Is there a copy somewhere of the old bitcoin forum?

I would like to read early discussions and banter.

    If you're talking about the forum that used to be at forum.bitcoin.org, then it's the same forum as the one at bitcointalk.org. Are you referring to some other forum? – Nick ODell Feb 8 '13 at 2:31

    The very old SourceForge forum was lost AFAIK, but there weren't many posts there. – theymos Feb 8 '13 at 23:59

There have been a number of deletions, but most threads and replies are still intact.

Change any URL forum.bitcoin.org/XXXX to bitcointalk.org/XXXXX or bitcoin.org/smf/XXXXX to bitcointalk.org/XXXXX


It seems https://bitcointalk.org/ has the posts since November 22, 2009. For example, all satoshi's posts are here (user id u=3).

Regarding earlier posts, in satoshi's first post in bitcointalk.org he refers to an "old forum":

Welcome to the new Bitcoin forum!

The old forum can still be reached here:

I'll repost some selected threads here and add updated answers to questions where I can.



and some people wrote that it's here: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=bitcoin-list
