What if Satoshi Nakamoto was Satoshi Nakamoto all along?
This post was originally published on this siteThis post was originally published on this site Leah McGrath Goodman, the Newsweek journalist who named Japanese-American man Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto as Bitcoin’s founder in 2014, is doubling down on her claim. In an Aug. 25 episode of the Pomp Podcast with Anthony Pompliano, McGrath Goodman revealed details of the research regarding her original Newsweek […]
First of all, I want to thank the Bitcoin community for the kindness shown and expressed for my brother. My heart is touched. Thank you. I just talked to my brother with my dragon at my side for the first time in at least 2-3 weeks since this Newsweek episode turned our lives upside down, all lines of communications were cut. Majority of the world was not told that Leah was intruding upon people's privacy with zeal weeks before the launching of Newsweek hardcopies. It was agreed that none of "us" would talk. Make-Believe Journalism was never in our minds until the announcement by Newsweek. I wanted to share with those who are interested some of the human interest side. What is endearing about my brother are "things". Social concepts and personal thoughts that would be of a concern to a majority of the populace is not highlighted in my brother character. How would I word this? Dorian is a technically brilliant person who is more comfortable in an old crumpled T-shirt, cargo short pants, white crew socks and doesn't frequent mirrors at times to comb his hair. Leah McGraw Goodman got that right. The hair? Maybe a little more infrequent. These observations are not just mine. Over the decades, his friends who are and were executives in the aerospace firms and software engineering companies have told me the same things. I don't think I am going on the limb when I say that I wear 1/2 size white crew socks, wear Hawaiian shirts a lot and even collect vintage ones at that. That I can spend hours behind flat screens and not shave or comb my hair over the weekend. Since our Lexie, four footed member of the family passed on, I too am out less frequently due to no walks twice a day. If I am a geek, then so be it. I have seen my brother do exactly what he does before there was a culture of computer nerds or geeks, the terms weren't even concepts at the time. Besides, it is anti-fashion statement expressing freedom from fashion tyranny. We talked and at no time did he express or mentioned what the Huffington Post listed as the #1 thing that should be taken from the Newsweek's story written by Leah McGraw Goodman. The number one thing is that his younger brother called him to be an asshole. In usual form, I know that Dorian forgave me and moved on just before we reconnected. I wish that I can have that kind of character to do exactly that in my life. In my life, I tend to remember stuff and not forget even though I have learned over time that I have the ability to forgive people. It's part of my life I have to continuously work on. OK, here it is. Does anyone know or can ponder to guess why the AP reporter was given the exclusive? You guys all saw the video and I'm thinking some saw it over and over for details. Dorian opened the front door and he announced who would buy him lunch. The photographers of all nationalities swarmed in pushing each other flashing cameras and video cameras spearheading the way. No one spoke out but a guy way in back near the end of the low cinder block wall yelled out, "I'll buy lunch". Dorian said that the AP reporter was the only reporter to make an offer to buy lunch while all the others kept on taking pictures and taking videos. That is how the AP reporter was chosen as told by Dorian. Now you all know before any other media. Dorian had to take a short break. I am thinking things were hurting. I asked him what is a "hair ball". He said that he doesn't know exactly what a "hair ball" is and that it is probably what was called a spaghetti program long ago. Not well structured and has a lot of re-writing to do. In the short time he personally glanced at the write ups on the net regarding Bitcoin, he told me that the creator is "brilliant" but a poor code writer and that he could have done better with virtually no errors. With that, I am now convinced that my brother is not the "Satoshi Nakamoto". Can he do it? I think, Yes. I believe it and what's more important is that he is among a very select few of people of "extreme interest" as it was told to me by authority on Friday. I can see where Leah McGrath Goodman and the owner of Newsweek decided to throw Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto under the bus with a 20 to 30% probability that he is and dismiss the 70 to 80% that he isn't. Excuse me but Leah McGrath Goodman is such an 80's name. I am going to do her a favor and call her LMG. She is lucky that I don't call her LSMFT. My stuff. Calculations made for me by BCG from data publicly available sources that there are only 7 people in the world. The initial calculation went something like this. Overall demographics ie: people with computer programming knowledge, coding skills, distributed network knowledge including swarming