CRYPTOCURRENCY "THE ALT-ERNATIVE" A BEGINNER'S REFERENCE

(BOOK)

Facebook:         https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cryptocurrency-The-Alt-ernative-A-Beginners-Reference/285429871619708
Twitter:            https://twitter.com/MrSilverCider

For a few months I have been writing a book aimed at introducing beginners to cryptocurrency.  Since March 2014, I have devoted much of my time towards researching a total of 40 coins (including Bitcoin).  This book will also have other pages which define cryptocurrency terminlogy in a non-technical manner.  Besides these, factual tables, statistics and more will be included.  At the moment (20/11/2014) I have completed 39 coin sections with the following still incomplete:

Startcoin START



After the introduction, there are 20 sections based on the following topics:

a) What is Cryptocurrency?
b) Why does Cryptocurrency exist?
c) Why are there so many "alt" coins?
d) Is Cryptocurrency money?
e) What is mining?
f) The Blockchain
g) Proof of Work and Proof of Stake
h) The Wallet Client
i) The Block Time
j) The Block Reward
k) What is a Pre-mine?
l) Difficulty Re-targeting
m) Scrypt, SHA-256 and others
n) What is a 51% attack?
o) Community
p) Exchanges
q) Coin Developers
r) Purchasing Cryptocurrency
s) Advertising/Marketing
t) Anonymity

These won't necessarily be it the above order

Maybe you could make a text list of each of your altcoin addresses (which are pictured) so they can be easily copied and pasted. I liked the page and will be keeping track of your book's progress. Good luck with your project.  :)

Let me know if you guys who know your stuff agree with me but the only altcoins listed I've seen which have actually tried to be different are: Anoncoin, Primecoin, Litecoin, Peercoin and maybe Worldcoin

The rest are coins which are either direct copy and paste jobs of Litecoin or they are aggressive pre-mines or centralised systems, I do think there are possible a couple of extra ones out there that have the potential to change their code though with the devs behind them.

Post by: Lauda on February 24, 2014, 08:19:53 AM
No, you should definitely not mention these as most are copy coins.
Bitcoin and 4-5 coins that stand out is enough. Don't ruin your book.

Take Zetacoin too, It's inflationary form is rare in this market.
By now only Quark and Zetacoin are inflationary in the Top30 i think.

Nobody would be mining all these other coins after they have reached their ceiling

Quark isn't "undervalued".... In fact, no crypto currency can be "undervalued"... This isn't stocks and shares. They aren't attached to companies that have tangible / non-tangible assets.

Literally the ONLY determining value in any crypto coin is the market itself.. Its current value is a reflection of how the market feels about the coin.

If you were to ask me to invest in Quark, I'll ask you why? ...You'd then probably disgorge some over-enthusiastic rant about "intrinsic functionality"... I'd then tell you that, at this stage, no body cares about the "intrinsic functionality" of ANY coin.. Like it or not, people wan't to put in X amount of dollars and in two weeks cash out a XXX% return. Simples

Quark is dead in the water if you ask me.

Donīt want to wave the Quark banner but you are contradicting yourself. On the one hand you say that cryptocurrencies canīt be undervalued on the other hand you call Quark a dead project - which is saying that it is overvalued/has 0 value. The whole cryptoscene is dominated by chit-chat and self-fulfilling prophecies and you are just another example like the guy who says that Quark is undervalued.

Beyond that it is not true that cryptocurrencies have no tangible assets. Cryptocurrencies do not exist in empty space, they have (or havenīt) infrastructure that supports their use. The value of Bitcoin e.g. is founded mostly on the network, of the exchanges that list it, the apps that were written for it, even this forum contributes to a sustainable value of Bitcoin. Same goes with every other Altcoin. If your coin is intended to pump and dump only, like Pandacoin, you have mostly anything but trade. But there are many coin - and Quark is one of them - where you can see people actually working for the coin and developing cool projects. This, of course, doesnīt mean that this will be reflected in the price shortterm, but it will long term.

Quark has about 0.5% inflation per year now.  Over the long term, it's  not as inflationary compared to many of the other coins.

Erm, so you're saying that this "infrastructure" is what's driving the price of Bitcoin?... LOL, if that was the case then the price of Bitcoin would be much lower than it is now... what with the ever present specter of a 51% attack hovering over this "infrastructure" you speak of.

The first major Boom in the price of Bitcoin was brought about largely as a result of the Bank run in Cyprus - there may have been other catalysts, but overall it was that Bank run that took us to 1.2K.

Since then, the market has been driven by speculation in it's most potent form. China makes a few redundant statements, the weak hands sell their coins = the price falls.... GOX wont release our coins? = the price falls.... Oh, Walmart is now accepting Bitcoin?? = to the moon!... Sadly, no one cares about the bitcoin "infrastructure"..

And Quark is the most pathetic thing I've seen thus far... Dead in the waters!

