    50 of Satoshi Nakamoto’s bitcoins just moved. Maybe.

    The transfer of $489,000 in BTC from a digital wallet created in February 2009 re-energized speculation about the identity of Bitcoin’s creator, and Craig Wright’s claim to that mantle

    Wright is being sued by Ira Kleiman, the adopted brother of Wright’s late partner, Dave Kleiman, for half of a 1.1 million bitcoin fortune. Those bitcoins are thought to have been mined by Satoshi Nakamoto at the beginning of the first blockchain.

    Judge to Craig Wright: Your word is worthless

    The court ruled against nearly every argument the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto made about what evidence should be shown to a jury

    “I give no weight to sworn statements of Dr. Wright that advance his interests but that have not been challenged by cross-examination and for which I cannot make a credibility determination. I have previously found that Dr. Wright gave perjured testimony in my presence,” Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart wrote in a scathing 14-page order.
