(BlockBar) Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed creator of the bitcoin (BTC), allegedly fabricated a court document to prove his trust contract with the plaintiff, as the document revealed by trial attorney Stephen Palley on Twitter on July 3.
According to Palley, Satoshi Nakamoto failed to prove his case by presenting Palley’s allegedly forged court documents because they contained multiple chronological differences.
The nChain chief scientist allegedly mined more than 1.1 million bitcoins with Dave Kleiman between 2009 and 2011. These bitcoins are known as the Tulip Trust. Ella Klein sued on behalf of his brother’s estate, demanding half of the fair market value of these coins, as well as the intellectual property of his brother. Wright used to claim that the Tulip Fund is currently unavailable. In the court documents, according to Wright, the way to access the public address of the mined bitcoin and its associated private key need to be unlocked jointly by Wright himself and the trustees of the Tulip Trust I based on the Sharmir encryption scheme.
Among the documents submitted to the Southern District Court of Florida on July 3, there was a document as proof that Wright had cooperated with the now-dead David Kleiman. Although the trust deed document submitted was ostensibly dated October 23, 2012, the metadata for the file indicates that the file was actually created after Kleiman’s death, as Palley discovered. The trust file apparently uses the 2015 copyright notice associated with Calibri, the Microsoft Word font, which indicates that the document cannot be created before.
After clearly accusing Wright of forging court documents, Palley wrote:
“I mean it makes sense that the inventor of bitcoin can time travel. Your honor.”
As previous mentioned, Craig Wright has faced the possibility of being convicted of contempt of court. He did not follow a court order to disclose a complete list of Bitcoins he held before December 31, 2013.
