Dorian Nakamoto is trying to strike back at Newsweek. The California man is attempting to sue the magazine after it published a cover story by Leah McGrath Goodman alleging that Nakamoto was actually the Satoshi Nakamoto, creator of bitcoin.

After the article appeared, Dorian denied being Satoshi (although that is his middle name), as well as any involvement in the creation of the online currency. Now he has created a legal defense fund to help his case. The URL is newsweeklied.com
