’s brother refused for two reasons: McAfee didn’t have enough money, and his name was worthless:
“We began seeking strategic partners for the cryptocurrency, and I liked this one guy especially. His name was Big John, the founder of McAfee Antivirus, John McAfee. We sent him a few e-mails back and forth. He eventually said, “OK, you want to do a deal?” But we weren’t interested in a deal with him. It was too small of a deal. Far too small (…)
El Conejo liked the guy, but I didn’t like the guy; small guy. I never heard of him before. Nobody in Colombia knows his name. I do not know if the world knows about him or not, but I do not know about him. I said to El Conejo, “How can you make a company with a guy that nobody knows about except you?” El Conejo said, “It’s not like that.” I replied “Well that is the way that it looks to me. John McAfee I never heard of him. I never heard of his name. It’s a worthless name. You know the name that you need is my name. Not the name of this man. El Conejo said, “OK, let me work on it.”
A new Bitcoin fork has been born: Diet Bitcoin.
On the website, he also announced the creation of his own crypto: Diet Bitcoin (DDX). A Bitcoin fork that according to its whitepaper is a faster, lighter alternative to bitcoin.
The currency has the following specifications:
TOTAL COIN SUPPLY: APPROXIMATELY 1,800,000 AT LAUNCH
TOTAL POSSIBLE SUPPLY: 21,000,000
MINING POOL: COMING SOON
The sale has already started with a value of $50, but it is being offered at $2, which represents a discount of 96% of its original price. The selling plan for this currency is as follows:
ICO CROWDSALE INFO: 1,000,000 coins
PRE-ICO ROUND 1: 300,000 at $50
PRE-ICO ROUND 2: 300,000 at $100
ICO (1ROUND ONLY): 400,000 at $1,000
ICO ENDS MAY 16, 2018
Coinspiracy 101: All coins will fall (except his)
According to his book, Bitcoin is a CIA creation. This is one of the reasons for buying Escobar`s coin; if he is right, the Diet Bitcoin is backed by his own being rather than by “the governments”:
“Bitcoin was created by the Americanos, and we have the evidence for this. It was created by the Federal Government of America. The Americanos(…) Do you not think it is strange that there is one man out there who is worth $10 Billion Dollars, and nobody has heard of him? Nobody has seen him. Nobody has met him, except El Conejo (…)
I am the first person in the world, Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, to publicly come out and claim that Bitcoin was created by the American Government, and I am not going to be the last person to say this. The world is going to wake up. The world is going to see that this was created by them. And when they see it, it is too late, and when the CIA founds out that the world knows about this, the CIA is going to sell all of their coins, and they will destroy the value of Bitcoin.”
He suggests that the government may at any time pass a killswitch and bring down the entire network of cryptocurrencies, but his coin will survive:
“The difference between my coin and the Bitcoin, while the technology is mostly the same, the person behind it is me (…)
You are free to buy the coin or not buy the coin. I don’t care. You can stick with your worthless coins. Keep the Ethereum, Keep the TRON, keep the Ripple, keep the Bitcoin. You will see what happens. They will all go to zero, almost zero. But not my coin. Because my coin, this is going to be my new work in life.”
Without a doubt a topic of conversation to be discussed on more than one grill.
