Craig Wright Might Lose Half of his Bitcoin Funds to Kleiman Estate

Craig Wright Claims his Bitcoin Inventor

The year long battle between the two supposed brains behind the world largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin(BTC)trade, might have reached its end already. The presiding judge Judge Bruce E. Reinhart, on Tuesday, gave his final ruling on the case, compelling the self-proclaimed Bitcoin founder Craig Wright to give up half of his Bitcoin wealth to his late partner’s estate, David Kleiman.

You will recall that the court already found Wright’s testimony as unreliable following a series of inconsistent evidence and testimonies. I guess it is a no brainer declaring David Kleiman’s estate the winner of the case. According to the judge’s ruling, Mr. Wright will give up half of all his wealth before December 2013, seeing that his partner died in 2013.

In addition to that, the Australian scientist will have to give up half of his intellectual properties before the end of the year 2013. Should his story of being the inventor of Bitcoin turn out true then the court ruling automatically makes Kleiman a part of the Nakamoto pseudonym.

Filed about a year ago, the estate of late David Kleiman believes that the self-proclaimed Bitcoin inventor must have defrauded them of over a million Bitcoins that rightly belong to David Kleiman due to his partnership with Mr. Wright before his death.

Although Mr. Wright has contested the claim from the beginning, he has failed to produce a convincing evidence that his claims are right. In fact, Judge Beth Bloom of the Florida federal court found him ‘not credible’ after several inconsistencies in his testimonies and documents.

While that may mean that his stand in the case is false, it fails to tell exactly if he is the real founder of Bitcoin or by any means related to the pseudonym.

Who Is Satoshi?

From the onset of the case, the people of the crypto sphere and other members of the public have been of hope that the case may finally reveal whether or not Mr. Wright is the Nakamoto we all seek or, as it is much more probable, there is another out there. So far, the court is yet to determine the credibility of the statement.

From the look of things, however, it is pointing to the direction that Wright is most likely not the real Satoshi in spite of his dogged persistence to prove otherwise. But that is not a fact yet. That is a puzzle we will have to wait to uncover with time.

In the meantime, the elusive myth of Satoshi Nakamoto will continue to grow.

Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) daily average bitcoin futures trading up to $ 370 million

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) reported record daily trading volume of bitcoin futures in 2019, indicating a renewed interest in the first cryptocurrency from investors, according to Forbes.

As CME Group Managing Director Tim McCourt noted, the activity of traders has increased significantly compared to August last year.

“Since the beginning of the year, an average of 7,237 bitcoin futures contracts have been signed daily, up 132% on the same period last year,” he said.

The average daily trading volumes of bitcoin futures at the same time amounted to $370 million.

“This is a great time for both bitcoin futures and cryptocurrency assets in general. Investor interest in cryptocurrency is high, and interest in the wider use of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology is also growing. It will be interesting to see how this new market will continue to grow,” McCourt said.

According to him, the CME Group’s main focus is on the educational aspect and providing customers with the tools that they may need to make informed strategic decisions.

Returning to the figures, Tim McCourt recalled that May 2019 was the most successful month for the bitcoin futures market on the CME in the history of the instrument. At that time, an average of 13,600 contracts per day was awarded, which corresponded to a nominal amount of $515 million or 68,000 BTC.

The absolute record was recorded on May 13, when 33,677 contracts totaling 168,000 BTC ($1.3 billion) were signed.

“Our role is to help market participants manage risk regardless of whether the price of bitcoin goes up or down. At the moment, CME Group is pleased with the growth of bitcoin futures,” McCourt added.

Recall, in September it is expected to launch trading bitcoin futures on the Bakkt platform, contracts for which, unlike CME, will be with the physical supply of the asset.

Remittance platform for Venezuela’s Petro ready for use

The Petro goes against the ethos of cryptocurrencies as established by Satoshi Nakamoto, starting with its centralization. The Maduro-led socialist …

The cryptocurrency remittance platform for Venezuela’s national cryptocurrency, the Petro, is now ready for use, a senior government official announced recently. Patria Remesa, as the platform is known allows people to send money from abroad to Venezuela using the embattled Petro crypto.

