Craig Wright’s wife was invited to questioning by the Florida Federal Judge Bruce Reinhart in the $10 billion bitcoin lawsuit that is pending against her husband as we noted already in the previous altcoin news.
The $10 billion bitcoin lawsuit is also pending against the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto-Craig Wright when on July 24 the Florida Federal Judge filed a request for International Judicial Assistance with the Queen’s Bench Division in London. The court of Florida seeks permission to question Craig Wright’s wife and two of their business associates who are all residents of that British jurisdiction. The motion was filed on behalf of Ira Kleiman who is the brother of the now-deceased computer genius Dave Kleiman.
Ira filed a $10 billion lawsuit against Craig Wright back in 2018 saying that he stole about 1.1 bitcoin from Dave Kleiman right before he died in 2013. The Kleiman estate wants at least 300,000 bitcoin and their forked assets but Wright denies that he stole anything and has claimed that he is the only investor of bitcoin. In the latest court filing, the Kleiman estate says that it wants to question Craig Wright’s wife Ramona Watts, the author of the book The Satoshi Affair Andrew O’Hagan and Rober MacGregor who is a business associate of Wright.
The Kleiman estate says that O’Hagan was provided with extensive access to Craig, Watts, and other associates while he was writing the book back in 2016. In that book, Craig claims to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. According to the documents, we can read that:
“During this 6-month process, O’Hagan recorded “many hours of tape” of his “many dozens of hours of conversations with Wright.”
The estate says that Ramona Watts’ testimony is very important because she is Wright’s wife and has been identified in his initial disclosures ‘’as an individual with knowledge of the facts underlying Plaintiffs’ claims.’’ Also, the estate says that Watts and Wright are also involved in companies since 2011 which is when Wright discussed business deals with the deceased Dave Kleiman:
“The Defendant testified that after they were married, they carried on as co-directors of bitcoin-related companies…and the sale of Satoshi Nakamoto’s life rights.”
As noted in the reports in the latest cryptocurrency news, we can read that MacGregor Was also involved because he is the person to whom Wright allegedly sold the Satoshi Nakamoto life rights.
BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes: ‘Traditional Traders Are Under Pressure’
“Some of the practices in our market are going to be mimicked in traditional trading [...] All these things about being somewhere and trading something and physically reconciling records is all going to go out the window. Once you get away from that and understand that everything will be digital in the next 10 years, you realize that Bitcoin isn’t such a strange idea.”It remains to be seen how labor organizations which were crucial in the adoption of weekends, the 40-hour workweek and mandatory break - will respond to the claims of the BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes and especially if his prediction passes. On September 18 and before this, the CEO of BitMEX was in the news for predicting that Bitcoin (BTC) could soon shoot to $20,000 as a result of emergency measures from the United States Federal Reserve. The comments by Hayes came right after the Federal Reserve swooped in and decided to decrease interest rates on some loans which reached more than 10% or four times its target. More than $53 billion was pumped in the economy through the quantitative easing (QE) measures.
“QE4eva is coming. Once the Fed gets religion again, get ready for #bitcoin $20,000,” the BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes tweeted back then.The latest Bitcoin and altcoin news show a new correction on the market. The total market cap is now at $267 billion and Bitcoin is again below $10,100.
Upbit Exchange Delists Privacy Coins Including Monero, Dash and Others
“There are also crypto-assets that can selectively utilize anonymity features among projects that are subject to end of transaction support. For these crypto-asset, Upbit has only supported transparent withdrawal/deposit support. Nevertheless, the decision to end trading support for the crypto-asset was also made to block the possibility of money laundering and inflow from external networks. Upbit will continue to consider crypto-asset that represent anonymity functions as candidates for designation of investment warning crypto-asset.”Now that Upbit exchange decided to delist the privacy coins, the coming altcoin news show that coin prices are starting to drop. According to Messari analytics, the Zcash price dropped over 50% since July 1 joined by Monero, which has been down near 20% over the same period. Still, the exchange delistings and price drops have not necessarily slowed privacy coin tech development. Over the past month, the Electric Coin Company by Zcash released Halo which is the long-awaited zk-SNARK which can verify a single blockchain in one proof.
