    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.

    The Tulip Trust III is the latest in a series of trusts revealed by Craig Wright, who claims to be Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Wright claims the trusts hold the private keys to a cache of 1.1 million bitcoins Nakamoto mined at the beginning of the original blockchain. The vast majority of the cryptocurrency community believes he is lying.

    Craig Wright: Turning over documents could land me in jail

    The self-proclaimed bitcoin creator told a U.S. judge that following her orders in the lawsuit seeking half of Satoshi Nakamoto’s $10 billion in bitcoin would violate the law in his native Australia

    Just a week ago Judge Beth Bloom gave Wright until Valentine’s Day to redact and hand over anything privileged in the “Tulip Trust III” document, which may contain the keys to unlocking Satoshi Nakamoto’s 1.1 million bitcoins.
