Craig Wright seized up to 1.1 million bitcoin

Craig Wright seized up to 1.1 million bitcoin

On February 14, a lawsuit was filed in a Florida court on behalf of Ira Kleiman. Dave Kleiman’s brother took legal action against Crag Wright, leading scientist nChain, which is now developing an alternative to Bitcoin Core.

The lawsuit claims Wright and Kleiman mined bitcoins together at an early stage after the Bitcoin system was launched, and then since Kleiman’s death Wright has “perpetrated a scheme” to “seize Dave’s bitcoins.”

Australian Craig Wright, who claimed to be Bitcoin’s anonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto in 2016 but could not prove he invented bitcoin, was sued for up to 1.1 million BTC and intellectual property related to Bitcoin software. Perhaps now, Dr. Wright uses this intellectual property including the program code to develop an alternative version of Bitcoin Core.
