- According to sources, Apple will probably delete the Bitcoin white paper from their computer system.
- Andy Baio, who discovered the paper, was informed by a source inside Apple that a work ticket to remove the document had already been submitted.
- According to AppleInsider, the manifesto for the digital token is missing from the macOS Ventura 13.4 beta.
Users recently learned that every copy of macOS contains the original Bitcoin whitepaper concealed within its internal files. Although we think that the existence of the file there was only a joke among Apple engineers, Apple never discussed the explanation for this. The file is no longer present with the most recent macOS Ventura beta.
The digital token’s manifesto, which was written by the enigmatic Satoshi Nakamoto, has reportedly been removed from the recent beta version of macOS Ventura 13.4, less than a month after it was unintentionally stumbled upon by tech writer Andy Baio in early April, according to a report from AppleInsider.
Citing an Apple source, Baio warned the media that the white paper would probably be deleted in the next software updates. According to the source, the white paper had been added to the software system, and a developer work ticket had been issued to delete it.
The widely acclaimed foundation text of Bitcoin, “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,” lays out the operational principles that allow the digital token to function as money.
The finding of the paper gave rise to rumors that Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs might have been Satoshi Nakamoto, the Bitcoin’s pseudonymous creator who disappeared from the internet in late 2010, just around the time Jobs died. The co-founder of Apple, Jobs, passed away in 2011, seven years before the paper first showed up on Apple computers; thus, there is no possibility that Jobs put the paper in the system, say analysts.
