There has been another twist in the ongoing legal drama involving Craig Wright and the Kleiman estate. Recently, someone signed 144 BTC addresses, which proves they own the private keys. He accompanied the listed addresses with a message calling Craig Wright a fraud and a liar. The anonymous person posted the message on May 24, 2020. The addresses are part of a long list of addresses that Craig Wright provided before a court. He claimed that the crypto addresses were those held by the Tulip Trust.
More Legal Trouble for Wright
It is part of Wright’s claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto for which he is being sued billions worth of Bitcoin. Thus far, he has failed to provide concrete evidence that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Various people who have analyzed the messages posted by the anonymous poster on the Debian pastezone belong to him or her.
What the message proves is that Craig Wright committed perjury. At this point, going to a full trial would likely end disastrously for Wright. However, the case could all go away if Wright were to admit he is not Satoshi Nakamoto. Despite this, there is the fact that he has committed perjury, which would make things worse for him than before the court battle began.
Some people on social media noted that it would be hard for Wright’s followers to defend him anymore. On social media, some are eagerly awaited what damage control measures Wright will take to deal with the issue.
Some analysts have noted that even though the addresses are from old BTC blocks, they are most likely not from Satoshi. They noted that the Bitcoin contained in the addresses do not match the Satoshi blocks, which are a set of blocks believed to have been mined by Satoshi Nakamoto. Thus far, the person who posted the addresses has not revealed himself or herself. It is unclear why they chose to expose Wright at this point. However, they are most likely unhappy with Wright’s claim that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.
