By CCN: The countdown to the “live unveiling” of the true identity of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto reached zero today, and what a surprise, the stunt was even stupider than we could have imagined.
Rather than expose the mysterious person(s) behind the world’s first cryptocurrency, the “Got Satoshi” website chose to peddle the launch for a bizarre crypto news outlet that features the “world’s first AI anchor.” The anchor’s name? You guessed it: Satoshi.
Satoshi Countdown Was Always Going to Be a Bust
It was obvious from the start that someone would get trolled, but the level of naked deception exhibited by the website’s creators is a bit shocking. With nothing but a series of half-hearted tweets, Bitcoin’s mysterious origin story was once again leveraged for nonsense.
To be fair, it’s not like they tried very hard to fool us.
