Yesterday, nChain chief scientist and self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright’s attorneys told a judge that the “bonded courier” he has long maintained held the encryption keys to Nakamoto’s 1.1 million bitcoins had arrived. He doesn’t believe even that will quiet his critics.
Craig Wright has just 23 days left to prove his claim he’s really Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin and founder of the cryptocurrency revolution. “Given the Defendant’s many inconsistencies and misstatements, the Court questions whether it is remotely plausible that the mysterious ‘bonded courier’ is going to arrive, yet alone that he will arrive in January 2020 as the Defendant now contends,” Judge Beth Bloom wrote.
A Florida judge ordered Craig Wright to turn over everything, even documents sealed under previous lawsuits by court order.
With the time to file documents in the trial running out, Craig Wright quietly revealed a third in the series of trusts he said contain Satoshi Nakamoto's 1.1 million bitcoins. Tulip Trust III was sealed at the request of Ira Kleiman' lawyers. The brother of Wright's late partner is suing him for half of the Satoshi bitcoins.
