Craig Wright Withdraws Email Submitted As Evidence To Court After Crypto Community Calls Him Out
Craig Wright Withdraws Email Submitted As Evidence To Court Due To Email Verification Issues
Craig Wright, who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin’s creator, has decided to withdraw Exhibit A which is a set of emails between David Kleiman and Uyen Nguyen. In a document presented to the United States District Court Southern District of Florida, Attorneys for Dr. Craig Wright explained that the defendant cannot verify the date of the emails. Nonetheless, the motion is maintained against the plaintiffs.
Craig Wright Withdraws Exhibit A
A few days ago, a Reddit user explained that Wright submitted a fake email as evidence to the court for the Kleiman – Wright lawsuit. According to this lawsuit, Wright stole $1 million Bitcoin from Dave Kleiman when he died. This is the reason why Wright is being sued for several billions of dollars.
On the matter, the redditor explained:
“Craig Wright’s fraud continues. Yesterday, he submitted into evidence an email he says was from Dave Kleiman to Uyen Nguyen asking her to be a director of his ‘bitcoin company’ in late 2012. It is probably fake.”
At the same time, the name Kleiman was misspelled as Klieman. It seems that because of these issues, Mr. Wright decided to withdraw this evidence since he said that he cannot verify the date of the email exchange.
This is not the first time that Mr. Wright is involved in controversies in the crypto market. The creator of Bitcoin SV (BSV) has also decided to sue the Twitter user Hodlonaut for saying that Wright was not Satoshi Nakamoto. Because of the decision that Wright took, the whole crypto space started to defend Hodlonaut. Indeed, some exchanges decided to delist the digital currency BSV, including Binance and ShapeShift. After this, BSV crashed and fell to the 14th position in the crypto market.
It would be poetic justice if Craig Wright ends up falling to perjury charges as a result of faking more cryptographic signatures. https://t.co/q7Vc4mvY7F