techniques, Polish notation programming...right down to having lots of personal time to write code, disregard for family or pursuit of sex that would take time and energy, highly disciplined, focused beyond the normal, obsessive personality or just plain as BC put it "crazy" and highly anti-government. And the final kicker of the name Satoshi Nakamoto that is given weight. By the way, Satoshi is not an unusual name in Japan. The name Nakamoto is from what BCG reported, originates from the Hiroshima area as most "moto" or "source" translated phonetically is defined. I have to state that BCG is tied to the pharm medical world with statistical demographic mainframes with various programs with claims of accuracy audited by the FDA. I don't know specifically but I do know that I.Frank Nakamoto was born in Hiroshima before coming to America and then to later be thrown into an American concentration camps as a political prisoner in Perris, California for being a successful and outspoken businessman. I have been visiting his grave over many years at the Evergreen Cemetary in Boyle Heights. What calculations told me is that when it comes to human beings and their unique characters, profiling is a loose and irresponsible pseudo name for WTF, it doesn't work. All the professional behavioral analysts that Newsweek may have hired, their obviously under qualified and desperate legal advisers if they hired some, loosely expert statisticians and financial advisers didn't mean crap when the end result is that they are wrong. It's late and I have to get on with my reality. Once again, many thanks to the one and only forum that is a true community. Thanks for allowing me to vent. Thanks for the many posts of support. For those who a unsure, my sincerest apologies. My intention is to support my brother who supported me as a older brother is supposed to do. As the oldest brother, he, in Japanese and many other cultures including America, becomes the head of the family who takes care of the parent or parents. He is suffering right now and all I can do for this time being is figure out a ways to help from a distance due to irresponsible journalism operating at its finest. Instead of energies to minimize the 2nd Amendment we should spend time minimizing Freedom of the Press? I am not a Libertarian. I am a Conservative who thinks most of the Conservatives are Liberals. Andreas, my sincerest thanks. If we meet in the future, one minute, who is going to buy Dorian lunch? I will buy my brother's and you a lunch. Yalla, bye. As always, I authorize nakamotodragon to answer questions in my absence. Edit: proof for the non believers: http://imgur.com/wfFqpr1
Satoshi Nakamoto is the name that has been assigned to the fictional person who created and designed all Bitcoin protocol and software in 2008, the year in which the network and the first units of coins were created. The identity is still a complete mystery and what is known as Satoshi Nakamoto could be a pseudonym, a person or a group of people. This is one of the biggest mysteries in the world of the cryptocurrencies. There are several journalistic investigations, groups and individuals that have tried to discover their true identity that until now is a mystery, even the CIA has stated that it cannot deny or confirm the existence of this individual. There are 9 possible candidates that could be behind the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto:
He is a professor at the Institute of Information Technology in Helsinki, Finland. A New Yorker journalist, during the search for the identity of Nakamoto, adjudged him to be the creator of Bitcoin because during 2001 he used to program virtual games and coins; however, he has denied having any relationship with this project.
This mathematician from the University of Kyoto, Japan, got to be one of the suspects because he solved the ABC conjecture, this gave sufficient proof for Ted Nelson to consider him Nakamoto in 2013. Mochizuki denied being this person seven months later.
This brilliant computer engineer was identified as the creator of Bitcoin by Leah McGrath Goodman, after that in an interview where, according to the journalist's words, he had admitted being the creator of the project. Nakamoto denied having any connection to work during an interview with The Associted Press.
The researcher Skye Gray in 2013 through a stylometric analysis determined that Szabo was the person that best suited the profile of Satoshi Nakamoto, who is a computer and cryptographic. Even though Szabo developed a pre-Bitcoin coin called BitGold, he denied being the creator of Bitcoin as we know it.
Although he died in 2014, Finney has been the protagonist of many rumors related to the invention of Bitcoin. While he was alive, Finney denied his complete participation with the creation of the cryptocurrency, this action is awarded to him because he was the first person to receive a BTC transaction from the same creator.
Wright is considered the creator of Bitcoin thanks to the fact that he attributed himself this creation on May 2nd, 2006. Although there is a lot of evidence that deny this fact, this man is known as the "FakeSatoshi" in the networks social.
Neal King, Vladimir Oksman y Charles Bry.
