In a book, Pablo Escobar’s brother talks about his first encounters with the world of cryptocurrencies after his release:
“A few weeks go by, and I am back at the house. Meeting with people; all of the lovely people who have come to visit me. I get a phone call, this time it is from El Conejo. El Conejo is telling me that he is talking to Satoshi Nakamoto. He is not just talking. He is with him right now in Lima, Peru. I said, “El Conejo, I do not know who this man is. Bring him to my house.” El Conejo responded “OK.”
I kept reading in the newspapers about this cryptocurrency called Bitcoin. I didn’t know what it was all about. I didn’t care. Until El Conejo called me again. This time, he told me that we are doing our own cryptocurrency. I didn’t understand. He told me that the founder of Bitcoin wants to do a cryptocurrency with the family of Pablo Emillio Escobar Gaviria. I said, “OK. I approve the deal.“
He also tells in his book, how “The Rabbit” had some encounters with Satoshi Nakamoto, who wanted to meet him in New York. But Escobar thought Satoshi’s interest was somehow strange, so he asked for a copy of his passport. El Conejo sent him a picture with Satoshi’s passport.
However, after investigating, Escobar’s brother found out that Satoshi Nakamoto is actually an identity created by the U.S. government to control the world economy and that Satoshi’s real name is alias Miguel Caña:
“Miguel Caña show your face! I am writing this book for you to show your real face, and tell the world who you really are, Miguel Caña. Tell them about what you do for the American Government, and how you are ruining lives. How you are threatening people and making their lives worse by investing in your worthless Bitcoin that you Miguel Caña later will sell; sell them all, every single coin. I don’t know if Miguel Caña is the person that pushes the button for the American Government to sell $10 Billion Dollars’ worth of Bitcoin. But I know that Miguel Caña is the one that sent us the passport of Satoshi Nakamoto, who is claiming to be the founder of Bitcoin“
McAfee wasn’t popular enough to work with Escobar’s brother
Seeking strategic partners for the cryptocurrency, Escobar’s brother reached out to the founder of McAfee Antivirus, John McAfee. He talked to John through e-mails. He eventually said, “OK, you want to do a deal?“
“El Conejo liked the guy, but I didn’t like the guy; small guy. I never heard of him before.“
After long talks with El Conejo, Escobar’s brother concluded that it was his name they needed to use to launch the cryptocurrency.
A bitcoin fork that sounded to be for fat people was created – Diet Bitcoin
According to its whitepaper, the bitcoin fork is a faster, and lighter alternative to bitcoin.
The sale has already started having a value of $50, with a huge discount of 96% of its original price, being offered at $2.
One of the reasons for buying Escobar`s coin is, according to his book, that bitcoin is a CIA creation.
“Bitcoin was created by the Americanos, and we have the evidence for this. It was created by the Federal Government of America. Do you not think it is strange that there is one man out there who is worth $10 Billion Dollars, and nobody has heard of him? Nobody has seen him. Nobody has met him, except El Conejo.“
Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria was the first man that publicly stated that Bitcoin was created by the U.S Government. He also suggests that the government has a kill switch that can bring down the entire network of cryptocurrencies, but his coin will survive.
Whether it’s just a “coinspiracy“ or a way of marketing his coin, we will find out sooner or later.
