The founder of Bitcoin SV (BSV) and self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto claimed to own “full rights to the Bitcoin registry” in a blog post on Feb. 13. Very few people outside of Bitcoin SV supporters believe him.
Craig Wright tried to claim that attorney-client privilege protected him from having to divulge whether the “bonded courier” brought him the keys to Satoshi Nakamoto’s $10 billion bitcoin fortune.
The courts have given Wright until Feb. 14 to propose redactions to the latest in a series of trusts that he has said hold the keys to Satoshi Nakamoto’s 1.1 million bitcoins. That’s assuming Wright is actually the creator of Bitcoin, as he claims and many, many others deny.
The trial may not happen until July, but before that Craig Wright will have to answer seven questions about the “bonded courier” who may—or may not—have brought him the data he needs to prove he created Bitcoin.
