Alright ya beautiful lovelies, CryptoFirstNewsBadger here filling in for yer regular old presenter. And I know you’re thinking you look just like him. You sound just like him and you probably saw me getting me groceries at t’same superstore in t’same town at t’same time. But I assure you I am someone completely different and it would be hapsolutely impossible for you or anyone else to ever ever know me true identity. So I can say whatever I want, I could say Beanie is a ginger twat and there would be no comebacks. As far as you know or care, I am a ghost.

This was a fun watch.

There is obviously a place for acting under another name. Think: Batman v. Bruce Wayne.

In the case of investments, investors get what they pay for. And if that means that they invested in something without knowing who its creator is, or knowing them as pseudo… well, do they need to know their real identity? My arguement is no, they do not. Otherwise, if identity was a factor in their involvement, they wouldn’t have done so.
