In yet another way Bitcoin is being tethered to modern day infrastructure, it was reported yesterday that the original Bitcoin whitepaper – authored by Satoshi Nakamoto and laying out the fundamentals of the world’s most well known cryptocurrency – has been included in every copy of Mac OS since 2018.
The revelation was made by blogger Andy Baio, who wrote yesterday that he had “discovered” the hidden gem while attempting to fix his printer. He then asked “over a dozen Mac-using friends to confirm” what he had found, and they did.
He wrote that the white paper was “found in every version of macOS from Mojave (10.14.0) to the current version, Ventura (13.3), but isn’t in High Sierra (10.13) or earlier.”
He then offered up directions on how Mac users could check for themselves:

“If you’re on a Mac, open a Terminal and type the following command:
open /System/Library/Image\ Capture/Devices/VirtualScanner.app/Contents/Resources/simpledoc.pdf”
He says that the white paper should “immediately open” for those using Mac OS 10.14 or later.
