Bitcoin Creator Craig Wright 100% Satoshi Nakamoto Says Miami Jury: Responds to Verdict (LIVE STREAM)

It's official!  Dr. Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto, founder of Bitcoin!!!

A Miami jury arrived at that decision late Monday morning after mulling over extensive documentation presented during the so-called "Trial of the Century".

Let's repeat: The verdict is in and we now know that Dr. Craig Wright was the sole force behind the Satoshi Nakamoto partnership. Dave Kleiman was not a partner, and his estate is entitled to none of the multi-billion-dollar Satoshi fortune.

Wright is currently backing Bitcoin Satoshi Vision, for which he claims operates as his creation was intended.  The price of Bitcoin SV jumped from $118 to $136 on the news, however, this is yet to hit the mainstream media. 

"I feel completely vindicated," Wright said in a statement immediately following the verdict in his favor.  "My original invention is coming back."

Jordan Atkins of our partners at CoinGeek breaks it down in a nutshell:

The Kleiman v Wright jury today returned in favor of Dr. Craig Wright on all but one of the seven counts against him—conversion. The jury found for the plaintiff on that count, but only to the extent that it applies to W&K Info Defense Research LLC, the company which Ira was purporting to use to sue Dr. Wright. This means that though the jury found that Dave Kleiman played no role in the Satoshi Nakamoto project, Dr. Wright had wrongfully exercised control over the property of W&K. For this, they awarded $100 million to W&K—and not the estate of Dave Kleiman.

However, it’s not even entirely clear who owns W&K or if Ira Kleiman was even entitled to sue Dr. Wright on behalf of it. This is likely to be highly problematic for Ira Kleiman, who no doubt was hoping for a payday from Satoshi Nakamoto. Instead, he’ll have to explain to another court how he purported to sue Dr. Wright on behalf of W&K in the first place, considering it appears to be owned and controlled by none other than Lynn Wright, Wright’s estranged ex-wife.

UK Rejects Proposal to Regulate Crypto Like Gambling

"A system of gambling regulation, in isolation, would be unlikely to address these risk factors. It would also not be equipped to deal with insider dealing, market manipulation, predatory short selling and many other behaviours which can manifest themselves in both cryptoasset markets as well as traditional financial services markets."
