According to a Bloomberg report, notorious crypto enthusiast and antivirus software maker, John McAfee, claims to have spoken with Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Further, he says he will reveal this person’s identity.

John McAfee Claims to Know Satoshi Nakamoto

When this reveal will be, however, remains unclear, despite McAfee initially telling Bloomberg he would expose Nakamoto “within a week.” McAfee said yesterday that the controversy his announcement would bring could damage his efforts to fight extradition to the US. Saying in a Twitter post:

“Releasing the identity of Satoshi at this time could influence the trial and risk my extradition […] I cannot risk that. I’ll wait.”

But in speaking to Bloomberg, McAfee said the following:

“I’ve spoken with him, and he is not a happy camper about my attempt to out him.”

However, it remains skeptical whether his claim is true—so many others have attempted to track down the Bitcoin pioneer and failed.

Satoshi Nakamoto

Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonym given to the person or people who created Bitcoin and spawned an entire currency. There have been multiple theories as to who the creator of the digital coin is, with each one causing hot debate. No one who has come forward with a suggestion has ever been able to prove it and theories are often quickly discredited. The mystery has gone so far as to suggest Tesla CEO Elon Musk is Satoshi Nakamoto—something he himself quickly denied.

Other claimants include Bitcoin SV founder Craig Wright and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.

All we know is if McAfee’s claim is true, then Nakamoto is a man living in the US.

In speaking to Bloomberg, McAfee reminded people that he has spent a lifetime tracking down hackers, meaning he is well capable of tracking down Nakamoto.

“People forget that I am a technologist […] I am one of the best,” he furthered.

The cryptocurrency world is noticing TRON. The blockchain network is developing a host of new legitimate platforms on its protocol. Now, notorious crypto enthusiast, John McAfee, loves one of the latest: TRON’s VibraVid platform.

TRON’s VibraVid and Further Protocol Developments

One of TRON’s most anticipated projects is BitTorrent Speed (expected in Q2 according to the website). Its purpose, as detailed on the website, is to reward “BitTorrent users with BitTorrent (BTT) in exchange for seeding and bandwidth, enabling faster downloads.”

The bandwidth sharing application is expected to lure millions of new people to the blockchain industry.

BTT, the token behind the application, is listing on dozens of exchanges at the same time that TRON’s dApp projects continue to grow.

Enhancing the entire TRON network, then, is an upcoming hardfork, which is expected to enhance the security and overall performance of TRON.

John McAfee and TRON VibraVid

As stated, John McAfee has taken notice of TRON’s developments, but one venture has caught his eye in particular.

The crypto bull expressed his adoration for the TRON VibraVid platform, saying “I do love this” in a Twitter response to the platform’s team.


VibraVid is an upcoming decentralized content sharing platform, “a decentralized answer to the industry giants like YouTube.” Powered by BeatzCoin (BTZC), the platform gives content creators a way to upload, market, and sell their content to fans or users. BTZC tokens are exchanged between artists and consumers directly, for the use of digital content. The idea is that the entire platform will act as a hub for artists such as musicians, who can control and monetize their works.

Clearly, John McAfee gets behind artists controlling their own assets on these types of sharing platforms.

TRON is the 9th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. At the time of writing, TRX is trading at $0.023 USD per coin according to CoinMarketCap.

Are you a fan of TRON? Do you think TRON’s VibraVid platform will be successful?
