Elon Musk denies he is bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto

Bitcoin, the world’s first cryptocurrency, which was designed by Satoshi Nakamoto. However, it is not known who this person is. There have been several suspects over the years, and some have self-proclaimed as such, but it is not confirmed.

One of the characters who has been attributed to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto is Elon Musk, current CEO of SpaceX, the company that wants to take us to Mars and Tesla, the vehicle manufacturer that is revolutionizing the electric car market.

The truth is that it does not sound so legit because apart from Tesla and SpaceX, he has also founded PayPal (the most famous and used online payment platform in the world, which was sold to eBay), Hyperloop, SolarCity, The Boring Company, Neuralink and OpenAI. In short, we could say that he is one of the most important people of this century.

Musk does not usually talk about it

Elon Musk has rarely spoken about Bitcoin. If you want to hide something, the best way not to talk about it. Although that is also very suspicious because most of the technological personalities have positioned themselves on this issue.

He even claimed not to have Bitcoins. How can it be that Elon has not invested in Bitcoin, knowing its potential? Everything points to what is a lie, and why lie but to hide that you are the creator?

Negative statements

Very few times he has spoken in public about Bitcoin, he has stated that Bitcoin is “something probably good”, but that by its nature it is meant to be used in illegal acts. We might think that he has said it to disguise, but the creator of Bitcoin would never claim anything that could lower the price of the cryptocurrency.

As we see, there are good arguments to think about it, but at the same time, there are also more than enough arguments to think otherwise. Until the true creator comes to light and demonstrates it with facts, Shatoshi will remain an unknown.

However, at least Elon Musk itself has now confirmed that he is not the creator of Bitcoin. Here is what he stated via his twitter profile “Not true. A friend sent me part of a BTC a few years, but I don’t know where it is.”
