As a (relatively) early adopted, the new price pump is making me feel generous... Who is smart enough to tell me what is wrong with this book cover? 0.5 BTC reward for the right answer.

"Mastering Bitcoin" by Andreas Antonopolous

Not sure to be honest. it's a typical o'reilly styled book cover.

Is it that the B in Bitcoin in the title is not a BTC? Wink

The question is not right how you made it.
What could be wrong, the color or the items painted there?
For me the color is not right, a logo of bitcoin maybe is missing etc..

It's not copyrighted
Why can it not be copyrighted? It is an authors words and the company O'Reilly paid for his/her's words so they can publish it.
If it can't be copyrighted what would stop you from stealing their words and writing a book of your own?  Wink

My God, I've never seen that cover before. It's really bad. My other beef with it is that it uses 'digital cryptocurrencies' instead of just cryptocurrencies. Is there such a thing as an analogue crypto?

It looks like the ants are holding a leaf with their mouths, and that is not how ants carry things.

If it is not that then it is something else to do with the ants

Ants are relevant in a any way to Bitcoin? Because I fail to find any analogy. But I there is nothing 'wrong' with ants of leaves, just a picture.
But after skimming though some more covers from this O'Reilly publisher I see that there is whole series of these awful animal themed covers.

The problem for me is that I never heard about analog cryptocurrencies - this is clear mistake imo.

The writer has ant in his name, hence the ants.

Another possibility might be that an early release featured as

"unlocking digital crypto-currencies" with a dash between crypto and currencies, which it does not feature anymore.

Ant's are considered the workers, miners if you will.
And yes O'Reilly loves to incorporate animals to all their technology books. They are relevant to the material to one shape or form.

I don't think the OP's question is regarding the picture at all but the wording of the title.

The ants give it a really awesome style, like the ants you will need work hard to get any bitcoins  Tongue

Anyhow, for me the wrong thing is that there is really no way to master Bitcoin, it cant be mastered. Sure you can learn one thing or two but you will never be the all mighty god of Bitcoin.

PS: Y u no BTC instead of B

Doesn't really matter. I like riddles, would just hate it if nothing was there to be found.

I just saw something by the way:

The title words are not aligned on the left. Rookie editing mistake.

The M in mastering does not align with the B of bitcoin, the line and the U of unlocking.

Ants don't carry leaves like that.
Copyrighted material twice
Copyrighted material on top barely visible
Unlocking should be Discovering or something like that
DIGITAL CRYPTOCURRENCIES should be CRYPTOCURRENCY or at best CRYPTOCURRENCIES if talking about more currencies
Words aren't well aligned.

...Do you guys really think he will pay 0.5 btc for this?

If he doesn't he is going to get negative trust.

But any way, my guess is that you can not "unlock" cryptocurrencies, but they must be "cracked".
As a play on words, so, the cover should say: "Cracking digital crypto-currencies", for the double meaning.

One meaning, to understand.
The other, to code break (which currently has not happened with Bitcoin private keys...yet)

I support a decentralized & unregulatable ledger first, with safe scaling over time.

1. many people favour the term 'blockchain currencies' when talking about bitcoin and all the alts using the same basic technology.. 'cryptocurrencies' seems off/geeky
2. what do blockchain currencies have to do with ants holding leaf's?
3. using 'unlocking' and ants.. gives the illusion its insecure and buggy as the hidden metaphor

that book cover really doesnt look appealing. if i had to guess your opinion I'd say that the colour scheme doesnt work well. and i dont understand how ants carrying leaves symzolizes bitcoin in any way.

o'reilly have always published stupid covers. here's why:

My answer is: Ants are really hardworking animals. But most of bitcoin investors are hoping to get rich easily.

Official explanation about ants: https://github.com/aantonop/bitcoinbook/blob/develop/preface.asciidoc#why-are-there-bugs-on-the-cover

Also; Book is Copyrighted. Quoting from Antonopoulos: (I've dm'ed him about translation print while translating the book)
Quote
The book is licensed CC-BY-SA. Anyone can publish it as long as they open source the translation too. Lookup CC-BY-SA

As a (relatively) early adopted, the new price pump is making me feel generous... Who is smart enough to tell me what is wrong with this book cover? 0.5 BTC reward for the right answer.

It looks like the ants are holding a leaf with their mouths, and that is not how ants carry things.

If it is not that then it is something else to do with the ants
Quickscammer you're damn right...

Ants are not holding those leaves and they still stand there. Also, most ants do not carry entire leaves.

The OP is clickbait so he can collect affiliate commission on all your amazon purchases over the next 3 days. That's also why its a newbie account so he doesn't have to make the 0.5btc payout once he's done

A member with newbie account promise to pay 0.5 btc for some stupid thing which may have many possible answer and everyone starts replying.Do you guys really think he will pay 0.5 btc for this?

