Craig Wright unable to honor court order until “courier arrives”

Craig Wright

Craig Wright may not be obeying the court order to prove access to Satoshi Nakamoto’s account. Keys to his Bitcoins account may take some time to be available as he said. The Australian businessman and self-proclaimed founder of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto said further that the keys will be availed by an unnamed “bonded courier,” and that the process may take a while.

As a matter of fact, Craigh believed that there’s no guarantee that this important information will arrive to give him access to the coins.

Owing to this comment made by acclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, the believed creator of bitcoin, many people argue that Craig Wright may not have access to the huge Bitcoin cache purportedly mined by Satoshi.

This has beamed a focus light on Craig in the crypto world as there has been lots of back and forth speculations about the truth of his claims.

Craig Wright, Kleiman court saga

The self-acclaimed bitcoin creator has been subject to several forensic checks and made major news headlines as crypto experts and researchers try to verify his claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto who is also dubbed Japanese Adam Smith.

Earlier in August 2019, he was found guilty in a law court in Florida, the US of submitting false documents and told a lie in a legal dispute with the estate of his former partner.

According to Judge Bruce Reinhart of West Palm Beach, Florida, Craig Wright presented fake documents to the court and lied during the case involving him and Dave Kleiman’s estate.

Owing to that, Craig was ruled to surrender more than $4 billion of cryptocurrency which accounts for over 50% of the bitcoin he mined with his former business associate from 2008 until Kleiman’s death in 2013.

In effect, the Judge found that the encrypted file that supposedly holds the keys to the Bitcoin cache doesn’t exist and that Craig had intentionally told a lie to the court.

In this case, there’s no bonded courier as claimed by Craig, meaning that he doesn’t need a bonded courier to have access to the Bitcoins.

This case is regarded as one of the most popular court cases in the crypto industry as the case was between Craigh and Kleiman estate.

Craig Wright claims of Satoshi being debunked

Craig in a Skype interview with Modern Consensus shared a document with the intent of revealing the origin of “Satoshi Nakamoto” pseudonym.

The document Craigh shared has however been subjected to several analyses and fact-check to debunk his claims.

This article Wright shared is about one Tominaga Nakamoto, who lived between 1715 and 1746 in Japan.

The blurry excerpt from an academic journal seemed time-stamped to early 2008, but closer inspection showed that the format wrong.

However, Craig Wright told the modern observer that he had been busy digging up “old documents” showing the start of Bitcoin.
