Hello all,

I think that one of the way to make Bitcoin a success is to teach developers how to program it themselves, while keeping in mind the real problems they can fix with it.
Depending on public web API to do the heavy stuff is still useful, but oblige the user to look at the problem from someone else eyes.
It also block innovation, since users are stuck to what their API provider gives them, and provoke a mopya to the wild possibilities of Bitcoin.

I have way too much demand for work than I can give. However, I can spread what I know for free in a book.

My book is in public domain, and will be spread likely in 3 parts.
The first part is out now, and I am waiting for your feedback (and your work ! Smiley)

In the book, you will find coding challenges that you need to resolve to get access to the next parts when they will be out.

The range of difficulty will go from "how to create a private key", "how to make you transaction by hand, and sending by hand" to "how Dark Wallet works", "How to implement coin shuffle", "how to implement a voting system with colored coins"

Book link : https://aois.blob.core.windows.net/public/Blockchain Programming in CSharp.pdf

Nicolas,
Happy coding and make shit happens,

Thanks, I think the first part might be easy for you.
The next parts 2 and 3 will go deeper though. I will release a hard cover when I finished all the parts. Will also be in the public domain.

Don't hesitate if you have question Wink

I just finished to write about the HD Wallet and Dark Wallet part. (I updated the ebook)
I'm glad I can finally explain Dark Wallet clearly !! (well... I hope... I don't know if anyone could understand the first article about it I did several month ago oO)

Reading my old article, is like reading an old code... I am not even sure I even did it.

Well done! Glad to see you still working on your implementation. Very interesting and promising book.
BTW I've submitted the final stealth standard to Peter Todd ready for him to publish. There are some changes, but we'll have to wait for it to be published/reviewed. Here's the doc: https://github.com/genjix/bips/blob/master/bip-stealth.mediawiki

I overviewed the BIP, I don't see any breaking change about current version of Dark Wallet (the one published on the wiki), stealth address, prefix matching, key generations, OP_RETURN are always the same, am I right ?

Does multiple OP_RETURN will finally beb possible to batch more than one stealth payment in a transaction ?

Made me laugh when I saw your article with 60 vote + on reddit.

I announced it 3 days ago it has been completely ignored.
I guess that's the difference between a real good blogger and a nerd like me Cheesy
