Newsweek reported Thursday it had found the mysterious founder of Bitcoin living in Temple City, Calif. But in a two-hour interview with the Associated Press, Satoshi Nakamoto denied any involvement with Bitcoin.

What’s the truth? The internet has many theories.

1. Satoshi Nakamoto is an actor who was hired by Newsweek to help relaunch its printed magazine.

7. Because he might have developed Bitcoins under a government contract.

David Remahl @chmod007

@declanm Conspiracy time! Bitcoin was developed on a government contract covered by NDA.