The journalist Adam Penenberg in 2013 presented evidence that the trio was a fake person that is Satoshi Nakamoto. This theory originates because these three people applied for a patent in 2008 to register "Computationally impractical to reserve" and this document was used in the official document published by Nakomoto in October of that year. The bitcoin.org domain was registered three days after the patent application. But King, Oksman and Bry totally denied this fact.
Musk is nominated by Sahil Gupta to be Satoshi Nakamoto due to his background in Economics and his experience in history and innovation of many softwares. Musk immediately denied any relationship, but still Gupta says he is the one behind the Satoshi identity.
Although there is no proof that a government agency could have created Nakamoto as a fake person, this is a conspiracy theory that points to several organizations and countries as the creators of the character; the most famous is United States. There are multiple theories and many people pointed out, but really, who knows the true identity of the creator of this network? Will we ever know?
Hey all, GoodShibe here! "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" - Carl Sagan There's nothing like the thrill of the hunt, to think you're following a lead that no one else has. It's easy to get in too deep, to lose perspective when you're so sure you're right. It's like trying to cold-read the Blockchain - the pieces are there, everything is connected, but there's a whole lot of room for misinterpretation if you get even one variable wrong. Leah McGrath Goodman is learning the hard way, right now, the importance of having a great Editor on side. Someone to hold you back and make sure your 'i's are dotted and your 't's are crossed. Because, while I personally take issue with pretty much her whole article, let alone the smug 'victory lap' tone found within it, I lay the blame for its existence, in it's current form, at her Editor's feet. "He stands not with defiance, but with the slackness of a person who has waged battle for a long time and now faces a grave loss." The internet community, not just Bitcoin, did a collective facepalm yesterday as this 'Reporter' proceeded to -- based on a very loose, very circumstantial set of evidence -- dox a 64-year old man; one still recovering from a stroke a few months earlier. Let's let that sink in for a moment. And let's also not forget that whatever failures are present in Leah's article are there because her Editor didn't have the presence of mind to say 'Hey, yeah, maybe we should make sure we're utterly rock solid on this?' Thing is, I generally don't mind 'Gonzo' Journalism - this lady is absolutely no Hunter S. Thompson, but I understand her need for us to understand the journey she's been on. How 'hard' she's worked, alone, for months. But in putting this story out -- clearly everyone involved missed the forest for the trees. "What if we're wrong? What if we're setting up a 64-year old stroke victim to be harassed and attacked for the millions of dollars worth of Bitcoin he's 'supposed' to have?" An Editor is supposed to be the lone voice in the wilderness - the one who catches you, brings you back on track when you've clearly strayed too far. I don't know what happened in this situation -- maybe this person didn't understand enough about Bitcoin to refute her, or reign her in. But the essentials, the core of Jounalistic Ethics (and yes, I know, I rolled my eyes too) is to make sure your facts are straight specifically because, when you're wrong, people can get hurt. And you open yourself, possibly even your Masthead, up to lawsuits. Luckily, American culture isn't known for being a litigious one, or Newsweek could end up in very serious trouble -- especially if something awful befalls this man or his family. Seeing how the 'real' Satoshi Nakamoto has come forward, writing from a legit account denying he's Dorian Nakamoto -- I say 'real' because, without a PGP address, it still leaves the door open for speculation -- this whole article now finds itself in the throes of some very, very dangerous territory. Let's just say that I would not want to be NewsWeek today -- hoping and praying with all their might that those media paparazzos watch their step, that all the stress of the next few weeks doesn't 'get to him'. Unfortunately, as long as Journalists have leaders who are willing to believe that 'any publicity is good publicity', who're willing to be wrong and then double down on being wrong by trying to make the story about the Reporter herself we're going to have issues like this. I hold Ms. Goodman accountable for her story, yes, but her Editor deserves to be receiving far, far more of the flack than they're getting. They had the power to keep this story from being the clusterf*ck that it became. And they failed mightily in that task. I hope Mr. Dorian Nakamoto makes it through this situation unscathed, maybe, knowing American culture, he'll get a book deal out of it. But, if nothing else, maybe the silver lining is that this will put out the clarion call, a reminder for those who would 'report the facts' to make sure, absolutely sure, they have their facts straight. Because there are real lives at stake. It's 8:19AM EST and we're at 57.52% of DOGEs found. Our Global Hashrate is on a sharp downswing from ~99 to ~72 GigaHashes per second.

