Neal Stephenson shuts down Satoshi Nakamoto speculation

"I definitely do not have the lifestyle of a person who has that much money"

Neal Stephenson, the American writer known for his works of speculative and science fiction, is not Satoshi Nakamoto, OK?

Stephenson addressed the subject during an interview on the Conversations with Tyler podcast in response to a Reason magazine article published earlier this year.

He added: “I just had a conversation last night with a friend of mine here who’s looking at a really cool possible new application of distributed ledgers. Whether that distributed ledger is based on blockchain, I think, is a separate question. Blockchain seems to be a pretty complicated and expensive way of doing that.”
