1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ sued for swindling $5 billion in bitcoin on: February 27, 2018, 10:26:08 AM
On top of Satoshi Nakamoto starting CPU wars between miners and designing a system that won't scale we also have
a little bit of fraud to throw in too.

The lawsuit is being brought by Kleiman’s brother (Ira Kleiman), who accused Wright of using phony contracts and signatures to lay claim to bitcoins mined by Dave.

“Craig forged a series of contracts that purported to transfer Dave's assets to Craig and/or companies controlled by him. Craig backdated these contracts and forged Dave's signature on them,” Ira Kleiman said, according to the complaint.

The plaintiffs seek the return of the bitcoins, which would now be worth over $10 billion. The lawsuit said the uncertain state of those bitcoins was related to Wright’s well-publicized tax issues, which caused his home to be raided by Australian police.

I got wise when fees hot $55 per transaction and did a lot of research into the Lightning network and soon
discovered it was a system of banker hubs but many people here still won't take the warning.
