Satoshi Nakamoto’s profile on P2P Foundation came back to life on November 29, 2018, at 12:30 UTC all of a sudden after years of inactivity and posted just one word, “nour” and nothing else.

The word “nour” can be interpreted in different ways, one is the Arabic translation into “noor” which means “the light” and the other, as represented by Urban Dictionary, “The most loving, affectionate and caring person you’ll ever meet. Extremely smart, funny and sensitive. ”

Be that as it may, everybody in the community is questioning as to “why now?” and speculating the reason behind it. Moreover, Satoshi’s emails that were associated with his P2P profile were compromised as the domain behind it went offline.

There is highly unlikely chance that it could be the actual Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, coming back to his compromised account. Moreover, the email linked in the P2P website was inactive.

Furthermore, before posting the controversial word, Satoshi Nakamoto connected with Wagner Tamanaha.

Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto took to his Twitter further insinuating his claim to being the creator of Bitcoin by posting pictures of sunlight with Arabic captions.

A Redditor MindWallet commented:



“Probably hacked, yes. Why on earth would he come out and say something in Arabic? The account has already been hacked on several occasions as far as I know.”

Although Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity remains hidden even after a decade, there was a supposed Satoshi Nakamoto on Twitter [account suspended for now] a few weeks back that claimed that he would reveal his actual identity as there was a problem with SegWit.

The Tweet said:

“I do not want to be public, but, there is an issue with SegWit. If it is not fixed, there will be nothing and I would have failed. There is only one way that Bitcoin survives and it is important to me that it works. Important enocugh, that I may be known openly.”

Andrew Yang, the United States 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate, released a new policy for the regulation of the cryptocurrency space on April 20. The new policy statement titled ‘Crypto/ Digital Asset Regulation And Consumer Protection’, emphasized on the need for regulating the digital asset place, and also listed the actions Yang would do for the cryptocurrency market as the President.

Yang said on Twitter,

“New Policy #22 – Digital Asset/Cryptocurrency Regulation. Investment in cryptocurrencies and digital assets has far outpaced our regulatory frameworks. Investors need to know what their treatment will be in order to properly innovate in the U.S.”

On the official site, Yang stated that the cryptocurrencies “have quickly grown to represent a large amount of value and economic activity”. He further spoke about the lack of regulation of the cryptocurrency space, adding that the “patchwork of varying regulations” introduced by states has made it “difficult for the US cryptocurrency market” to compete with any other market, importantly China and Europe.



The Presidential Candidate further listed three key problems that needed to be solved, growth of cryptocurrency market being faster than that of the government’s response, differing regulations in different states, and uncertainty of the framework that would be unveiled.

Fang, a Twitter user, said,

“A candidate that is actually in touch with technology, blockchain and crypto. I missed the Bitcoin train but got in early on Ethereum mining: A significant % of my net worth is in crypto. So far I’ve done nothing but HODL. Our government has no idea what to do with digital asset”
