A day ago, a news article was published stating that the real Satoshi Nakamoto allegedly revealed his identity today. In response to this, the creator of Litecoin expressed his opinion.
Satoshi Nakamoto brought to the world an open source currency, decentralized, without trust and resistant to censorship based on mathematics and cryptography.
If Satoshi had wanted to reveal himself, he would have signed a message with the genesis key. Something less is probably very fraudulent.

As you can see, Charlie is not convinced about this hypothesized revelation. Lee criticized Craig Wright aka "Fake Satoshi", and many others, including Vitalik Buterin, share similar opinions. In order to celebrate the growth and adoption of Litecoin, Charlie announced a tribute today. Check it:

While some have criticized the price falling below $ 75 after the halving, numerous HODLers have welcomed this news.

Mati Greenspan [of eToro], Anthony Pompliano [of Morgan Creek Digital], Ben Askren [UFC fighter], Landon Cassill [Nascar competitor]and many others will be present at this highly anticipated event.
