A person named Jorg Molt has been claiming to be the co-founder of Bitcoin and that as founder he owns 250,000 BTC (worth $2.2 billion). Apparently, he is using this lie to dupe conference organizers and investors.
He has also authored a book on Bitcoin, The Generation Bitcoin, published in July 2018. The book is available on Amazon, which has also received comments regarding his fraud.
In the video, the claimant Jorg Molt says he “loves Bitcoins” and has quite a bit of money for it.

– he owes money to at least 6 people
– he‘s not paying alimony for his two kids

Anotopolous Contacted by Jorg’s Associate
Andreas Antonopolous, a prominent Bitcoin educator warned the netizens of Jorg Molt, who is using a photograph with Antonopolous to validate his lie. Andreas tweeted,
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.
