After years of shadow-chasing, the mysterious figure behind Bitcoin, "Satoshi Nakamoto", may have finally been exposed.

Newsweek claims to have caught the elusive crypto-character, allegedly a 64-year-old Japanese-American father of six living in Los Angeles.

Interestingly, the piece claims that his alleged pseudonym wasn't actually a psudonym at all - his name is actually Satoshi Nakamoto.

"I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it. It's been turned over to other people," is all he had to say on the matter. Busted? Or is the real Nakamoto still out there?

More blips!

Blipcoins, anyone?
