    Craig Wright said this week that anyone else saying they are Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto is a criminal.

    Bitfinex tells court Tether invested part of dollar reserves in Bitcoin

    The revelation came in an attempt to dismiss a fraud and securities law violation suit brought by New York State Attorney General Letitia James

    The Tether stablecoin is backed in some part by bitcoins. David Miller, an attorney for Tether’s sister firm, cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, revealed in court last week that Tether has invested “a small amount” of the reserve dollars backing the tethers (USDt) in bitcoins (BTC). He added that the company had also invested in other undescribed assets.
