Judge tells inventor of Bitcoins to hand over 5 billion dollars worth, man says he can't because he is waiting for a time traveler to bring the e
The man who claims to have invented Bitcoin has been ordered by a Florida court to hand over half of his stash of the cyber-money, worth an estimated $5bn, to the estate of his dead business partner.

There’s only one problem: Craig Wright claims that he isn’t able to do so because he doesn’t have access to it. Instead, he told the US court, he must wait for a courier from the future who will give him the necessary code to access the coins in January 2020.

Craig Wright is no stranger to grand and bizarre claims, having told numerous media outlets back in 2016 that he was Satoshi Nakamoto, the secretive creator of the currency. He repeatedly promised to provide proof but it never arrived, with Wright finally claiming that he did "not have the courage" to do what he said repeatedly he was going to do.

That history may have played some role in the judge’s decision [PDF] to disregard Wright’s plot device from the Back to the Future franchise and state that “there is clear and convincing evidence that Dr Wright’s non-compliance with the court’s orders is willful and in bad faith.”

That wasn’t all. Judge Bruce Reinhart added that Wright had engaged in a “willful and bad faith pattern of obstructive behavior,” had filed “incomplete or deceptive pleadings,” and had both perjured himself and made a false declaration.

In ordering Wright to hand over half his Bitcoins – again, worth an estimated $5bn – the judge explained that “given the extended pattern of non-compliance and its egregiousness a lesser sanction is not adequate to punish or to ensure future compliance with the court’s orders.”
the trust.

During the course of the lawsuit it has become clear that neither Kleiman’s estate, represented by his brother, or the judge believe a word of what Wright has said. And the blind trust thing turns out that it is even more complicated than that. The only way Wright will be able to decrypt the file, he claims, will be when he gets access to the key from a courier who will arrive in January 2020.

I don't really see how there can be anyone coming to our time from the future.

It's quite apparent that the world has no future and that humans will likely go extinct within the next decade or two.

Not at all surprising. Craig Wright is not Satoshi and the judge is tired of the lies and delays and forgeries Wright provided as "proof" he is Satoshi. What he did do, according to the court, is steal about 1 million BTC from a dead man, and the dead man's family sued him. They won, as they should have. They won't get their BTC though. He either doesn't have it or he's already converted it into his trash coin BTCSV.

The time traveller thing is just proof this guy is a nutter

When in trouble, always play stupid or crazy.

People get taken down because they think they can outsmart everyone and they cannot help show off how smart they are.

This guy, he is likely outsmarting them the correct way. He can't get away with playing dumb and when you cannot then your next best option is playing crazy.

Well, my exhusband told the judge that he was held for two days of questioning by South Korea because they were afraid that I was going to interrupt the winter Olympics from Alaska and she ruled in his favor.
