Charlie Shrem Says He Never Owned Bitcoin Claimed Stolen By Winklevosses
November 06, 2018 9:56 PM Discuss Early bitcoin entrepreneur Charlie Shrem is pushing back against an accusation that he stole 5,000 bitcoin from Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, according to recently-published court filings. In a document filed Monday with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Shrem calls the Winklevoss brothers assertion that he stole 5,000 bitcoin dead wrong, while also arguing against a prejudgement motion to freeze certain of his assets. The Winklevoss brothers sued Shrem in September, though the complaint remained under seal until October, claiming that while they paid him $1 million to purchase bitcoin on their behalf in September 2012, he failed to deliver 5,000 coins, instead keeping them for himself. At press time, they would be worth approximately $32 million.

Yet the concerns highlighted in that March decision don't seem to have abated, according to the decision published Thursday by the SEC.
