A letter stating that he was the creator of the first cryptocurrency, Guido sent July 22 to the federal court in Florida, where the consideration of the case of Kleiman v. Craig Wright continues.
The list of contenders for the status of the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto replenished with another person. They became the Belgian Debo Juergen Etienne Guido.
According to Wright, together with Dave Kleiman, who died in 2013, they created Bitcoin, were among the first miners who collectively mined over 1 million BTC, and also invented other innovations, the list of which changed over time. Relatives of the deceased David Kleiman sued Craig Wright, who also claims to be the creator of Bitcoin, in February 2018.
David Kleiman’s brother, however, claims that Craig Wright unlawfully deprived the family of computer forensic intellectual property rights of W & K Information Defense through an Australian court, and demands that the share due to his brother be given to him. They allegedly placed their solid Bitcoin-capital in a blind trust called Tulip Trust back in 2011, and access to it is supposedly possible only with the consent of all parties who participated in the threshold Shamir cryptographic scheme.
