It is from this amount that Wright intends to pay 550,000 BTC in favor of Ira Kleiman, the brother of his former business partner, now deceased Dave Kleiman.
In a letter of June 2011, allegedly signedby Dave Kleiman himself, he agrees to return the cryptocurrency to Craig Wright, if before that she will still be in the Tulip Trust blind trust. To do this, Kleiman supposedly needs to hire a courier who, on January 1, 2020, will transfer the private keys to the trust's wallets to Wright.

However, there is a discrepancy in the letter: Kleiman claims to have "received satoshi" from Craig Wright, implying the sending of a million bitcoins mined together. However, the term "satoshi" was introduced only in 2013.
Wright did not provide any further clarification on the letter. Therefore, its authenticity is doubtful.
Recall in February 2018 Ira Kleiman, brotherThe late computer forensic scientist and mathematician Dave Kleiman, who is associated with the creation of bitcoin, accused Craig Wright of appropriating about 1.1 million BTC.
The court decided to recover from Wright half of this amount. But the entrepreneur said that he does not have access to money, since he does not have private keys to coin wallets.
At the same time, Craig Wright was unable to provide evidence that he has access to coins associated with the creator of bitcoin.