There are many pathetic things in the altcoin community, with coin hating being the most pathetic.

You obviously didnt get the point of my argument.  I didnt say that the price was driven by infrastructure,  I said that infrastructure is a tangible asset which ensures a sustainable value. This value can be at a much lower rate as the current price but it will save those coins with infrastructure from disappearing after pump & dumps because there reasons to hold. With Quark many people invested in community projects and they are more likely to stick with the community then it is the case with coins where people just invested in the coin itself - see Pandacoin.

What coins do you hold and why? To make money or to work for the prospect of a different financial order?

That's agreeable...

I only "hold" Bitcoin.. everything else, I trade. I'm in this both for the prospect of financial advancement and to make money - as we all are I'd assume?

 This is gonna annoy some people, but most altcoins have almost no interesting or novel features. We have got to a stage where the only real differences are the number of coins to be issued and whether u have a panda or a penguin as mascot. Miners mostly don't even care about what they mine, as long as the diff is low.

NXT is not based on any existing code, and is building an insanely innovative financial eco-system.
Think Mastercoin/Ethereum/Ripple killer.....well worthy of a couple of pages in your book.
Heres 2000 pages to start u off:

I have created the above poll in order to find out which coins are most popular.  Not all coins will get into the book i am writing.  I want to the community to have a voice as concerns the content (50 coins only in the book)  :D

Megacoin should be in the book no matter how many or how little votes. Most coins have implemented the Kimoto Gravity Well, which originates from Megacoin. You cannot write a book and not mention such a widely integrated code.

So yeah, most coins have a piece of Megacoin in them  ;D

Wow. Voting and paying to get a coin listed somewhere. Now that's a new concept.

Anyway, I'll read your book as long as you don't include MAX in it.

Unless you put it in the "Greatest overpumped scam coins in the history of crypto" chapter.

Then again - most of the coins in your poll could fit in that chapter as well.

Goldcoin (GLD) is the one to watch this year. Many of the altcoins have taken a beating, but this one has been excessively hammered. When the bitcoin/altcoin recovery comes, I think this is the currency that's going to rocket.

I would put my money on Particle Coin. Seems like GoldCoin doesn't have that much innovation behind it and really is just another alt coin. The only benefit that i see with Gold Coin is the fact that it wasn't premined.

We need alt coins WITH CHANGES, not clones and mimics of successful coins.

Let me know if you guys who know your stuff agree with me but the only altcoins listed I've seen which have actually tried to be different are: Anoncoin, Primecoin, Litecoin, Peercoin and maybe Worldcoin

The rest are coins which are either direct copy and paste jobs of Litecoin or they are aggressive pre-mines or centralised systems, I do think there are possible a couple of extra ones out there that have the potential to change their code though with the devs behind them.
LOL, Litecoin is a Tenebrix clone...

Anyone who gives this guy money is a complete idiot.

How desperate can this forum get.

He just spammed every shit alt-coin thread asking for "donations" for a book he hasn't started to write.

What exactly is anyone expecting? A fully published - glossy finished - full colour book that any alt should be proud to be in and receives public attention??

Wake up - this guy is a clown.

I have been involved with cryptocurrency for over one year now.  I started the book weeks ago.  I am aiming to reach a wider audience through publishing.  I would appreciate it if you refrain from calling me a clown thank you.

All of us (i think) in the cryptocurrency space want to spread the message about this new technology, medium of exchange.  I am putting alot of time into contributing time and resources into a project which I feel adds to this message.  Many people who are aware of cryptocurrency are not participating in it or hold any coins of any sort.  I feel strongly that my finished book will introduce new comers and sceptics of cryptocurrencies so as to give them enough confidence to get involved :D

Hope this comment is clear and concise

Why you don`t send the form to the community's so they can fill them in for you ? It`s only 2 pages, and for the communities the most of the work is copy/paste !
After 1 month you haven`t done anything beside spreading around the zetacoin form on all the forums. Why didn't you give everybody a blanc form so they can fill it in for you.
I hope for you that you will succeed with your project but i have the feeling the book will only have 2 pages.

Goodluck for you

Yes I may get help from the community to fill in the details based on Zetacoin.  I have already completely written about 20 plus introductions and many pages before the 50 coin section.  I'm so hard pressed for time but I keep busy :)

Maybe you could make a text list of each of your altcoin addresses (which are pictured) so they can be easily copied and pasted. I liked the page and will be keeping track of your book's progress. Good luck with your project.  :)

This is a good idea, so you seem more convenient

DGB preliminary section.  I have been told that the launch date was the 12th of January 2014.  I need help with further important historical points, a block explorer website and further coin specification (transaction time, for example).  Any further suggestions are welcome.  Please consider donating towards the future publication of the book.  I expect it to be published in the summer.

I could get in as a result of one of the voted coins becoming inactive and lost.  RDD replaced VOLT as a result of RDD's popularity.  I will take your wish into account ;)

Hi, Tyke!

