Remember the Australian scientist who claims he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the man who created Bitcoin? He has now launched a Sh600 billion ($5.6) billion lawsuit in a London high court to retrieve 111,000 Bitcoins, further asserting that he’s the inventor of the cryptocurrency.
Craig Steven Wright filed the case against 16 developers who were behind crypto networks Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV), Bitcoin Core (BTC), Bitcoin Cash, (BCH), and Bitcoin Cash ABC (ABC).
Several defendants have dismissed the case saying it’s “bogus,” adding that Wright hasn’t proven that he indeed created one of the world’s most popular cryptocurrencies.
Wright is currently involved in several court cases that could help prove or disprove his claim to be Satoshi. He has also registered for U.S. copyright for the white paper and early computer code underlying Bitcoin.
Craig is also involved in another court case where he alleges he lost his encrypted keys when his home computer network was hacked in February 2020.
