Mysterious Nakamoto.com Website
In 2018, the website Nakamoto.com was transferred to a new owner. While not much is known about the future plans for the website sharing the same name as the pseudonym of the Bitcoin creator, the website's new owner has been revealed.
The new owner of the website is former Coinbase CTO Balaji S. Srinivasan. In May of this year, Srinivasan announced his departure of Coinbase amid rising tensions. Before Coinbase, he founded an early Bitcoin company that went on to rebrand as Earn.com.
The Nakamoto.com website currently just displays an email submission form and the words:
Nakamoto is Bitcoin Country
HODL or GTFO
Here is a screenshot of the current page:
The website itself is actually twice as old as Bitcoin belonging to a technologist with the last name Nakamoto.
A clue to the mysterious nature of the site lies inside of a tweet earlier in August from Srinivasan himself. It's pretty clear the thoughts of the tweet line up with the current layout for Nakamoto.com.
Another approach (recommended if feasible) is to soft launch first.
Put up the site/app, don’t make a big fuss about it, start gaining customers by individually emailing & signing them up.
Your first “launch” is then the announcement of a concrete traction milestone.

It probably will not be too long before the launch announcement is made. The hype is building. Hopefully it won't be a let down.
