He is accused of stealing bitcoin from a former business partner.

Whether or not Australian Craig Wright is bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto (which he, for those of you who do not know the story, claims to be), is an infected issue. But that’s not the only controversy Craig Wright is involved in.

Craig Wright is currently in a legal dispute with the surviving family members of his former business partner David Kleiman. They argue that Craig Wright stole bitcoin that the two of them mined together between 2009 and 2011.

Can be convicted for contempt of court

As part of the legal process, the Kleiman family has now requested Craig Wright to show how his bitcoin holdings looked before 2013. The judge has issued a court order telling Craig Wright to show his holdings, but despite this, the self-appointed Satoshi Nakamoto refuses to do so.

It remains to be seen whether Craig Wright will show his bitcoin holdings. But if he doesn’t, he can be sentenced for contempt of court, Coindesk reports.
