Satoshi Nakamoto, the alleged Bitcoin founder who was outed yesterday by Newsweek, did classified work for the U.S. military and major corporations, a fact that will sit uncomfortably with many Bitcoin proponents should it be confirmed that Nakamoto is indeed the father of the cryptocurrency.
After Newsweek’s Leah McGrath Goodman tracked Nakamoto down to a humble home in Los Angeles’s San Gabriel foothills, she was apparently able to verify his role as the founder of Bitcoin when Nakamoto remarked, “I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it. It’s been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.”
However, after a scrum of journalists later descended on Nakamoto, he immediately backpedaled, telling the Associated Press, “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.”
