He later went on to deny any involvement with the Bitcoin project.Source

Dorian Nakamoto lived just a couple of blocks away from Hal Finney in a small town called Temple City, California. Hal was involved in the Bitcoin project from a very early stage working with Satoshi from his very first message on the cryptography mailing list. Could Hal and Satoshi have been next-door neighbors? Or could this be one big coincidence?Source
