One of the best things to hit the crypto industry, in terms of intrigue and gossip, is the Craig Wright/Dave Kleiman case. Well I say one of the best things but in reality, the case is very controversial.
An industry educator that was attendance in the Southern District of Florida court, wrote that David Kleiman was awarded 50 percent of the supposed 1.1 million Bitcoin mined and 50 percent of intellectual property that Wright owned prior to 31st December 2013. Given that Kleiman has passed away now, his estate was awarded the half.
Bad news BSV.— 22nd Century Crypto (@22centurycrypto) August 26, 2019
KLEIMAN AWARDED 50%IP AND BITCOIN MINED BEFORE DEATH
JUDGE REJECTS ALL CSW TESTIMONY
FINDS CSW PERJURED LIED FALSIFIED DOCUMENTS
22nd Century Crypto also claims that Craig Wright “perjured, lied [about] and falsified documents”. As there are no public documents released about the matter, this cannot be verified.
Other prominent cryptocurrency members have come out to mention the case, including Peter McCormack who was famously sued Wright’s party for an alleged defamation.
Several members of the Bitcoin SV community have come out to rebut that this ruling means anything. A hardcore decentralist and a backer of BSV, Kevin Pham argues that this doesn’t mean anything in regards to Wright's claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto.
Also you do know Kleiman's camp agrees that Craig is Satoshi right?— 1phamily (@_Kevin_Pham) August 26, 2019
This case is about rightful ownership of early Bitcoins and IP related to the creation of Bitcoin,
Not about proving Craig is Satoshi.
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
