Craig Wright Said He Gained Access to 1.1 Million Bitcoins: Details
Craig Wright, an Australian entrepreneur, has notified the court of the receipt of private keys that will allow access to wallets with 1.1 million BTC allegedly obtained by him together with business partner David Kleiman.
Dr. Wright notifies the Court that a third party has provided the necessary information and key slice to unlock the encrypted file, and Dr. Wright has produced a list of his bitcoin holdings, as ordered by the Magistrate Judge, to plaintiffs today, the document states.
A file refers to a document associated with the Tulip Trust, which supposedly contains $ 9.6 billion in cryptocurrency on its accounts.
Against this background, the price of Wright-supported Bitcoin SV cryptocurrency rose above the level of $ 400. At the press time, BSV rolled back to $ 355. The coin gets the fourth position in the CoinMarkerCap ranking.
At the end of December, Wright submitted to the court a letter dated June 2011 and supposedly signed by David Kleiman himself, in which he agrees to return the cryptocurrency to Craig Wright if before that he will still be in the Tulip Trust. To do this, Kleiman supposedly needs to hire a courier who, on January 1, 2020, will give the private keys to the trust's wallets to Wright.
Earlier, the Florida District Court invalidated the decision to recover from Craig Wright half a million bitcoins in favor of the Kleiman family. The judge also ordered the entrepreneur to inform the court about the fate of the mysterious courier before February 3.
