Australian entrepreneur and computer scientist Craig Wright has been sued by Dave Kleinman’s estate for allegedly stealing between 550 thousand and 1 million bitcoins.
Craig Wright and Dave Kleiman
In 2015, the Australian computer scientist and businessman, Craig Wright, publicly announced that he was Satoshi Nakamoto, the famous creator of the Bitcoin decentralized cryptocurrency. Many people from the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency community were skeptical about Wright’s claims and demanded further proof.
Wright and Kleiman created a cybersecurity company, W&K Info Defense Research LLC, back in 2011. They also, allegedly, worked together before that on developing Bitcoin and mining it. It’s these mined bitcoins that lie at the heart of the lawsuit.
