    Craig Wright is going to trial

    After two years, the preliminaries in Ira Kleiman’s $10 billion lawsuit against the man who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto are over and the argument is heading to a jury

    Wright, chief scientist of nChain and genuinely father of the Bitcoin SV cryptocurrency, has long claimed to be Nakamoto, which would give him possession of the 1.1 million BTC. While virtually no one in the cryptocurrency industry believes his claim, the estate of Wright’s late partner at the time those bitcoins were mined in the project’s early days, Dave Kleiman, does and wants half.

    Craig Wright’s wife knows nothing about how Bitcoin works

    Or is a BTC private encryption key like a Mercedes key, in that a mechanic can cut you a new one if you get locked out

    Craig Wright’s wife, Ramona Watts, knows nothing about how Bitcoin works.  Considering that her husband claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous author of the Bitcoin whitepaper, you’d think she might be aware that a Bitcoin private encryption key is not like a Mercedes key. At least Ira Kleiman was honest (or self-aware) enough to tell the court that he does “not really” know much about how Bitcoin works. Ira is suing Wright for half of a $10 billion cache of bitcoins mined by Nakamoto in the early days of Bitcoin. Here’s a beauty from her March 19, 2020 deposition, which was unsealed on June 27.  In it, Ramona Watts was asked by…
