Dorian Nakamoto, who has said he suffered enormously when Newsweek claimed he is mysterious Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto, just got a 48 BTC (around $23,000) consolation prize, thanks to a fundraiser held on Reddit’s Bitcoin channel.
Satoshi Nakamoto is a creator of Bitcoin protocol and the software Bitcoin-Qt. However, it is not clear whether he is a person or group of persons.
Dorian S. Nakamoto, the man whom Newsweek magazine claimed is the creator of bitcoin, hired a lawyer to ‘clear his name’.
Bitcoin, the crypto-currency first appeared in 2009, stays strong, despite all frenzy surrounding it.
