Apple Removes Bitcoin Whitepaper from macOS Ventura Beta
In a move that has left many scratching their heads, Apple has removed the original Bitcoin whitepaper from the latest version of its MacOS Ventura 13.4 beta. A blog post from technologist Andy Baio revealed that the PDF copy of Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin white paper had shipped with every copy of MacOS for the past five years, and was found within a Virtual Scanner II app in the operating system.
Theories have been circulating as to why it was included in the first place, including the possibility that it was an inside joke between Apple engineers, or even that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was Satoshi Nakamoto. However, Apple has now removed the document from the latest version of the Mac operating system, effectively confirming that it was never meant to be found by regular users.
The news comes as Apple is facing a legal battle in California, after the firm was found to be in violation of state competition laws. The tech giant had been forcing NFT creators and developers to use its own payments platform, where they would be charged a 30% commission.
The ruling is a likely win for the web3 space, as it opens the door for developers to use alternative in-app payment methods. This could result in more NFTs being created and sold, as well as more crypto-based marketing campaigns.
As the NFT industry continues to grow, so too does the need for effective NFT marketing. NFT marketing agencies are popping up to help creators promote and sell their digital assets. Twitter is an increasingly popular platform for NFT promotion, and a number of agencies now specialize in Twitter NFT marketing, helping creators reach the widest possible audience.
The rise of the web3 space has also seen the emergence of web3 agencies, which specialize in creating and promoting NFTs. These agencies can help creators design and develop their NFTs, as well as helping them to market and sell them.
The NFT industry is growing rapidly, and Apple’s decision to remove the Bitcoin whitepaper from its operating system is unlikely to slow it down. As more people become aware of the potential of NFTs, the demand for NFT marketing and web3 agencies is likely to increase.Disclaimer: All investment or financial opinions expressed by MoonLanding Media are not recommendations and are intended for entertainment purposes only.
