Bitcoin Whitepaper

While there are many whitepapers that include Bitcoin and Bitcoin related topics, ‘the Bitcoin Whitepaper‘ is a commonly a specific reference to the original whitepaper created by Satoshi Nakamoto that lays out the framework of the bitcoin protocol. This eight page paper, originally released to an obscure cryptography focused mailing list, was published in 2008 to the bitcoin.org website with the title Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.
