The man claiming to have invented bitcoin says he doesn't know where the key to his fortune is, and a recent court ruling called for him to forfeit $3 billion worth of his holdings.




Craig Wright, the purported creator, told Bloomberg he "cannot be certain that information will in fact arrive" to prove his claim to the bitcoin fortune.




Earlier in 2019, a judge ruled that the late Dave Kleiman owned half of the coins Wright mined through 2013, and that Wright must forfeit that half to Kleiman's estate.

The man who claims to have invented bitcoin may not be able to give up $3 billion of his crypto riches for a court ruling because he doesn't know when he'll have access to the coins, Bloomberg reported.
Craig Wright, the alleged creator, told Bloomberg in a statement he "cannot be certain that information will in fact arrive" to prove his claim to the assets.
Wright was ordered earlier in 2019 to surrender the crypto sum after a judge ruled he owned only half of the coins he mined through 2013, according to Bloomberg. The late Dave Kleiman held the rights to the other half of the fortune, US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart ruled, adding that Wright has no legal claim to that portion of the mined cryptocurrency.
