According to Peter Thiel, the first meeting of the founders of E-Gold could be. contain a clue as to the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto

PayPal co-founder and multi-billion dollar venture capitalist, Peter Thiel believes he has a clue how to find Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous creator of Bitcoin (BTC). which disappeared two years after the cryptocurrency’s Genesis block was dismantled in January 2009.

His theory is based on one of the first meetings of the founders of e-gold in February 2000, when around 200 people met on a beach in Anguilla to devise a strategy to promote a new monetary system that could challenge central banks. E-gold was a digital gold currency that retired in 2007 after its founders were indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice.

“I met her on the beach in Anguilla in February 2000”, Thiel said at a cryptocurrency conference in Miami on Wednesday, referring to the founders of e-gold. “My theory about Satoshi’s identity was that Satoshi was on this Anguilla beach.” He further stated:

“We started the revolution against the central banks on the beach in Anguilla. We wanted to make PayPal interoperable with e-gold and blow up all central banks.”

The failure of e-gold may have given Satoshi the foresight to remain anonymous in building his successor. “Bitcoin was the answer to e-gold, and Satoshi learned that you have to be anonymous and not have a company “, said Thiel.

Not everyone is convinced that Nakamoto is behind the previous e-money protocols. Dustin D. Trammell, one of the first cypherpunks to mine Bitcoin, said Cointelegraph Brazil in March that Nakamoto was impartial when introducing new technologies, which means that they approached the project from a new perspective.

Nakamoto’s 2008 whitepaper spawned a multi-billion dollar cryptocurrency industry where tens of thousands of digital assets vie for a piece of the pie. Bitcoin is in the middle of a historic week, hitting new all-time highs of over $ 67,000 on Wednesday.
