Craig Steven Wright, who is known in the crypto world as the man who’s claimed to be Bitcoin’s anonymous creator several times is finally running out excuses to be famous and controversial. This has come down to his showdown in the $10 billion Dave Kleiman lawsuit settlement.
A document from a Florida Federal Court was submitted yesterday in which they have requested for an extension in every deadline that is given to them as they wish to begin settlement talks. The request for a 30-day extension on all deadlines, including the trial setting, would enable both parties to reach a final settlement agreement is the best decision for both the parties.
Wright has been a notorious element in the cryptocurrency world, and two simultaneous investigations by Wired and Gizmodo claimed that Wright could have invented the Bitcoin, but his legitimacy was questioned.
The Kleiman’s state lawsuit started in February 2018, when Dave’s brother Ira filed a lawsuit against Wright for the rights over a significant stash of Bitcoins. Ira argued that dave’s Bitcoin stash and his property rights were taken over by Wright because of a fraudulent scheme. Ira is suing Wright for half the Bitcoins Wright and Kleiman mined from 2009 to 2011.
The mystery of Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity remains unsolved, but the good thing is that finally, the Wright and Kleiman state case may come to an agreement and end.