Doesn't really matter. I like riddles, would just hate it if nothing was there to be found.

I just saw something by the way:

The title words are not aligned on the left. Rookie editing mistake.

The M in mastering does not align with the B of bitcoin, the line and the U of unlocking.
Ooh. It's too bad that you pointed that now. It's going to annoy me now. That's really noticeable now that I realize it!

The kerning is also now irritating me. The t and c in Bitcoin, and the s and t in Mastering.

well if he is saying 'Mastering Bitcoin' and then goes on to say digital cryptocurrencies on front page, it is a small b for bitcoin talking about it as a digital cryptocurrency
uppercase B for blockchain, coin and protocol
he may go and discuss everything in book, I am sure he must
but the cover description is a little conflicting and vague this way

BTW, the leaf taken by the ant (down) misses another segment (<<\<)

It seemed serious enough until about 11 replies in. Then it got stupidly redundant.
This thread is pooched and he is not going to pay.
Just another thread like "Find me these sunglasses" 2 weeks ago. 4 pages longs and OP never intended to pay nobody. Just a waste of everybody's resources, just like this one.  Undecided

Nope that is just the last part of the leg, covered from view by it's Gaster.  Grin ..... If I had to take a stab at it, I would point out that it has... what looks like little wings

on it's back... from my knowledge Leave cutter ants have no wings.  Huh If it is the queen... then she would not be doing the worker ants job.  Wink

Only reproductive ants, queens, and males, have wings. Queens shed their wings after the nuptial flight, leaving visible stubs, a distinguishing feature of queens.

It's just nice to see some quiz on the forum again.... scam or not, it's always fun.  Grin

I am curious if we will ever heard any news in this topic from OP. Either he is really rich early adopter who can give out 0.5 just like that or he is a troll.
If he really pay someone 0.5 BTC I would be genuinely amused. As I think that people gave all possible answers already.

The book is written by Andreas M Antonoupolous or is it that ants only have 6 legs whilst the cover shows 8 ?

interesting way of promoting your affiliate link

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency
singular
they say cryptocurrencies meaning more than just bitcoin. such as litecoin, darkcoin, and all the other alt coins out there. Which could not be explained in a 298 page book. Roll Eyes

Yeah. Isn't it meant to say cryptocurrency rather than cryptocurrencies. It is meant to be singular as Bitcoin is singular.

i don't like the ants with the pink color, it look as a bad combination to me, i would try to do a cover in matrix-esque instead, it much more in the bitcoin theme

Nope that is just the last part of the leg, covered from view by it's Gaster.  Grin ..... If I had to take a stab at it, I would point out that it has... what looks like little wings


Yeah right, It looks weird in 3D, i saw initially a 7th leg there.



Ok let's try another one.

The font of the "O'REILLY" is different that then title font. It should be the same.

1. unlocking digital crypto-currencies <- is wrong as concept and wrongly written.
2. the ants <- they have tails? their eyes are huge...


PS. Isn't this more suitable for "games and rounds"? Maybe it should be moved there.

The ants have too many segments.

That was my thinking too.  Head, thorax, and Abdomen.

A member with newbie account promise to pay 0.5 btc for some stupid thing which may have many possible answer and everyone starts replying.Do you guys really think he will pay 0.5 btc for this?
Did anyone else notice that this newbie account just turned Junior member while we were posting replies.
I think he got his reward from us posting on his topic that he started  Roll Eyes
His intention was certainly not to score activity points with this thread because he knew he would soon have all "red numbers " below his forum rank Cheesy

If the answer hasn't been said already, I'd like to point out that the leaves is the same size as the ants....
So book cover is not to scale? Or is this not what the OP is looking for? (IK, this is a really simple solution)

Right apart from my last two guesses about the proportions of the ants I would go for the obvious answer it isn't a book its a digital publication.

The ants thing again since they are Leaf cutter ants they are considered to be farmers because they harvest the leaves to make compost whilst Bitcoin has miners.

Let me give it a try. Nothing is wrong! Ants represent hardworking miners or people that are taking care of Bitcoin instead of the mighty bankers and government people that are just looking after their own a**!

Everything is just right in my opinion! Smiley

Ant carries leafs implies that bitcoin is a commodity that can be stacked and hoarded.

However bitcoin is a currency so there should be some other animal there that shows the spendable nature of bitcoin.

Is it the title itself "Mastering Bitcoin" being incorrect as nobody can truly 'master' bitcoin.

The ants give it a really awesome style, like the ants you will need work hard to get any bitcoins  Tongue

Anyhow, for me the wrong thing is that there is really no way to master Bitcoin, it cant be mastered. Sure you can learn one thing or two but you will never be the all mighty god of Bitcoin.

