In the recent turn of events, the Satoshi Nakamoto issue seems to be coming to a logical conclusion when the court of justice demanded Craig Wright to produce Bitcoin transaction records dating as long back as to 2013.
Craig Wright is a computer scientist and crypto enthusiast. He is a very controversial figure in the crypto space because of his persistent stance on the fact that he is the creator of bitcoin and the person behind the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto.
He has recently become the center of attention because of an order given to him by the United States court. The court has asked Wright to provide a list of the addresses of the BTC that he had been in possession of since December of 2013. The deadline to submit the list is 15 May 2019.

By bringing up Wright in the court the previous case of him exploiting the share of his partner in business Dave Kleiman was also brought up. Dave Kleiman passed away in 2013 unfortunately.
The lawsuit was filed in 2018. Dave Kleiman and Craig Wrights partnership started in2011 for making the firm W&K Info Defense Research LLC. Around this time Wright was accused of wrongfully claiming the bitcoins in possession of Dave.
The court also asks Wright to mention all the transfers he made to Tulip Trust, a blind trust, in 2011 in the list. The trustees and beneficiaries must also be mentioned and all this information is to be submitted to the court by May 8th, 2019.
Dave’s family states that he never gave up the ownership of the mining firm and the court demanded an email from Wright so as he can defend himself with proof but the email provided was fake.
Tulip Trust had almost a million BTC (1.1 million) which is also assessed to be the amount Wright possessed when he transferred his assets.
Some think that Tulip Trust will help in finding out the real person behind the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym. Seeing the current situation many are speculating that Dave Kleiman or Jeff Garzik could have been the identity behind the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym.
