I think you'd find a lot more people interested in buying your book for $1 if they could pay using Bitcoin, especially on here. I'm not familiar with the website you're using, I imagine you have to use a card for the purchase? Anyways good luck!

Yeah, whats the point of making a Bitcoin book if you are going to sell it with the regular currency? To help Bitcoin usage if not exclusively sold on BTC I would at least accept BTC payments, just set an address, dont even need Bitpay.

The book is available for purchase with bitcoin.

If you are curious as to what the book entails. Read an excerpt here: Bitcoin Will End the Nation State

Cool cover
And, how to get the book for $1? Should I PM you first?

Thanks for the complement. I spent WAY too much time putting the cover together.

If you use the coupon code 'bitcointalk', you will get a 90% discount bringing your total down to $1.
143  Economy / Digital goods / For the Next 48 Hours I'm Giving Away My Bitcoin Book for $1 on: August 20, 2015, 05:11:50 AM

use code 'bitcointalk'

Hey guys,

I've decided to release my book on bitcoin entitled Bitcoin: An Internet of Money for $1 for the next 48 hours to the bitcointalk community.

This publication is essentially the culmination of some of my work into the bitcoin space, and is an attractive piece for bitcoin enthusiasts, investors, entrepreneurs, writers, and researchers. If you are someone who wishes to gain an understanding not just of bitcoin, but the larger trend towards decentralization and digital money, this book is for you.

The book begins by examining the basics of bitcoin, then gets into the political-economics implications of the separation between the state and money. This transformation is one which will cause massive implications on the way we work and live. Anyone who purchases a copy of this book will get newer versions as they are released.

I like Borderless Money: How Bitcoin Will Bring About the End of the Nation State Era but it doesn't have the emphasis on Bitcoin so I voted for the second option. 

Thanks for the feedback.

I like 'The Bitcoin Revolution' too, but am not sure someone can call anything revolutionary while it is still being adopted, only from a  historical perspective does it make sense.
I think you're right, maybe something along the lines of "The Bitcoin effect: Money without Borders"

I added an option to the poll: The Bitcoin Era: An Internet of Money

What do you think of that?

Make sure you understand throughly of bitcoin. We've got enough shitty authors trying to catch the "trend" already

Frankly if you asked what the book title should be, i dont think you understand crap.... So please educate yourself first.

This is called market research. Businesses do it all the time.

Perhaps you should try reading the book before leaving such a shallow comment?
147  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I'm Writing a Book on Bitcoin ... on: August 17, 2015, 06:25:42 AM
"the revolution of economy: bitcoin", would be better.
do you mind of alt coins? they help the bitcoin too.
likely your book would not be really popular in the preliminary publishing.
let's see how you do.

I don't talk at length about alt-coins in the book. I make a case for only investing in those with a specific use case.

Thanks for the advice and comments.

 Bitcoin: An Internet of Money
 The Bitcoin Revolution: An Internet of Money

No.

It's an Internet of Money.
149  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / I'm Writing a Book on Bitcoin ... on: August 17, 2015, 01:22:05 AM
Thank you for all who vote!

If you have another suggestion, please leave it in the comments here. If you're interested, you can buy an early copy of the book and have the updated versions emailed to you automatically!

All hail the great anonymous wizard Satoshi Nakamoto.

Interesting and valid point of view. But i can't see the importance of this observation tho. In what way does it matter if the currency is moved?
Also, it doesn't much differentiate from moving the fiat from account A to account B, until you make a withdraw.

cheers

Thanks for the comment.

What the article is trying to express, is the fallacy of many existing firms approaching this technology with a 20th century mindset. We were recently in NYC for a bitcoin bankers conference, and there was endless discussion about "separating bitcoin from the blockchain" and how "blockchain is the real innovation, not bitcoin".

Simply put, this article attempts to illustrate why this is not feasible and why many firms and enthusiasts are not looking at this concept of money in the correct light.

I don't agree with the article that bitcoin is a stock, a share of ownership in this decentrailsed autonomous corporation. A real stock is a share of a company who has a business model and pays dividend. Bitcoin has no business model, do not make profits, and pays no dividend. Bitcoin is a very liquid commodity which functions like a currency.

Bitcoin pays dividends in the capital gains of each unit of currency.

The business model is a trustless, electronic payment system.

When an individual makes a transaction on the bitcoin network, no actual currency is moved. That is, no file has moved. No commodity or asset has moved. No private or public key has moved. Rather, the only thing which changes is the percentage of the blockchain ledger which User A & B claim control over. When a transaction occurs in the realm of bitcoin, the image of the blockchain is altered. Nothing ever changes but the composition of the blockchain record.

The blockchain is a recorded snapshot of the bitcoin digital economy.

Money is now an image, rather than something which can be separated from the system itself. This image of money is being constructed, altered, and verified by the thousands of machines acting as miners across the globe, and it’s a composition on public display for all to see. The miners are the painters of this network composition. The users, the brush and strokes.

