Bitcoin Cash Developer Amaury Sechet Claims He’s Satoshi Nakamoto

The Bitcoin community will be rolling its eyes right about now. Bitcoin Cash developer Amaury Sechet, the self-described “benevolent dictator” of the Bitcoin ABC (primary) implementation of BCH, has claimed he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Reported to CCN.

In the event the tweet is later deleted, here’s a screenshot:

Sechet and Bitcoin ABC were cited by former Bitcoin Cash developer (now on Bitcoin SV) _unwriter as a primary problem for the BCH ecosystem. _unwriter believes that virtually anything that Bitcoin ABC wants, ABC gets, which he sees as toxic for decentralization. The power of Bitcoin ABC was a motivating factor in the BSV fork’s foundation. _unwriter recently launched a number of projects on Bitcoin SV.

In a follow-up tweet, Sechet provides some clues:

A Stack Exchange post by Bitcoin Core developer Gregory Maxwell explains that faking Satoshi’s identity is easier than one might expect.

So, for example, a couple years ago Craig Wright claimed to ‘prove he was Satoshi’ by simply copying some pre-existing signatures out of the blockchain and posting somewhat obfuscated instructions on verifying them. It was figured out pretty quickly, but still managed to fool a lot of people– they were too caught up in the mumbojumbo to think of the obvious.

Most people have so far taken the post in a light-hearted manner, like this:

Indeed, there’s a greater-than-zero possibility that Sechet is joking — perhaps even taking a not-so-subtle jab at Craig Wright. Let’s hope so anyway, goodness knows one Faketoshi is enough.
