You made a very good thread, honestly. However, I saw you also made another thread in your local board, and you only translate a few first lines of the thread into Filipino language; the rest part (most of the thread) has not been translated.
I doubt that you likely violate forum rule. This one:
Quote
12. No duplicate posting in multiple boards (except for re-posting it in the local language boards if it's translated).
So, to avoid this, I suggest you to do something:
- Leaving a note that it has been under-translation
- Lock your topic in local board.
- Translate all contents into your local language
- Unlock it only when you finish your translation.

You have been very close to your next rank, so please be careful.
Best,

You are welcome, fella. I simply warned you that you should take care of yourself. Sometimes, we started with good purposes for forum members (locals in your case), but sometimes it turns into bad one (unexpected, unknown forum rule violations). I have seen some Legendary accounts get banned due to their past unintentionally mistakes (like Limx Dev), so we should be careful ourselves. Fortunately, Limx Dev unbanned, but I am not sure that we will have luck like this. Even we have chances like Limx Dev, we will obviously have to experience very tough period before our cases solved. Prevention is better.

How and where did you manage to gather all such data? I know that hard work pays off, but this one's a lot of smart work done here with each and every single thing detailed to us showing what Bitcoin used to be as an infant and what it is presently - a beast.
Most are them written on the source provided by OP but he added some details to make it better.


P.S.: Are we allowed to translate this in our local language and publish in our local section with a link referring to the original content here?
I guess that's alright, everyone does this, however just wait until op's confirmation.

Looks to me like he put a lot of work in.  I enjoyed reading through much of it.

Copy pasting everything from http://historyofbitcoin.org/ is definitely a lot of work! Why people give merit to copy-paste topics like this confuses me.

Great work, is the website link you provided on 'history of bitcoin' a website you host too?

You could make it ongoing with a new thread 2014 to present.

I want to, but I cannot do it this time because I will become busy these coming days.
Come on now. You can't because historyofbitcoin.org only has information up to exactly the date in your topic.

The historical topic on bitcoin is basic but important for crypto newcomers, like me. I appreciated yazher's time to make the thread. Reading it contains lot of time, but honestly it is worthy  my reading time because after reading it I have more comprehensive understanding on history of bitcoin.
