Unveiling Satoshi Nakamoto Has the creator of Bitcoin been right under our noses?

Unveiling Satoshi Nakamoto Has the Bitcoin creator been hiding in plain sight?

Author: Laure Elizabeth IACOUCCI, translated by: Shan Ou Ba, LianGuai


Dorian Nakamoto is perhaps the most famous name associated with the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, in the crypto community. But are there enough similarities to prove the comparison reasonable?

Who is Dorian Nakamoto, a popular candidate for the creator of Bitcoin?

There is no doubt that Dorian Nakamoto is one of the more mysterious candidates considered to be Satoshi Nakamoto. We know very little about Dorian, only that he was born around 1950, claims to be Japanese, and has a degree in physics from the California Institute of Technology.

After graduating, he contributed his newly discovered skills to classified government projects in the United States. He is likely to have become a victim of layoffs in the 1990s, prompting him to undergo retraining and become a teacher and welder.

After Newsweek named Dorian as the mysterious father of Bitcoin in 2014, his life underwent a significant change. Since then, he has become a regular in the cryptocurrency field and has participated in cryptocurrency events with industry participants.

How does Dorian evaluate Satoshi Nakamoto?

Dorian Nakamoto refuted Newsweek’s claims in an interview with the Associated Press.

He said, “What I said is that I am no longer doing engineering work, that’s all. Even if I did, when we are hired, you have to sign documents and contracts committing not to disclose any information we learn during and after employment. So that’s what I was implying. It sounds like I used to be involved with Bitcoin, but it seems that I’m not anymore. That’s not what I meant. I want to clarify that.”

The physics expert also pointed out that the founders of important projects like Bitcoin are unlikely to use their real names.

Is he the creator of Bitcoin? Expert opinions

When analyzing the relationship between Dorian Nakamoto and Bitcoin, the first thing to consider is a comment made by Satoshi Nakamoto on the P2P Foundation forum after Newsweek’s report. In this post, the pseudonymous founder explicitly denies being Dorian Nakamoto.

There have been speculations about whether this denial was just a diversion tactic. Some members of the cryptocurrency community still believe that Dorian is indeed the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, but deny these rumors for security reasons.

The connection between the two is based on several facts and apparent coincidences. Firstly, both individuals have similar names and are both Japanese. Secondly, Dorian Nakamoto resides in Los Angeles, which is a common area for several individuals suspected to be pseudonymous creators of Bitcoin.

Therefore, it is highly likely that Dorian has had some contact with a group of computer scientists and programmers who have contributed to the creation of Bitcoin.
