If there’s one thing the bitcoin community can credit Leah McGrath Goodman with, it’s that she stands behind what she does.
Goodman, of course, is the author of the supremely controversial piece that aimed to expose the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, bitcoin’s anonymous creator.
Her story took her to Southern California, where her piece exposed the name and address of a man who has fervently denied being who she says he is.
As one would expect, just hours following the publication of the story, Goodman appeared on video (with a number of news outlets) to defend and speak about her investigation. And now that over a week has passed, the community is finally cooling down. And Goodman? Still defending her story.
In a post allegedly made on her Facebook account (according to BetaBeat), Goodman thanked those who have checked up on her.
“I have learned this about the fanatical Bitcoiners: they will see this all in a different light once they reach puberty,” she wrote.
Goodman noted that she is currently staying with a friend and “brushing up” on her shooting skills by night.
“I am not feeling physical fear, but there have been some serious threats. (Nice community, the Bitcoiners.),” she added.
Noticeably missing from the post: any indication of regret from publishing potentially incorrect information.
So we turn it over to you. Do you think there will ever be a retraction on the Nakamoto story from Newsweek? [source of screenshot: BetaBeat]
