Multinational technology company Apple has removed the bitcoin whitepaper from the latest version of its macOS operating system. The move has sparked controversy within the crypto community, with some seeing it as a step backwards in mainstream bitcoin adoption.
As a reminder, the white paper written by Satoshi Nakamoto was, for several years, in all macOS operating systems – Mojave (10.14.0) to Ventura (13.3).
The bitcoin white paper, written by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, outlines the principles and technical details of the crypto. It is widely considered a founding document in the history of bitcoin and has been instrumental in its growth and development.
Despite the controversy surrounding Apple’s decision, it should be noted that the company has not made any official statement on the matter. It is unclear whether the removal of the white paper was intentional or the result of a technical issue or oversight.
Regardless of the reason for its removal, the bitcoin white paper remains a foundational document in the crypto world, and its influence on the development of bitcoin cannot be overstated.
In any case, as far as Apple experts are concerned, the Bitcoin white paper was never intended to be found by lambda users. It is therefore likely that Apple engineers simply did not choose to remove the file because it did not include any sensitive information.
