Hey guys,

I'm an infographic designer from Germany and I am currently working on an infographic about Bitcoins. I want to publish the finished version under a CC license online for everyone to use, with the goal to spread the word about bitcoins, to explain the concept to people, and to work against some of the false criticism against Bitcoin. I am convinced that doing so in a graphic can make this easier to understand, especially for not-so-tech-savvy-people.

Online I have found a few "infographics" on Bitcoins, but only one that is not just a bunch of random facts pieced together, namely this one:

Seeing this was really an important moment in my understanding of the system, but I want to take it a step further since this is mainly restricted to the technical part behind mining - I also want to talk about the implications of that system.

The graphic will consist of two parts, the history of Bitcoins, together with a few charts of the price development, volume etc. I believe my research in this area is pretty solid already.

The second part however is a flowchart that, ideally, should explain the system to someone who has not heard about Bitcoins before. I have put a lot of effort into the research over the last few weeks and came up with a lot of info, but i found it a pretty big challenge to put this in a clear, logical and linear storyline (Where do you start? And where do you go? And how do you manage to cover all the aspects in between without interrupting your storyline?)

I think I have come up with a pretty clear concept now; please not that this is not a design sketch, just a 'storyline' to organize myself. If you find spelling mistakes you can keep them ;-)

Now my reason for this post: This is a pretty big project for one person and I am doing this outside of my normal work hours. I am looking for people who support my idea and who want to contribute in whatever way. First of all a few questions regarding the project and the concept chart I posted above: What is your opinion? Do you think this does a good job of explaining how it works? Are there any mistakes? Is there any info missing?

If there is enough people who are interested in working on this, I would also like to share the rest of my research with you guys - there still is a few lose ends, also in the history of Bitcois, and I am still looking for some sets of data like development of difficulty from Jan 2009 until now.

I really hope this picks up and I think in this way we can definitely contribute to spreading the word about Bitcoins and clearing up with some of the false criticism that is pooping up everywhere!

Cheers,
LJE
