Chairman of SchiffGold, permanent Bitcoin hater Peter Schiff, has taken to Twitter to congratulate the community with April Fool’s day.

Apparently, following the joke of Binance CZ about him being Satoshi Nakamoto, Schiff admitted that it was indeed he who created the largest global cryptocurrency Bitcoin in 2008-2009 (and the first crypto ever back then).

Schiff jokes about him being Satoshi

Schiff tweeted that he hodls “billions worth of Bitcoin” and keeps buying BTC. For this reason, he continued, he has been constantly slamming Bitcoin in hope to get off of “paper hands” and gradually buy the total BTC supply of 21 million coins so that he can have “the moon all to to himself”.

In tweet that followed, Schiff explained that he added that the piece about “the moon” because he wanted to make sure everyone understands his April 1 joke.

“I wanted to make sure no one took my April fools’ joke seriously. I didn’t want to be responsible for any fools buying #Bitcoin.”

The crypto community has been long trying to figure out who among the crypto influencers alive today could be Satoshi Nakamoto. Among the “candidates” Hal Finney (passed away in 2014), Adam Back (Blockstream CEO), and some even joked that it is Elon Musk.
