however in this case you can prove its not him with a 30sec google search and it has little to do with the lack of any key Wink

Please explain. How can you 100% prove that it's not him from a google search? What are you google searching? Are you analyzing his previous writings?

Real or not, he's an absentee landlord that has chosen NOW to weigh in with an indictment of Bitcoin-XT? I don't buy it...not at all. And if it were really him, definitely easy enough to prove it. Sign a message with Bitcoin using one of the addresses that contains that hoard of 1 million BTC he's sitting on.

No? Then don't expect anyone to pay any more attention to your rant than anyone else on social media today. Even if it WERE Satoshi, does anyone REALLY care what his intention was, at this point? It's so far beyond that now, that it hardly matters.

A - one of the billions of people on this planet wangles their way into a long abandoned account to fuck shit up for whatever agenda they have.

B - the entity himself weighs in after several years of total silence but offers nothing in the way of verifying their identity.

Is it legit?
Was this the same email address that was hacked a while ago?
If you think it was him/her/they, why didn't he PGP sign this message?


Of course this is a legit message from Satoshi; it's double spaced  Roll Eyes

It's horseshit. Yet another Satoshi Nakamoto imposter trying to flex his muscle as a "puppet who is boasting about being the new puppet master". It's probably one of the early adopters, core devs, Gavin Andresen, etc. Try to think about motive. First, it's a little change here, a little change there, soon, they'll start changing the actual protocol. They've become a cancer.

I attempted to access the vistomail.com site to read their policy on old email accounts but it's unavailable at present. It says the provider may have suspended it. Was it available earlier today, and if it wasn't how can anyone have sent an email from it? Has the provider disabled it because of the "Satoshi" email?

Bitcoin forking is an excellent opportunity for speculators to create a panic selling. This Satoshi post is a 100% fake  Cheesy

If it were real, the way to prove it would be through the poster signing the message w/ one of satoshis mined block addresses in the block chain. Since thats not the case, its fake.

This is 100% bears play.  They want to panic investors and force to sell BTC. And they must accumulate BTC for future profit. The letter from Satoshi is not genuine, it is fake.

It sucks that this project and the ecosystem and economy that has developed as a result is suffering from a potential coup d'etat...it's ironic because the reality of what may be happening to Bitcoin right now is what Bitcoin was started to become the alternative of.

Power corrupts absolutely...how do we limit the power of those that may be trying to take what is not really theirs to have?

knowledge, something that alot users here are lacking. Thus they spread fear about any change and follow a certain group of ppl like a cult. They even wish/hope Satoshi can weight in on this debate.... and as you can see they're exposed to the hoax as shown in the OP.

what if he lost his private key and the whole wallet altogether, and now the same wallet belongs to someone else, in this case even if he signs a msg with those addresses, he could be an imposter...

there is no way anymore to know if someone is satoshi or not, at 100%

Well obviously it isn't real, however whoever the author is he has made quite some decent points.

Quote
Bitcoin was designed to be protected from the influence of charismatic leaders, even if their name is Gavin Andresen, Barack Obama, or Satoshi Nakamoto.

Actually if you really consider it, the post contains only good information regarding Bitcoin. The blocksize debate has caused so much unnecessary drama and fruitless discussions. I would not surprised if a few more 'Satoshis' came up with their opinions. I would also not be surprised if the XT group blamed Core developers for this stunt.  Roll Eyes
