Dorian Nakamoto denies he’s Satoshi.

In March 2014, Newsweek published a story alleging that a man named Dorian Nakamoto was the creator of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, the infamous Satoshi Nakamoto.

For several days following the article, Nakamoto’s house and family were stalked by reporters, paparazzi and other curious people that bombarded Nakamoto with questions. His home’s photos and other information was publicly shared on the Internet.

Nakamoto denies these claims as false, and is staging both a legal defense fund and a web site, from NewsweekLied.com.

According to the web site:

“Dorian Nakamoto is a 65-year-old unemployed engineer living in Temple City, California. A hardware engineer for various companies over the last three decades, Dorian’s area of expertise was troubleshooting air traffic control systems. He has had no training, education, or work experience with cryptography, peer to peer systems, or alternative currencies. He is not the face of Bitcoin.”

Nakamoto intends to sue Newsweek and seeks funding from the public; ironically, donations in Bitcoin are accepted.

    Yeah right – I read all about it when the story broke. My money is on this being pure smokescreen b.s. play acting and that he is exactly what people think he is – the guy behind Bitcoin.

  2. It took me merely two hours of linguistic analysis from my ‘futon’ to know who the chief name behind of BITCOIN is. Other coders contributed.

  3. The creator is a native English speaker from the US, not Dorian Nakamoto-san.
