Craig Wright’s ‘harassment and libel’ campaign might have hit a roadblock

Craig Wright’s “harassment and libel” lawsuit campaign has been extensively covered across different media platforms. His campaign might have come to a pause or possible end, as a Twitter user pointed out that Wright may have submitted a “provably fake email in court for the Kleiman case”.

Dr. Funkenstein, a Twitter user had tweeted:

The letter is an email from David Kleiman, which will act as proof to Craig’s claims about him being Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. According to Craig Wright, the email was sent by David Kleiman in 2012 and this letter/email was submitted by Wright in the court of law as proof.

According to Dr. Funkenstein, the letter contained a hex coded time stamp, which after decoding yielded the actual date, i.e., March 12, 2014, which is contradictory to Wright’s claims.

Dr. Funkenstein also tweeted:

“I should have mentioned, Dave died in 2013, so unless he rose from the dead, this email wasn’t from him.”

If what Dr. Funkenstein claims, is true, then Craig Wright’s claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto would be discredited. This would imply other cases that Craig Wright has been filing against several people in the crypto community like Peter McCormack, Adam Back, etc would come to naught, unless Wright has more proof to his claims.

Monero’s fluffypony commented on the matter as he tweeted:

“From: Dave Klieman”
So the court is expected to believe that Dave Kleiman couldn’t even spell his own name correctly when setting up his email client? That seems…unlikely.
Craig Wright is a fraud. Sorry for your loss, @CalvinAyre.”

Wright and Ayre’s relentless campaigns have pushed the coin, Bitcoin SV to the edge as exchanges like Binance, Shapeshift and others have delisted it.

The Securities and Commission Exchange [SEC] has yet again delayed another Bitcoin ETF. This time around, the commission has decided to delay the VanEck Soldix Bitcoin ETF, one of the most awaited exchange-traded funds in the cryptocurrency community.

In the document released today, the exchange has asked for more comments on the proposed rule change and has also asked for further information on queries related to the exchange-traded fund. The commission stated that it has received 25 comments on the proposed rule change so far.  It stated,

“On January 30, 2019, Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. […] filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, […] a proposed rule change to list and trade shares of SolidX Bitcoin Shares issued by the VanEck SolidX Bitcoin Trust […] The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on February 20, 2019.”

It further stated

“On March 29, 2019, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act, the commission designated a longer period within which to approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change.”

Notably, the main concerns of the commission continue to be market manipulation and the measure taken by the platform to protect its investors. The commission is currently seeking comments on 14 queries pertaining to the VanEck Bitcoin ETF.

This includes the views of the ‘commenters’ on whether the exchange has entered “into a surveillance-sharing agreement with a regulated market of significant size related to bitcoin?”, the relationship between the Bitcoin futures markets and the Bitcoin spot market, with the focus being price formation, the relationship between the Bitcoin futures market and the proposed Bitcoin ETF, and the commenters’ views “of the Exchange’s assertions that bitcoin is arguably less susceptible to manipulation than other commodities that underlie ETPs”.

Gabor Gurbacs, Director of Digital Assets Strategy with VanEck said on Twitter,

“The VanEck SolidX #Bitcoin #ETF decision has been postponed by the SEC. We continue the hard work towards better-regulated, safer and more liquid digital assets markets. Bitcoin is too big to ignore. Vires in numeris!”
