Self-declared Satoshi Nakamoto and BSV proponent Craig Wright used forged documents in court to prove his innocence. Stephen Palley, a trial lawyer unveiled this news by sharing the documents on Twitter. Allegedly, Wright falsified the court documents to prove a trust deed with his plaintiffs.
Per Palley, Wright presented documents with multiple chronological errors in court. As a result, he failed to prove his case.
One of the files that the BSV advocate submitted sought to prove that he worked with David Kleiman. The document that he presented is dated October 23, 2012. However, its metadata shows that it was created after Kleiman’s death. Palley found that the file uses Calibri, a Microsoft font copyrighted in 2015.
While Calibri has been in existence for close to two decades now, updated versions have been coming up since then, and the font’s copyrights have been updates as well. Therefore, this shows that the document that Wright submitted could not have been from 2012.
After accusing Wright of using fake documents in court, Palley noted,
I mean it makes sense that the inventor of bitcoin can time travel.

Craig Wright’s Case Can Affect the BSV Market
At the moment, bitcoin SV (BSV) prices have remained resilient despite the outcome of Wright’s case. According to a report, there is a chance that BSV adopters that could have been swayed by the outcome of this case have already sold their holdings.
Reportedly, none of the case’s developments are affecting BSV’s price. Nonetheless, Palley believes that presenting false evidence in court has severe consequences.
At the start, the case only put BTC worth billions of Dollars at stake. However, the publication notes that as it continues to unfold, it could put the entire BSV market at risk.
This news comes after a report unveiled that Wright intended to put three expert witnesses on the stand. The publication noted that the expert witnesses would testify in his evidentiary hearing.
Prior to this, Wright failed to comply with a court order that required him to provide a list of all his early BTC addresses. He claimed that he did not have access to the coins in question. He added that he gave a crucial piece of information regarding the funds and wallets to Kleiman before his death. As a result, this made it difficult to find the wallets or the funds they allegedly hold.
Do you think Craig Wright’s close association with BSV will see the coin’s value plunge if he fails to prove his innocence? Let us know in the comments section below.
