Craig Wright can't access 1.1 million BTC

Wright recently gave an interview to Cointelegraph, during which he announced that he did not know whether he would ever receive private keys to a trust with 1.1 million BTC.

To the question of the journalist about when he will receive the keys and whether he will ever receive them at all, the Bitcoin SV developer answered:

I dont know. Many do not understand that I am not the owner of the keys. My Bitcoin Trust, however, I am not a trustee. I hope I get them. Will this be a big problem for BTC? Yes.

During the interview, Wright repeatedly stated thatthat he is the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto. According to him, the developers of BTC have significantly changed its original protocol. That is why BSV, not BTC, is the first cryptocurrency in the world. He said:

BTC developers, not realizing that they are at allmake completely spoiled the cryptocurrency protocol, just trying to make it more anonymous. They think that law enforcement will begin to turn a blind eye to anonymous transactions and will not look for ways to deanonymize them. These guys are real nerds.

Recall that at the beginning of the year, Wright sueda document stating that he received private keys from the BTC wallet. Against the background of this news, the price of BSV rose to $ 450.00 USD in a few days.

However, according to lawyer Wright,the developer did not receive private keys from the wallets, but only received a list of addresses of these wallets. During the interview, Wright said that a list of these addresses could also be seen as evidence of his ownership of them.

Shortly before the lawyer's statement, the price of BSV fell from $ 436 to $ 265 - a drop of about 40%.
