The developer of peer-to-peer messenger Bitmessage, Jonathan Warren, testified against Australian computer scientist Craig Wright stating that some of Wright's documents in a recent trial were faked. Per a court document released on Aug. 13, Warren testified in the course of an ongoing lawsuit against Wright filed by the estate of David Kleiman, who was a cyber-security expert, whom many believe to have been one of the first developers behind Bitcoin and blockchain technology.
Access to Bitmessage In the U.S. Southern District of Florida court, Warren confirmed his role in the development of Bitmessage, also claiming that both Wright and Kleinman had access to the messaging software before its launch. Warren's claim thus points out chronological inconsistencies in some of the documents Wright previously provided to the court.
Specifically, Wright allegedly faked some contracts, email correspondences and Bitmessages, which were purportedly set to move Kleinman's assets under Wright's control. Wright's documentation troublesIn July, Wright allegedly provided fabricated court documents to prove a trust deed with his plaintiffs, according to trial lawyer Stephen Palley. In May, Wright also failed to produce a list of his public Bitcoin addresses in response to an order issued by the court.
