The mystery surrounding the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto has deepened even further. According to Cointelegraph, Amazon has just announced the publication of two books with the author named as Satoshi Nakamoto.
According to Amazon, both of the books — Wave and Ripple Design Book and The Official Bitcoin Coloring Book — are scheduled for release on June 28. The profile of the author makes it clear that he indeed claims to be the same Satoshi Nakamoto who created bitcoin.
The author says in his profile that 100% of his royalties from the sale of the books will be donated “to support STEM and environmental education programs serving underprivileged youth.”
Cointelegraph says, “The store descriptions of the books themselves seemingly contain inside jokes about the cryptocurrency space and the myth of Satoshi Nakamoto.”
For example, Wave and Ripple Design Book, for instance, appears to hint at both the Japanese roots of the bitcoin creator’s pseudonym, as well as to Ripple’s XRP:
“A wonderful selection of wave and ripple designs curated by Satoshi Nakamoto. […] Yuzan’s designs were often used by Japanese craftsmen in the early 1900s to adorn their wares with wave and ripple patterns.”
The description of the coloring book also contains a number of less subtle jokes, including the fact it is printed on “a brilliant white paper.” And as Cointelegraph says, “The product page also displays editorial reviews by Etheorum creator Vitallike Buttering, J.P. Morgain CEO Diamond James, and billionaire investor and Chairman of the Bored Buffet Warden, all misspellings of individuals and organizations famous within the space.”
In the last few months Craig Wright has claimed to be Satoshi, as has a man in China, and John McAfee claims to know the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. It is more than likely we may never know the truth.
