Global ho-hum greets hubbub over bitcoin’s creator
March 08, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Who is bitcoin’s real creator? The bitcoin community is reacting to that burning question with a collective ho-hum.

Developers and bitcoin enthusiasts from Finland to Texas are downplaying the media frenzy that occurred Thursday after Newsweek identified the digital currency’s creator as a Japanese American living in Southern California, only to have the man vehemently deny it to The Associated Press.

The furor, they say, means little to bitcoin’s future and whether it becomes officially recognized by the governments and the financial community as a viable form of money.

The written computer code that underpins bitcoin has changed dramatically since its inception in 2009, spawning a generation of entrepreneurs seeking to ride its growing popularity to newfound wealth.

And while most bitcoin users and investors maintain a healthy interest in learning the true identity of the person behind the cryptocurrency, they say the financial platform’s maintenance and growth depends on the many creators who are working on it now.
