On the Hunt for Bitcoin Founder Satoshi Nakamoto –

March 6, 2014, is a date that the Bitcoin community is not likely to forget anytime soon. On that date, an article ran in newly revived publication Newsweek that claimed to have outed the founder of Bitcoin, the mysterious figure known as Satoshi Nakamoto.

Throughout the day on March 6, my Twitter feed was littered with reports of various journalists chasing the alleged Nakamoto. Throughout the ordeal, in interview after interview, the man who Newsweek claims to be the inventor of Bitcoin repeatedly denied any involvement with it.
