Craig Wright, the founder of Bitcoin SV (BSV) has been out to prove himself as the real Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous creator of the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), risking a lot like his relationship with crypto big guns such as John McAfee, the British-American computer programmer; Changpeng Zhao, Binance (BNB) CEO, and a host of crypto exchanges who had already delisted BSV from their platforms.
Due to Craig Wright’s persistent claim, Binance, the largest crypto exchange in the world had taken vast decision to delist Bitcoin SV (BSV), a digital asset created by Wright.
The move was followed by two other notable exchanges, Shapeshift and Kraken. However, the delisting actions and threats seemed not to affect his stance as he continues to identify himself as the real Satoshi Nakamoto.
Meanwhile, twitter addict and crypto pundit, John McAfee, has been airing a lot of opinions about the identity of Satoshi in his comfort via his Twitter handle.
In one of his tweets, McAfee threatened to reveal his identity if he fails to show himself to the world in order to kill the controversy surrounding his personality.
However, a lot of crypto pundits have opined that Satoshi Makamoto’s identity revelation could leave a negative impact on the market price of Bitcoin (BTC) and other alternative digital assets.
Why it’s not Yet Time to Reveal Satoshi Nakamoto’s Identity
Now that Bitcoin (BTC) is enjoying a bullish run in the cryptocurrency market as it experienced about 36% jump in the month of April, broke through resistance as the fable ‘golden cross’ formation occurred which is significant to more bullish gains.
During an interaction with Bloomberg, the outspoken antivirus chief said he has rescinded from revealing the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto on legal grounds.
McAfee said “The US extradition request to the Bahamas is imminent. I met with Mario Gray, my extradition lawyer, and it is now clear that releasing the identity of Satoshi at this time could influence the trial and risk my extradition. I cannot risk that. I’ll wait.”

McAfee said Satoshi is not pleased with his determination to reveal his elusive identity to the world; “I’ve spoken with him, and he is not a happy camper about my attempt to out him,” stressing that Satoshi Nakamoto is a technology enthusiast that has once gone after hackers.
To face the fact, the Satoshi’s unveiling is not the best thing for Bitcoin (BTC) presently. A well-known crypto enthusiast, Fundstrat’s Tom, also backed the sentiment.
Wouldn’t this be a negative development? Unless SN has passed away already… https://t.co/wvrgK7KvIf

McAfee added that he has been tracking people who are the best in hiding their identity for a very long time, so he sees finding Satoshi Nakamoto as no big deal, but his legal issue has been the major barrier to fulfilling his promise.
Would it not cause a setback for Bitcoin (BTC) market price if John McAfee finally fulfills his promise by revealing Satoshi’s real identity?
