Portugese translation available for free on Github

In December 2020 I decided to release the book Token Economy on Github under a non commercial creative commons licence for several reasons:

  • In some countries people had a hard time buying my book because of international sanctions or logistical challenges.
  • Some people could not afford to buy the book.
  • Furthermore, the content of the book is subject to continuous change and I wanted to open source the future iterations of the book. Maybe some people could add code contributions to the theoretical examples I thought. Maybe some people would want to translate at least parts of the book.

What happened next took me by surprise. Within one week I was contacted by enthusiasts from around the world who wanted to translate the book into their local language. Currently it is being translated into 9 different languages (see all languages here).

Portugese and Brazilian Version

An international team of Brazilian and Portuguese Crypto activities is the first to finish the translation. In addition to the Portugese translation they are currently working on an adapted Brazilian version.

I am deeply humbled by their enthusiasm for the book, and inspired by their team spirit, hands on attitude and effortless collaboration. After all, Jose Rui Sousa, António Chagas, Courtnay Guimaraes, and Joana Camilo did not know each other before. I would, therefore, like to use this opportunity to introduce the translation team:
