On Tuesday, Wright registered a statement affirming that he had acquired data to open encrypted files of thousands of Bitcoin's public addresses that he ensures he owns.

Earlier under oath, Craig Wright said that an "encrypted file" exists, and it includes a record of both private and public keys. Numerous people supposed that courier on Tuesday brought the private keys file to Wright.

But his attorney declined the news and stated that the file Wright got didn't involve private keys. Wright expects to get them at a later date. The lawyer mentioned that the keys may arrive either as one or divided into some pieces, but refused to give more detailed comments.
