I am writing a book which explains in simple terms what cryptocurrency is.  Bitcoin and another 49 altcoins will feature, with each coin having two pages within the book.  My facebook group gives more information:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cryptocurrency-The-Alt-ernative/285429871619708

One can vote for their favourite coin by donating a small amount of BTC.  If your favourite coin is not present, please message the group and we will create an address for it.

Why does 'alt-ernative' have a dash in it? Is it some other pun I'm not seeing, or did you really just expand 'alt' which is already short for 'alternative'?

In my mind, this seems similar to writing 'math-ematics'.

The dash is intentional  Wink it's an ambiguous title

If you are referring to the proposed cover, I intend to make it look better. I will get a friend I know to help me on this front.

Intentionally what though?

Ambiguously ambiguous... if there's some deeper meaning, I'm not seeing it.

"Alt" refers to altcoin
"The Alternative" refers to a currency other than fiat. The title means there is another way to do commence which does not involve paper money. A different path. Hope I am more clear.

I intend to have it published as an e-book first. Once interest is high enough, I will get paperback edition's published.

"Alt" refers to altcoin

Which is short for "alternative coin".

Sorry, I just personally find this strange, how you've expanded a contraction back to it's original word, but put a hyphen in it. Again, I say 'math-ematics' Huh
