A Man Who Claims to have Created Bitcoin has Won a $55 Billion Lawsuit.

One of the biggest mysteries of our time was almost solved in a Florida state court in the United States. Everyone knows that the inventor of bitcoin is named Satoshi Nakamoto, but no one knows who is behind this fictitious name. Well, five years ago, Craig Wright, a programmer from Australia claimed that Satoshi Nakamoto was him. For the past three years, many people have been following the trial, waiting for the Court to lift the veil of secrecy – many were waiting for the trial to reveal whether Craig Wright was really behind the creation of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency.

Craig Wright said five years ago that it was he who created bitcoin. Not many people believed him at the time. In 2018, however, the situation became more interesting. Craig was sued by the brother of the late David Kleiman. According to relatives, Wright and Kleiman had worked together on bitcoin, but then Craig allegedly pushed his partner away from the project.

Kleiman’s relative demanded 550,000 bitcoins from the defendant as compensation, which to date exceeds $25 billion. Plus more than $100 billion more as compensation for intellectual property infringement.

A computer scientist from Australia, who claims that it was he who invented bitcoin, won a lawsuit for the sum of 1.1 million cryptocurrencies. At today’s exchange rate, that’s over $55 billion.

In a lawsuit between Australian-born Craig Wright and his former business partner Dave Clayman, a Florida jury sided with Wright and acquitted him of fraud charges. At stake was half of the late Clayman’s 1.1 million bitcoins fortune.

So what about Satoshi Nakamoto, the most intriguing part is! During the trial, there was no more certainty regarding the cryptocurrency author. Wright admitted that he was friends with Kleiman, who allegedly helped him edit the bitcoin white paper. However, they were not business partners. At any rate, David’s brother failed to prove otherwise.

Therefore, the jury decided that Craig Wright did not have to pay billions of dollars. In this case, the jury did not even try to find out whether the defendant was the creator of the cryptocurrency.
