Was Steve Jobs Really Satoshi and Was Bitcoin His Final Gift to Humanity?
Here’s an Easter Egg: every new Apple Mac computer running macOS Catalina or newer comes with a copy of the Bitcoin whitepaper.
It’s a real thing. Look.
While this video from McShane might be a joke, there really is a digital copy of the bitcoin whitepaper in every Mac.
Vlad from BTCTKVR fueled the speculation and made fun of Apple fans all in the same sentence:
New narrative: Bitcoin was Steve Jobs’ final gift to humanity.
He knew he was going to die, he knew that the money system was broken, so he called his old friend Steve Wozniak to create a purely mathematical & electricity-fueled form of sound money.
Apple fanboys, buy BTC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Vlad Costea
How to get to the bitcoin whitepaper?
Don’t believe me? See for yourself:
- Open the Terminal
- Get your mind blown. (It has been there since 2018 and we’ve only discovered it just now!)
Frankly, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. No, Steve Jobs was not Satoshi, as I said multiple times already, Steve Jobs would have been the first person to shitcoin and create a closed system built on cryptocurrency. I’m surprised Apple hasn’t done it already.
The most important thing in all of this is how the mainstream media reported it. They’re calling it a manifesto.
The MSM for some reason has decided to rename the Bitcoin Whitepaper to the “Bitcoin Manifesto”@Pledditor
And Druid (the second person to run a node after Satoshi) had a scathing comment on that.
For “some reason”…
The reason is the media are in the State’s pocket, and the State just took a decidedly anti-Bitcoin position. “Manifesto” makes it sound extreme and dangerous to the public.
Imagine thinking money that can’t be debased or stolen from you is dangerous.Druidian
It’s clear how the next stage is gonna present itself. “And then they fight you…”
In lighter developments, Faketoshi Craig Wright plans to sue Apple for hosting the bitcoin whitepaper, which he claims he has trademarked or whatever. That should be entertaining.
What do you think? Is there a chance Steve Jobs was Satoshi Nakamoto?
