The owner of 145 addresses with bitcoins, mined in 2009, accused Craig Wright of fraud. In court, Wright claimed that he owned these addresses, but lost access to them.

Earlier, Craig Wright (Craig Wright) claimed that he was Satoshi Nakamoto, and the addresses where 1.1 million BTC are located belonged to him. Wright allegedly namain them with his partner David Kleiman (David Kleiman). He provided the court with a list of these addresses in January, claiming that he did not have access to them because they were under the control of the Tulip Trust.

Wright declined to say where he got the list of addresses, citing confidential information obtained from his lawyer. From these addresses, which have remained inactive since 2009, and a message was sent that Craig Wright is not who he claims to be.

"Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. It does not own the keys that were used to sign this message. Lightning Network is a significant achievement. However, we need to continue working on increasing network capacity. Unfortunately, this solution can't be implemented just by changing the code or allowing large participants to displace others. We are all Satoshi."

Wright's hearing against Dave Kleiman will take place on July 6, so Wright is likely to lose it. It became obvious that Wright was trying to play with the court, talking about a "mysterious courier" who allegedly had to give him all the necessary data. There is speculation that this message could have been sent by Satoshi Nakamoto himself, since its wording is similar to a message sent in 2015 from Satoshi's email address: "I Am not Craig Wright. We are all Satoshi."

It sounds like a coincidence, but last week, bitcoins at one of the early addresses started to move. This transaction made a lot of noise in the cryptocurrency community, as many began to think that Satoshi Nakamoto decided to move his bitcoins. However, given that the transaction could have been made by one of the enthusiasts who mined bitcoin immediately after its launch, this message could have been sent by any of the first miners.