IT’S A CURRENCY… IT’S A COMMODITY… NO, IT’S CRYPTOCURRENCY

Cryptocurrency is a financial asset in a class of its own. In truth, it is a combination of all the aforementioned traditional assets: currency, commodity, and stock.

Cryptocurrency is not exclusively a currency because, as is with the bitcoin payment system, it represents a paradigm shift in our concept of money – one where there is no division between currency and the system which it flows through. Furthermore, the current rate of volatility of bitcoin makes it unsuitable as a sound form of money, although it has the potential to act as an remarkable monetary tool as stabilization continues to take effect.

Cryptocurrency is also not exclusively a commodity. In comparison to gold, bitcoin shares many characteristics of scarcity and indestructibility. However, it gains the potent attributes of perfect divisibility and high portability. Bitcoin may accurately be considered a form of digital gold.

What's going on with all these new Bitcoin groups? I have seen several invites in the last few weeks to join some Facebook groups, now this group that connects you with LinkedIn!

I mean are these only the individuals who are organizing this or is there something bigger and better hidden behind this?

Can we keep something between just me and you? You're clearly on to something.

What were are planning to do here is get a bunch of the bitcoin users in one group, expose them, then capture all their personal information. This is actually just a front for that very purpose.

Once we have all this accomplished, we will download spyware onto their computer and steal all their bitcoin.

But please, don't say anything.
155  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Starting a Bitcoin Networking Group (And You're Invited) on: August 07, 2015, 08:02:36 PM
Is there activity in the group Huh Most of the content comes from you just sharing news (not even a personal comment). Looks even worse than G+ BTC groups (opinions on news and lots of referral spam).

I do not have a LinkedIn profile, though (I have been thinking on opening an account, but I do not have the time to manage it as it should be).

The group is very new so it takes some effort on my part to kickstart the group with postings, comments, etc.

It is my hope as more people join, it will take on a life of its own.
156  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Money is Now An Image on: August 07, 2015, 07:05:58 PM
for some reason this has reminded me of my usb miner prediction and damn that came true so fast


Not sure what you're talking about but would be interested if you could elaborate.
157  Bitcoin / Meetups / Toronto Bitcoin Mastermind Group on: August 07, 2015, 05:17:59 PM
Hi Guys,

I am putting together a regular bitcoin meetup in the Toronto area and am looking for collaborators and enthusiasts. Ideally, this group would meet weekly or every 2 weeks to discuss bitcoin from a business/economic perspective and also some of the software development of bitcoin technologies.

I already have a meetup group going here: http://meetup.com/diginomics

And a website going here: https://diginomics.com

If you are interested in helping out and growing the group, I am looking for the follow:

  • Meetup venue we can use regularly, conductive to presentations
  • Someone skilled with video, multimedia, and live streaming
  • Someone skilled with event marketing and general coordination

If you know anyone who also might be interested, send them my way. You can send me a PM on here, or reply in this thread.
158  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Starting a Bitcoin Networking Group (And You're Invited) on: August 07, 2015, 05:09:39 PM
I see that to be member of this group must be member of LinkedIn. I don't understand why this condition. The people that don't have LinkedIn account doesn't deserve to part of this bitcoin community? What make special someone with LinkedIn account? I don't have one and I will not have one. LinkedIn is very annoying and don't serve for nothing. Sent every moment emails with updates and this is boring. So, good chance with this group and may your bitcoins grow up every moment.

If you are interested in joining our bitcoin community, PM me your email and I can add you to the list.
159  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Money is Now An Image on: August 07, 2015, 05:07:43 PM
I think "trustless" is not a valid term to use. The word trustless implies no trust at all, when we are trusting the network itself, we are are trusting the network will not screw us over like centralization does. Sure it's a bit picky of an observation but i think there's something that isn't 100% accurate about what the word trustless really tries to convey in this context.

This is true. We are in fact trusting the network 100% not to go belly up. (or 51% attack)

Hi Guys,

I've been quietly putting something together for the last little while, and I wanted to share it with the BitcoinTalk community here. Essentially, what I am offering for free here today in exchange for joining our online community, is a investment report on bitcoin and the state of cryptocurrency for the year of 2015.


Here's what you can expect:

  • Bitcoin Value Assessment
  • Cryptocurrency as a Tax Haven
  • Blockchain Technology Can Transform Banking
  • Costs & Benefits of Phasing Out Physical Money

And here's a brief description:

2015 has brought with it a host of developments within the bitcoin industry. Most notably is the recognition of blockchain technology to power frictionless payments from institutional players in finance such as NASDAQ, the NYSE, and Citibank which are all actively making moves to position themselves in this emerging digital economy – one where opportunity is ripe for the individuals and teams who claim an early stake in this realm of borderless, digital commerce.

In this bitcoin value report, Travis Patron outlines some of the emerging trends of adoption we can expect to see in the financial industry while anticipating what may lead bitcoin to act as a global tool of payment in the coming months and years.

Get your hands on this free report and understand why companies and individuals are staking their claim in a new, 21st century digital gold rush.
