Hi everyone, Andreas M. Antonopoulos here.
I'm fundraising for Dorian Nakamoto, the person named in the newsweak article.
I have no idea if this person is Satoshi, though it seems increasingly unlikely. However, it doesn't matter either way. If this person is Satoshi, then the funds are a small "thanks" and won't make much of a difference.
However, if this person is not Satoshi, then these funds will serve as a "sorry for what happened to you", help with medical bills his family is facing, any legal bills they may incur, or anything else. Most of all, it serves to soften the damage caused by irresponsible journalism and to demonstrate the generosity and empathy of the community, which I know is huge
Here's how it will work. I will collect donations to a single bitcoin address, posted below, with the following rules:
Donations accepted until the end of March.
At the end of March, donations will be converted to USD and delivered to Dorian Nakamoto.
If the donation is rejected by Dorian, then the funds will go to a charity of his choice
If he doesn't want to choose a charity, funds will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation
Any funds sent after the deadline, will be donated to Dorian at a later date, or a charity of his choice or EFF as above.
After the end of March, I will make my best effort to contact Dorian and deliver the donations in USD. I will document as much of that process as possible to prove the donations were delivered, as long as that documentation does not affect Dorian's privacy.
The blockchain will provide transparency of all funds donated, which will not move from that address until the funds are delivered to the intended recipient based on the rules above.


Donation address: 1Dorian4RoXcnBv9hnQ4Y2C1an6NJ4UrjX

WHAT.....You are taking up a collection for a man that has millions of dollars worth of Bitcoins.  That reminds me of the Big Banks bale out of 2009. Welfare for the rich. Roll Eyes

This is obviously for people who don't believe it's him. If you don't agree then don't donate, simple?

I think he rather would just like to be left alone. This is a very nice gesture but it will create more media buzz about him. He is probably longing for the day when everyone forgets about him.

Γεία σoυ ρε Aνδρέα παλλικάρι μoυ,

I have actually tried this but people thought I was a scammer: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=504344.0

None the less, I am glad you did this.

I have donated!

Thank you for putting out the message that Bitcoin belongs to everyone and we are willing to do everything to protect it!

Thank you!  Cheesy

On second thoughts, if Dorian was Satoshi, maybe he would do this as a way of cashing out a few of his own coins. Shocked

So now Dorian is involved with bitcoins.
