Oh, this is quite an interesting project. Thanks for starting it! I would also recommend looking through this old forum posts and digging up the Press section to see news that made it to the site, and also serves as evidence for the facts. Similarly you could go through archives of some of the old news sites to look for important events that happened.

I see the date for Nakamoto's last post. Maybe also a date for the first and last known correspondence for him? Emails.

Also, the message attached to the genesis block is quite important for historians... about the bailout.

There's this timeline that was started on http://historyofbitcoin.org/, quite a lot of useful dates to make note of, for me particularly, the dates Bitcoin value was first established on an exchange (October 5 2009) and quote:

Quote
New Liberty Standard publishes a Bitcoin exchange rate that establishes the value of a Bitcoin at US$1 = 1,309.03 BTC, using an equation that includes the cost of electricity to run a computer that generated Bitcoins.

Also when it reached parity with the US dollar, if price tracking is important (it's not, but significant).

The timeline ends abruptly in 2014, but it was resurrected here, all the way to March 2017:

update-

October 5th- BTC–USD exchange rates are first posted by NewLibertyStandard, where $1 is worth 1,309.03 BTC.[14] "During 2009 my exchange rate was calculated by dividing $1.00 by the average amount of electricity required to run a computer with high CPU for a year, 1331.5 kWh, multiplied by […] the average residential cost of electricity in the United States for the previous year, $0.1136, divided by 12 months divided by the number of bitcoins generated by my computer over the past 30 days."

October 12th- The first trade of bitcoin for fiat money takes place. Martti Malmi (Sirius) sells 5,050 BTC to NewLibertyStandard for $5.02.

December 16- Bitcoin version 0.2 is released.By this point, Martti Malmi has joined Satoshi Nakamoto a developer with full permission to change the codebase. "Starting in August, the log of changes to the software showed that Martti was now the main actor. When the next version of Bitcoin, 0.2, was released, Satoshi gave credit for most of the improvements to Martti."

December 30- The first difficulty increase occurs, from 1 to 1.18.

July 6-Bitcoin version 0.3 is released.

September 9- The main Bitcoin subreddit, r/Bitcoin, is created. As of June 12, 2017 it has 241,000 subscribers.

November 6- Bitcoin market capitalization passes $1 million.

April 16- Jerry Brito's "Online Cash Bitcoin Could Challenge Governments, Banks" is published on Time. Nathaniel Popper calls this "the first mainstream news coverage for Bitcoin".

May 9- The launch of Bitbills is announced. Bitbills are the first physical incarnation of bitcoins, coming in plastic cards that contain the cryptographic information.

the above mentioned dates were updated.

I really like the idea. Maybe you should expand the timeline over the full Bitcoin lifecylce: each day from 2008 to now.

I remember a event on 17th December 2013 when China's Central Bank announced to ban Bitcoin transactions. As a consequence the Bitcoin price crashed to nearly US$500.

That would be more than 3000 lines long, i only did this as a fun project, unfortunately i dont have that much time to write all the dates down like i did for this post, i have home work and stuff to do, 365 is nothing compared to 3650 lines

The ability to present information in a succinct and intelligible manner is a characteristic of a deep thinker and user of words on pen. The dates nothing happened would have been deleted and give one the moral rectitude to continue reading. The history of the bitcoin and its inventor is quite amazing,however it is wiser and smarter to keep things simple.

The plan is to add more things to the dates as more things happen/ more things gets added

Always nice to see someone new find all this stuff interesting. We take a lot for granted, what with every new alt popping up every day and many of them talking about the weaknesses, faults and shortcomings of Bitcoin. Even if timelines and history are really just for posterity, even if they have no value to take from going forward, there's still a lot of human interest in the past.

@OP: I neglect to ask, out of curiosity, what's your stake in all this?

thanks for noticing the history of bitcoin, and I think bitcoin history is very attractive from the price every year, because if I see bitcoin prices always increase in every year and that is almost all happening at the end of the year.

What do you mean by stake? if your asking my incentive to do this i mainly just did it as a fun project because i didnt see any other post like this on the forum, but seeing that people actually found this interesting and BitcoinArsenal even merited me, this gives me more incentive to update and continue this Cheesy I have enough posts to rank up but not enough merit
