Serial Forger in Kleiman vs Wright Trial

A verdict in the Ira Kleiman vs. Craig Wright trial is due any day starting Monday.  At stake, a Miami jury will decide the legal owner of nearly $69 billion in Bitcoin as well as the legal identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, author of the Bitcoin white paper.  Ira Kleiman's is the brother of a man Wright claims worked with him on the creation of Bitcoin.  Dave Kleiman passed away in 2014.

Additionally there are multiple counts that must be decided by the jury.  The case closed for deliberations late Tuesday but has halted for the remainder of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

A common theme surfacing during the trial revolved around possible "forged" documents with the plaintiffs attorneys pointing the finger at Dr. Wright.

An expert witness Dr. Matthew Edman testified for the plaintiffs that 40 or so emails he reviewed had been forged.

Jordan Atkins of CoinGeek notes that these allegations of forgery perpatrated by Wright have been going on long prior to the trial and come as little surprise.

Usually, it comes up in the form of indignant bleating from the people who have already decided (or been paid to decide) that Dr. Craig Wright couldn’t possibly be behind the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym. After all, if you can get enough people to write a person off as a serial forger, you can make sure they are never taken seriously again.

That is perhaps the reason for the seemingly immortal claim that if there are any forgeries connected to Wright, it must be Wright who is responsible for them. Who else would have the motive to alter and forge documents? Right?

Interestingly enough the precise location and time of some of the forgeries were determined per Edman's testimony.  Wright was living and working 10 hours away from the orgination location.

Furthermore, an email presented by the plaintiffs claiming to have been sent from one of Wright’s well-known domains ( in 2008 was in actuality sent in 2015 and its authenticity has now come into question. 

It should be mentioned that this particular email was conspicuously left off the list of documents sent to Edman by the plaintiff’s lawyers for analysis, Atkins points out.

How the BSV Blockchain is Revolutionizing Industries: Giving Thanks This Holiday Season

Stephanie Tower talks to Marcel Gruber of CATN8, the 3rd Place winner of the recently-held BSV Hackathon. Gruber explains how CATN8 is a smart video player that can support a rich experience. It is a fusion of video and whatever the user wants it to be.

Content creators and users can get paid as simply as clicking a part of the video being shown. The project focuses in ‘bitcoinizing’ experience online, especially more on video.

Gruber also explains how he would like to spearhead and allow the use of CATN8 as soon as possible. The group is looking at collaborating with some businesses in the industry such as TonicPow and HandCash, which allow payments to be made by just simply clicking on content.

“I am so grateful to the Bitcoin Association, to Calvin, and it has been a lot of fun,” Gruber says.

There there actor Adrian Grenier who must of us know as Vincent "Vincy" Chase of Entourage or Nick Brewer of Netflix thriller Clickbait.

NewYork attendees lucked out as they met celebrity Grenier and got a first hand look at some of the actor's environmentally conscious projects?

On the sidelines of the event, the actor and UN Environment Program goodwill ambassador told CoinGeek Backstage: “To build anything, I want to use money as a tool, so I started looking at finance as a way to positively impact the environment by actually investing in businesses that will improve our experience on the planet. I started looking at money itself and the store of value, and crypto comes along—it creates more transparency, equity, and access to the world’s wealth.”

And finally, to our friends in the i-Gaming sector, Brandon Bryant of HandCash discusses making payments seamless for digital goods users.

A Software Engineer for HandCash and Adjunct Professor at the University of New Hampshire, Bryant discusses his experience in introducing and teaching about Bitcoin and how blockchain works. He mentions about real-use cases after Bitcoin evolved in around four years, and bring in companies through video-conferencing.

Focusing more on the economic benefits, he talks about how BSV is a stable technology for HandCash. He also talks about his role in HandCash, a wallet for Bitcoin SV started by two entrepreneurs from Spain.

It connects different games and platforms, making users bring their digital goods and money wherever they go. This would make the process seamless within the ecosystem.

A public service announcement from your friends at Gambling911: Use a separate wallet when transferring Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to and from online gambling websites.  DO NOT TRANSFER FUNDS DIRECTLY TO AND FROM THE EXCHANGE ITSELF.  Contrary to what you may have read, the exchange addresses are NOT anonymous, they are traceable.  Exchanges make it abundantly clear they prohibit direct payments to and from gambling websites. Hence, the importance of using an intermediary wallet such as HandCash.
