Will Craig Wright Provide Bitcoin Ownership Records? : US Court Issues Order against Craig


Florida based United States District Court issued an order on May 3 against the self-proclaimed bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto Craig Wright to submit a list of his public bitcoin [BTC] addresses.

The order came out in connection with the ongoing lawsuit against Craig Wright filed by David Kleiman, the estate of computer scientist recently. According to the reports the lawsuit allegedly claims that Craig Wright has stolen hundreds of thousands of bitcon [BTC]. In February last year the coins were worth over $5 billion dollars, when Kleiman’s estate first filed lawsuit against Wright.

The issued order describes various numbers of requests by the plaintiff. They have requested the court to issue order against Wright to submit a list of the public addresses of bitcoin [BTC] he possessed as of Dec. 31, 2013. In addition Craig has to identify all bitcoin transferred allegedly to a blind trust in 2011 and produce documents and data related to the mentioned trust.

The plaintiffs ask the court to issue order against Wright to identify under oath the identity of the past and current beneficiaries and trustees and of the mentioned trust. Further the last request the plaintiffs requested is to give permission to further deposition of Wright with regard to his ownership and hold over bitcoins.

The document also describes that the court has reevaluated its order on Craig Wright’s previously filed case to not to disclose information regarding his personal bitcoin holdings. The court has denied Wright’s case and the court further added that Wright should produce all transactional records of the blind trust which includes all the records of transfer of bitcoin into blind trust in or about 2011 by on or before May 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm eastern time.

In April CoinMarketFeed reported, at the end of last year an U.S. based court rejected repeated requests from Craig Wright to release the Kleiman lawsuit.

Earlier in April, CoinMarketFeed reported bitcoin creator, Bitcoin SV [BSV] proponent and NChain chief scientist Craig Wright has filed a libel claim against cryptocurrency podcaster Peter McCormack in the United Kingdom. McCormack posted a photo of the legal notice on April 18 on his official Twitter handle.

According to the reports, the claim outlines that McCormack accused Wright of fraud and falsely claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of bitcoin (BTC). According to BSV-focused cryptocurrency media sources, the claim target to restrict McCormack from making more fraudulent claims that Wright is the person behind the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym.
