Watch Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto Deny Newsweek’s Claims

While we don’t want to hop aboard the “beat the dead horse” train, we think this video is an important development in the Newsweek piece that made it’s debut Thursday morning.

It’s a follow-up to a post published on newsBTC (and tons of other sites) last night and this morning, where Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto (the man pegged by Newsweek‘s Leah McGrath Goodman as the creator of bitcoin) denied claims he’s ever been involved with the digital currency.

What you’re about to watch in the video above is Dorian at the Associated Press bureau in downtown Los Angeles discussing the ‘exposé’, in which — no surprise — he denies what Goodman wrote.

At the very end, you can visibly see the man’s disbelief in what has been written about him.

Combined with news Thursday evening that the real Satoshi said he wasn’t Dorian, it’s looking like the Newsweek piece has been squashed. The publication is still standing by their story, though, as it’s still posted on the Newsweek.com homepage.
