Satoshi Nakamoto, creator of Bitcoin, has been arrested!
Satoshi Nakamoto, infamously known as the father of Bitcoin, has been arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) at 6 p.m. UTC today. Well, the most shocking part of this entire incident is the real face behind the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto. It’s none other than Kevin Hart!
Bitcoin is the most popular topic of discussion in the world today. It has been so ever since the middle of 2017, which was when its value started increasing steadily and continuously. However, the person who created the Bitcoin was an unknown, transacting under the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’.
Anyone who hears the name would come to an instant conclusion that it is a person (or a group of people) belonging to China or Japan. Well, everyone who thought so is in for a serious shock. Turns out that the Bitcoin was created by none other than actor, producer and a world-renowned comedian, Kevin Hart! Yes, you read that right.
Born on July 6th, 1979, Kevin Hart was known for his wit and stage presence. He has hosted numerous shows and award ceremonies and is known to be a dear friend to several Hollywood celebrities. But what made Hart invent a cryptocurrency? One that would sweep the entire world?
During the financial crash of 2008, Hart allegedly lost all savings and was in a state of distress. That was when he took an oath to seek revenge on the whole financial system of the world and went on to create a cryptocurrency. However, his name never came to light as he worked under the name of ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’, which according to him, is his wife’s Japanese name.
Hart was deeply drawn towards Japanese culture and traditions, which made him marry a Japanese woman. During the early years of his marriage, he found it hard to make ends meet, as he had to provide for himself, his wife and three kids. This led him to actively take part in the bitcoin talk community and learn cryptography. He also wrote the Bitcoin white paper, after which the cryptocurrency became even more famous. Although Hart didn’t have the faintest of ideas that his creation would reach such heights, he kept at it and watched his token grow in value day by day.
I can’t stretch this any longer, Happy April Fool’s day!
