Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto is not Dorian Nakamoto, he says

On February 11, 2009, someone called Satoshi Nakamoto announced to the internet that he had created a completely decentralized open source P2P e-cash system...

Yup, Bitcoin.

But no one really knew who Nakamoto was in real life, until yesterday when Newsweek reporter Leah McGrath Goodman outed the person she thinks invented the world's most successful digital currency, this guy, 64-year-old Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto.

And then shit got crazy. Journos showed up at the physicist/engineer/computer genius/model train enthusiast's house in Temple City, California.

And he told them he was ready for a free lunch. He hopped into a light blue Prius, and drove off with Ryan Nakashima, a reporter at the Associated Press, and they did have lunch... At Mako Sushi in Arcadia.

But the pack kept after them and finally, they took refuge at the AP's headquarters in Los Angeles, and while the journos on the outside tweeted, shuffled and selfied while Nakamoto and Nakashima talked for two whole hours.

Then Nakashima announced that Nakamoto said he is not the man behind Bitcoin at all and had no idea what it was until three weeks ago! Which no one believes.
