A new “Satoshi Nakamoto” is now publicly promoting the narrative that he created Bitcoin. And once again, experts aren’t buying it.

Jörg Molt, a German national, claims he co-founded Bitcoin and personally owns thousands of BTC. He delivered a speech at a business school in Pune, India on the leading cryptocurrency late last year. He’s also on video saying he owns 250,000 BTC worth about $2.3 billion.

Crypto Twitter is now pushing back against his claims after the university promoted the talk.

Andreas M. Antonopoulos, a blockchain expert and the author of “Mastering Bitcoin,” says Molt has been misusing his image to make fraudulent claims.

Molt joins a long list of people who say they are the anonymous mastermind behind Bitcoin and blockchain technology.

Back in August, Pakistani national Bilal Khalid, who now goes by James Caan, wrote a manifesto claiming he invented Bitcoin, although he can’t prove it because he claims that the laptop containing his 980,000 BTC fortune has technical issues.

The real Satoshi can prove his, her or their identity by signing a message with the address from the very first Bitcoin block. Unless that happens, the identity of the Bitcoin creator is likely to remain a mystery.
