On reddit Andreas wrote:

This man is such a kind and generous soul. I’m here only as a custodian, it is not my role to say anything, out of respect for Dorian. I’m smiling that he wants to hold the bitcoin, I’m so glad he is happy, wow, how touching.”

This only shows that the Bitcoin community is supportive and not “criminal minded” like many media outlets portray it as. Bitcoin is here to stay and the support that people receive from the Bitcoin community only shows how far it has gone.

Dorian did not say what he will use the money for, he might use it to take action against newsweek. You can read more about Nakamoto’s lawsuit with newsweek here
