Self-Proclaimed “Satoshi” Faces a Lawsuit Concerning $10 million

post image

Around two years ago an earlier inglorious person called Craig Wright, an Australian cyber specialist and businessperson proclaimed himself as a creator of the first crypto-coin in the world.

Presenting himself as the “real” Satoshi Nakamoto, he failed at persuading everybody in this, especially experts, who even said that there was a lack of proof.

In late February 2018, Wright came into the light once again as he had been sued for over $10 billion by relatives of his business partner, who passed away. And, of course, the case is connected to BTC.

Wright in the Light

The first of all media, which reported about so-called “Satoshi Nakamoto’s” case, was the technological website Motherboard. According to the lawsuit, filed in a Florida court two weeks ago, Wright allegedly mined BTC units with a coder Dave Kleiman who passed away at the dawn of cyber money in 2013.

After that, the self-appointed creator of the first cryptocurrency ever most likely devised a machination to snatch his former partner’s BTC pieces.

As Kleiman’s estate plaintiff, his sibling Ira, notified that the total amount of cyber coins is unknown. However, as he said, there could have been involved 300,000 – 1.1 million BTC.

Also, in the lawsuit, it is mentioned that it remains inexplicit whether Wright and his former colleague created bitcoin or not. However, it is clear that both of them dealt with BTC since its dawn and gained fortunes thanks to it between 2009 and 2013.

As it is also mentioned in the filing, at the moment of Kleiman’s death none of his family members knew how much he was involved in bitcoin’s creation.

Notably, Wright even used counterfeit documents to persuade his ex-partner’s family in the fact that Kleiman made him a full successor of a company that two of them established.