The Real Story: Leah McGrath Goodman Did Find An Interesting Person.
I have to give credit to journalist Leah McGrath Goodman for finding if nothing else quite an interesting person. Dorian Nakamoto, aged 67, living quietly, is not the bitcoin creator hidden in plain sight. He is an American role model hidden in plain sight, an engineer with a hard science background. He is a testament to America's yesteryears, its dominance in STEM. Looking at Mr. Nakamoto's career in various areas of old defense tech (radio cryptography, etc.) I can't help but feel sad that he was actually laid off after 9/11. For sure, the military industrial complex shed itself of real scientists in favor of engineers who made things go boom. We went from an era when civilian advances were applied to military application to an era of military designs that were advanced at killing civilians. I hope that other journalists take a softer look at this interesting man. I see this fiasco as an opportunity not to hound Mr. Dorian Nakamoto about being what he is clearly not--the creator of bitcoin--but as a chance to ask him the more relevant question of "Are you the creator of (insert something he did make)?" Edit 1. Regarding "radio cryptography" I inferred this from the newsweek source... "She recalls he came to the East Coast after leaving Hughes Aircraft, now part of Raytheon, in his 20s and next worked for Radio Corporation of America in Camden, N.J., as a systems engineer. "We were doing defensive electronics and communications for the military, government aircraft and warships, but it was classified and I can't really talk about it," confirms David Micha, president of the company now called L-3 Communications. Edit 2. TLDR Mr. Dorian Nakamoto has a great story to tell, journalists need to stop pinning bitcoin on him and find out.
TIL that the creator of Bitcoin is still unknown. The identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the computer programmer who invented the digital currency is a pseudonym and could represent a man, a woman, or even a group of people.
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 90%. (I'm a bot)
Satoshi Nakamoto was the inventor of the bitcoin protocol, publishing a paper via the Cryptography Mailing List in November 2008. The New Yorker's Joshua Davis believed that Satoshi Nakamoto was Michael Clear, a graduate cryptography student at Dublin's Trinity College. In February 2014, Newsweek's Leah McGrath Goodman claimed to have tracked down the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Dominic Frisby, a comedian and a writer, also suggests that BitGold creator Szabo was the most likely candidate to be Satoshi in his book, "Bitcoin: The Future of Money". An analysis by Sergio Lerner, an authority on bitcoin and cryptography, suggests that Satoshi mined many of the early blocks in the bitcoin network, and that he had built up a fortune of around 1 million unspent bitcoins. At the end of the day, bitcoin is now far bigger than Satoshi Nakamoto.

Right... Newsweek wants people to respect Dorian Nakamoto's privacy.
So esentially Newsweek accuses the wrong man, Dorian Nakamoto, of being Satoshi Nakamoto, causing a dozen reporters to camp outside the man's house and then to chase him all the way the AP headquarters in LA because. But only after Leah McGrath Goodman becomes to target to criticism por her poor reporting Newsweek publishes THIS: "Moreover, (Newsweek) encourages all to be respectful of the privacy and rights of the individuals involved." http://www.newsweek.com/newsweeks-statement-bitcoin-story-231242?piano_t=1 Oh, I get it. Respect people's privacy only if it's their privacy. If it's Dorian Nakamoto's privacy, then it is "motivated by a search for the truth surrounding a major business story." Right, like knowing who Satoshi Nakamoto is changes anything about bitcoin, its pricing or its overall industry. That's the worst case of incompetence in journalism I've seen in a long time.
Ninguém conhece Satoshi Nakamoto.Identidade do fundador do Bitcoin, desaparecido em 2011, é o grande enigma da era digital
Um dos maiores enigmas da era digital é uma sombra com um nome japonês. Pode ser um só homem, uma organização, um governo ou a própria NSA. Ninguém sabe. Sob o nome de Satoshi Nakamoto se esconde o inventor do Bitcoin, uma criptomoeda que se propôs a revolucionar os sistemas de pagamento na Internet e cujo valor total de mercado hoje é estimado em cerca de 4 bilhões de dólares (12,7 bilhões de reais). Mas ninguém jamais viu o rosto de seu criador nem ouviu sua voz. Em 2011, quando seu invento começava a ser grande e ele poderia ter se tornado milionário, desapareceu. Deixou de responder até os e-mails de seu colaborador mais próximo, Gavin Andressen. Simplesmente disse que iria dedicar-se a outras coisas. O tipo de mensagem que teria escrito alguém que acabasse de fracassar. Não o inventor de algo como o Napster do dinheiro.
