How to use this archive

You can search any document in the archive by author, dates, and keywords. Try out terms like micropayment, VISA, Moore's Law, Mike Hearn, node, anonymous. Results will appear in real-time.

Some terms that are popular now that were not in use then. For example, if you want to find references to the blocksize limit, you might search simply limit.

In general you will find the best search results by typing less to account for variations of words like plurals. Rather than anonymity, for example, just start with anon and you’ll get both anonymity and anonymous.


Highlighting text will automatically update the permalink in browser so that you can link to any specific piece of text in any document. People who click the links you share will automatically jump to the highlighted text on the page. Headers also have anchor links for easy jumping or sharing.
