Newsweek Stands by Story Identifying Physicist as Bitcoin Maker

Newsweek magazine said it stands by reporter Leah McGrath Goodman’s story identifying a 64-year-old physicist as the founder of Bitcoin, despite the man’s denial of any role in the digital currency.

“Ms. Goodman’s research was conducted under the same high editorial and ethical standards that have guided Newsweek for more than 80 years,” the magazine said today on its website. “Newsweek stands strongly behind Ms. Goodman and her article.”
