On March 6th, 2014, Newsweek alleged that they had found the creator of Bitcoin in the suburbs of Temple City, California. Dorian S. Nakamoto was a 64-year-old Japanese American with a background in physics and engineering.

Hounded by the press, Nakamoto denied all connection to Bitcoin, saying that he had worked on classified military projects in the past, but had never heard of cryptocurrency.

While the community rejected the idea that Dorian S. Nakamoto was the real Satoshi, many members donated funds to help pay for legal expenses pertaining to the Newsweek debacle. Through the years, numerous Bitcoin conferences have invited Nakamoto to speak about his experiences as the falsely-accused Bitcoin creator.

About this Series

"Bitcoin: A Visual History" is a series of 21 illustrations and cinemagraphs commemorating remarkable people and landmark events throughout Bitcoin history. BVH is divided into 3 series of 7 illustrations each, with Series 1 dropping in late August 2020. Series 2 and Series 3 are scheduled to drop in the last quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, respectively.

Each illustration in BVH interlocks with the illustration immediately preceding it, and once completed, all three sets will form one massive unbroken chain of interconnecting illustrations.

Each segment is available as a 1-of-1 ultra-rare cinemagraph, or as a 10-of-10 limited edition illustration.

This series was created by CRYPTOPOP! with the support of WavesWorld.io.
