Roberto De Jesús Escobar Gaviria’s web site for dietbitcoin consists of a 281 webpage reserve, offered as a downloaded PDF, entitled “The Accurate Tale by Roberto Escobar: Pablo Escobar’s Dietbitcoin” and subtitled, “After generating $100 bln dollars, Roberto Escobar launches the dietbitcoin ‘DDX’ cryptocurrency.”
If one does not have time to read the entire version, which consists of chapters entitled “The Other Peruvian Airplane,” and “Noriega, The Traitor”, fascinated parties can download the white paper laying out the impetus for the generation of DDX in a quick introduction:
“I am the to start with man or woman in the globe, Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, to publicly appear out and claim that Bitcoin was designed by the American Federal government, and I am not going to be the previous man or woman to say this. The globe is going to wake up. The globe is going to see that this was designed by them. And when they see it, it is also late, and when the CIA founds out that the globe appreciates about this, the CIA is going to market all of their coins, and they will damage the benefit of Bitcoin…That’s why I am creating my own cryptocurrency referred to as dietbitcoin (DDX).”
Dietbitcoin is at present running an Original Coin Featuring (ICO) that is made up of a few rounds with 1 mln DDX coins as the cap for the crowdsale. The pre-ICO spherical 1 delivers a overall of 300,000 coins for $2 a coin, a sale price from the $50 initially mentioned, pre-ICO spherical 2 delivers 300,000 coins for $100 every, and the ICO will have 400,000 tokens for $1000 every.
Nonetheless, the overall variety of coins is prepared as 1.8 mln, with a provide cap of 21 mln.
In accordance to Roberto Escobar’s reserve, it was the elusive Satoshi Nakamoto that approached him about cryptocurrencies initially:
“I get a cellular phone simply call, this time it is from El Conejo [nickname]. El Conejo is telling me that he is talking to Satoshi Nakamoto. He is not just talking. He is with him right now in Lima, Peru. I mentioned, ‘El Conejo, I do not know who this gentleman is. Deliver him to my home.’ El Conejo responded “OK.”
I held reading in the newspapers about this cryptocurrency referred to as Bitcoin. I didn’t know what it was all about. I didn’t treatment. Until eventually El Conejo referred to as me all over again. This time, he informed me that we are doing our own cryptocurrency. I didn’t have an understanding of. He informed me that the founder of Bitcoin would like to do a cryptocurrency with the spouse and children of Pablo Emillio Escobar Gavirira. I mentioned, ‘OK. I approve the deal.’”
Nonetheless, Roberto Escobar then describes that Nakamoto approaching him was basically “a setup by the American Federal government to infiltrate Escobar Integrated,” and so his dietbitcoin is the superior coin as it will not let the “Americanos” to keep track of users’ purchases.
Escobar was also seemingly in contact with an additional properly-recognized determine in the crypto local community, John McAfee in the hopes of creating a cryptocurrency alongside one another, but eventually turned the deal down for becoming “too little:”
“I didn’t like the man little man. I under no circumstances listened to of him before. Nobody in Colombia appreciates his name. I do not know if the globe appreciates about him or not, but I do not know about him.
I mentioned to El Conejo, ‘How can you make a corporation with a man that no person appreciates about besides you?’ El Conejo mentioned ‘It’s not like that.’ I replied ‘Well that is the way that it appears to be like to me. John McAfee I under no circumstances listened to of him. I under no circumstances listened to of his name. It is a worthless name. You know the name that you have to have is my name. Not the name of this gentleman.’”
“Ethereum is a total rip-off. This is great technology, but it was designed by a little child. Who cares about this child? I do not treatment. He can appear listed here and speak to me in my experience. I will say ‘Sir, you are a gringo. You think I treatment about the gringo coin? I really do not treatment.’ All of these other coins and tokens do not even get me started on tokens.”
Previously this 12 months, an additional massive name, actor and “zen master” Steven Seagal, connected his name to the new cryptocurrency “Bitcoiin2gen,” which also posits by itself as a “superior or a lot more advanced version of [Satoshi Nakamoto’s] Unique Bitcoin.” Nonetheless, New Jersey has due to the fact despatched a stop and desist letter regarding Bitcoiin2gen’s ICO, alleging that “unregistered securities” were being available in violation of securities regulations.
