Could one of the architects of XRP be the fabled Satoshi Nakamoto?

In 2019 the late John McAfee was alleged to have claimed that Schwartz was in fact Nakamoto, but he has consistently denied those rumors.

David Schwartz reportedly filed a patent for a DLT type technology back in 1988….

That’s not all though, according to sources Schwartz also worked for The C.I.A., and there are rumored emails of Nakamoto praising Ripple as early as 2009.

I encourage you to check out the thread by Anders L which you can access by clicking on his tweet below.

Let’s take a look at the information connecting Schwartz to the Nakamoto identity:

And here’s where it starts to get REALLY interesting…

Amazing research done by Anders_L, which is all documented and all factual.

What do you make of this?

And remember when Dan Pena said “if you knew who was behind Bitcoin, you would RUN!”?

Well, that’s not entirely accurate…he didn’t “say it” so much as “shout it” like he does everything, but still the point remains.

Watch this short clip:

Hmmm….so most in crypto despise XRP, would knowing that David Schwartz (@JoelKatz) created it cause people to flip out?

I think so.

Here’s more, according to Daily Hodl:

In response to questions posted on Twitter regarding whether he’s responsible for building the Bitcoin network, Schwartz says he didn’t find out about Bitcoin until 2011 – two years after BTC came into existence. Schwartz, who is one of the original architects of the XRP ledger, believes it is more likely Bitcoin’s pseudonymous architect was actually a small group of people, rather than a single person.

“I think it’s more plausible that Satoshi was a small group of people given the wide set of skills displayed and the amount of work done. It could have been one person, but that seems somewhat unlikely to me.”


Here’s more from our late friend John McAfee on the topic.

Anyone else miss this guy?
