The colossal arrogance of Newsweek’s Bitcoin “scoop”

The colossal arrogance of Newsweek’s Bitcoin “scoop” | Bitcoin | Scoop.it

WIthout more evidence, it's time for a retraction....

 

...The problem with the story is that it doesn't appear to be true. Dorian Nakamoto—who hasn’t gone by the name “Satoshi” in almost 40 years—made the second of two very public denials this week. “I got nothing to do with it,” Nakamoto said during his first denial, a two-hour interview with the Associated Press.

 

Goodman’s story looks like a scientific experiment gone bad: it can’t be replicated. It’s grounded in assumptions, topped with myths and stereotypes, and then backed up by an arrogant-sounding “trust us” defense.

 

The AP video shows a man who appears wholly convincing. “The main reason I’m here is to clear my name, that I have nothing to do with Bitcoin,” Nakamoto said. “Leah wrote all that?” he added with a shake of his head, incredulous.

Instead of printing banknotes or minting coins, a list of the registration numbers of each of the "bitcoins" and their owners is kept. In the last week, however, Bitcoin has found itself under siege for a variety of problems, and since then, the price of the coins has tumbled.

A $25 million bet on Bitcoin: is this really the "tipping point?" | GigaOM Tech News

A $25 million bet on Bitcoin: is this really the "tipping point?" | GigaOM Tech News | Bitcoin | Scoop.it

Is Bitcoin about to enter the mainstream? It sure looks that way after high profile investors plowed $25 million into Coinbase, a start-up that provides Bitcoin-related services to more than 600,000 people and to a growing list of well-known merchants.

 

Yet Coinbase’s boast that Bitcoin is at a “tipping point”‘ may be premature. The currency still has a lot to prove, especially when it comes to showing that Bitcoin can ever catch on as an everyday payment mechanism. Here’s an overview of what recent big investments really mean, and what it will take for Bitcoin to stick around for good.
