Leah McGrath Goodman, the Newsweek reporter, the appointed the Japanese-American Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto as the founder of Bitcoin in 2014repeats his statements.
In an episode of the August 25th Pomp Podcast with Anthony Pompliano, McGrath Goodman revealed details of his investigation into his original Newsweek story, including his written correspondence with Dorian Nakamoto..
The journalist led Pomp through her investigation and said so Before the story was published in March 2014, it was relatively easy to contact some of the “top ten” Bitcoin pioneers via email.
Gavin Andresen and Hal Finney each provided important information which led McGrath Goodman to believe that he was looking for a single person rather than a team and that he was not Bitgold’s inventor, Nick Szabo.
“He was a very prominent candidate to many people, but he was clearly not free to do what those who spoke to Satoshi had to do to create the code,” said McGrath Goodman.
“His itinerary did not match at all as a very busy person, as he worked very quietly for two years.”
Important evidence in the original McGrath Goodman story about the 64 year old California resident, Dorian Nakamoto gave his testimony in front of several witnesses and said that “he was no longer involved”.which has been widely interpreted as a reference to Bitcoin.
“I can’t talk about it,” they say Said Dorian. “It was passed on to someone else. You are now responsible. I have no connection anymore.”.
McGrath Goodman said one of the things he found most disappointing was Dorian’s testimony “after he said he didn’t know [que estábamos hablando de Bitcoin]”.
“He definitely knew we were talking about it: we had talked about it for weeks before I physically visited him.”
McGrath Goodman also cited evidence linking Satoshi directly to Dorian’s Los Angeles location., as Finney had released data from a broken file that was supposed to be fixed by Bitcoin’s founder.
“”That had an IP address that took us to the same neighborhood that Dorian lives in in Los Angeles“Said the journalist to Pomp.
Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity is the holy grail of information for those in the crypto community.
Among the many candidates is Craig Wright, an Australian often referred to as a “Faketoshi”.. Others are still speculating that Szabo Blockstreams could be Satoshi or Adam Back. Even Finney’s name is significant for his early role in cryptocurrency development. The pioneer of technology John McAfee didn’t say he was Satoshi, but he’s “99% sure” that he knows who he is..