Nem sequer se sabe se é uma só pessoa, uma organização, um Governo ou a própria NSA
No final de 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto publicou um artigo de pesquisa onde explicava os fundamentos do Bitcoin, uma nova moeda digital baseada em um software de código aberto e na tecnologia P2P. No documento incluía um endereço de e-mail através do qual trocou mensagens durante dois anos e meio com a comunidade que o ajudou a desenvolvê-lo. O sistema pretendia eliminar os bancos da equação econômica, suprimir comissões, preservar a privacidade nas transações, facilitar os micropagamentos entre pessoas... Nascia em plena crise e possuía todos os elementos relativos ao sinal dos tempos.
Hoje são emitidos 25 bitcoins a cada 10 minutos, e só na Espanha são realizadas 100.000 transações diárias
Hoje, sete anos depois, 25 bitcoins são emitidos a cada 10 minutos no mundo e só na Espanha se realizam 100.000 transações diárias. Muitas empresas começam a aceitá-lo como meio de pagamento (Microsoft, Dell, Destinia…), o Federal Reserve (dos Estados Unidos) estuda incorporá-lo ao sistema e grande parte dos investimentos do Vale do Silício flui para revolucionárias empresas do entorno dessa criptomoeda (230 milhões de dólares somente em 2015). Na Espanha é usada por escritórios de advocacia como o Abanlex. E empresas como a Coinffeine atraem a atenção de todo o mundo por sua guinada à descentralização do Bitcoin mediante a eliminação das casas de câmbio da jogada. A partir de então, a caça a Satoshi Nakamoto (nome que poderia ser um simples pseudônimo) se transformou em um desafio para jornalistas, especialistas em informática e criptógrafos. The New Yorker e o New York Times apontaram seus candidatos sem obter confirmação de nenhum deles. Mas o caso de maior repercussão ocorreu em março de 2014, quando a Newsweek retomou sua edição impressa com uma bomba na capa: tinham descoberto. A jornalista Leah McGrath Goodman garantia ter localizado um cara comum chamado Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto que vivia humildemente em um subúrbio de Los Angeles. Um físico de origem japonesa cuja biografia guardava coincidências demais com os dados conhecidos do fundador do Bitcoin. Falava um inglês um tanto ruim, havia trabalhado para assuntos secretos do Governo, as pessoas em seu entorno sustentavam que podia ser ele... Segundo a jornalista, na entrada de sua casa ele chegou até mesmo a lhe dizer: “Já não estou envolvido nisso, não posso falar sobre isso. Outras pessoas estão agora encarregadas”. Não dava margem a muitas dúvidas. No dia seguinte à publicação, porém, o suposto Satoshi desmentiu tudo. Até mesmo garantiu que seis meses antes desconhecia o Bitcoin. O mais doloroso para a jornalista foi que a maioria dos especialistas consultados respaldaram a versão dele. Depois de um ano de silêncio, McGrath atendeu a este jornal, durante dez minutos, mas quis limitar sua declaração oficial a que tanto ela como a Newsweek continuam endossando e dando crédito a seu artigo, ainda postado em sua página na Internet sob uma petição de retificação do advogado do Nakamoto, que negava ser ele. Alguns acreditam que Leah McGrath continua mantendo sua versão porque deve saber algo mais do que publicou. O Bitcoin é a cristalização de um velho desejo perseguido pelo movimento cypherpunk desde os anos 80 que encontrou a solução no protocolo de Nakamoto. Há uns 14 milhões em circulação – cada um vale hoje uns 220 euros (cerca de 750 reais) – e, pelo modo como o sistema está configurado, permitirá que se reproduzam até 21 milhões (o processo terminaria ao redor do ano 2140). Sua estrutura está baseada na chamada cadeia de blocos, algo assim como as folhas de contabilidade onde são anotadas todas as transações realizadas. Esses blocos são gerados mediante um complexo cálculo que só computadores potentes podem processar (às vezes, centenas deles). Esse trabalho é realizado pelos chamados mineradores, que são recompensados com 25 bitcoins cada vez que obtêm um novo bloco. Um incentivo que começou com 50, mas que cai para a metade à medida que aumenta a complexidade do problema matemático. Logo, seu valor flutua no mercado em função da oferta e da procura, e o preço fixado pelas casas de câmbio.
