Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin, said in a lawsuit filed against crypto personality Hodlonaut (real name Magnus Granath). He deliberately stomped on the hard drive containing the private key information of Satoshi Nakamoto’s wallet, which made it extremely difficult to prove cryptographically that he was the creator of Bitcoin .
He claimed in a Norwegian court that destroying the hard drive was the only way to avoid being forced to identify himself in this way, and he wanted to identify him as Satoshi Nakamoto by traditional means such as academic achievements, if not people would end up forcing me to do it Things I don’t want to do.
It is reported that Hodlonaut has been opposed and doubted that Craig Wright claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto. Craig Wright is suing Hodlonaut for alleged defamation.
Earlier on August 1, the judge awarded only nominal damages of £1 to Craig Wright for giving false evidence in his defamation case against Peter McCormack.
