Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto: "I got nothing to do with Bitcoin."

A Japanese-American living peacefully in Temple City, California is believed to be legendary founder of Bitcoin. 64-year old Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto made headlines yesterday after Newsweek published a 4,500-word cover story alleging Nakamoto to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the father of the controversial virtual currency.

But Bitcoin enthusiasts doubted the story, citing a few inconsistencies such as Nakamoto's flawed English (the elusive Satoshi Nakamoto is known to write in perfect English). Also, the virtual Nakamoto, according to Bitcoin experts, posted on forums during times that seem to indicate he is living in London, and not California.

Nevertheless, Newsweek's story led many reporters to Nakamoto's house earlier today.

In the afternoon, Nakamoto agreed to an interview on the condition that he will be given a free lunch. Nakamoto also denied any involvement in Bitcoin.

"I'm not involved in Bitcoin. Wait a minute, I want my free lunch first," Nakamoto told eager reporters. Then pointed to a reporter from the Associated Press. "I'm going with this guy," he said.

The Associated Press has published the exclusive interview with the alleged Bitcoin founder. During the two-hour interview, Nakamoto said that he never heard about Bitcoin until his son informed him about a phone interview with Newsweek three weeks ago.

"I got nothing to do with it," he told AP.

Nakamoto, however, admitted that a few details in Newsweek's report are true. For example, Nakamoto did change his real name and that he was a defense contractor. As of this writing, Newsweek is standing to its story.

 

It is still unclear whether or not the real-life Nakamoto is indeed the Bitcoin founder. It could be a clever move to divert the story, or, it could be a "hoopla," as Dorian Nakamoto is describing it.

The reclusive physicist even referred to the currency as "Bitcom" in the interview. Was it an honest mistake?
