Dorian Nakamoto was a strong suspect to be the creator of Bitcoin back in the mid-2010s. The last person to realize he might be Satoshi? Dorian Nakamoto.
Back in 2014, Newsweek published a firm opionon article stating that Dorian was in fact Satoshi Nakamoto. This led to the poor senior citizen to be harrased by thousands of people; from members of the press to horrible human beings looking to fleece him of his alleged Bitcoin, Dorian’s life became hell.
But is Dorian Nakamoto the Nakamoto?

You may be scratching your head at that coincidence, but evidence overcame speculation and it seemed that he is in fact not Satoshi.
To take it even further, Dorian penned a heartfelt response to the accusations, which not only completed denied any involvement in crypto, but also went on to stress that due to these accusations he has had trouble securing steady work as an engineer. Furthermore, he wrote, that Newsweek’s false reporting has caused him and his family great stress.
He has asked that we respect his privacy and we are happy to oblige him.
