The Mystery of Satoshi Nakamoto
This is the case Satoshi Nakamoto it will continue decisively between Craig, who claims to be, and Kleiman, who argues that his brother is half of Satoshi.
In her opening statement, Wright’s lawyer Amanda McGovern claimed that Wright’s autism made it difficult to communicate with her, that she was overly realistic and belligerent. McGovern, Noting the social difficulties Wright had throughout his life, claiming that Wright came from a “very difficult home”, that he had “very few friends in his childhood”, and that he was “considered strange even by his older sister”.