I know some of this has already been addressed on the Darkcoin thread, but I thought I'd reiterated it here as well.
Some suggested changes for your entry on Darkcoin:

1. Logo has been updated:
https://fpbj5a.dm2304.livefilestore.com/y2pybWGEyBby47Xum53K8Mj1Tlrf-vZpKJuCxCkr0HvJtSpm6CKLXaIGpejNaIFjoKERn4ON4dxfO7mVlhVJAmRSuTUF-ajB1cBZ8BoQ7l59dk/darkcoin_logo_template.png?psid=1 (https://fpbj5a.dm2304.livefilestore.com/y2pybWGEyBby47Xum53K8Mj1Tlrf-vZpKJuCxCkr0HvJtSpm6CKLXaIGpejNaIFjoKERn4ON4dxfO7mVlhVJAmRSuTUF-ajB1cBZ8BoQ7l59dk/darkcoin_logo_template.png?psid=1)
or

2. Should be "X11 Proof of Work" on the title page. Darkcoin does not use Scrypt.

3. Update to the History section:
"Darkcoin reached an all-time high on the 25th of May 2014 at a market cap of $65,409,487. At this peak, each DRK was worth 0.02681 BTC according to Mintpal."

Other than that, I think it looks pretty good. Keep up the good work!

Here is the first draft of the Hobonickel section of my book called Cryptocurrency "The Alt-ernative"  Please say if there are any mistakes or missing pieces of information or history.

I plan to get this book published this summer.  Please donate towards the project - Exe8wnqtA6y9kd1nrRg6Jx65NRZZ3btPWu

I am now starting to complete many sections.  IFC Infinitecoin and HBN Hobonickels are the standard now for all 50 coins.  It is likely that the format will improve now.  It did not before as I did not know what the content would be.  Any support towards this project is welcome.

I am going to get some sleep.  I only got 3 hours sleep last night before work. Talk soon.

OP, its funny that you list ybcoin (an exact clone of YAC, though they haven't been keeping up) or any other scrypt N coin instead of the original which is Yacoin.

Any serious reference work should certainly document the originator of Scrypt N and SHA3.

All coins which were voted for on the 16th of March have made it through.  VOLT was replaced by REDD due to VOLT's short life and very low activity.  If you can point out a coin from the current 50 that has little to no activity, then private message me.

I think you shouldn't write about every Clonecoin, which will be forgotten at the end of this year. Innovative, that are here to stay, should be the topic. Projects like Ethereum or the CryptoNote technology. Especially latter is an extremely sophisticated and promising technology and with Monero one of the most active developed ones. It offers true anonymity through ring signatures and stealth addresses and has also an innovative algorithm which offers egaltarian proof of work. You shouldn't waste time on coins like Innfinitecoin, they will be forgotten in half a year and when remembered, then as another clone coin

I am a bit disappointed I do not see Riecoin - there is no other such cryptocurrency with CPU only miner available and with proof of work actually proving mathematical hypothesis

This is a nice project. Sent a Digitalcoin donation. Makes sense that you'd post a version with text mostly hidden so that your work won't be copied before it's published.  Please PM me with the final version of the Digitalcoin pages, here or on the Digitalcoin forum, so I can do a final review.

TT

OK thank you.  I am going to go over the pages again within the next two weeks.  I will then discuss the content with you afterwards.

Thank you for your support.  

P.S. Are you aware of any outlets from which I can strongly promote this publication?  

It's so difficult to recoup your investment on things like this. Are you planning on distributing hard copy or electronically? I think you must distribute electronically, so why should I buy it when I know one of my friends will get it and just send me a copy? I think the question is more "what to promote" instead of "where to promote". Where you should promote is on banner adds on sites frequented by crypto enthusiasts. I'd help with a list, but I'm sure you're familiar with dozens. More important is what you're promoting.

It seems that you're creating a one time publication, and you'll sell it when it's done. You should sell it as a subscription, 1year paid in advance, where each month the subscriber gets maybe 4 new pages, and updates to previously published pages. Maybe the whole thing could be one pdf being the cover, intro, background, definitions, etc, then each coin would be a seperate pdf.

This will be an excellent piece of reference material, it will stay current, and will also have historical significance as many of the coins you document disappear. You should stress this.

Finally, I've known about this project for weeks at least, but I have yet to hear how I can order one. you should get an ordering mechanism in place right away.

TT

These sections remain to be completed:

Britcoin BRIT
Fedoracoin TIPS
Feathercoin FTC
Franko FRK
Litecoin LTC
Megacoin MEC
Novacoin NVC
Peercoin PPC


This means that after I complete TiPS (Fedoracoin) tonight, only 7 out of the total 41 are left to work on.  This is very encouraging :D

Once all sections are complete, I can expand on the introductory pages before the section pages.  In addition, I will be adding more fact pages at the end of the book.  A lot to look forward to
