I am working to retype the leaked FBI report on Bitcoin.  The final version will be released upon bounty of a total of 10 BTC being sent to the following BTC address:  1KS4KyLgaZik4fyesqjTMK1sh8mBz6W2dN

This will include all coloring, images (where possible), font formatting, and footnotes of the original document.  Text spelling, grammar, and punctuation will be EXACT (even where wrong) to the original document.  Text spacing will be exact and consistent with the original document to allow easy cross-reference and verification of text.  The file will be released as both a docx and a pdf, and will be available free to download.  Below is a sample screenshot.

Goal:  Completion by 6:00 PM PST today (5/8/2012)

Is that just me or does that read as if "Bitcoin" was a company?

There's an explanation of their terminology near the beginning of the document.

Quote
(U//FOUO) This assessment will not address malicious actors outside of the cyber underground, such as traditional organized crime groups, extremist groups, or child predators.  Throughout the paper, the term “Bitcoin,” when capitalized, refers to both the open source software used to create the virtual currency and the P2P network formed as a result; “bitcoin” using lower case refers to the virtual currency that is digitally traded between users.

Thanks D&T

That's 4.5 BTC sent or pledged.

I am through page 15/20 at this point, on to the Endnotes (the most time-consuming portion).

Thanks rjk, 6 BTC of the 10 BTC bounty fulfilled.

Per D&T's suggestion, I am posting a free sample of the first three pages of content (not including the cover page).  This is just the .docx file.

Also, what is a good file host service to use?  I am not a fan of yourfilelink.com, so if someone wants to suggest a better service and/or rehost the sample elsewhere, that is fine.

Oh, ok.

EDIT:  I don't really like it... Google Docs renders some things differently, and doesn't seem to allow for download of the original file.

Most think it is real (myself included, especially after reading it in excruciating detail while retyping it), but there are a handful who think it is fake.  I just don't see how/why someone would go through as much detail as they did for a faked document.  What would the motive have been?  The endnotes by themselves imply hundreds of hours of research just to gather the information, let alone write the rest of the paper.  If it is a fake, it's a dang good one, and whoever did it wasted a whole lot of time in creating it.

Document is proofed and ready to be released upon completion of the bounty.  Bounty is currently at 6.2 out of 10 BTC.
