On February 22, 2021, an author published a post on substack.com about an anonymous Twitter account that may have belonged to the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto. The researcher discovered a Twitter account dubbed â€˜Goldlover,â€™ and found some interesting coincidences with the accountâ€™s tweets and Bitcoinâ€™s creator.
The Curious Goldlover Tweets
An author called Varun published an interesting analysis of a specific Twitter account that may or may not belong to Bitcoinâ€™s creator. Varun said in his research analysis that he stumbled upon the Twitter account called â€˜Goldlover,â€™ and noticed that the account was quite â€œchattyâ€ for a period of time.
The researcher also said that Satoshi Nakamoto was the same way up until the inventor left the community for good. The Goldlover account (@fafcffacfff) was created in May 2008 and Varun says that a script was written. The Goldlover tweets mentioned gold quite often, and Varunâ€™s findings suggest that the â€˜goldâ€™ terminology may be in reference to â€œBit Gold.â€
â€œOn September 17th, 2008, this account made a reference to Digital Gold Currency,â€ Varunâ€™s post highlights. â€œIn between an incredible amount of nonsensical tweets about gold, sometimes there would be tweets which referenced decentralization, financial crisis, people losing their homes, fiat currency, criticism of the Federal Reserve,â€ Varun says. â€œThese are all hallmarks of talking points used by Satoshi in his emails and forum posts which are well known, post-Bitcoin announcement.â€
For instance, on December 19, 2008, Goldlover said:
What is also quite interesting is that no other Twitter accounts back in January 2009, except for Hal Finney, tweeted about Bitcoin. â€œBased on all of this, this is good enough for me to feel quite confident that this indeed was Satoshiâ€™s original anonymous Twitter account,â€ Varun notes.
On January 11, 2009, Hal Finney tweeted about the crypto asset and not too long after that Goldlover wrote: â€œFrom: Satoshi Nakamoto â€“ 2009-01-11 22:32 Bitcoin v0.1.2 is now available for d.â€
The very same day on January 29, 2009, Goldlover also said:
Exploring the Limitless Depths of Satoshiâ€™s Mind
Ever since Varun published his post about the alleged Satoshi Nakamoto Twitter account, people have been interacting with Goldloverâ€™s 12-year-old tweets.
â€œThanks for changing the world Satoshi,â€ an individual wrote on Monday.
â€œFeeling sufficiently anonymous with this cryptic account run since May 2008, this might have been a slip to now start linking up and showing up as the 2nd tweet ever to mention Bitcoin,â€ Varunâ€™s substack.com blog post states. â€œIf Hal was Satoshi, then why continue tweeting from this unknown account, which barely had any followers?â€ Varun asks. The researcher said that he could have slept in every Saturday morning, but this Twitter account had him on the hunt for Nakamoto.
The report concludes:
At the end of Varunâ€™s theory, he left a mysterious tweet from Goldlover which talks about a treasure box with oranges in the sky.
â€œIf you know where there are oranges in the sky in Winter Garden, you are on the right track for locating a treasure box,â€ Goldlover tweeted.
Just recently, a group of armchair sleuths have been on the hunt for Satoshiâ€™s stash of bitcoins, because they believe Nakamoto left the coins to be the greatest treasure hunt ever. Despite the coincidences and the extremely old and cryptic tweets from Goldlover, we donâ€™t know for sure if the Twitter account actually belonged to Satoshi, but today many people are speculating.
