Craig Wright disproves Tulip Trust’s manufacture

June 4, 2020

Craig Wright claims that only he has access to “Satoshi” Bitcoin addresses that are deposited in court, despite the fact that a message that was apparently signed by 145 of the addresses referred to it as “kidding and cheating”.

Wright says that anyone who thinks their credibility is currently in Ruinen “doesn’t understand anything about digital signatures”.

He is being sued for the estate of his alleged former business partner Dave Kleimanwho is looking for a billion dollar share of Bitcoin (BTC) that the couple may or may not have mined together.

As part of the case, Wright presented a list of the first Bitcoin addresses that he claims are his. The On May 24, an unknown actor released a message signed with the private keys of 145 addresses from the file list. This was confiscated by the Kleiman agency to indicate that the entire list was fake.

But in an interview with Patrick McLain on the YouTube channel REIMAGINE 2020 on June 3 Wright said, “No message was signed,” and refuted the idea that anyone could sign such a message anonymously.::

“In this case, an identity attribute or identity must be present to sign. Not everyone can say, “Hey, I have a password, here is my signature.” If you believe that, you don’t understand anything about digital signatures. “

Wright said since the May 24th message did not contain a signature, “You cannot have an anonymous signature … This is not a message signature“”

The fearsome defense of Pirate Roberts

Kleiman’s team argued that the list Wright submitted to the court was a fake.citing the bitcoin educator Andreas Antonopoulos in his legal request that no message like that of May 24 could be signed without a private key.

Wright disproved this directly with McLain.The lawsuit is the same as Antonopoulos’ defense of Ross Ulbricht in the case of the Silk Road.

Bitcoin developers last week René Pickhardt said it is possible that the companies could be exploited: “Of course, security could be compromised and signatures could only be created for this particular message, not for potential money transfers

Twists and turns

The addresses submitted to the courtwho mined Bitcoin between May 10, 2009 and January 10, 2010, have been scrutinized since court documents leaked. On May 20, an unknown person transferred BTC worth $ 486,000 from one of Wright’s addresses.

The case between Wright and Kleiman is still ongoing;; A trial in the southern Florida district is scheduled for July 6.
