A video recorded by Twitter user Kenneth Bosak at the WorldCryptoCon conference held in Los Angeles last week brought a moment of fame to the next self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator.

Former German DJ Jörg Molt calls himself “the co-founder of Bitcoin” and “one of the few real experts on blockchain and cryptocurrencies.” In addition, Molt claimed to own 250,000 BTC.

Note that before the name of Molt was already associated with several fraudulent schemes, including the so-called Satoshi School, where he teaches people about Bitcoin and the blockchain. The school website writes:

“The Satoshi School is the only school in the world that teaches exclusively about BitCoin and BitCoin blockchain technology in a location that suits you. It was founded in 2016 by BitCoin co-founder Jörg Molt — who has been working on global digital cash projects since 1995.“

The famous cryptocurrency enthusiast Andreas Antonopoulos wrote in his Twitter account:

Apparently, a German person called “Jorg Molt” has been showing a selfie taken with me and telling people that we are friends

This is a LIE. I don’t know him at all.

I have heard from others that he claims to be the founder of Bitcoin and has thousands of BTC. A LIE.”.

Recall that recently another self-proclaimed Satoshi Craig Wright said he could not pay half a million BTC to the family of his former partner Dave Kleiman.
