A newly launched website, https://gotsatoshi.com/, has been teasing the identity of the Father of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. The landing page of the website questions “WHERE IN THE WORLD IS SATOSHI?”

The single page website features very limited information:

  1. A countdown timer counting down to May 14, 2019, which is the date on which Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity will be revealed, allegedly.
  2. A #gotsatoshi hashtag
  3. An email submission form which says “Can’t find Satoshi? Sign up for the live unveiling”.
  4. Links to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

Altcoin Buzz found out the following details :

  • The Facebook profile was first updated on 18 April 2019.
  • The first Twitter post was on 24 April 2019.
  • The Instagram page shows zero posts.

In twitter, the person/brand describes himself as

“Inventor, developer, futurist. #Crypto enthusiast and #blockchain evangelist. Not Craig Wright. May know @officialmcafee. Unmask me if you can. #gotsatoshi”

and posts in 1st person:

“Never imagined there would be so much interest in who I am. Can’t the idea speak for itself?”

As per Whois, the website trail leads to the below details:

Most of Twitter has taken it as a joke but is still curious. This might lead to a disappointing reveal in the end.

There has been a series of recent sagas with people claiming themselves as Satoshi Nakamoto, the most infamous of them being that of Craig Wright.

John McCafee recently promised to disclose the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, however, refrained from doing so after consultation with his attorney.
