As you may have heard, Newsweek recently identified the founder as Dorian Nakamoto, a Japanese American man from the Los Angeles area.
Nakamoto has continuously denied the report and now The Guardian reports he has issued what he calls his final statement on the matter.
The first time I heard the term ‘bitcoin’ was from my son in mid-February 2014. After being contacted by a reporter, my son called me and used the word, which I had never before heard. Shortly thereafter, the reporter confronted me at my home. I called the police. I never consented to speak with the reporter. In an ensuing discussion with a reporter from the Associated Press, I called the technology ‘bitcom’. I was still unfamiliar with the term.
Up to now, its been believed the creator of Bitcoin was Satoshi Nakamoto. However, its not known whether Satoshi is a pseudonym or a name for a group of people.
In his statement released through his lawyer, Dorian also addresses the gap in his resume during which he supposedly worked at Bitcoin.
You can read about that in The Guardian.
