New Satoshi Nakamoto

His full name is James Bilal Khalid Kaan. He was born in Pakistan but lives in the UK. He is a graduate of the Al-Khair University of Pakistan and has also studied remotely at Yale, Duke, and the University of California, Irvine. This is what the next contender for the place of Satoshi Nakamoto announced in the second chapter of his story.

The new candidate claims that his fortune of 980 thousand BTC was lost due to a stupid mistake: all private keys were stored on the hard drive of the Acer Aspire 5738 laptop and only there, and one fine day, this hardware device completely failed.

Khalid Kaan, who was born on September 29, 1978, also emphasized that he left the project because people started using bitcoin for criminal purposes, and the last straw for him was the decision of the developer Gavin Andresen to talk with the CIA.

At the same time, he said that in October 2010 his legs were paralyzed (apparently temporarily), and on May 2015 he allegedly received a serious back injury and was bedridden for the next 10 months.

In the next chapter, Kaan intends to present his vision of the development of Bitcoin, which he calls the revolution.

“I no longer live in fear. My confidence and passion are back. It is noteworthy that he dedicated his comeback to Apple founder Steve Jobs.

Recall that in the last chapter of his story, the new Satoshi spoke about disappointment in banks, reverence for Chaldean numerology, and how the idea of creating bitcoin came about.
