Kleiman’s Lawyers Present New Evidence of Craig Wright’s “Counterfeiting”

May 28, 2020

The Kleiman heirs’ legal team presented evidence this week that he did not control the 145 addresses claimed by Craig Wright.

They submitted complementary evidence this morning to support their application for sanctions against Wright, and added to their long list of complaints that he claims to be Satoshi.

They said the new evidence further proves that the “list submitted by CSW” is not a list of Wright’s public Bitcoin addresses.It is an “intentional forgery” by him.

Kleiman’s heirs sue Wright for the bitcoins he allegedly mined in collaboration with the late Dave Kleiman.

“Liar and Fraud”

On May 24, 2020, an unknown actor released a message that was signed with the private keys of the addresses provided by CSW on the list:

“Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a cheater, he doesn’t have the keys to sign this message … we’re all Satoshi.”

All coins in the directions were mined between May 10, 2009 and January 10, 2010, each with the original 50 BTC block reward, This adds up to a total of $ 64 million.

The plaintiffs cited the testimony of Bitcoin expert Andreas Antonopoulos, of what “You can only sign a message if you have the private keys for those addresses.”

Wrong list? No

Bitcoin SV (BSV) supporters believe the message comes from former Bitcoin developer Greg Maxwellwho claim they have revenge on Wright.

The benefactor of the BSV billionaire, Calvin Ayre, claimed that the addresses were not on the official, sealed, and definitive list:

“He presented a preliminary list of all possible addresses that could be his and that are public … and when he was certain of it, he presented it to the court, but it was sealed so that it was not public. None of the blocks, that was Maxwell and other fraudsters are attacking Craig, they’re on the current sealed list. “

However, as the plaintiffs’ addendum shows, the list submitted by CSW was “accidentally” placed in the public file.This gives you access to the unknown actor and the 145 addresses contained therein.

The application contains a detailed footnoteallegedly, if the court found this “mistake” too easy to be credible.

Wright has the keys

The plaintiffs had previously argued that the list was “a forgery intended to deceive the plaintiffs and this court and that Wright had created them to avoid sanctions under that court’s order”.

You said the new evidence shows that This list “is not an accurate list of Wrights Bitcoin, and it still obscures the true list of plaintiffs and the court.”

Simply put, Wright presented that these 145 addresses were part of its Bitcoin fund and were contained in an inaccessible encrypted file. This week the person who actually controls the private keys to these addresses used those private keys … which proves that the addresses are not Wright’s “

While the new evidence has been used once and for all by Twitter as evidence that Wright is not a Satoshi.That is not the position of the Kleiman team.

They still believe that he has access to significant BTC wealth and are demanding part of it based on Wright’s alleged connection to Dave Kleiman in the BTC mining industry.. Last week they argued that Wright has access to the BTC funds in question.

Change of action

Despite Antonopoulos’ evidence that the person who signed the message had access to the private keyDecrypt today quoted Bitcoin developer Rene Pickhardt as saying that it is still possible that the addresses have been violated:

“Of course, security could have been compromised and signatures could only be created for this particular message, not for possible money transfers.”
