Bitcoin’s elusive founder reportedly discovered living in California

There have been many theories banded about as to the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. Nothing conclusive has married the name to an individual or group, but now Newsweek claims to have found the Nakamoto, a 64-year-old Japanese-American man of the same name living in California. Allegedly living an understated life, Nakamoto’s said to no longer be connected to the digital currency he’s implicated in making. We know this all sounds annoyingly cut and dry (a story’s often more exciting than the reality, after all), but there’s still Nakamoto’s name changes and classified government work, among other things, to keep things mysterious. Whether this truly is the father of Bitcoin is still up for discussion, too — there’s still been no clear admission as such — so we’ll just point you to the Newsweek piece and let you make your own mind up.
