Craig Wright wins Florida trial on all claims except conversion

Craig Wright (pictured), who claims to be the founder of Bitcoin known as Satoshi Nakamoto, was on Monday found guilty on only one of the claims brought before a court in Florida by the family of his deceased business partner Dave Kleiman.

The plaintiff claimed that half of the assets, worth over 1 million Bitcoin, belongs to the family of the departed as the two jointly developed the world's largest cryptocurrency.

The lawsuit had Wright accused of fraud, civil theft, unjust enrichment, and misappropriation of trade secrets. The Australian was found guilty on the count of conversion, but no punitive damages were awarded.
