Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright, in accordance with the court order, provided a list of Bitcoin addresses in order to confirm what was hiding under the pseudonym of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto in the framework of the current trial with the Kleiman family.

From the publicly available version of the document, all the information about Wright’s addresses was excluded, but WizSec, based on a discussion with Bitcoin Core developer Greg Maxwell and the metadata of the original PDF file, including links to 45 addresses from the list, concluded that Wright is trying to enter Court of delusion.

“What Wright does provide appears to be just a lazy copy-paste from the blockchain, without any cryptographic signatures to support his claims of ownership. It beggars belief, to say the least, for the self-proclaimed inventor of Bitcoin to act so ignorant about the fundamentals of his invention. Perhaps Wright thinks that being a bitcoin miner means pointing at bitcoins and yelling “Mine!”?”, WizSec writes.

The court document says that Bitcoin addresses are not meant to be memorized for nearly a decade. However, Dr. Wright knows that he has added the first 70 blocks to the blockchain, and can determine the public addresses associated with them, which are listed below.

“Dr. Wright does not have a complete list of the public addresses that he owned as of any date. ”

As WizSec notes, in a similar way, Wright could have acted when the court asked him to prepare a list of addresses belonging to the trust company, whose assets were the subject of litigation with the Kleimans. Wright allegedly collected information about the largest Bitcoin holders and handed it over to the court without bothering to provide any cryptographic evidence of their affiliation.
