Bitcoin‘s founder Nakamoto did not want to reveal his identity while realizing his dream. This situation gave rise to his imposters. We have seen many names claiming to be the real Nakamoto due to various financial reasons and the reputation they would gain. However, none of them could prove their claims.
It is currently impossible to know who he is, but there is one more person who claims not to be Craig Wright. Christen Ager-Hanssen, the CEO of nChain Group, resigned, claiming that the company’s investors/shareholders were being scammed.
Ager-Hanssen stated on his social media account that Craig Wright, who is the brain behind nChain, no longer believes that he is Satoshi Nakamoto himself. He announced that he would present reports contradicting the long-standing claims that Wright is Satoshi. He also published a screenshot of evidence including Wright’s browsing history.
Ager-Hanssen also stated that he submitted a whistleblower report to the nChain board of directors, along with five other people, and that they were all removed from their positions afterwards. We may soon see a report about billionaire Calvin Ayre, whom Ager-Hanssen referred to as a “shadow ruler/dictator”.
Craig Wright has spent a lot of time in court because of this matter. Now, he should be concerned that his former CEO will present additional evidence refuting him. We may see all of these above claims soon turning into an investigation by the authorities. Especially if the debate escalates, this process can speed up.
On the other hand, the nChain board of directors made a written statement regarding the recent allegations. This statement says that “concerns about the recent management of the company have prompted the board of directors to initiate a detailed and independent investigation”. Ager-Hanssen’s inappropriate behavior is cited as the reason for his removal.
It is unknown how long the debate on social media will continue, but we may see new details about the plot prepared to scam investors.
At the time of writing this article, the Bitcoin price is finding buyers at $27,000. The king of cryptocurrency has not yet repeated one of its rapid declines in the past few rises. This gives investors some hope for October.
