Mt.Gox Craig Wright

WizSec team leader Kim Nilsson reiterated that the 80,000 BTC allegedly owned by Craig Wright were actually stolen from the Mt.Gox exchange in March 2011 and have not moved since then.

In his new record, Nilsson once again recalls the events of 2011-2013, when significant amounts were stolen from Mt.Gox, which ceased to exist. One of their episodes concerns almost 80,000 BTC displayed on 1FeexV6bAHb8ybZjqQMjJrcCrHGW9sb6uF.

Recall that in early 2020, posing as the creator of Bitcoin, Wright provided the court with a list of 16,404 addresses, stating that they belong to him. However, on June 12, the former head of Mt.Gox. Mark Karpeles discovered that one of these wallets is tied to the hacking of the Mt.Gox exchange.

A few days later, Wright said that he was not involved in hacking the exchange and acquired these bitcoins in 2011.

Kim Nilsson, who has been conducting a detailed study of the Mt.Gox hacking series for many years, almost immediately refuted Wright's version of the purchase of these bitcoins. Now he once again confirmed that the indicated amount was stolen. It happened on March 1, 2011, in the process of transferring assets to Karpeles by the previous owner of the exchange, Jed McCaleb.

Earlier this week, Mark Karpeles stated that Craig Wright had put himself in a hopeless situation, declaring that he owned a wallet with stolen bitcoins and that this situation would not end well for him.