Or, have they used bitcoin instead of the blockchain?  as the cover refers to "Unlocking Digital Cryptocurrencies" which indicates more than the one currency and bitcoin is just one of the many Cryptocurrencies and if the book is about unlocking Cryptocurrencies then it should perhaps read "Mastering the Blockchain" "Unlocking Digital Cryptocurrencies"

That's all I have

Nothing wrong with the cover. Just that I don't understand what ants & leaves got to do with bitcoins.
The author already explained this. Just make a quick search on the net and you will find why

The color should be orange.

O'reily shouldn't be seen anywhere near anything you do, to be honest.

And instead of ants there should be miners. Smiley

Creative answers but no correct one so far.

They used ants instead of a honeybadger.



This is very close in the concept.. but no cigar

Hmm, maybe they used the wrong type of animal?



Although, I much prefer the honey badger Smiley

That's not a tail, it's the end of the rear right-side leg.

As said above, it should be an Alpaca. Or a pair of alpaca socks, or at least the BTC symbol.

The usage of ants would imply that we are all stupid little drones working for our corporate masters. They are probably right but I would prefer a big panda bear on the cover.

The book is comparing bitcoiners (us) to ants. This mean that this cover is seeing us as slaves that have no personal feelings and that work for a centralised authority, which can be can be the FIAT system.

On the other hand, if we see positively ants, the cover can tell that we are building strong structures (like ants nests, but here Bitcoin), small fragments by small fragments. Even if this is not something wrong, this is still my analysis of that cover and maybe it can inspire you Wink !

"What is this? A book for ants!?" (Zoolander). Sorry I had to do it.

With that being said, I can only speak of the book cover design since I'm a graphic designer. I know it's part of a series (O'Reilly) and animals are the unifying theme (plus same typography and different colors for each one) but I don't really how ants fit or communicate what Bitcoin is all about.

The way I understand it tries to communicate the skill of growing or accumulating Bitcoin. This is a perfectly valid idea and fits the whole animal theme I mentioned. The problem is the image of hard working ants communicates just that, hard work and a demanding read.

I would've used another animal for sure.

Ants are not decentralized. They are controlled by the queen.

Very good. That should be the answer if it isn't the correct one.

Ants aren't controlled by the queen.

Who or what are they controlled by?
Worker Ants are simple beings performing basic functions that ultimately supports the queen (and her eggs).
Even if the queen does not have true control over them, their existence is to her (and her eggs) service.

it seems that he is right, they only work together to support the colony, they have their own agenda, on what should be done, but it's not done primarily for the queen, they however protect the queen in the case it is needed

Since too many asking about ants, read this preface:

Quote
Preface :
Why Are There Bugs on the Cover?

The leafcutter ant is a species that exhibits highly complex behavior in a colony super-organism, but each individual ant operates on a set of simple rules driven by social interaction and the exchange of chemical scents (pheromones). Per Wikipedia: "Next to humans, leafcutter ants form the largest and most complex animal societies on Earth." Leafcutter ants don’t actually eat leaves, but rather use them to farm a fungus, which is the central food source for the colony. Get that? These ants are farming!

Although ants form a caste-based society and have a queen for producing offspring, there is no central authority or leader in an ant colony. The highly intelligent and sophisticated behavior exhibited by a multimillion-member colony is an emergent property from the interaction of the individuals in a social network.

Nature demonstrates that decentralized systems can be resilient and can produce emergent complexity and incredible sophistication without the need for a central authority, hierarchy, or complex parts.

Bitcoin is a highly sophisticated decentralized trust network that can support a myriad of financial processes. Yet, each node in the bitcoin network follows a few simple mathematical rules. The interaction between many nodes is what leads to the emergence of the sophisticated behavior, not any inherent complexity or trust in any single node. Like an ant colony, the bitcoin network is a resilient network of simple nodes following simple rules that together can do amazing things without any central coordination.

You can't master Bitcoin. Why would you title the book like that?

Bitcoin's economy and lifeforce is always changing, as are all cryptocurrencies. You can never master it because it is constantly dynamically shifting.

Also, ya don't usually see a leafcutter ant holding a stem. Smiley

As a (relatively) early adopted, the new price pump is making me feel generous... Who is smart enough to tell me what is wrong with this book cover? 0.5 BTC reward for the right answer.

"Mastering Bitcoin" by Andreas Antonopolous

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1449374042/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1449374042&linkCode=as2&tag=hocayoli-20&linkId=KRGAK7LJ7OSGJGN3

Ants are not decentralized. They are controlled by the queen.

Very good. That should be the answer if it isn't the correct one.

