Reading time is around minutes.

Since the 18th August of 2008. when the domain was purchased, and after on January 12th 2009. the first recorded transactions between Satoshi and Hal Finney took place, many have wondered who is Satoshi, since he was listed as the person who created a new virtual currency - Bitcoin.

And while some believe that Satoshi Nakamoto is actually a pseudonym to protect the identity of the actual "inventor", others have advocated a theory that the name does not denote a single person but a group of people. If you believe the latest information acquired by the Newsweek reporter Leah McGrath Goodman - the name was a pseudonym, however behind it does not stand a group of people, rather one effacing individual.

According to a survey made by the mentioned journalist it turns out that Satoshi Nakamoto is really a Japanese, who now lives in California, and is 64 years old. In a lengthy article which you can read in full here, a journalist discovers that Nakamoto was overjoyed when she appeared at the door of the house, but the details that she learned from conversations with his family. Nakamoto has only briefly stated that he no longer needs to connect with Bitcoin, because everything about it surrendered to the care of other people, and that he has no longer anything to do with it.
