Craig Wright is Satoshi, word of Calvin Ayre

Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto and he will prove it. This is what Calvin Ayre, entrepreneur and committed supporter of Bitcoin SV, is convinced of. 

He said so in a tweet commenting on the latest development in the never-ending cause between Craig Wright and Ira Kleiman, brother of the deceased Dave Kleiman, Wright’s former partner. 

“Now this goes to court and Craig will win no matter what the outcome of the case as it will establish to more that he is Satoshi and free up his portion of the Satoshi Bitcoin”.

This is not surprising. After all, when Craig Wright publicly revealed that he was the inventor of Bitcoin, he also added that the Canadian entrepreneur was also involved in the creation of the queen of cryptocurrencies.

The accusations of being faketoshi didn’t hurt the pride of Ayre, who is certain that sooner or later Craig Wright will demonstrate his truth.

Surely so far it hasn’t worked out so well for him. 

Craig Wright, Satoshi’s identity and the case against Ira Kleiman

In fact, the keystone of the litigation that sees him opposed to Dave Kleiman’s family lies precisely in the fortune contained in the so-called Tulip Trust, a series of addresses where the Bitcoin mined at the beginning of the blockchain would be deposited. 

This is a multi-million euro fortune. Throughout the course of the lawsuit, Craig Wright allegedly provided the private keys that gave access to this treasure, except that they were later found invalid.

What is certain is that some of those addresses have recently been sending out messages saying:

“Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He doesn’t have the keys used to sign this message”.

This is enough to prove that he does not hold the private keys to those addresses. 

Anyway, the case against Ira Kleiman continues. The judges have rejected the request of Kleiman’s opponents to dismiss the case. Now a jury will have to deal with this dispute by establishing once and for all whether Kleiman’s family is entitled to the fortune in Bitcoin. 

And perhaps it will be a judge to say once and for all that Craig Wright is not (or is) Satoshi Nakamoto