Ants aren't controlled by the queen.

Who or what are they controlled by?
Worker Ants are simple beings performing basic functions that ultimately supports the queen (and her eggs).
Even if the queen does not have true control over them, their existence is to her (and her eggs) service.

God save the Queen!


it seems that he is right, they only work together to support the colony, they have their own agenda, on what should be done, but it's not done primarily for the queen, they however protect the queen in the case it is needed

It may be true that they "only work together to support the colony,... its not done primarily for the queen...",

but according to http://www.pestworldforkids.org/pest-guide/ants/ (lol),:
Quote
When the queen of the colony dies, the colony can only survive a few months. Queens are rarely replaced and the workers are not able to reproduce.

Colony = Queen,
Queen = Colony

God save the Queen!

I support a decentralized & unregulatable ledger first, with safe scaling over time.

Could be that. Like I said, you don't see leafcutter ants holding stems. Smiley

If it is that, I wonder who would be credited. Wink Probably isn't though lol

Perhaps entire leaves, but you do very, very rarely see them with the stem. Perhaps every once in a blue moon, but not that often.

They definitely wouldn't hold them by the stem either.

Well in costa rica there are thousands of little shits swarming my yard and they get into my house too. Maybe I will take some photos next time I go back to see if any have stems.  X'D

I think people are not ants, Because ants are ruled by their queens and may be kings (Tongue Dont have that much knowledge) or in simple words, They don't have the freedom of choice. So the only thing wrong here in this case would be. That we are ants, And if don't have freedom we would never buy/read that book. Because of mind control and power.

So in that case it wrong.

The word "Mastering" is supposed to be above the purple box, like most (but not all) of the other O'Reilly programming books where there is a verb in the title.

Maybe that's the thing is wrong with the book cover. Because no relationship.

Maybe he meant mastering as mastering your knowledge on how it works, what it can do and what is happening with it currently.

IMO it is appropriate to put insects on the cover of a book only if the book is somehow biology-oriented. The cover looks very unappealing to me and I would never buy such a book.

I can understand if they made this cover because they were paid by Bitmain though.  Smiley

What's wrong with it? It's a book on software and it's covered in bugs!

The honey badger would eat all the bugs?  Undecided

Op was on earlier today but didn't look at this thread I presume this is nothing but trolling since he hasn't left a single reply here.
Probably. He only has 9 posts and claims to be an "early adopter"

 Ecologists call the ants "mutualists" because they cooperate with another species for mutual benefit. Each leaf-cutter species has its own mutualist partner, a fungus that it grows and cultivates for food and that in turn depends on the ants for food and shelter.

Mutualism is the way two organisms of different species exist in a relationship in which each individual benefits from the activity of the other. Similar interactions within a species are known as co-operation. Mutualism can be contrasted with interspecific competition, in which each species experiences reduced fitness, and exploitation, or parasitism, in which one species benefits at the expense of the other. Mutualism is a type of symbiosis. Symbiosis is a broad category, defined to include relationships that are mutualistic, parasitic, or commensal. Mutualism is only one type.

The instances of cooperation in nature far outweighs those of conflict. Take the honey badger and the honey guide bird for example. The bird leads the badger (or the human) to the bee hive full of honey and lets nature take it course. The bird then picks up the scraps.

This being the case it only makes sense to revise the cover of the book to include a honey guide bird and a honey badger. Also, as other users have pointed out a Bitcoin logo would also be good.

There's nothing wrong on the cover, you are just advertising the book  Smiley

(If i'm right, I hope it's for a greater good and not for your personal advantage)

I am sorry, but in my opinion, this book cover is so off.  Ants are not mining insects, they are colonists.  Some people get this confused when they think of ants because they dig into the earth.  When ants dig into the earth, they bring out dirt to complete their "paths", but they take in items such as leaves and such for food and storage.  Even though some mining companies are starting to use ants and termites to determine where gold deposits are locates, they are still not miners, they are colonists and always will be.  They would have been better putting a picture of a wood pecker or such on the book, those are real miners who "mine" trees for food.

I don't think that is why there are ants on the book?  Her last name has ants in it and I think they were just doing that.  Anyway did anyone actually figure out and receive the prize from this OP?

As a (relatively) early adopted, the new price pump is making me feel generous... Who is smart enough to tell me what is wrong with this book cover? 0.5 BTC reward for the right answer.

"Mastering Bitcoin" by Andreas Antonopolous

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1449374042/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1449374042&linkCode=as2&tag=hocayoli-20&linkId=KRGAK7LJ7OSGJGN3

Is it that there is no space between the "M." and the "Antonopoulos"? E.g., it is wrote "Andreas M.Antonopoulos" but should be "Andreas M. Antonopoulos".
