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.
