Did you know that we have written a book (of course in German)?

Our original idea was to create educational material for our Dash Ambassadors but as the text kept growing we thought that the book could serve as an all-in-one introduction to money, fiat, blockchain, cryptocurrency and Dash. The book will be available to everyone and we wanted to make it the number one introduction for those new to the crypto space.

The text of the book is finished (not proof-read), and it is currently 200 pages long but we have to insert some pictures and graphics so that it will be something like 230 pages in the end.

But one thing we haven't yet decided on, is the name of the book. Therefore, we have created this poll to ask the community about what name you think would be appropriate. We have entered some ideas but feel free to add yours to the table. If you are not a German speaker, ask yourself what content you want to be put into the name.

You can find the book here. If you can speak German feel free to comment any suggested changes using the commentary function inside the document - we have not proof read it because we just finished the text today and wanted to immediately share it:

I will include a translation to the table of content, so that you can see what we have written about:
