Dorian S. Nakamoto, the man who was the subject of a recent Newsweek cover-story claiming he is the original creator of bitcoin, has retained legal counsel. Nakamoto’s attorney issued a statement on his behalf today that reads, “I unconditionally deny the Newsweek report.” The statement also claims that Newsweek harmed Nakamoto’s prospects for gainful employment and has been a source of confusion and stress for himself and his family. Smells like a lawsuit may be forthcoming. [Source: LA Times]
