Nouriel Roubini, more popularly known as Dr. Doom by crypto enthusiasts for his consistently bearish stance on cryptocurrencies, recently commented on the surprise profile update by Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin’s creator. On the update, which read ‘nour’, Roubini commented that “it is time to see the light and give up on the useless Bitcoin and other Shitcoins”.

The comment by Roubini comes after an update on Satoshi Nakamoto’s previously associated account. The same account was reportedly hacked in 2014. Satoshi was last known to have used his account in 2010, and the current post, which had just one word, “Nour”, has left people searching for more answers. Along with this one word, the account has also added a random person.

However, enthusiasts and twitteratis have gone all out predicting the meaning behind this post by the creator of Bitcoin. While people are suggesting Urdu and Hebrew meaning of the word, David Gerard, an author, connected the word ‘Nour’ to Nouriel Roubini and said:

“Satoshi Nakamoto is warning us that Bitcoin was a mistake and @Nouriel is correct in all his concerns”.

To this comment, Jack Palmer, the creator of Dogecoin, replied saying:

“That profile has been hijacked for many years by way of the email hack.”

Roubini took this opportunity to once again trash the crypto world. He took to Twitter to express his joy over the tweet by Gerard. He posted:

Roubini has previously too taken every opportunity to bash the crypto world and his followers, who share a love-hate relationship with him. He further said on his post:

“If economists of your kind were really competent, then our world would not be in debt and inequalities would be smaller. keep your lessons.”
