“My Reveal” By Satoshi Nakamoto
“My Reveal” By Satoshi Nakamoto ^ | 18 Aug 2019 | As told to Ivy McLemore

Posted on 08/18/2019 6:50:49 PM PDT by DUMBGRUNT

This must have been subconsciously lodged in my mind, thus creating the surname for Satoshi. I did not learn for many years after I created Bitcoin that Hal lived in the same Temple City, Calif., neighbourhood as one of only three people in the U.S. at the time with the name Satoshi Nakamoto.

The man’s full name is Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, and he was mistakenly identified as me in a Newsweek cover story in 2014. It has been speculated that I sent an email from my old Satoshi address at the time that said, “I am not Dorian Nakamoto.” I am not that individual, but I also didn’t send that email.

Can you give a synopsis of the intrigue behind this?

I understand this is related to disclosing the inventor of Bitcoin, or the technology behind it, aka a secure cyber ledger.

But can you connect the dots for us so we can save time?

BCCI connection is surreal. Didn’t see that coming.

So I am guessing the numerology might come into play later in the story. Sounds like a hippy so far. lol

For myself it is more the how did he get the idea and why he did it than anything else. It’s always interesting to find out how someone came about inventing something new, especially if it is successful. We might be surprised who it is, he might already be known for something completely unrelated.

IF this pans out(?) and we learn about the creation of the mechanisms for Bitcoin/blockchain, it’s a BIG DEAL.
And interesting,
Yes, I’m easily amused. YMMV!

In addition to his real-life identity, Nakamoto will use “My Reveal” to divulge such facts as his country of origin, education, professional background, and why he has yet to move any of his 980,000 bitcoins.

BCCI = intelligence agencies???

I recall when BCCI was referred to as the BANK of CROOKS & CRIMMINALS Inc.

Also, remember the Hitler Diaries.

And Clifford Irving’s Howard Hughes autobiography.

Some may recall”Deep in the Hurtgen Forest”???

I hope this one different.

No, not me!
It just happened that on a previous thread some asked to be pinged when this event went live.

So I took time off from rearranging my sock drawer for this special event. (?)

My new arrangement will be based on “Richard Of York Gained Battle In Vain”, that way I might remember where the white ones went???
