Legal Defense By The Bitcoin Community, For The Bitcoin Community
The Bitcoin Legal Defense Fund was founded in 2021 as a non-profit foundation to support Bitcoin developers and protect the Bitcoin ecosystem. We help developers find and retain defense counsel, craft litigation strategy, and pay their legal bills. Our first initiative was to take over coordinating the defense of a dozen Bitcoin developers who are being sued personally by “Tulip Trading Ltd.”, a Seychelles-based holding company created by Craig S. Wright. As its second initiative, the BLDF has recently taken on the defense of over a dozen Bitcoin developers who are being sued personally by “Craig S. Wright, Wright International & Others”.
