U.Today reminds its readers that Wright was accused of stealing up 1.1 mln BTC that he mined together with cryptocurrency developer Dave Kleiman who died in 2013. His crypto fortune is allegedly stored in ‘the Tulip Trust.’

Kleiman’s estate took the self-proclaimed Satoshi to court, demanding billions of dollars worth of crypto from the nChain chief scientist.
