In a deposition released on June 19 in Kleiman v. Wright, it is clear that the adopted brother of Craig Wright’s late partner, Dave Kleiman, is nearly Bitcoin-illiterate. But he does know that if Craig and Dave really were behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto—which most of the crypto community doubts—there are 550,000 BTC with his name on them.
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.
