Court Ordered Craig Wright To Provide Information About Blind Trust And Bitcoin Assets

The US District Court for the Southern District of Florida issued an order requiring Craig WRIGHT, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, to submit a list of his public Bitcoin addresses.

The document also states that the court revised its previous order at the request of Wright to seal information relating to his Bitcoin assets. In addition to denying Wright’s motion, the order says:

“On or before May 15, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, Dr. Wright shall produce all transactional records of the blind trust, including but not limited to any records reflecting the transfer of bitcoin into the blind trust in or about 2011. The production shall be accompanied by a sworn declaration of authenticity.”

The order is part of the Wright lawsuit filed by the computer scientist David KLEIMAN. He claims that Wright stole hundreds of thousands of BTC. The plaintiff asked the court to order Wright to compile a list of public Bitcoin addresses that he owned as of December 31, 2013, and to make him identify all Bitcoin transfers to a blind trust in 2011, and to submit documents related to the said trust. In addition, the plaintiffs also ask the court to order Wright under oath to reveal the identities of the current and past trustees and beneficiaries of the trust.
