Hello folks,

I started this about a year ago and finally made the push to get it done.

The eBook covers everything you need to know before you start hashing for the first time. Here is the free download page:

https://www.coindl.com/page/item/201

I've discovered that getting an ISBN for a single eBook is $125 so I'm trying to raise ~25 BTC in donations to purchase an ISBN and make the eBook available to a much wider audience. You can donate through CoinDL(preferred since there's a digital private record of it) or via the address on the front page(let me know >5mins beforehand how much you're sending).

What will you get for your donation? I plan to record an audio version that you'll receive a download link for and if interest is high enough I'll do a virtual book signing by sending you a personal note including the eBook via signed gpg in email.

I'll post a summary of total donations at the end of the weekend. Thanks for checking it out!

Having a read through it. I like how you took the time to write about a subject that interests you.

p.s. I'd ask a few freelancers to copy-edit the text for spelling and grammar errors ✄.

Publish it through a POD like Createspace or Lulu. They will take care of the ISBN  and printing. You can even get a Kindle ebook.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Good suggestions. I'll take a look.

And to BitAvenue, I did have a few people proofread it but no heavy editing process was undertaken for this edition. If it wasn't now it might have been another few months...

Curious, what advantage is there in getting an ISBN? Can't you just torrent this and post links? Or are you looking to print it and you need an ISBN?

I think there is value to being listed in Amazon, Lulu, and others so more people might happen upon it. Beyond that, ISBN is how librarians and others find titles they're looking for.

You are welcome Charlie. I kept thinking as I was writing it... "I'm dying to know how it ends!" Tongue
