The Court Ordered Craig Wright to Provide a List of Bitcoin Addresses that Belong to Him


The Federal Court for the Southern District of Florida ordered Craig Wright to provide a list of public Bitcoin addresses.

Recall that in a lawsuit filed in February last year on behalf of Dave Kleiman, it is claimed that Wright stole Bitcoins worth more than $5 billion at the current rate.

The issued ruling contains a number of claimants ’claims, which asked the court to oblige Wright to provide a list of Bitcoin’s public addresses belonging to him as of December 31, 2013, to identify Bitcoins allegedly transferred under anonymous trust management in 2011, and also to provide documents related to by this trust. In addition, the plaintiffs asked the court to oblige Wright to establish on oath the identity of the current and past trustees and beneficiaries of the trust. 

The document states that the court revised its ruling on a previously submitted request from Wright, whose goal was to hide information relating to his assets in Bitcoin. In addition to rejecting Wright’s petition, the ruling says:

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

In December last year, the court rejected a request to dismiss the case against Craig Wright.
