Craig Wright, the leading Bitcoin SV advocate who says Bitcoin's creator, said on Friday at the Florida federal court that he could not easily access $ 10 billion worth of bitcoin wealth or even produce the addresses where coins were stored.
Wright is in court to defend the property of his former business partner Dave Kleiman, who claims to have stolen Bitcoin belonging to Kleiman. Wright argued that Kleiman was responsible for hiding Bitcoin's joint ownership of two men to protect Wright's identity as the pseudo-creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. According to Wright, "I brought Dave because he was a friend and knew who I was and was a forensic expert, and I wanted to erase all I had to do with Bitcoin from a public record."
Kleiman's property is highly motivated to download Bitcoin, while Wright claims his family is now "enough" and missing Bitcoin would be "too much money". Property claims that Wright, after Kleiman's death in 2013, has forged a large number of documents to convey to all commonly owned Bitcoins.
Wright allegedly became emotional in the courtroom, cleansed of any electronic devices, and complained that his alleged money was used for illegal activities on the Silk Road and elsewhere. As a result, Wright says he stopped working on Bitcoin in 2010.
If Wright and Kleiman's property really possesses the bitcoins they claim, both have a lot of roles in the process, because Bitcoin's value is owned by an inaccessible creator of a crypto currencies now worth over $ 10 billion. And with Wright currently running Bitcoin SV, worth nearly $ 4 billion, he can hardly afford to have his reputation condemned at trial.
During the discussion, Wright turned on the fighter several times, dropping the document, and using profane language. That is why the judge warned Wright that he would be "in the handcuffs" if he did not undergo control.
Listening ended with an unfinished question. It is supposed to continue later this summer.