'Newsweek' afirmou em sua capa ter descoberto o autêntico Satoshi. No dia seguinte, o homem desmentiu
Satoshi Nakamoto foi o primeiro a extrair Bitcoins e poderia ter em sua conta, segundo os cálculos que podem ser feitos consultando a cadeia de blocos, ao redor de um milhão deles. Mas desde que desapareceu em 2011 não movimentou nem um cêntimo. Algo que despertou todo tipo de teoria: desde que perdeu as chaves de sua conta até que os abandonou para não dar pistas de sua identidade. O que está claro é que se trata de alguém que não precisa deles. Além disso, há alguns rastros, extraídos de todos os seus e-mails que vieram a público, que permitem ao menos eliminar alguns suspeitos. Essa é a única maneira de se aproximar do enigma. Nathaniel Popper, jornalista do New York Times e autor do livro Digital Gold, opina que o contexto histórico é muito importante para definir sua identidade. É preciso entender os experimentos prévios feitos na mesma linha (como o Hashcash ou o B-Money) e que Satoshi provavelmente surgiu desse entorno. Justamente, outro desses antecedentes foi o Bit Gold, uma espécie de versão beta do Bitcoin não desenvolvida. Seu criador, um experimentado criptógrafo chamado Nick Szabo, é quem Nathaniel apontaria se tivesse de apostar em um nome real do verdadeiro Satoshi. “Minha aposta é que esteve envolvido, mas que teve ajuda para desenvolver o código. Ele não era o tipo de programador que poderia fazer esse software sozinho. Há pessoas que o ajudam. Não digo que seja ele, mas que todas as evidências obtidas até a data apontam para ele”, pondera com toda a cautela do mundo. Szabo, como todos os demais anteriormente, nega. Para as pessoas mais próximas do Bitcoin, tanto por seu uso como pela militância ideológica, desvendar quem é Satoshi é irrelevante. Assim opina Alex Preukschat, autor da história em quadrinhos Bitcoin – The Hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto (Bitcoin – A Caçada a Satoshi Nakamoto). Para ele, o importante é que se trata de um projeto descentralizado p2p cuja estrutura pode ser aplicada a outros campos da vida. “O relevante é a comunidade de pessoas envolvidas. Isso se aplica também à democracia, que só pode ser igualmente boa como a qualidade das pessoas que a compõem. Nos projetos p2p isso se passa de uma forma mais pronunciada: todos os seus membros constituem a força. Para mim, o mais bonito não é o dinheiro ou a tecnologia, mas as novas estruturas descentralizadas que oferece para a sociedade. Trata-se de uma maneira de organizar e incentivar no futuro comportamentos humanos. Algo assim Satoshi devia pensar quando partiu para fazer outras coisas e renunciou a seu invento, e ao milhão de bitcoins de sua conta.
Leah McGrath Goodman, the Newsweek journalist who revealed Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto as the Bitcoin’s founder in 2014, has again made new claims which further solidifies her case.. According to her, she was able to contact some of the top ten Bitcoin pioneers over mail before publishing her case in 2014. This article purported to identify the author of Bitcoin as an actual man in California named Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto. Written by Leah McGrath Goodman, the article was published on This was when Newsweek columnist Leah McGrath Goodman published a story called “The Face Behind Bitcoin.” Again, McGrath-Goodman’s editorial was based on speculation that Dorian was at least ... In March 2014, a Newsweek columnist named Leah McGrath Goodman published a story called “The Face Behind Bitcoin.” She claimed Bitcoin’s inventor was a retired physicist named Dorian Nakamoto. Leah McGrath Goodman published a report in 2014 suggesting Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, a 64-year-old Japanese-American man and Southern California resident, was the creator of Bitcoin. Although she says Dorian Nakamoto appeared to “tacitly acknowledge” that identity in brief comments made to her, he later categorically denied any involvement in the creation of BTC.
Is This Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto Who Could Be Worth $5.8 BILLION?!
According to wikipedia “In a high-profile 6 March 2014, article in the magazine Newsweek, journalist Leah McGrath Goodman identified Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto, a Japanese American man ...
