Judge Threatens To Slap Craig Wright; Admits That He “Does Not Have Access” to Bitcoin Addresses

  • Over the years, Wright has vehemently stuck to his position that he is in fact the person responsible for creating Bitcoin [BTC].
  • In trying to prove his point, Wright has gone as far as filing a U.S. copyright registration in which he claims that he is the author of the original bitcoin white paper.

As per a report released by Bloomberg yesterday, self proclaimed Bitcoin inventor — Dr. Craig S. Wright — recently stated that the reason he cannot comply with a recent court order (which required him to list out all of his early bitcoin (BTC) addresses), is because he no longer has access to the coins in question. Law360's Carolina Bolado was in the courtroom give Crypto Twitter regular updates.

For those of our readers who may not be aware of this ongoing development, a Florida based district court recently issued an order last month against Dr Wright, asking him to reveal all of his public bitcoin addresses. The case was filed by David Kleiman’s estate, who many believe was one of the first people to be involved with the creation of the flagship crypto asset as well as blockchain technology.

Kleiman’s estate first initiated a case against Wright last year when they alleged that the Australian techie had siphoned off hundreds of thousands of BTC (estimated to be worth $5 billion) from Kleiman's coffers after he passed away.

According to Kleiman’s team, Wright forged a number of contracts that helped him illegally procure David’s hard earned assets.

It is also worth pointing out that Wright has time-and-again stated that he gave a “key piece of information” regarding the aforementioned BTC reserves to Kleiman before his death. As a result of this, Wright claims that he is now no longer able to locate the digital wallets that need to be presented by him in court.
