Hi, how can I get a copy of the original Bitcoin rar distributed Fri, 09 Jan 2009?

Originally this was posted at:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/bitcoin/bitcoin-0.1.0.rar

The commits on Github go back to August 2009 so you might be able to get it there.

I think the first release might have been 0.1.5, which is on the Sourceforge download page.

This is the first instance of Bitcoin.org in the Internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20090131115053/http://bitcoin.org/

edit... nevermind, this is the first, and it lists 0.1.3: http://web.archive.org/web/20090131115053/http://bitcoin.org/

The current source directory has been trunked and the old code prior to August has been removed. I want the original rar, dated January 2009.

I want 21 million bitcoins to magically appear in my wallet. Unfortunately I don't think either is going to happen.

I've still got 0.1.3, if that's of any interest to you.

According to this site, the file bitcoin-0.1.3.rar was released only 4 days after bitcoin-0.1.0.rar and has the same filesize.

According to this sourceforge page, both files also have the same md5sum, which is a bit surprising, because the included readme contains the version number "BitCoin v0.1.3 ALPHA". It seems, the 0.1.0 rar was retroactively replaced with the 0.1.3 rar (brown-paper-bag bug?)

You can probably consider this the original release for all practical purposes.

Feel free to verify the checksum with the one posted above.

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!
