The credibility of Craig Wright’s claim to be Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto took another hit on May 25, when he was called a liar in a message signed by 145 of the 16,404 Bitcoin block's addresses he told a court in January he had mined.
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.
The third Bitcoin halving is here, bringing with it a lot of hype. Why? Well, at the first halving, BTC was $12, and spiked as high as $1,132. At the second, it was $648 and climbed as high as $19,497. For the third Bitcoin halving, today, it was at $8,763.
In a May 6 filing, attorney Velvel Freedman asked the court for more time to file sanctions against Craig Wright, claiming the list of addresses for the 1.1 million bitcoins he said he mined as Satoshi Nakamoto are fake.
