Satoshi Nakamoto Revealed?
Perhaps no other question has intrigued the Bitcoin community as much as the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. There’s likely not a Bitcoin trader unfamiliar with the term. And yet for all the intrigue, every attempt to unmask his identity has met with failure, or at least uncertainty.
Now a new theory has popped up, pointing to a Japanese-American by the name of “Nakamoto” who may in fact be the Nakamoto. In a Newsweek interview Mr. Nakamoto apparently said he was no longer involved in Bitcoin and turned it over to others.
Since then, Mr. Nakamoto has denied making such statements and claims that it is all a misunderstanding. He claims that he said he was no longer involved in engineering and that he could not discuss the details because of an agreement signed with his employer.
For the record – I don’t really think it’s him.
