The vision for what Bitcoin is, and supposed to be, was outlined by its inventor Dr. Craig S. Wright, using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, in the white paper entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer to Peer Electronic Cash System” (posted online on October 31st, 2008).

Dr. Wright released the first open source Bitcoin client software approximately two months later in January 2009.

In May 2019, Dr. Wright was issued “U.S. copyright registrations for most of the original Bitcoin Client Software Code version 0.1” and for the Bitcoin White Paper.
