Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Australian as the founder of Bitcoin, is sued in court where $ 10 billion is required from his former business partner's family.

The lawsuit, reported by the Motherboard, says Wright had excavated cryptographic coins along with Dave Kleiman, a programmer who died in 2013

It is said that Wright had orchestrated a scheme to take control of Kleiman's bitcoins. His attorney's lawyer, Ira's brother, admits that the number of bitcoins for which there is a mystery remains but he believes it is between 300,000 and 1,1 million.

The lawsuit filed in Florida two weeks ago says that year when Kleiman died, his family was unaware of his involvement in creating bitcoin.

The lawsuit says it is not known whether bitcoin was created by Craig, Dave, of either or none. However it is undeniable that Craig and David have been involved in bitcoin since its creation and both have accumulated great wealth from 2009 to 2013.

By 2015, Craig Wright was an unknown figure, even within the community of bitcoin. But that year he was investigated by the Australian fiscal authorities for involvement in bitcoin, causing controversy that he might be Satoshi Nakamato, the alleged bitcoin creator.

In 2016 he came out publicly saying it was Nakamoto. But experts have questioned the evidence he has presented. He promised to further prove his identity as Satoshi Nakamoto but withdrew. Since then, there has been a central figure for the bitcoin community.
