- Craig Wright claimed Bitcoin.org violated his copyright claim by continuing to host the Bitcoin whitepaper.
- Since then, in defiance, many websites have added the Bitcoin whitepaper.
- These are the five most secure ways to access the Bitcoin whitepaper today.
The Bitcoin whitepaper was published in 2008 under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto and later uploaded to a single website: Bitcoin.org. It was published under an MIT license, along with the rest of the code, making it freely available for all to distribute.
But this came under attack recently, when Coingeek chief scientist Craig Wright—who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto but hasnt signed a transaction with Nakamotos PGP key to prove it—issued legal demands to both Bitcoin.org to take down the whitepaper.
Bitcoin.org refused and in solidarity, Bitcoiners across the world have come together to upload the Bitcoin whitepaper in as many places as possible, and in the most secure places possible. Here are some of the best ways that the Bitcoin whitepaper is being secured around the world.
