Alleged bitcoin creator Craig Wright lawsuit at an impasse


June 20, 2019

Craig Wright has repeatedly claimed to be the creator of bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto, but is now being sued by the estate of deceased computer programmer Dave Kleiman. His estate claims that Wright stole Kleiman's share of the 1.1 million bitcoins they mined together between 2009 and 2013, according to a report by Yahoo Finance.

Florida judge Bruce Reinhart ordered Wright to submit a list of bitcoin holdings to prove he is actually Satoshi Nakamoto. The judge has sealed these documents.

Most recently, the two parties arrived at an impasse in mediation and were unable to resolve the lawsuit, according to another report by Yahoo Finance.
