Dorian Nakamoto is a Japanese-American physicist who some believe to be Satoshi Nakamoto.
According to his daughter, Nakamoto was fired from a job twice in the 1990s, which made him become a libertarian. He later encouraged his daughter to create her own company "not under the government's thumb."
Dorian was considered the likeliest candidate for being Bitcoin’s pseudonymous founder for his lack of denial when questioned about Bitcoin. Instead, Dorian answered “I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it. It’s been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.”
Dorian later denied all claims, stating that he had never heard of Bitcoin up until that point in his interview and that his answer to Goodman’s question was the result of a misinterpretation.
