US Court: Alleged Bitcoin Inventor Allowed to "Keep" 1.1 Million Bitcoins

Alleged bitcoin inventor Craig Wright has largely won a lawsuit in Florida and is not required to transfer tens of billions of dollars in bitcoin to the family of his deceased business partner. However, 100 million actual US dollars are due to copyright infringement, CNBC reports. If he actually has access to the bitcoins in question, it shouldn’t be a problem, otherwise it should. The 2018 lawsuit involved half of the total 1.1 million bitcoins that were mined shortly after the cryptocurrency was created. At the start of the legal dispute, it was valued at around US$10 billion, but is currently valued at around US$50 billion.

Despite the $100 million fine, Wright sold the verdict as a victory., He felt completely rehabilitated, he said in a shared video on twitter, Had he lost in court, he would have had to prove that he actually had access to the bitcoins at the time to pay the dues. There is still doubt about this. But even to pay the now-imposed US$100 million fine, he is likely to rely on the huge crypto asset. It was awarded to a joint venture that Wright had established with Kleiman. Whether or not something is happening to the bitcoin address in question will now be followed with enthusiasm.

Wright is an Australian computer scientist who now lives in the UK. In 2016 he created a sensation by claiming to be the famous bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto. Together with his business partner Dave Kleiman, who died in 2013, he created cryptocurrency and wrote the famous white paper on it. As the first bitcoin miner, he would have mined assets that were on issue in court and which are still untouched. Kleiman’s brother accused Wright of misusing shares in bitcoin, company assets and intellectual property through fraud and forged contracts. The court only partially agreed, with Wright now saying he felt fully rehabilitated.

Wright’s claim was initially believed by many parties, and he was even able to convince the main developer of bitcoin at the time. But suspicion had risen sharply and the purported receipts had become sleight of hand like post-dated documents. Wright could substantiate the claims by proving that he actually had access to the bitcoin assets in question. He had assured in the court that he would do so if the court decided in his favour. NBC Sea He also promised to donate the “majority” of the vast fortune. But for this he has to actually get the crypto currency.
