Do you know what a Bitcoin is? Do you care? Well, whether you do or you don’t, lots of other people do so here’s a story about a mysterious local dude who was apparently around the groundbreaking phenomena that rocked finance and the internet as we know it with its “cryptocurrency” system.

The Bitcoin inventor is a guy name Satoshi Nakamoto and the 64-year-old is allegedly just a quiet guy who drives a Toyota Corrolla and lives in Temple City.

When asked about Bitcoin, Nakamoto said that he’s “no longer involved in that” and “cannot discuss it.”

“It’s been turned over to other people,” he elaborated mysteriously. “They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.”

According to sources, Nakamoto as an estimated $400 million in Bitcoins, but for all accounts and purposes, he sounds like just another JACK FM listener.
