Altcoin Investigation 2020_02

About the Book

The intent of the book is to solve three problems :

  1. Most people are not aware of the business problems which could be solved should an altcoin become widely used
  2. Most people find it difficult to distinguish between honest altcoin projects and dishonest ones (i.e. scams)
  3. Should an altcoin fail to succeed in the market, which is highly likely given the high attrition rate of startups, the methods proposed to solve business problems in the altcoin's whitepaper may be easily forgotten. It is possible that the methods are sound and could be implemented by a later, successful altcoin project.

The author's DYOR (which in cryptocurrency circles means "Do Your Own Research") is presented in the book. He makes no claims as to whether he personally believes that a particular altcoin should be supported or shunned; instead he merely presents the data, fully sourced, so that the reader can more easily use that data to either make up her mind about the coin or to supplement her own DYOR.


This book is re-published on an ongoing basis, with the price increasing for every 50 pages of research added. Once you have purchased the book at the current price you receive free updates to it, regardless of how many pages are added - thus it makes sense to purchase the book early. You can also get your money back after 45 days if you are not satisfied.
