Alleged Bitcoin Founder Chased By Reporters

Alleged Bitcoin Founder Chased By Reporters

By Anthony Alaniz

Earlier this week, Newsweek alleged Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto was the creator and founder of Bitcoin, the new, anonymous cryptocurrency.

In the ensuing media frenzy trying to identify the mysterious man, Nakamoto left his home to ride around Los Angeles in a car with a reporter while being chased by several other reporters.

Nakamoto rode with a reporter for the Associated Press, according to Los Angeles Times reporter Andrea Chang. Nakamoto spoke with Chang and he denied being the creator of Bitcoin.

Nakamoto lives in Temple City, Calif., and journalists staked themselves outside his home when the Newsweek report was published Thursday.

Bitcoin was founded in the late 2000s, and has gained popularity as an anonymous and decentralized international currency. The founder and creator of Bitcoin has remained a mystery, though many suspect the creator uses “Satoshi Nakamoto” as a pseudonym.

Many within the Bitcoin community were upset that Newsweek tried to identify the creator.

It looks like we are no closer to learning the identity of the creator and founder of Bitcoin.

Escaped camel injured man, chased cars in rural Los Angeles County

By Anthony Alaniz

An escaped camel rampaged a rural Los Angeles county Friday in the unincorporated community of Acton. The camel was reported to be chasing cars shortly after 8:30 a.m.

The camel escaped from an enclosure and stomped a 72-year-old man who tried to capture it.

“My dad . . . tried to catch it and it must have cornered him or something, and it took off after him, bit him on the head and knocked him down and stomped on him,” Skylar Dossenbach told KCBS-TV. “He crawled under something and the camel tried to pull him out from under it.”

The father was hospitalized. The man, who hasn’t been identified, needed stiches for a gash in his head, Dossenbach said in an interview with KCBS-TV.

Dossenbach said she eventually captured the camel.

“I just put a halter on him, fed him a treat and he calmly walked down to my round pen and I corralled him,” she said in the interview.

Animal control seized the animal because the owner does not have a permit to have such an animal. The owner, who hasn’t been named, could also be cited for endangering residents, sheriff’s officials said.
