McAfee will NOT unveil the identity of Satoshi Nakomoto, at least not today

Controversial die-hard crypto enthusiast, John McAfee, took to Twitter to explain why he has decided to not release the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto at this time.

Just today Chepicap reported that McAfee spoke to Bloomberg, where he stated that if Nakamoto does not come forward, then he is going to be exposed and this within a week. McAfee elaborated on this, claiming to have spoken with whomever Nakamoto is recently:

'I’ve spoken with him, and he is not a happy camper about my attempt to out him...', McAfee said.

The now infamous debacle that is going on between Craig Wright and many other parties, in which Wright is going after anyone who claims that he is not the real Satoshi Nakamoto, has clearly upset McAfee, who took to Twitter to attempt to put an end to this debate.

However, perhaps somewhat unsurprisingly, today McAfee announced that, due to being charged with felonies by the IRS, and its extradition request to the United States, his attorney believes outing Satoshi Nakamoto to the world could be too dangerous.

'Releasing the identity of Satoshi at this time could influence the trial and risk my extradition', McAfee tweeted.

'I cannot risk that. I'll wait.'

What a pitty, we really, really, looked forward to finally knowing who is Satoshi ... Not!

The crypto community doesn't seem all too impressed with it either.
