John McAfee, the creator of McAfee antivirus and computer and cybersecurity genius, promised his fans that he would reveal the true identity of the person behind Bitcoin. McAfee’s earlier tweets hinted that there were a few people in the crypto-space who knew the actual identity of Satoshi Nakamoto.

John McAfee’s recent tweets created a sense of excitement and enthusiasm on social media, as he posted:

McAfee claimed that there was a lot of energy and time being spent on the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, which led him to divulge tiny bits of information every day until the identity of the creator of Bitcoin becomes public. This recent tweet by McAfee is among a string of responses to the recent controversy surrounding Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre, who are legally serving “harassment and libel” lawsuits to people who had claimed that he [Craig Wright] was a fraud and wasn’t Satoshi Nakamoto.

McAfee updated his previous tweet with another, which read:

People in the community started narrowing down the names by guessing the most popular people who could have created Bitcoin; some of those guesses include, Hal Finney, Elon Musk, John McAfee, etc.  Some people even suggested that Satoshi Nakamoto should sign a wallet saying “I am not Craig Wright”.

Bitcoin’s [BTC] rapid movement on the cryptocurrency charts revitalized an industry which was touted to be dead and buried in early 2019. The events over the past few weeks have not only increased the value of Bitcoin, but have also assisted in raising the collective market cap and the prices of other cryptocurrencies.

Giving more insight into this market movement was CNBC’s Brian Kelly, who touched upon the price fluctuations, as well as where the world’s largest cryptocurrency can go from here. The Bitcoin baller claimed that the 100 percent bounce back from Bitcoin’s lows was a great incentive for new investors. It also provided a reprieve for existing players in the market. Kelly claimed,

“Investors are wondering what the next market driver could be and in my opinion there are a couple of things. First of all we are starting to see the institutional players get into the field, evidenced by the entry of Fidelity and other such companies. Even the retail perspective is huge, with TD Ameritrade investing in Eris X with sources claiming that the organization will open BTC trade for customers in the  next three to six months.”

Kelly also spoke about how the market was entering a phase of a supply cut, where the supply of Bitcoin gets cut in the overall spectrum of the market. According to him, there is generally a price rally a year into the rise and a year out of it, and the combination of the supply cut and the rise in demand will be beneficial to Bitcoin’s price.

The CNBC official was also careful to inform holders and investors that while the price is holding at this point, people need to be careful since the market might be in the mood for a reversal. He warned,

“Do not buy it at the top but rather buy it now.”

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $7943.23, with a total market cap of $140.712 billion. The 24-hour market volume was holding at $24.816 billion and the BTC market was moving up by 0.45%.
