Craig Wright Claims to Get Access to 1.1 Million BTC
The infamous Australian businessman Craig Wright, who claims to be the creator of the first cryptocurrency, Satoshi Nakamoto, told the court that he had received private keys from the first wallet, which stores 1.1 million BTC. He insists that he obtained these coins with his partner, the late Dave Kleiman. Wright tells the court that a third party provided him with the necessary information and part of the key to unlock the encrypted file. Wright also provided a list of possessions in Bitcoin, requested by the judge. The file that Wright received is a document connected with the Tulip Trust Blind Trust. At the current rate, the market value of coins is unbelievable $9.6 billion. Note, this news caused a huge jump in the price of a Bitcoin SV from $160 to $400. The fact is that Craig Wright is one of the ardent supporters of this project. Recall that at the end of December 2019 at one of the court hearings, Wright submitted a letter to the court, it had a date (June 2011) and supposedly the signature of Dave Kleiman. The letter said that Kleiman permitted Wright to dispose of the coins if, at the time the keys were handed over, they would still be in the Tulip Trust blind trust. Also, some courier was to give the private keys to Wright on January 1, 2020. In response, the judge ordered the self-proclaimed Satoshi to inform the court about the fate of this mysterious courier by February 3 of this year.
