Colombia, Estonia Upload the Bitcoin White Paper to Their Governmental Websites

More sites are hosting Bitcoin's founding white paper since Craig Wright's threatened copyright infringement lawsuit.

Updated Sep 14, 2021 at 11:01 a.m. UTC

A pair of foreign government websites joined a growing cadre of online forums supporting Bitcoin's founding document.

  • Prompted by tweets from former Coinbase CTO Balaji Srinivasan, recently created links to the Bitcoin white paper hosted on Estonian and Colombian government sites have been shared to Twitter.
  • Representative Patrick McHenry, ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, also hosted a copy of the white paper on his official congressional government webpage.
  • Publicly hosting digital copies of the white paper has become a community response to legal threats of alleged copyright violations filed by nChain Chief Scientist Craig Wright against the nonprofits Bitcoin.org and Bitcoincore.org, which have long hosted the document.
  • Since 2018, a copy of Satoshi Nakamoto's white paper has also been tucked away on the U.S. Sentencing Commission's website.

Update (Jan. 26, 22:54 UTC): Rep. McHenry added to second bullet.
