I made this presentation for the Amsterdam BlockchainTalks meetup in order to share the long history of Bitcoin with the audience.
Most people were (and are) under the impression that Bitcoin just dropped out of nowhere in 2008. I wanted to set the record straight and show the larger development that it fitted in.
In the process, I learned a lot of new things, which is why you now find the “Cypherpunk Texts” section on this site.
