BitMEX described Lynam as Wright’s cousin, while Matthews is the CEO of nChain, a global blockchain technology company. While Matthews was physically present in court, Bridges and Lynam were said to appear remotely. On the schedule of cross-examination, BitMEX reported that Matthews will likely continue his cross-examination into tomorrow morning, after which the cross-examination of COPA witnesses would begin. However, as per BitMEX’s report, neither Wright nor Matthews had arrived at the courtroom. Today’s proceeding continues as trial day 11. It is a case where COPA, led by a combination of commercial interests like Coinbase, Kraken, Block, and Meta, sued Wright, a British Australian computer scientist, over claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous inventor of Bitcoin. As per BitMEX’s report, only Bridges’ cross-examination was on, following a remote swearing-in process via a video link. In his response to questions, the witness noted that he had not watched the trial, even on social media. He agreed to have worked for Qudos Bank for 19 years and only stopped working there last December. Bridges acknowledged having met Wright in 2006 when he did security audit work. He also agreed that Wright did a full security audit and then did similar tests on third parties as a summary of his work at BDO. The witness cross-examination was ongoing when BitMEX made its report, with more revelations expected in determining whether Wright is Bitcoin’s creator based on his claims. Crypto community members expect the case to linger. Perhaps it will take a few weeks before the court determines the authenticity of Wright’s claims.
