The Bitcoin SV founder Craig Wright reportedly submitted fake bitcoin addresses as evidence in the case against Ira Kleiman. The legal representative of Kleiman filed a document with the court where he demands sanctions against Mr. Wright for statements made about the Tulip Trust courier so let’s find out in today’s Bitcoin SV news.
Ira Kleiman’s legal representative filed a document with the Southern District Court of Florida seeking sanctions against the Bitcoin SV founder and self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto. The document was filed two days ago in compliance with the schedule that was set by Judge Beth Bloom.
Both parties were informed previously that any pre-trial motions will have to be filed until May 8, 2020, but the new document demands a 10-day delay to file the motion for sanctions. Kleiman’s legal representative claims that they will be introducing the document out of precaution and ‘’abundance of caution.’’ Ira Kleiman demands sanctions because:
‘’Plaintiffs intend to file a sanctions motion based on Defendant’s conduct in these proceedings. This motion will include, but not be limited to, the Defendant’s provision of a false notice and false list of bitcoin addresses in response to this Court’s order allowing him ‘through and including February 3, 2020, to file a notice with the Court indicating whether or not this mysterious figure has appeared from the shadows and whether the Defendant now has access to the last key slice needed to unlock the encrypted file.’’
The courier’s identity was one of the burning topics within the crypto community at the start of the year. The courier was supposed to bring the keys that will unlock the rest of the funds of Bitcoin’s creator. However, it was revealed that the courier was Wright’s lawyer which disappointed many in the community. At the start of the trial, Ira accused Wright of stealing intellectual property from his brother Dave Kleiman. Dave and Kleiman mined Bitcoin together and eventually, Wright stole Dave’s mined funds or about 500,000 in BTC.
Wright claims to be the inventor of Bitcoin so he had to provide real evidence of the funds. he also claimed that after inventing the cryptocurrency, the BTC funds went to a referred trust but he was unable to present evidence to support his claims.
