The creator of Bitclout and the DesO blockchain finally revealed his identity six months after the platform’s launch began in March. His name is Nader Al-Naji. He is a 29-year-old Princeton graduate who worked for Google as a software engineerfor a few years before launching his own project: the creation of a stable cryptocurrency called Basis which aimed to replace central banks.
