Grammar errors, my friend.

I'm glad you were so specific.

I'm sorry! Just got to work. Here's a glaring example:

Page 8 - Introduction

"Moreover, during the design of the application, the security features of the Bitcoin network and infrastructure is to be analysed."

it should be

Moreover, during the design of the application, the security features of the Bitcoin network and infrastructure are to be analysed.

edit:

Page 10 - 2.1

"Cryptography is the discipline of writing a message in ciphertext with the aim of protecting a secret from malicious or unauthorised parties."

"Professional cryptography protects not only the plaintext, but also the key and the cryptosystem as a whole."

2.1.1

Encryption and decryption – algorithms focusing on the mapping of plaintext into ciphertext and vice versa [1], used mainly to ensure data confidentiality.

Thank you for your proofreading. English isn't my native language.

I couldn't make it much further than that, due to this silly stupid thing called work, but it wouldn't hurt to get someone to proofread the whole thing for you.

Thank you anyway. Before submitting it I got my wife to read it once or twice (she's Canadian). I guess it's not 100% perfect, but when I'm correcting my supervisor correcting my English, I think there isn't much more need for more proofreading.

ThePiachu: what do you think about this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=122240.0) solving "Partial address collision" problem?

Hmm, it could solve some issues, providing the image collisions are improbable.

I guess if one would incorporate the images into a website and a client it could make address substitution less likely. Say, the client would be displaying the image once the user would enter the address into the client. Without an integration into the client it might be a bit hard - I doubt most of the users would bother checking the website by themselves and one could always temper with some third party checks.

Yes, your right. If it would be a part of payment process it's more likely there will be any use of it. Maybe developers will find the idea to be good and include it in a new version of client. We will see...

Hope you'll enjoy the reading. I'd like to apologize for the use of polish at the start (it was a requirement), and for some boring introduction of basic things (also a requirement).

Donations welcome:

I'm sending a little for page count alone, even if much of it was index and references.. Someday when I have time to read it, maybe I'll send more if it's good Wink..

I am writing my Bachelors thesis regarding Bitcoin. It would be much shorter and less detailed than yours obviously. On page 20, you talk about the Bitcoin ecosystem. Where did you get this definition from? I thought it referred to businesses,institutions etc which exist/thrive due to Bitcoin. You can get some idea on what i'm talking about:

BTW your thesis has been pretty useful, since you have explained the working of Bitcoin quite well. I will give credit to your work when my thesis is complete. Thanks Smiley

It's easy to pick holes in other peoples work especially when you just put on the grammar Nazi hat. I'd like to see one of your pieces of work.

As far as I remember I defined the "Bitcoin ecosystem" term myself, I don't remember seeing it being used anywhere before I published my thesis.

I personally don't mind a good spell checker. If I ever want to update my thesis PDF I will have all the typos and mistakes in one place for easy reference Wink.

Indeed! I didn't realise it had been dug up. Just seemed interesting.

Because, without the Grammar Police, the world would implode, and any currency would become irrelevant.

Why the frell so many retards spell "ect" as an abbreviation of "Et Cetera"? "ETC", DAMMIT! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Et_cetera
