Craig Wright is a computer scientist who made himself more known by the crypto community by claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto. So far, he hasn’t hesitated to sue those who have publicly challenged his claim. Last year, he filed suit against 16 Bitcoin developers. Now, it appears that the trial will soon take place.
See you in 2024 for a full trial!
Tulip Trading Limited is a company owned by Craig Wright who has often tried to convince that he is Satoshi. The company had filed a complaint against 16 developers allegedly responsible for the Bitcoin network. The complaint alleges that developers have certain obligations to effectively monitor the Bitcoin network. It specifically mentions ” fiduciary duties » and « duty of care “.
The complaint had been rejected in March 2022. But the complainant appealed, successfully. Finally, the London Court of Appeal announces that this case will be judged.
In fact, Wright stated in his complaint that developers must edit protocol code. The goal is to give him access to 111,000 bitcoins (BTC). This amount of BTC is found on two wallets whose private keys were stolen and then erased in a hack. Wright claims to be the owner of these. One of the wallets contains almost 80,000 BTC believed to be linked to the Mt. Gox hack.
The UK court has indicated what will try the full trial in early 2024. She claimed that the complaint presented a “ serious question to judge “. She cited reasons that would justify the appeal being successful. In this regard, she said that the case warrants a trial, as the relevant legal area is developing. She added that this area is also uncertain and complex.
Last October, a Norwegian court ruled against the alleged creator of Bitcoin. Indeed, he stated that Wright lied and cheated while trying to prove that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Despite the computer scientist’s assertions in the lawsuit at issue, he did not win against Hodlonaut. Meanwhile, other players are believed to have created the Bitcoin blockchain. For example, last December, Martin Shkreli indicated that Satoshi Nakamoto is actually Paul Le Roux. Despite his demonstrations, it is still difficult to say with certainty who created Bitcoin.
