Founder of McAfee, us presidential candidate and well-known crypto enthusiast John McAfee said that he probably knows who is hiding under the pseudonym of the Creator of bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto, reports Bloomberg.
Previously, he promised to declassify his identity “within a week”, but now decided to wait because of possible extradition to the United States. The entrepreneur attached a Twitter letter from his lawyer, which explains that the publication of information about the Creator of bitcoin can lead to lawsuits.
According to McAfee, he personally communicates with Nakamoto, which found thanks to their skills on search hackers. In particular, he said that the Creator of the first cryptocurrency lives in the United States and has Indian roots.
McAfee has a dubious reputation in the crypto market and is known for his eccentric behavior. At the end of 2017, he promised to eat his penis if the bitcoin exchange rate does not reach a million dollars by the end of 2020.
