The Bitcoin Whitepaper is hidden in every modern copy of macOS

Article note: Bitcoin finds a small, subtle additional way to be a giant waste of resources.

While trying to fix my printer today, I discovered that a PDF copy of Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin whitepaper apparently shipped with every copy of macOS since Mojave in 2018.

I’ve asked over a dozen Mac-using friends to confirm, and it was there for every one of them. The file is found in every version of macOS from Mojave (10.14.0) to the current version (Ventura), but isn’t in High Sierra (10.13) or earlier.

A peculiar find indeed, considering the utter uselessness and wastefulness that is cryptocurrency.
