Will the real Satoshi Nakamoto please stand up?

Newsweek made headlines when its recent front-cover story linked the real Satoshi Nakamoto, the famed creator of Bitcoin, to a curmudgeonly engineer named… Satoshi Nakamoto. You won’t believe what happened next.

Now, Satoshi Nakamoto (the real one) denies it all, claiming that Satoshi Nakamoto (the bitcoin one) has nothing to do with him. Via an article published today on TechCrunch, Nakamoto (the real one), asserts:

“I did not create, invent, or otherwise work on Bitcoin. I unconditionally deny the Newsweek report.”

It’s the latest chapter in the ongoing, mysterious saga of Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency sweeping the globe. Will it ever end? Probably not.
