What if Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto was Satoshi Nakamoto all along?

Leah McGrath Goodman, the Newsweek journalist who named Japanese American Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto as Bitcoin’s founder in 2014, is reiterating her statements.

In an Aug. 25 episode of the Pomp Podcast with Anthony Pompliano, McGrath Goodman revealed details of the investigation into his original Newsweek story, including his written correspondence with Dorian Nakamoto.

The journalist led Pomp through his research, saying that it had been relatively easy to contact some of Bitcoin’s „top ten“ pioneers through email before the March 2014 story was published.

Gavin Andresen and Hal Finney each provided key information that led McGrath Goodman to believe he was looking for one person, rather than a team, and that he was not Bitgold’s inventor, Nick Szabo.

„He was a very prominent candidate for many people, but clearly he was not free to do what those who spoke with Satoshi said needed to be done to create the code,“ said McGrath Goodman.

„His itinerary didn’t coincide at all, as a very busy person, with all this of spending two years working very quietly.

A key piece of evidence in McGrath Goodman’s original story about 64-year-old California resident Dorian Nakamoto was his statement to multiple witnesses that he was „no longer involved in that,“ which was widely interpreted as a reference to Bitcoin.

„I can’t talk about it,“ Dorian reportedly said. „It’s been handed over to other people. They are in charge now. I don’t have any connection anymore.

McGrath Goodman said that one of the things he found most disappointing was Dorian’s statement „after I said I didn’t know [we were talking about Bitcoin].

„I definitely knew we were talking about it – we had been talking about it for weeks before I physically visited him.

McGrath Goodman also cited evidence directly linking Satoshi to Dorian’s location in Los Angeles, as Finney had published data from a broken file destined to be fixed by Bitcoin’s founder.

„That had an IP address that led us to the same neighborhood where Dorian lives in Los Angeles,“ the journalist told Pomp.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity is the holy The News Spy grail of information for those in the cryptocommunity.

Among the wide variety of candidates is Craig Wright, an Australian often referred to as ‚Faketoshi‘. Others still speculate that Szabo may be Satoshi or Adam Back of Blockstream. Even Finney’s name carries weight because of his early role in the development of cryptomontages. Technology pioneer John McAfee has not said he is Satoshi, but he is „99% sure“ that he knows who he is.

AT&T loses claim to dismiss $1.8 million crypto theft lawsuit

Consuelo Marshall, United States District Judge, has dismissed AT&T’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit that alleges the company was negligent in failing to prevent the theft of $1.8 million in cryptomoney from investor Seth Shapiro.

In the judge’s order allowing the lawsuit to proceed, Shapiro’s claims of negligence and negligent oversight, claims brought under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and the application for punitive damages, were left intact.

SIM Exchange Attack
Shapiro, an Emmy Award-winning media technology consultant who has previously worked for companies such as Disney and Showtime, filed suit against AT&T in December 2019, alleging the company’s security breaches resulted in multiple attacks.

SIM exchange attacks require the participation of employees of a telecommunications company. The telecommunications employee deliberately or inadvertently reassigns the victim’s account to a SIM card controlled by a malicious actor, who in turn can access information or accounts belonging to the target.

The court order states that Shapiro suffered its first SIM exchange attack during May 2018, in which an AT&T employee „observed SIM exchange activity on [the plaintiff’s] account and assured [the plaintiff] that his SIM card would not be exchanged again without his authorization.

„AT&T failed to implement sufficient data security systems and procedures and failed to monitor its own personnel; instead, it stood by while its employees used their position in the company to obtain unauthorized access to Mr. Shapiro’s account in order to steal, extort and threaten Mr. Shapiro in exchange for money,“ according to Shapiro’s complaint.

Shapiro has until May 29 to file an amended complaint in response to the order.

AT&T also faces an ongoing lawsuit by pioneering crypto investor Michael Terpin, who is seeking compensation of more than $200 million for a $23.8 million SIM swap attack that took place during January 2018.

Last month, the case took a surprising turn when Terpin filed a new lawsuit against the alleged attacker, who has just turned 18.

At the time of the attack, the defendant, Ellis Pinsky, was only 15 years old and returned $2 million of the funds. Now that he is of age, Terpin is suing for the remaining sum plus damages, USD 71.4 million in total.

Speaking to Cointelegraph, Terpin said he was „a little surprised to discover that the alleged mastermind was only 15 years old at the time,“ adding his surprise that „supposedly, this was not his first hack or robbery.

Terpin claimed that Pinsky is in possession of $100 million, stating: „We believe he was being sincere when he told one of our informants bitcoin’s halving, explained, the release of new fundraising rules, wesbanco and iberiabank, a broader contraction, well-known and dangerous by text message that he still had $100 million hidden overseas.
