After creating a lot of buzz among folks, A 64 year old California man Dorian S. Nakamoto denies to be a founder of Bitcoin. Yesterday Newsweek claimed to have found Sotashi Nakamoto as a founder of the very famous crypto currency Bitcoin.
Repeatedly saying “I have nothing to with it” in an interview with The Associated Press, Dorian S. Nakamoto denied the very base of Newsweek report. In an exclusive two hours interview the man said, he had never heard of Bitcoin until his son told him that he has been contacted by a news reporter three weeks ago.
With the Newsweek article, Temple City man got his house flooded with dozens of phone calls and a number of news reporters standing at his door but later in the noon he decided to have a talk about this on a “free lunch”.
He clarifies his statement, “I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it”, as people misunderstood it. Dorian S. Nakamoto a native of Beppu, Japan came here when he was 10 years old and for the same reason he is not good in English like any other American is.
Putting more light on this, Nokomato said, ” I’m saying I’m no longer in engineering. That’s it. And even if I was, when we get hired, you have to sign this document, contract saying you will not reveal anything we divulge during and after employment. So that’s what I implied.It sounded like I was involved before with bitcoin and looked like I’m not involved now. That’s not what I meant. I want to clarify that,”.
Returning back to Newsweek, Leah McGrath Goodman said,” I stand completely by my exchange with Mr. Nakamoto. There was no confusion whatsoever about the context of our conversation —and his acknowledgment of his involvement in Bitcoin.”
Working with Hughes Aircraft in 1973, and Federal Aviation Administration in 1997, Mr. Nokomato has accepted Newsweek saying on having his work a confidential. Though on being asked if he can work on a something like Bitcoins, the man reply was not very surprising. He said, “Capability? Yes, but any programmer could do that.”
Explaining the mystery behind his name, he said he has used “Dorian Prentice” in place of Satoshi Nakmoto as it sounds more western, where “Dorian” means “a man of simplicity”.