Joselit Ramírez, the National Superintendent of Cryptoactives in the South American country made the announcement during a recent crypto-themed radio show he hosts for Radio Nacional de Venezuela. “This is the easiest and safest way to send money,” Ramirez stated.

Ramirez further praised the impact of the Petro cryptocurrency on the economy of the country. According to him, Petro is the only currency that protects the household income of the Venezuelans from the effects of economic depreciation. He stated:

The world is evolving, there is a new economic revolution that is coming to continue advancing in the country and contribute to the world economy. The traditional financial system is no longer enough. That’s why cryptocurrencies arrived to open their eyes to the economic world.

While Ramirez is right about cryptocurrencies overhauling the legacy financial system, Petro does little to solve the challenges faced by the Venezuelans. The Petro goes against the ethos of cryptocurrencies as established by Satoshi Nakamoto, starting with its centralization. The Maduro-led socialist government has the sole authority over the supply of the Petro, giving it the ability to use it to further its corrupt regime.

The Venezuelan government has run down the country’s economy and debased the country’s currency. Moreover, the country has been on the receiving end of sanctions from the U.S, Canada, Switzerland, France, the U.K, Australia and very many other governments.

This has made the Petro nothing more than the subject of ridicule the world over, purely viewed as just a cheap escape from international sanctions. Had Maduro been genuine about restoring the economic prosperity of the Venezuelans, he would have turned to a decentralized cryptocurrency that is accepted globally such as Bitcoin SV. With BSV, Venezuelans would have had a crypto that is not only fast and with low fees, but one that is also compliant with international standards.

Despite being a resounding failure, Maduro has continued to push the Petro, instructing the country’s leading bank to accept it last month. During an event held to celebrate Banco de Venezuela’s tenth anniversary, Maduro ordered the bank to open Petro desks in its branches countrywide.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as SegWitCoin BTC coins. Altcoins, which value privacy, anonymity, and distance from government intervention, are referenced as dark coins.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.

Vitalik Buterin Documents List of Fake Claims Made by Craig Wright with Proof

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, is not afraid of ‘calling out frauds.’ Earlier in an open conference, Buterin had called Craig a fraud, which sparked a lot of controversies. Now, he has published a fork on Github titled cult of CSW.

Betmatch

In the report, he has compiled a list of proof of fake claims, including the findings by other people. The report also includes details of a deleted Linkedin account which throws light on Craig’s past involvements compared to his statements.

In one of the links, Andrew O’Hagan, London Review of Books editor, cites how, when, and why the claims started. He writes about “writes about how Craig Wright was paid $15M to claim he was Satoshi to escape financial difficulties.”

Craig’s Bizarre Dilemma

The Judge of the Federal Court found Wright to be ‘serial forger’ in a recent case. Many of his submissions were found to be false. Hence, the judge decided against his and granted damages to the plaintiff.

CryptoMarketapp

The result of the case between self-acclaimed Satoshi, Craig Wright, and Dave Klieman sought to put an end to the debate. However, it apparently put Wright in a bizarre situation.

He now has to pay half of his Bitcoin holdings and Intellectual Property to the Klieman estate. Satoshi had mined 1 million Bitcoins. Hence, if Craig’s claims are valid, he had to share the fortune with Dave Klieman, whom he now recognizes as part of Satoshi. 500k Bitcoins amount to about $5 billion at current prices.

Nevertheless, Wright has claimed that the funds are locked until 2020 by some kind of timed encryption. Moreover, crypto-twitter is overwhelmed by the coup Craig has put himself into. Some suggest that Craig will have to pay $6 billion from his own wealth unrelated to Satoshi’s Bitcoins just to keep his claims alive.

In the past, to gain attention from media, Wright has also lied about owning MtGox Bitcoins. Craig Wright seems to have surrounded himself by controversies all around. While he still claims, that “it is not ever yet,” a mountain of proofs and testimonies leaves very little room for doubt.

Do you think that the ‘faketoshi’ claims will come to an end after this? Please share your views with us.
