    I got subpoenaed in the Craig Wright/Ira Kleiman $6 billion ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ case and I’m not giving them jack

    They gave me a check for $60 to make photocopies and here’s where they can stick it

    On Monday I got a great scoop on the huge Bitcoin lawsuit between Craig Wright and the estate of Dave Kleiman. Modern Consensus ran my short interview before the courts made any announcement. On Tuesday, someone waited outside my unlisted home address to give me a subpoena for all of my calls, texts, recordings, Whatsapp, and even my encrypted Signal and Snapchat messages. Here’s how it went down and how I’m going to fight it.

    Wright and Wrong: Bitcoin SV billionaire loses another round to Ira Kleiman

    Conflicting statements and a fraudulent piece of evidence doom Craig Wright’s attempt to toss out a lawsuit that could cost him billions

    When a judge denies your motion to throw out a lawsuit against you by quoting Sir Walter Scott’s famous line, “Oh! What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive,” it’s not a good thing. Thus it’s fair to say, nChain founder Craig Wright, the Bitcoin SV (BSV) backer and self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, did not have a good day in court on August 15. Although, to be fair, he wasn’t threatened with handcuffs this time.
