CRYPTOCURRENCY "THE ALT-ERNATIVE" A BEGINNER'S REFERENCE

(BOOK)

Facebook:         https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cryptocurrency-The-Alt-ernative-A-Beginners-Reference/285429871619708
Twitter:            https://twitter.com/MrSilverCider

For a few months I have been writing a book aimed at introducing beginners to cryptocurrency.  Since March 2014, I have devoted much of my time towards researching a total of 40 coins (including Bitcoin).  This book will also have other pages which define cryptocurrency terminlogy in a non-technical manner.  Besides these, factual tables, statistics and more will be included.  At the moment (20/11/2014) I have completed 39 coin sections with the following still incomplete:

Startcoin START



After the introduction, there are 20 sections based on the following topics:

a) What is Cryptocurrency?
b) Why does Cryptocurrency exist?
c) Why are there so many "alt" coins?
d) Is Cryptocurrency money?
e) What is mining?
f) The Blockchain
g) Proof of Work and Proof of Stake
h) The Wallet Client
i) The Block Time
j) The Block Reward
k) What is a Pre-mine?
l) Difficulty Re-targeting
m) Scrypt, SHA-256 and others
n) What is a 51% attack?
o) Community
p) Exchanges
q) Coin Developers
r) Purchasing Cryptocurrency
s) Advertising/Marketing
t) Anonymity

These won't necessarily be it the above order

Nice idea!

Maybe you could make a text list of each of your altcoin addresses (which are pictured) so they can be easily copied and pasted. I liked the page and will be keeping track of your book's progress. Good luck with your project.  Smiley

Cool idea, but I don't think someone should be required to make a donation to vote for a certain coin.  Why not just open a free poll?

There are not anywhere close to 49 coins on that list that deserve a mention, much less 2 pages.

Almost all of these altcoins don't need 2 pages. All they need is "cloned Bitcoin/Litecoin source, changed a few numbers".

Let me know if you guys who know your stuff agree with me but the only altcoins listed I've seen which have actually tried to be different are: Anoncoin, Primecoin, Litecoin, Peercoin and maybe Worldcoin

The rest are coins which are either direct copy and paste jobs of Litecoin or they are aggressive pre-mines or centralised systems, I do think there are possible a couple of extra ones out there that have the potential to change their code though with the devs behind them.

No, you should definitely not mention these as most are copy coins.
Bitcoin and 4-5 coins that stand out is enough. Don't ruin your book.

I dont agree here.
Take Zetacoin too, It's inflationary form is rare in this market.
By now only Quark and Zetacoin are inflationary in the Top30 i think.

Nobody would be mining all these other coins after they have reached their ceiling

Most Coins are Shitcoins
