New evidence shows that Satoshi Nakamoto is no different from Paul Solotshi: a famous gun and drug smuggler, a developer of E4M and TrueCrypt encryption software.
Paul Solotshi Calder Le Roux, a 46-year-old criminal, is currently spending time behind bars. Paul Solotshi is the producer of E4M and TrueCrypt software (the cryptography encryption software Satoshi Nakamoto likely used to lock up his 1 million BTC). There are strong similarities in the writings and languages of Solotshi and Nakamoto. So some people believe that Bitcoin’s inventor is Paul Solotshi Calder Le Roux. The mystery has always been about exactly who Satoshi Nakamoto is, and now there’s a lot of evidence suggesting who he might be.
Who is the new Satoshi Nakamoto Nominee Paul Solotshi?
Paul Solotshi, former cartel boss, drug smuggler, arms dealer and a genius programmer. Atavist presented Le Roux’s life story in a book called The Mastermind. An excerpt summarizing the publications states:
“He was a brilliant programmer and a vicious cartel boss, who became a prized U.S. government asset.”
In addition to being the leader of a cartel, he was also a genius programmer who wrote the E4M program in 1999. This software is a free tool to encrypt Windows hard disk drives. It is also said to be the creator of the Trojan encryption package based on E4M code for hard drives.
Strong Link Between Satoshi Nakamoto and Paul Le Roux
1 – Paul Le Roux’s Nickname: ot Solotshi ”Calder Le Roux
In one of the many passports Le Roux owned, he goes by the name “Solotshi”, which sounds extremely similar to Satoshi.
2 – Le Roux is a brilliant programmer and familiar with C++, and so is Satoshi.
Le Roux, like Satoshi Nakamoto, was an excellent programmer with an obsession with cryptography and privacy.
Moreover, Le Roux published a kind of manifesto that expresses ideals strikingly similar to those of Satoshi Nakamoto. As explained in Wikipedia:
“In the ‘Politics’ section of the E4M website, Le Roux published a kind of manifesto stating that governments are increasingly relying on electronic data gathering. Citing projects such as Echelon, linked to the five nation states which would become known as the ‘Five Eyes’ more than a decade later, he stated that encryption is the only way to preserve civil liberties.”
At the end of Le Roux’s manifesto, he states:
“Strong Encryption is the mechanism with which to combat these intrusions, preserve your rights, and guarantee your freedoms into the information age and beyond.”
3 – Le Roux is suspected of developing TrueCrypt: Satoshi Nakamoto’s encryption software that protects 1 million bitcoins
Satoshi Nakamoto’s 1 million bitcoins are allegedly locked away in secure TrueCrypt volumes, encryption software that’s based on E4M’s code. Le Roux is highly suspected to have been a part of a team of anonymous developers called the “TrueCrypt Team.” This suspicion is compelling because some of Le Roux’s former colleagues believed he had worked on it, but they couldn’t find any corroborating evidence, so it still remains a mystery.
4 – The disappearance of Le Roux coincides with the disappearance of Satoshi
In 2011, Le Roux moved from software development to cartel boss.
As stated from Le Roux’s Wikipedia page:
“Around 2011 Le Roux began to disappear for long periods of time, with none of his employees knowing his whereabouts. As US authorities were closing in on him, Le Roux took up temporary residence in Rio de Janeiro and planned his move there.”
More Parallels Suggesting Le Roux is Satoshi:
- Both were wary of authority – Le Roux expressed this in his E4M manifesto, and Satoshi expressed this in his Bitcoin whitepaper.
- Both had an interest in online gambling – Le Roux is known to have participated in online gambling activities, and Bitcoin’s initial code had a poker client included.
- Both understood that a new digital payments system was needed to improve upon the difficulties of traditional payment systems. Le Roux dealt with clunky online payments in his online prescription drug market, and Satoshi expressed understanding of payments in the Bitcoin whitepaper.
- Both used similar spelling and language – “analyse, colour, defence, bloody, hard.”
- Le Roux was a multi-millionaire if not billionaire, and as such wouldn’t have needed to cash out his BTC once the price began rising.
Despite all the superficial evidence that Paul Le Roux could be Satoshi Nakamoto, there is still reasons to believe that this is not the case.
