Grant Cardone, Founder of 10X, Offers Bitcoin’s Satoshi Nakamoto $1 Million to Speak at the 10X Conference


Grant Cardone – Founder of 10X – Has Offered To Pay The Creator of Bitcoin (Satoshi Nakamoto) 1 Million Dollars to Attend and Speak at The Upcoming 10X Conference

What could 1 million dollars get you in this day and age? Apart from a pretty good house, a Lamborgini or two, could it get you a highly reclusive and yet world-renowned figure? Probably not, but it would certainly be enough to get you plenty of publicity for the offering.

For those not in the know, Grant Cordone, the eccentric founder of the world’s largest and well known business conference – 10X – has since announced that he will pay the developer behind Bitcoin – Satoshi Nakamoto – 1 million dollars to not only show up but also to speak during his upcoming 10X Growth Conference 4, taking place in Las Vegas.

“I’m am happy to write a check to ”the real Satoshi Nakamoto” to speak at the 10X Growth Conference where 10X entrepreneurs, business owners, marketers, and blockchain developers will gather.” —Grant Cardone

The fact that Cardone has offered to pay Nakamoto through the medium of a check instead of a more ‘modern’ medium doesn’t bode well for his chances of attracting the legendary architect of decentralized money.

Regardless, the 10X Growth Conference is an annually hosted conference, with the next one taking place from February 21st to 23rd 2020, and based in Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Among those in attendance is a range of celebrity speakers within the industry, along with A-List entertainment.

One of the added advantages of the conference is that there are plenty of networking opportunities with major players in the business world, along with a range of parties and highly informative content.

While it is certainly not likely that Nakamoto will take up Cardone on this not-so-generous offer, it is far more likely that this is a publicity stunt orchestrated in order to generate hype about this upcoming conference. Which, considering the fact that there are reports of this offer, demonstrates that it’s working.

In the past, the 10X Growth Conferences have featured a range of celebrity speakers such as Steve Harvey, John Maxwell, Daymond John, Sarah Blakeley, and Bethany Frankel. These speakers have also been followed by a range of A-List performers and musicians like Snoop Dog and Lil Jon.

At this moment in time, there have yet to be any confirmed speakers for the event, neither has there been any line-ups announced for performers, but this is an event scheduled for February 2020, major names, speakers and performers are likely to be expected in the near future.

For the 10X Conference, an individual like the founder and creator of Bitcoin would definitely be an exceptionally big draw for the company, as well as a magnet for Bitcoin enthusiasts, and more than worth the 1 million dollar investment. Even if this is a way for Cardone to generate more publicity and get eyes fixed on 10X. There is an understandable draw that Bitcoin has for people – considering the fact that it has managed to surge up by a staggering amount over this month alone – increasing rapidly from $5,000 to $11,000.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s real identity has been the subject of continuous debate over the last few years and is continuously stoked by a range of influencers over this same time. Culminating in recent discussions by the likes of John McAfee, who is the creator of the famous anti-virus software – McAfee, who stated that he knows the true identity of Nakamoto. He further asserted that he is very much alive and living within the United States.

Monero’s Riccardo Spagni Gets Back at Craig Wright Over Comments on Money Transmitters

Monero’s Riccardo Spagni Gets Back at Craig Wright Over Comments on Money Transmitters

Chief Scientist at nChain, Self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto and a Bitcoin SV proponent, Craig S. Wright, recently released an article in which he questions the security and privacy traits of Monero XMR.

The crypto token which is the 13th largest in the market based on market capitalization is popular for its privacy features as it is constructed on the cryptographic layer system. These cryptographic qualities of the token offer an untraceable exchange of funds and separate characteristics by default.

The article details on how Monero and other mixed coins are engaged in the activity of money transfers and money handling, which according to Craig makes them Money Service Businesses [MSBs] and should therefore follow the corresponding rules. The rules include:

“Complying with the anti-money laundering (AML) program, maintaining records, and issuing against the reporting requirements as defined in their jurisdiction. Compliance would include filing Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) and Currency Transaction Reports (CTRs). Peer-to-peer exchange is covered under the anti-money laundering (AML) rules. Avoiding the requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) in the US is not an option.”

The article also went further to state that:

“every node, software, wallet and person engaged in the transfer of funds – any funds including Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, was acting as a money transmitter”.

Furthermore, money transmitters and any subsystems are required to adhere with the Bank Secrecy Act [BSA] law, a U.S law requiring financial institutions in the United States to assist government agencies in detecting and averting money laundering.

Riccardo Spagni’s Response

Lead maintainer of Monero and host of Magical Crypto Conference, Riccardo Spagni, also known as Fluffypony, is one of the best-known figures in the crypto community. Riccardo then tweeted a response with an analogy saying

“Parents: are you giving lunch money to your kids? According to Craig Wright you are a money transmitter and will go to prison! Welcome to law. Have a nice life.”

And implying that with Craig’s accusations even the most basic forms of money exchange is illegal and should be prosecutable by law. However, some proponents of BSV weren’t moved by the remark and tweeted in support of the article claiming that Craig S. Wright was simply pointing out the law.
