The case of the Winklevoss Twins and Charlie Shrem which we have covered many times in our crypto news achieved another twist when the New Your District Court decided that the twins should pay Shrem $45,000 in legal fees as part of the still ongoing lawsuit.
The court ruled in favor of Shrem after he filed a motion to retrace his legal fees. However, the twins asked from the court not to grant the motion for Shrem saying that he was only charged a minimum amount. The court rejected the claims and the ruling further reads:
“…plaintiff is liable ‘for all costs and damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees’ where the plaintiff is granted an attachment and later found unentitled to that attachment.”
Shrem was jailed for money laundering after he laundered more than $1 million in Bitcoin through the now inoperative bank Silk Road and was sued by the twins who accused him of stealing about 5,000 bitcoin in 2012. They claimed that Shrem has spent the tokens which now would have achieved a price of $17 million.
Winklevoss noticed that after the partnership with Shrem, he had not delivered the cryptocurrencies as he promised. This is why they decided to try and recover the missing funds and bury the hatchet and even ended up investing in Shrem’s crypto exchange Bitinstant. However, a few months later, Shrem’s exchange fell apart and he went to prison but when he came out, he was insanely rich.
This is when the twins started their legal proceeding and tried to get the tokens that Shrem owned them. The battle started in 2012 and has ended just a few days ago. Shrem, of course, denied all allegations.
Neil Bush Was Paid $300,000 By One Coin’s Founder Ruja Ignatova
“This isn’t just: ‘We saw the name Bush on a transaction and cut a subpoena.’’The investor Neil Bush was contacted by the FBI agents investigating the scheme since he is the board member at Hoifu Energy which is a company owned by the Chinese businessman Dr. Hui Chi Ming and the company was involved in a $60 million loan deal that was financed in cash and by OneCoin, strangely enough. If Bush testifies about his role would only prove that the deal was not eh scam that the government claims to be. Garvin read about the FBI interview with Neil Bush and spoke about the meeting that took place in Hong Kong which is where the Hoify Energy is located. The investor was about to profit from the oil deal and as per the FBI report we can see that:
‘’Bush recalled that the head of Hoifu Energy, Dr. Hui Chi Ming, received a bunch of cryptocurrency for an oil deal in Madagascar. Bush had a residual interest in the cryptocurrency from the oil deal. Bush met the woman from the cryptocurrency company, Ruja Ignatova, in Hong Kong with Dr. Hui.’’
Craig Wright Fails To Pay Settlement In Kleiman’s Case
“Either I am Satoshi or Satoshi plagiarized me. You can make the choice, I don’t really care because he actually took whole paragraphs from my LOM. So it’s either me or… I don’t really care if you like it’’
The Real Satoshi Nakamoto To Be Revealed By John McAfee
‘’I protected the identity of Satoshi. It's time, though, that this be put to bed. Imposters claim to be him, we are spending time and energy in search of him - It's a waste. Every day I will narrow down the identity of Satoshi until he reveals himself, or I reveal him.’’One of the reasons why the bitcoin price was fluctuating and got so many people interested in it’s because of the anonymity of the real Satoshi Nakamoto. The creator of the cryptocurrency is still unknown despite many traders, analysts or businessmen claim to be him. It appears that Craig Wright is claiming to be the creator of BTC for quite some time now. McAfee is getting frustrated as we can see so he wants the truth to come out. People around the world are wondering if McAfee does really know the identity of the real Satoshi Nakamoto because of his background. Many are concerned that this kind of news could affect the price of the cryptocurrency to tumble down. This can also be one of the conspiracy theories as we have previously reported in our altcoin news. The reason why this story is important is that the success of Bitcoin cannot be attributed to a single person yet. The story about the identity of the real Satoshi Nakamoto was centered on his/hers wallet. There are thousands of BTC coins still untouched and if we get to see some action in the wallet, this could be one of the solid proofs for the founder to communicate with the rest of the crypto community. This, of course, has not happened yet. John McAfee is known to stir a lot of attention around him. He got the attention once when he said he would run for a president. However, he has now launched a countdown so we are yet to see if he was serious or just playing.
