Winklevoss Lawsuit Claims Charlie Shrem ‘Stole 5000 BTC’ in 2012, Shrem’s Lawyer Denies

In the lawsuit unsealed Thursday, Nov. 1, the Winklevoss twins, with whom Shrem worked on a previous project before serving one year in jail for alleged facilitation of drug purchasing using Bitcoin (BTC), said the issue goes back to 2012.

The New York Times on 2nd Nov. A lawyer for Bitcoin Foundation founder Charlie Shrem has denied claims by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss that he “stole” 5000 bitcoins (now $31.7 million) from them in 2012.

“The lawsuit erroneously alleges that about six years ago Charlie essentially misappropriated thousands of Bitcoins,” he said in a statement, adding:

“Nothing could be further from the truth. Charlie plans to vigorously defend himself and quickly clear his name.”

While Shrem has not officially responded to the fresh legal challenge, a lawyer representing him criticized the lawsuit’s content.
