There are various rumors that the anonymous creator and developer of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, will reveal himself tonight. This event would allegedly happen tonight at 20:00 GMT. However, we are still skeptical about the authenticity of this claim and not sure if this will happen.
Satoshi Nakamoto is not the real name of the creator. It is a pseudonym for the developers or developers. Nobody knows who the inventor of the Bitcoin network is. According to an announcement by a blockchain company, this anonymity will change tonight.

Recall that this has happened before. Nobody or has ever claimed to know who Satoshi is or claims to be Satoshi himself. Nobody has been able to prove that He is The Bitcoin inventor.
Satoshi Nakamoto changed the world when he brought an open-source, decentralized, reliable, censorship-proof currency based on math and cryptography.
If Satoshi wanted to reveal himself, he would sign a message with the genesis key. If someone can’t do that, then it’s probably a fraud.

A lot of active users of the Bitcoin network has made their stand known on several social networks. Below is a tweet from the verified account of Charlie Lee [LTC⚡] @SatoshiLite
“Satoshi Nakamoto brought to the world an open-source, decentralized, trustless, censorship-resistant currency based on math and cryptography.
If Satoshi wanted to reveal himself, he would sign a message with the genesis key. Anything short of that is most likely fraudulent.”
Charlie Lee is a well know account that is linked t Litecoin.
It is also worthy of note that the real Satoshi would have access to the very first private key ever created in the Bitcoin network. He or she could, therefore, sign a message with that key to prove to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto.
The reason that Satoshi remains anonymous is probably due to his efforts to develop a fully decentralized network. By staying anonymous, for example, nobody can put pressure on the original creator to make certain changes to the protocol. Bitcoin is thus a completely independent system.
In short, returning to the recent rumors that Satoshi will make himself known, this might probably be a PR stunt by a company, something that has happened more often in the past.
This rumored reveal is expected to take place in three stages. The first stage is supposed to take place on the 18th of August, and it would see the creator of the Bitcoin network announce His primary details such as his name and why he is holding up to about a million Bitcoin.
The next day which is the 19th of August would witness the second stage while the grand finale will take place on the 20th of August where he is expected to unveil a new project.
The countdown is on, and we are waiting patiently to know if this is another lie or if it is the truth.
