Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity is the biggest question in the world of cryptocurrency. Ever since Bitcoin released into the market, Nakamoto has kept himself anonymous. It, in turn, has given rise to many conspiracy theories and speculations. Many crypto experts have claimed to know him, but none of them have exposed the truth. However, there’s hot news steaming in the media, where Pablo Escobar’s descendants claim to know the mysterious creator of Bitcoin.
The King of Cocaine remains the wealthiest person in the history of criminals, having a net worth of 30 billion USD. In an interrogation, the Escobars say that long ago, they knew a man named “Yasutaka Nakamoto,” hinting the name resembled Satoshi Nakamoto. How legitimate is the news? Let’s have a quick check on the facts.
Escobar’s to Reveal Satoshi Nakamoto
But first, who is Yasutaka Nakamoto? Yasutaka was a highly ranked engineer in the Pacific West Airlines. He was working for the Columbian drug lord and helped him by smuggling drugs from South America to the United States.
People claim that Yasutaka was the brother of Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto’s and the legit creator of Bitcoin. However, he has denied any relations with the cryptocurrency company. Mysteriously, he disappeared from all the public surfaces in 1992 and slowly resurfaced in public views after Bitcoin launched in 2008.
The CEO of Escobar Inc., Olof Gustaffson, testified that Yasutaka had a vast technical knowledge of cryptocurrencies because he specialized in semiconductors and microprocessors, adding to the fact that he might be the possible creator of Bitcoin. Many articles have said that Escobar had tried to pull out the assassination of Yasutaka. The most relevant report says that they had found a pipe-bomb in Yasutaka’s car while his car was parked.
The suspicion increases because Roberto Escobar, the brother of the drug lord, launched the altcoin, “Diet Bitcoin,” by forking the Bitcoin Blockchain in 2019, which later transformed into the Ethereum blockchain. According to the official documents of USPTO, Escobar’s family-owned Bitcoin’s trademark before Craig Wright claimed ownership and the naming rights in 2019.
While there are handfuls of conspiracies contributing to the speculation, there is still no hardcore evidence to prove the statement that Satoshi Nakamoto had ties with drug lord Pablo Escobar.
