The Timeline

8th January 2009

Bitcoin white paper released

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”. Four months later the first open source Bitcoin client software is released.

Satoshi gets concerned and takes a sabbatical

Dr. Craig S. Wright was very explicit about his concerns that Bitcoin was being infiltrated by anonymous developers, criminals misusing it and that it had become associated with projects like WikiLeaks. This distortion of his tool was unacceptable and thus removed himself from the project to ‘venture into more complex ideas’ like the Metanet.

BCH remains as Bitcoin, BTC forks away

“Segregated Witness” or SegWit, was designed to remove the tracing capabilities of Bitcoin allowing the introduction of off-chain, opaque exchange solutions such as the Lightning Network. The introduction of this broke Bitcoin’s original protocol and clearly renders BTC as non-Bitcoin compliant and intentionally ineffective.

BSV remains as Bitcoin, BCH forks away

Bitcoin SV (BSV) becomes the new ticker symbol for the original Bitcoin Protocol when BCH decided to divert from Bitcoin’s white paper, introduce non-Bitcoin compliant features which included introducing anonymity that hinders government and financial regulation. This is why it’s considered Bitcoin’s Independence Day.

Genesis Upgrade

The Genesis upgrade restored the original Bitcoin Protocol as closely as possible to Satoshi’s original design, locking it down to create stability for developers and enterprises to build upon. Unbounded scaling returned, as did the original Bitcoin script language that allows developers to build on-chain applications easier.

2022 onwards

Bitcoin sets numerous World Records

Numerous world records have now been set on Bitcoin’s original protocol including regularly surpassing millions of transactions a day, the largest blocks (+4GB), largest NFT (1GB) and the lowest environmental impact of any proof-of-work (POW) chain.
