Over the past 13 years, a large number of individuals have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin, but no one has been able to prove it to the larger crypto community. In late August 2019, a marketing and public relations (PR) agency issued a press release featuring a man from Pakistan who claimed to have invented Bitcoin. While Pakistani Bilal Khalid has not provided any proof, the PR agency founder recently published a book called “Finding Satoshi: The Real Story Behind Mysterious Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto”.
PR Agency Founder Ivy Mclemore Publishes Book Titled “Finding Satoshi”
Almost three years ago, in August 2019, the cryptocurrency community was introduced to a man named Bilal Khalid and a PR agency called Ivy McLemore & Associates. Pakistani Bilal Khalid is also called James Caan or James Bilal Caan. Back then, in 2019, Khalid published a three-part blog post on the web portal satoshinrh.com titled “My Reveal”. In part one, Khalid claims to share “unknown facts about the creation of Bitcoin” and some of the “developments” that led to his departure. Khalid’s revelation was reinforced by public relations firm Ivy McLemore & Associates as the company tweeted about the event and reached out to news crews with the information.
In Part 2, Khalid, who claims to have invented Bitcoin, shares information about Chaldean numerology that influenced his decisions while allegedly creating the software. The second part also reveals details about the alleged BTC that Satoshi Nakamoto mined, and Khalid claims to “reveal all the facts related to my 980,000 bitcoins”. In part three, Khalid reveals his true identity and explains that all the coins he mined were on a single computer. Apparently, Khalid’s computer was a Fujitsu laptop with “military-grade encryption.”
An account of the story published in November 2019 says that one evening, the self-proclaimed inventor of Bitcoin says he turned on the Fujitsu laptop which ostensibly contained 980K BTC, and all it would show was a blank screen. . He didn’t think it was a hard drive issue, so he decided to send the laptop to a repair center to be fixed, and he also left specific instructions saying : “Do not touch the hard disk”. The repair company explained to Khalid that the hard drive was the problem and that the hardware was “totally dead”.
Following press releases and tweets posted by Ivy McLemore, the aforementioned account of the story published in November 2019 was that of the PR agency last tweet until June 1, 2022. The subject of the tweet posted by Ivy McLemore this year is about sports and has nothing to do with Khalid’s story. However, this month, Ivy McLemore, the founder of the marketing and PR agency, released a book called “Finding Satoshi: The Real Story Behind Mysterious Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto”. The Amazon description of the book does not mention Khalid by name but states:
The book offers readers the unique opportunity to join a journalist on a lifelong search for the creator of the world’s most successful investment. It screens 40 candidates and leads to a little-known, under-the-radar suspect with startling and previously unknown secrets that only the creator of Bitcoin could have known.
The book description claims that “Finding Satoshi” gives readers 42 specific points to ponder.
According to Amazon’s book description, readers will learn “why he left encryptions in names, dates, and other Bitcoin milestones,” and “his ethnicity and country of residence.” The book’s description further purports to detail “why his $68 billion worth of bitcoins haven’t moved” and “why he waited eight years to tell his wife he’s Satoshi.” Ivy McLemore’s story says that “Nakamoto is invaluable to society because of the expert knowledge he could share with future generations.” The description of the book “Finding Satoshi” adds:
Regardless of what you think of Satoshi’s real identity, Finding Satoshi gives readers 42 specific points to ponder.
Over the years, many claimants have claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto, but lately such claims have dwindled. Prior to 2020, individuals like Hawaiian Nakamoto, Phil Wilson “Scronty”, Debo Jurgen Etienne Guido, and Jörg Molt all claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. No one heard of the Hawaiian Nakamoto, Sronty and Debo kept tweeting about Bitcoin’s origins, and Jörg Molt was recently arrested for alleged crypto retirement fraud. Moreover, until recently, most members of the crypto community forgot about Khalid’s story, after he was unable to provide legitimate evidence to support his claims.
