Craig Wright Likely Faked Bitmessage Messages, Developer Reveals Regarding the Tulip Trust
A developer named Jonathan Warren has recently testified in court for the current Kleiman versus Wright case. The developer, who created Bitmessage, talked about his role in creating the app and has given his opinion about whether the messages that were presented by Craig Wright in the case were fake.
He affirmed in his testimony that the so-called creator of Bitcoin has probably faked the messages that were presented to the court. According to them, Wright could prove that he did owe the money to his associate and that he was the creator of Bitcoin.
However, according to the developer, the protocol was only out by November 19 and the images are dated November 6 to 13, so it is very unlikely that there were legitimate.
He also said that it was possible to trick the software in order to present a different date, alleging that Wright could have done it in order to fake the messages and make it look like they were from before then they actually were.

The Kleiman v. Wright Case
Craig Wright is currently being accused of scamming his late partner Dave Kleiman out of millions of dollars worth of BTC.
Dave, who has died a few years ago, never received his share of some joint investments they both had, according to the accusations. The case was presented by Dave’s brother Ira.
In order to prove that he did not do it, Wright presented several messages that were taken out of Bitmessage. These messages and their authenticity is very important for the case, so now that they are being discredited, Wright will certainly have a very hard time in order to defend that he is telling the truth.
