Craig Wright, the self proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, mentioned that he cannot abide by a court order to make available a list of all his early BTC addresses, as per a Bloomberg report on June 28

The Australian computer scientist mentioned that he possibly will not be able to access the aforementioned Bitcoins at all.

According to the previous reports, the US District Court of the Southern District of Florida rolled out an order on May 3 necessitating Wright to bring out a list of his public BTC addresses. Nevertheless, the infamous computer scientist was unsuccessful in disclosing his BTC holdings, according to the court order.

It is to be noted that the order was segment of an continuing case against the computer scientist that was filed by the estate of David Kleiman. Interestingly, Kleiman was a cyber-security expert. Many people in the crypto ecosystem have a belief that he was one of the first developers behind blockchain technology and bitcoin.

Lawsuit Between Kleiman & Wright, Missing Bitcoin [BTC] Funds

In February 2018, Kleiman’s estate filed the case in court. He claimed that Wright stole hundreds of thousands of Bitcoin worth over $5 billion after Kleiman’s death. On the other hand, Wright asserts that he provided a significant bit of information concerning the funds and crypto wallets to Kleiman before his death, making it hard to locate the virtual currency wallets or the funds they ostensibly contain.

The computer scientist reiterates that he was the inexplicable maker of the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, i.e. Bitcoin. Interestingly, he even filed United States copyright registrations for the bitcoin [BTC] white paper.

He affirmed that he decided to discontinue working on BTC in 2010, adding that he brought in Dave because he was a friend and he knew who he was and he was a forensic expert and he wanted to swab the whole thing he had to do with BTC from the public record.
