` Nakamoto denies he is the creator of `Bitcoin ‘ despite earlier reports ‘

#AceFinanceNews says that Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto has denied that he is the creator of Bitcoin, despite an earlier report.

Newsweek claimed Nakamoto is the person who wrote the computer code underpinning Bitcoin.

However, he denied in an interview with AP that he had anything to do with the digital currency. Nakamoto, 64, said he had never heard of Bitcoin until his son told him he had been contacted by a reporter three weeks ago.

Bitcoin has become increasingly popular because it allows people to make one-to-one transactions, buy goods and exchange money without involving banks, credit card issuers or other third parties.
