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

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

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.

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?

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".
