Satoshi Nakomoto, the creator of Bitcoin apparently broke two years of silence to deny Newsweek’s claim to having discovered his real identity.
On the P2P Foundation forum on which he initially announced Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakomoto (or someone with access to his account) simply stated, “I am not Dorian Nakomoto.”
This denial, echoing Dorian Nakomoto’s recent denial to the Associated Press, serves to muddy the waters further as to Satoshi Nakomoto’s true identity.
It seems the wider Bitcoin community remains skeptical of Newsweek’s story, requiring as proof either a message signed with Satoshi Nakomoto’s PGP key or some movement of Bitcoin from early addresses likely belonging to Satoshi.
