Craig Wright reportedly just admitted to hacking Mt. Gox. One of the faces of the anonymous Monero coin, Ricardo Spagni, also known as Fluffy Pony, tweeted out information indicating the affiliation of Craig Wright to a Bitcoin wallet related to Mt. Gox.
The tweet read “Just so we’re clear, Craig Wright has just openly admitted (via his lawyers) to be the guy that stole 80k BTC from Mtgox” attaching screenshots of the courts documents “indicating the “1Feex” address is where the stolen Mtgox funds were sent”.
As part of an ongoing legal dispute, Wright claims to have at least part Tulip Trust ownership. This is a list of various Bitcoin wallet addresses containing an amount of approximately 1.1 million Bitcoin. He and his business associate, Dave Kleiman, allegedly mined these bitcoins in its earliest days.
Kleiman died in 2013, leaving Wright, as recently reported, unable to move the funds on his own.
Just so we're clear, Craig Wright has just openly admitted (via his lawyers) to be the guy that stole 80k BTC from Mtgox. The screenshots below show the court documents indicating the "1Feex" address is where the stolen Mtgox funds were sent. What do you have to say, @CalvinAyre? pic.twitter.com/Yh1esDar6J
