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

(BOOK)

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 41 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 (03/10/2014) I have completed 37 coin sections with the following still incomplete:

Feathercoin FTC
Franko FRK
Novacoin NVC
Peercoin PPC


Old Bitcointalk thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=483187.0


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

Can I ask where you are based. I myself am creating a Crypto Guide, mainly focused on a few upcoming cryptos I am looking at delivering it free across the area I live in then through the UK via supermarkets / shops etc.

I like the look of your guide does it cover the fundamentals of mining, exchanges, wallet security etc? Or is it just based on the cryptos themselves?

I am based in the UK.  It covers the basics of what mining is in a non-technical sense.  It defines terms such as block reward, block time, mining algorithm and so on.  Basically, it is just an introductory text for beginners with 41 coins included.

Can i suggest for the cover colour say "gun metal grey" (or like) instead of bright red?

colour matters to humans, so red says -

 "i'm really desperate for you to buy me I'm in a $2 shop"

and Grey says:

 "this is a book with information in it"


try it out and display the results.

It is my first project.  I am very happy with it considering the limited resources I had.  It is a very historical book covering history of 38 cryptos upto the end of 2014.

Ehmmm, it seems you only included coins that donated for your book, is that right? Because I see that you ommited at least major coin that was available in 2014, don't ask me which one, you should know it if you're writing books about crypto currencies... I'm also curious how up-to-date information in paper book can be?

No that is not true.  I held a vote for the community to choose which coins they wanted.  Please elaborate on which coin/coins were omitted?

This is awesome for newbies in the altcoin world. I believe in this ICO bc they are aiming to make crypto easier to enter with their novice friendly UI and the first ever arbitrage exchange that will allow for less market volatility which keeps so many inexperienced and afraid people on the sidelines. Arbitrage will provide a better way to profit on any coin.
