Is the mysterious creator of Bitcoin finally about to be unmasked?


RT Channel shows the 1 million BTC question (or multi-billion) that a Miami court case might be about to answer.

Bitcoin's Trial of the Century in Miami Could Reveal the mysterious Founder and Shock the Crypto Market.

Bitcoin was launched in 2009 (a single bitcoin was priced at less than a tenth of a penny). 1 bitcoin is now worth more than $50,000.

Various people claim to have created Bitcoin. The trial is playing out in Miami. The so-called "bitcoin’s trial of the century" will result in showing whether the man who claims to have founded bitcoin had a partner.

It seems that a Miami federal judge could order 1.1 million bitcoins to be split in half - a shocking move for the crypto market.

"It’s many hundreds, thousands of wallets containing 1.1 million bitcoin that have never moved that were mined by Satoshi Nakamoto," said Kurt Wuckert Jr., a so-called Bitcoin historian of CoinGeek.

In the crypto world, Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonym used by the person, or people, who created bitcoin back in the late 2000s. Satoshi is estimated to hold up to 20% of all bitcoins and is thought to have written and published bitcoin’s "original plan" and protocol for cryptocurrency. However, the true identity of Satoshi is not known.

The so-called Search for Satoshi tries to find the inventor.

It seems that people cannot find Satoshi Nakamoto. He never showed his true identity. It is also possible that "Satoshi" has been dead for some time.

BC floods: Environment Canada issues red-level alert as province braces for more storms

Warning Preparedness Meteorologist Armel Castellan at Environment and Climate Change Canada said on Friday that the department issued a red-level weather alert for British Columbia as more storms are expected to hit the province during the weekend and upcoming week.

Castellan said the alert is particularly due to the vulnerabilities on the ground, especially in areas still recovering from previous storms.

The first red-level alert in years is being issued as two back-to-back storms are expected to hit the province. The first storm will bring heavy rainfall on Saturday and Sunday, and the second will strike next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Between 60 and 80 millimetres could fall in Gibson and the areas from Vancouver to the Fraser Valley. Up to 100 mm could fall closer to the mountains in the Lower Mainland, while Squamish could see up to 120 mm.
