Hawaiian Man Claims “I Am the Real Satoshi”
A man residing in Hawaii has proclaimed himself as Satoshi Nakatomo, the brainchild behind bitcoin, the first digital currency worldwide.
Twitter user @btcfork found a website called Satoshinakamoto.ws which outlines some information about the supposed bitcoin creator and the virtual currency, as well as trademark copyright notice.
“I Ronald Keala Kua Maria also known as Satoshi Nakamoto inventor of bitcoin and blockchain technology hereby affirm that all my copyrights including an equity-based electronic reserve currency peer to peer electronic cash system,” the notice stated.
“I am the real one and only Satoshi Nakamoto — I own all the private keys, blockchains, altcoins and bitcoins under copyright law. In the event of my death, incapacitation, coma, kidnapping, detainment and or incarceration all of my copyrighted works and all related works shall no longer be used by anyone anywhere for any reason at any time subject to change without any notice at any time by Ronald Keala Kua Maria only. I hereby serve legal notice to all users of my copyrighted works to cease and desist all use of my copyrighted works breach subject to copyright infringement,” Kua Maria emphasized.
Furthermore, the site contains a copy of the original white paper showing a document entitled “The Coin of All Coins” deciphered from the bitcoin blockchain.
The industry becomes more interested with Kua Maria’s statements and claimed ownership of several bitcoin cash-related website domains such as thesatoshinakamoto.com, bitcoincopyrights.com, bitcoincashcopyright.com, and bchcopyright.com, among others.
When the aforementioned sites are visited, users are redirected to Kua Maria’s URL, rkm.world, which flashes an array of pictures and interesting services which are said to be given by the RKM business akin to a “free basic income plan.” Upon checking these services, site visitors are redirected again to Satoshinakamoto.ws.
“There are no other legal assignees or licensees of my copyrights — Any assignments or transfers are not authorized and may be fraudulent,” Kua Maria explained in his cryptic writings on the website.
“I do not authorize any assignees or licensees — I did not publish any part of my TXu002037698 work prior to 08/17/2016 — On or about 09/20/2005 my home (address below) was raided by Federal and State authorities joint task force and my computers, laptops, files, inventions, copyrights, etc. were seized,” Kua Maria said.
Despite his previous pronouncements, Kua Maria said individuals and entities can get in touch with him to secure a free license and copy of these notices. He added the basic income plan users may be required to pay 2 percent royalties on transactions amounting to more than $800 to pay a basic monthly income of $800 to all users subject to existing copyright law and their plan offering.
In a separate development, there were trademark filings related to the term “Bitcoin Cash” pertaining to products and services associated with computer software licensing and online real-time currency trading, based on public documents available on the website of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
But the May 18 filing applies to computer software licensing which was registered by Kua Maria from Hawaii. The application states Kua Maria is declaring himself as the inventor of cryptocurrency.
Prior to the filing, Kua Maria and his mother were featured in several news items. In 2011, the mother-son tandem was accused of second-degree theft which involved phony cargo containers and the two supposedly grifted millions of dollars by deceiving Hawaiian people. Based on local accounts, the cargo container scam began in the 1970s, in which Maria started asking acquaintances to venture into bogus cargo containers.
