Court Orders ‘Bitcoin Inventor’ Craig Wright to Put Up or Shut Up

By CCN Markets: A Florida judge ordered Craig Wright — the self-proclaimed inventor of bitcoin — to put up or shut up if he wants to prove that he’s Satoshi Nakamoto. In a June 14 motion to compel, federal magistrate judge Bruce Reinhart ordered Wright to produce a list of all the bitcoin he mined prior to December 31, 2013. The judge set a June 17 deadline for Wright to produce the list of his bitcoin holdings — or else face court-ordered sanctions.
