Posted on 2 February 2022

Private Wealth and Private Wealth Disputes Associate Emily Bueno and Partner Stuart Adams have published an article in Lexis Nexis on the latest development in Tulip Trading Ltd v Bitcoin Association for BSV.

"Tulip, a company registered in the Seychelles and owned by Dr Craig Wright, the inventor of Bitcoin, claims that in February 2020, hackers accessed his computer and stole its digitally-held (via Dr Wright's computer situated in England), encrypted private Bitcoin keys, copied them and then deleted all trace of them, leaving it without access to approximately US$4.5bn of the cryptocurrency.

Now Master Clark has handed down a judgment in respect of an application for security for costs against sixteen software developers who implemented and developed the Bitcoin Core and BitCoin Cash ABC."
