Responses To Amaury Sechet’s Claim
_unwriter, a fan responded to Sechet’s claim that he and Bitcoin ABC is the primary problem of the BCH ecosystem. The former BCH developer now Bitcoin SV state that virtually anything the Bitcoin ABC wants, ABC gets and he sees it as toxic for decentralisation. _unwriter further noted that the power of Bitcoin ABC was a motivating factor in the BSV fork’s foundation.
Also, Bitcoin Core developer Gregory Maxwell explains that faking Satoshi’s identity is easier than one might expect. Taking a dig at Sechet post, he stated that, “So, for example, a couple of years ago Craig Wright claimed to ‘prove he was Satoshi’ by simply copying some pre-existing signatures out of the blockchain and posting somewhat obfuscated instructions on verifying them. It was figured out pretty quickly, but still managed to fool a lot of people– they were too caught up in the mumbo-jumbo to think of the obvious.”
Controversy On The Identity Of Satoshi Nakamoto
The Bitcoin community and the crypto space have made concerted effort to unravel the identity of the founder of the top value cryptocurrency in recent time. Apparently, the claim of sechet is nothing but false like the event of Craig Wright that once claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto.
In recent time there has been sponsored private detectives to unravel the identity of the anonymous founder of Bitcoin. The effort has not been productive.
When the identity of the real Nakamoto is unveiled is still unknown. However, the crypto community is still after knowing the real Nakamoto.
