Son of Buddhist priest invented Bitcoin (video)

Bitcoin is formless money, dependent on online networks and trading (
Zen ensō (
According to today's issue of Newsweek, Satoshi Nakamoto is...Satoshi Nakamoto. The anonymous inventor of bitcoin -- an online-only virtual currency independent of any country or government now worth about $600 dollars (US) each -- is a 64-year-old Japanese-American.

Exposed by Leah McGrath Goodman
He is a former defense contractor living with his mother in a modest Temple City, California suburban home. He is worth at least 600 million dollars, but he is our neighbor: Temple City, which is largely Asian, is next to Pasadena in the foothills of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley; it is anything but fancy squeezed as it is between Alhambra and Arcadia (of "Joan of Arcadia" fame), next to one of the toniest places in the country to live: San Marino.
According to the article, "He is someone with a penchant for collecting model trains and a career shrouded in secrecy, having done classified work for major corporations and the U.S. military." 

"Nakamoto's family describe him as extremely intelligent, moody, and obsessively private -- a man of few words who screens his phone calls, anonymizes his emails and, for most of his life, has been preoccupied with the two things for which bitcoin has now become known: money and secrecy."

Mega corporations serve the US government
The article quotes him as responding when asked about Bitcoin, "I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it... It's been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection." He may now have to move and hire round-the-clock security for his own protection [assuming he wasn't working for the CIA, a military ("defense") contractor, or other quasi-government agency when he created the currency, in which case they will probably provide him protection free, we imagine].

Bitcoin is virtual not actual "coins"
If he father was Japanese and a "Buddhist priest," that means he was Zen. Like father like eldest son? As a "defense contractor" doing "classified work," we can only assume he is a clandestine operative for the military-industrial complex.

So good luck with trading those ones and zeros; they should go much higher before settling and crashing, like other secret agent projects -- Google, Facebook, Apple -- which have seen major boosts to and stabilizations of their stock prices (read "elimination of any serious competition") due to their profitable affiliation with the CIA, FBI, NSA/DHS and/or other arms of the secret US government.
