"Craig, I think you're crazy and this is very risky, but I believe in what we're trying to do," Kleiman wrote in an email to Wright.

When asked about the connection with bitcoin, he simply replied, "Uh, I've been involved in all this for a very long time, I tried and survived, and I keep trying to be invisible to the public," Wright said.
