Bitcoin’s White Paper Is Not a Bible – Stop Worshipping It – Samson Mow attempts to remind us the original post to the cypherpunk mail-list was to seed awareness among a intellectual group of hackers who might help improve an idea, not to provide a project scope or precise roadmap

Many people acknowledge October 31 2008 as the “birth” of Bitcoin by way of the white paper. These individuals are not recognizing the birth of the first block itself, but simply the birth of the idea being made by way of a public announcement to gain critical opinion and possibly further developmental support. A few clever people took his bait.

Mow writes a good summary as to why Satoshi's idea as described on 9 pages is not a technical scope document of a major software project and this difference is helpful by providing clarity and understanding.

The actual source code for the pre-release version came out November 16 2008, and version 0.1.0 on January 9th, 2009, after the Genisis Block was created. Satoshi himself stated his code began development at least 1.5 years prior.

I started a project using Bitcoin to help refugees in Greece earn a living & dignity by producing organic T-shirts, I need help! (reddit.com)

Hi Reddit! For the past two years I’ve been living in Greece and worked in different refugee camps. Now I decided to try to change the situation around by starting my own project producing organic T-shirts with refugees. Since it is difficult to open your own bank account in Greece (especially for refugees) I’m researching if it’s possible to pay all the employees with bitcoin. Because with crypto something which used to be difficult, could become very easy. But first I need to get the…
