The original paper that proposed Bitcoin is credited to a "Satoshi Nakamoto."
It was widely assumed to be a pseudonym for the team of coders behind the virtual currency.
But then, came this - a blockbuster Newsweek cover story, written by Leah McGrath Goodman, that names Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto as "the mystery man behind the crypto-currency."
The report has generated a lot of controversy, especially among members of the Bitcoin community who say the evidence is insufficient and circumstantial.
And since the revelation, Mr. Nakamoto himself has denied any link to the virtual currency.
So is he truly the brains behind Bitcoin?
That was the first question I posed to Newsweek's Leah McGrath Goodman…
Well, looks like very bad journalism. She messed up. The editor messed up. Newsweek messed up. A stain on her reputation. Hope he sues her and Newsweek to the ground.
In other words Bitcoin is a perfectly transparent organization, the kind that only the best and the brightest invest in.
I can say in all candidness and sincerity that it's not me.
This is a beautiful example of failed journalism.
The subject's name is mangled in the first 30 seconds.
There is no attempt to make sure the subject is the actual subject of the story, everything is assumed.
Does anyone in journalism care about truth?
This is a pathetic joke.
