A 19 pages PDF version of the original study about the puzzles in the Bytecoin's blockchain and websites. The theses is seeking for answers, why cypherpunkers became the fans of Galileo, Dante, Hugo, Napoleon or Nietzsche. The text is trying to decipher the symbolic language used by CryptoNote team when they were using Matrix, Fight club, Neuromancer or Cyphernomicon references. The text isn't solving all mysteries, but it provides important help, like when it identifies the places of the meetups of Bytecoin mining groups.

I'm pretty sure the whole history behind Bytecoin is fabricated.  It was never released years before everyone found out about it.  That story was just concocted to conceal the massive premine.
We are the descendants of Bitcoin.  We are the continuation of the cause it started, but that perished with its centralization.
An economic system is a manifestation of an ideology.  What was lost, we shall reclaim.

I was focusing on content, but still I don't agree. In the blockchain there is a link at this tweet https://twitter.com/unSYSTEM2013/status/243726820984369153 from September 2012. It would be very strange to find such tweets retrospectively, so from the point of the extraNonces view, they are legitimate.

Also who is shows registration of the site in 2011: http://who.is/whois/bytecoin.org

No, I'm talking about CryptoNote Bytecoin not the SHA256 Bytecoin.
