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

Well I wasn't trying to steal your spotlight, I just wanted to raise some awareness about your book Smiley

But I'm glad it is getting some attention, we need more books like this Smiley

once the second and third book are available, please let me know via email (jdebunt@cryptoarticles.com) Smiley

Ahah no that's fine, I'm glad you managed to get attention, I'll send you a tip please give me your address. Wink
I did not managed to get the spotlight anyway, saying you stole it is far fetched. Cheesy
I'll send you the mail. Smiley

Just paid. I wish you had put a QR code so it could be scanned, I had to type in your wallet address.

Edit: i paid as soon as i got to the payment page, now that i am past i realize that i had to pay via exercise and OP_RETURN, I hope the outcome of you getting paid being the same in both methods makes both approaches valid Wink

Wow, nice job. Thank you for this excellent book, Nicolas Dorier.
I'm addicted to C# and I like the brilliant idea of blockchain. Now your book combined both of them. Am I dreaming?  Cheesy Cheesy Grin Grin

Looking forward for the last 2 parts!

The challenge is for the fun, the next part will be public anyway. (but those who managed to do the challenge will get it first... but since they will share it, it won't last long Smiley)

I have seen you payment, if you want to do the challenge, I can refund it to you, and you send them back with the OP_RETURN.
Just give me a signed message I verify your are the owner of the address if you want the refund and try the challenge. (very easy)

Not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but I need some help...

I just found this book, and I'm really excited to get started! I am familiar with Java and Visual Studio, but have ZERO C# experience. In visual studio, after I install the reference NBitcoin, the bitcoin keywords (Key, PubKey, BitcoinAddress... etc) are not highlighting as reserved/recognized keywords... Is there a step I am missing? The microsoft forum was completely useless...  Undecided

I get this error when trying to debug:

Error   1   Cannot embed interop types from assembly 'f:\Bitcoin\ProgrammingBitcoin1\packages\NBitcoin.1.0.7.18\lib\net45\NBitcoin.dll' because it is missing either the 'ImportedFromTypeLibAttribute' attribute or the 'PrimaryInteropAssemblyAttribute' attribute   f:\Bitcoin\ProgrammingBitcoin1\packages\NBitcoin.1.0.7.18\lib\net45\NBitcoin.dll   ProgrammingBitcoin1

I switched the embed interop typse back and forth from true and false, but the keywords still don't highlight, and i get a different error for each keyword saying the namespace cannot be found.

You need to include the "namespace" with the "using" keyword. (packages is java's equivalent)

You can do it, it is public domain. Smiley
It is far from being finished though. It only covered the first part which is yet the tip of the iceberg. Also, my english is not perfect it is under review.

Meanotor , since some other people sent some tips without OP_RETURN, I decided that I needed to show them some love on http://blockchainprogramming.azurewebsites.net/
However, they are referred as "Lazy Donators". Wink

Hey, sure go ahead the value of my work increase every time someone shares it. (It is why it is free by the way Wink)

I am writing the second part, I intend to release in beginning of March.
I will do some cool stuff with colored coins, and will connect to the network for more interesting stuff. I will also talk about SPV.

The last part, the third will go on more advanced topics like micro payment channels with OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY, share coin, and how to implement a hub for asking transaction signature accross several participants. (multi sig or not)

By the way I updated the book several time since the beginning, so if you downloaded it long time ago, re download it to get the updated part.

A very interesting and impressive step here Mr Nicolas, have you considered translating the currently published book and/or future ones into other languages ? is that even a possibility ?

At any given topic, at any given day and at any given circumstance, you will never know about anything more than me.

My time is better spent coding and writing about what I know, so I won't translate it myself, even in my own language.

However, since the book is public domain, if someone wants to do it and publish it himself commercially or not, I'm fine with it, as long as he gives me credits for as the author.

So the question is more : does a good translator will do it ? And I have no idea, but this is a possibility.
Also, the book will change a lot until I finished the 3 parts, so it does not make sense to start translating right now.

Even NBitcoin changes as I write. This is a funny thing that I find way to improve NBitcoin only when I write about it. When I struggle explaining some concept, most of the time, it forces me to refactor stuff in NBitcoin to explain more easily.

Yeah , looking at the screenshots that you posted (if you took them your self) I will say you are from France probably .
I have no problem translating this eBook to be honest to Arabic,French (since it's in english right now) but I guess I will wait till the three parts comes out , I guess it will be a good timing because I will probably finish my studies and be in holiday once you finish the book . so just let me know .
