  1. Newsweek recently spent a considerable amount of time trying to track down the man they believe may be behind the cryptocurrency phenomenon that is Bitcoin. They think they've found their man. His name is Satoshi Nakamoto.

    "What do you think? Is this the real Satoshi Nakamoto that created Bitcoin?"

    Don't know, don't care.

    I care. If Bitcoin ever becomes a new standard for transactions then it's important to know who created it. For a long time I feared it was a government operation to further control currencies.... however after I learned how it's completely decentralized the fear went away.

    Well now that the fear has subsided you shouldn't care anymore just like 99% of the worlds population.

    He could do this all day for a laugh, it screams of people see what they want to see. Funny however.

    Without conclusive proof, such as we found this code on his computer etc. all this is is a form of profiling. Stereotyping at best, and crap journalism from Newsweek. I might find my own Satoshi Nakamoto and write a piece for the hits and ad revenue. I'm sure I can find someone who fits the bill around the google building on Buckingham Palace Road in London...
