The Bitcoin white paper has been covertly taken out of the most recent  beta of the largest tech company’s operating system update.

The Big Tech company has removed a test scanner tool named Virtual  Scanner II from the most recent MacOS Ventura 13.4 beta, and as a  result, the Bitcoin white paper has also been erased, according to the  Apple-focused news site 9to5Mac, which broke the story on April 25.

In a blog post from April 5, technologist Andy Baio disclosed that every  copy of MacOS for the previous five years had included a PDF of Satoshi  Nakamoto’s Bitcoin white paper.
