In 2019 I want to create an educational book about the lightning network. This book should mainly target developers who want to make use of the lightning network. However I will also try to make this book useful for anybody who is interested in the Lightning Network and Bitcoin in general. As far as I know no book about the lightning network exists and no one has bothered to create one yet. In the last year I have started to publish youtube videos which should educate people about the lightning network for which I have received some great feedback.
As it was always my childhood dream to write a technical book. Since I like education in general and in particular about the lightning network I would love to spend at least one year full time on this project. BTW I have been active in education for the last 10 years.
If the campaign is successful and running well I will write the book in an open process with a creative commons license on my github page https://github.com/renepickhardt/The-Lightning-Network-Book and continue to produce Youtube videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/RenePickhardt which will also be referenced inside the book. Also I will occasionally contribute to the lightning network protocol or its implementations to stay up to date with the required knowledge to write the book.
I think it would be another great success for the community to crowdfund the symbolic value of 21.21212121 Bitcoin to enable me to focus on this project full time in 2019. I know this looks like a lot at first. However with current exchange rates it is less than a yearly paycheck which I would receive when working on a data science job or as a lightning network developer for the industry. As this activity is my favorite activity I would co finance the rest of the project.
I will already start working on the book while the campaign continues.
If you can provide a valid signature with your bitcoin address to the following text message: "I am a proud supporter of the Lightning Network book" you will qualify for a perk if your donation reaches a certain level.
3mBTC get your (nick)name as a donor inside the list of donors
30mBTC receive a signed copy of the book if it is printed and get your (nick)name as a donor inside the list of donors
300 mBTC get a handwritten dedication for your personal copy inside the book and get your (nick)name as a donor inside the list of donors (I will print a copy of this book if it is not published by a publisher)
1 BTC (8x times) picture or logo of you or your company together on one page with other people qualifying for this perk if this book is printed.
5 BTC (3x times) full page for you or your company including the ability to include a job offer for developers or if you are a private person to thank people within the Bitcoin / Lightning Network community.
The last two perks will be peer reviewed and depend also on the agreement of a publisher. They will be available in the online version in any case and I will fight hard to make them available in the printed version.
If you want to HODL your BTC you can also support me with fiat (which unfortunately I need in my everyday live) via my patreon page at: https://www.patreon.com/renepickhardt I will however not accept BCH or any other altcoin.

About This Payment (What You Will Unlock)
Why Is Payment Amount Different From What I Expected?
When viewing a non-bitcoin currency (ie, US Dollars), the amount is converted into bitcoin at the time of payment.
Your wallet may show a different USD amount, depending on the source of exchange rates.
For your payment to be recognised, please send the exact BTC amount specified.
A 'satoshi' is the smallest unit of bitcoin (100 millionth of a bitcoin). We may add or subtract upto 99 units of this tiny value to the final cost of the transaction.
These extra satoshis help us track your payments on the blockchain so we know it's from you and related to the item you're paying for.
Tallycoin does not take a cut or receive these extra satoshis. Every bit of your payment goes to the recipient.
