The website, Gotsatoshi.com, was created back in May of 2017 according to WHOIS records, and merely features a ticking clock with a countdown that’ll end on May 14. The countdown seems to coincide with the Consensus conference, one of the largest blockchain conferences in the world.
Some are speculating that it is a marketing stunt organized by CoinDesk, the firm behind the conference. Some, on the other hand, it may be a move made to distract cryptocurrency users from the event itself.
The countdown also ends close to an upcoming Bitcoin Cash hard fork on May 15th. This will be the first hard fork the BCH blockchain will see after the last contentious one in November 15th of last year, which created Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV).
Some speculate something important is going to happen at the time of the hard fork, as a mysterious entity started mining significant volumes of Bitcoin Cash last month, under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.
The website surfaced at a time in which Craig Wright, a prominent Australian computer scientist who claims to be the person behind the Nakamoto pseudonym, allegedly sued the CEO of Bitcoin.com Roger Ver for calling him a “liar and a fraud.”
