Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto rejects that He is the Founder of Bitcoin
In the video he said, “I am not Satoshi Nakamoto. My name is Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto and of course if I was the creator, I would never use my real name. So from that point of view, I’m sure you guys would know that Satoshi Nakamoto is not me. But Leah thinks so, and Newsweek said so, but it’s not true.”
Paying its respect to Nakamoto the Bitcoin community opened up a fundraising effort and asked for whatever amount anyone can pay. Though he has been donated $23,000 by the community and for which he even thanked it, he is still denying that he created Bitcoin after giving thanks to the community.
Some reports even claim that the publication group is receiving threats from some overenthusiastic Bitcoin supporters who have been miffed by the entire development. Though it is not yet clear whether Dorian Nakamoto will sue Newsweek for wrongly accusing him of being the founder of Bitcoin, it looks he is enjoying the attention paid to him.
The best part about the well-knit Bitcoin community is that it never disappoints when it comes to donations and the same thing came true when some of the backers donated 47.925 worth of Bitcoin to Nakamoto. If these Bitcoin are converted to USD, it is valued at $23,000 which though does not sound like a big amount, but it will still help Nakamoto pay bills.
The penchant supporter of the Bitcoin movement, Nakamoto in his latest video said that he is thankful to all those who came up to support him financially. Despite all claims coming from various media publications, the 64-year old Nakamoto has consistently denied being the founder of Bitcoin.
The uncertainty over the claim by magazine Newsweek that Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto is founder of Bitcoin has generated new controversies. Now the magazine and Leah McGrath Goodman, the journalist that reported the news are under fire. Bitcoin community wants clarification from them about the confusion created over the entire issue.
Though there is no confirmation whether Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto is actual inventor of Bitcoin, the backers of the digital currency are still helping him out to take him away from the dire financial difficulties he is in. Contrary to beliefs that Bitcoin founder was in money, the media reported that he in fact is in deep financial crisis and needs money for sustenance.
