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

Originally this was posted at:

This link is no longer valid.

Make sure you back up your wallet regularly! With Bitcoin-Qt, it needs to be backed up at least as often as every 100 transactions (both sends and receipts) or new addresses.

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!
