March 15, one of the early bitcoin developer and founder of Bloq Jeff garzik’s (Jeff Garzik) said that he was summoned by the district court of southern Florida to testify in the infamous trial of Ira Kleiman vs Craig Wright.
The family of Kleiman has filed a lawsuit against Wright (self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto), accusing him of misappropriation of 300 000 BTC, and garzik’s was summoned by the court for the submission of documents and possible evidence that may be relevant to the case.
Lawyers Kleiman want Jeff garzik’s revealed everything he knows about Satoshi, David Kleiman and Craig Wright.
Brother of the late David Kleiman, Ira Kleiman believes that Craig Wright David lied and manipulated his assets. Some even believe that David Kleiman, perhaps, was the Creator of Bitcoin. The family of Kleiman argues that Wright must reimburse about 300,000 BTC (1.1 billion US dollars) which belonged to David Kleiman, of the trust, the accounts of which, presumably, is 1 million bitcoins are frozen until 2020.
Now an early supporter and developer of the Bitcoin Jeff garzik’s will participate in the trial because he received a summons to court. On bringing him to testify insisted lawyers Kleimenov, they are asking the garzik’s submit any evidence of the theory that David Kleiman was Satoshi Nakamoto. The garzik’s told about the summons to his Twitter and attached a picture of the second page:
“Here’s the agenda. Came to me in connection with a claim about Bitcoin. To ensure total transparency show you a document that you just received.”
The document also contains questions about whether there is a connection between garzik’s and Wright’s, and whether he had any direct contact with the Kleiman. The plaintiff’s attorney is looking for any papers or letters that have been received from David Kleiman or W & K Info Defense (Kleiman and Richard Wright), as well as information about any contact with a man named Uyen Nguyen. In the document there are issues relating to mining Bitcoin in its first years of existence, Mt. Gox, Silk Road, Liberty Reserve and project Prometheus, and also refers to the cryptographer, Ian Grigg, writer Andrew O Hagan, billionaire Calvin Ayre and Cash Bitcoin advocate Roger Ver.
Personal theory of garzik’s
Wright and his attorneys denied the allegations and stated that Wright Kleiman there was oral agreement that Wright complied.
“Between Dr. Wright and David Kleiman and / or W & K Info Defense Research was not a written agreement of partnership”, — says the lawyer of Wright in response to 36 pages for the charges against his client.
Meanwhile, Wright in his numerous tweets and memoirs, told the audience about how he was involved with the creation of Bitcoin.
As part of a list of questions to garzik’s, which is a 14-page document also refers to an article in Bloomberg that contains “personal theory” of garzik’s about David Kleiman. The garzik’s says:
“My personal theory is that [Satoshi Nakamoto] is Florida Dave Kleiman. This is consistent with his coding style, because this gentleman was self-taught. The Creator of Bitcoin was something very, very smart, but did not receive a classical education engineer-programmer”.
This reckless quote has led to the fact that lawyers Kleiman to believe that garzik’s may know more about the relationship between Wright and Kleiman or know of something that connected David and the late Satoshi Nakamoto.
