Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto Addresses Bitcoin Community: “I Want To Hug You”
He is maybe the most nicest man in the world.
Remember in March this year, when Newsweek re-launched their print publication with a startling bit of investigating journalism that claimed Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonym behind the anonymous man/men who created Bitcoin, was actually just a 64-year-old guy called Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto who collected model steam-trains and lived in a small California home?
In this video released overnight, Dorian thanks the Bitcoin community for their support “in this ordeal that I’m still fighting”, and for a Bitcoin fund they put together in Dorian’s name under the guidance of Andreas Antonopoulos, who appears beside him on the couch. “I want to hug you — the two thousand of you — who donated. I’m very happy. Each one gives me a tick in my heart. Thankyou very much.” (Nawwww. Unless he actually is the guy, in which case he’ll just throw them on top of his already-accumulated USD$485 million worth of Bitcoin.)
“I am not Satoshi Nakamoto, as portrayed,” he reiterates. “My name is DORIAN Satoshi Nakamoto — and of course if I was the real creator, I would never use my real name.”
