King Charles V the Wise commissions a translation of Aristotle

The MYTHBUSTER project needs you!


Article is also available in:
⬤ Español
⬤ português


Use your translation skills to translate myth-busting articles that other people have written, into new languages. In doing so you can be rewarded substantial amounts of MYTHBUSTER tokens, which are reward tokens that can earn dividend payments by anonymous contributors.

You will also get a warm fuzzy feeling of contributing significantly to education of the public about Bitcoin, and helping to spread awareness of the beautiful nature of this peer to peer electronic cash to the world community.


NOTE: In December 2019 we are having a writing competition and BCH airdrop as additional incentive to reward contributors. Please read this article:

https://read.cash/@btcfork/mythbusting-2019-holiday-competition-santas-airdrop-8f8f07c3


Below, I list the existing myth-busting articles I am aware of (first, the ones on this platform - a wider search for existing articles on other forums and blogging sites will follow later.)

Articles are grouped by language, so you can see if there is a language which you can translate. By the way, this post itself, and the roadmap and incentive description post, all need translation into other languages. Good translations of posts will be awarded between 50 to 100 MYTHBUSTER tokens, depending on the quality.

Mystbuster posts on read.cash , grouped by language:

English:

Spanish (Spain):

French (France)

Portuguese (Brazil)

German (Germany)

Polish

Slovenian

Arabic

Please let me know in the comments below if you have translated anything into a language of your choice. Please also identify the language in the comment.

If you are unsure whether an article has been translated into the language that you wanted already, please ask in the comments. It's always good to avoid duplicate work. If it has already been translated, you can still contribute by reviewing and offering corrections to the author where you see something you feel is wrong.

People will need to read your content and attempt to assess its quality before awarding you MYTHBUSTER tokens, so we ask for your patience!

Thanks for reading, and let's bust myths in many languages!

A note about poor machine translations: I'm fine with you using machine translation as a tool, but it's not hard to spot, and poor quality machine translations will earn very little, if any, tokens. I will solicit people I trust to help review and assess the quality of translations.

Please make sure you are actually capable of translating content properly, otherwise just leave it to people who can :)

oops! Copying this here: @btcfork I also can translate to Spanish and Catalan (regional language from Spain), if you are interested in the former just tell me and I'll spend some time as soon as I can!

I think both Spanish (ES) and Catalan are valuable. @Grido is already doing much Spanish translation, as you may have seen in the "Spanish" section now in this article.

If you can do Catalan ones that would be excellent, I would add a section for it once you have the first translation done :)

If you want to do Spanish ones too, maybe coordinate with Grido on future work, so you don't repeat each other's work.

Your offer to help on this is very much appreciated!

I've made a couple of videos whose scripts may be useful enough to be worth translating. Feel free to add them to your list, or not.

First and maybe most generally useful, here's a video about "Blockchain" vs "Bitcoin", and whether you can have one without the other. (Perfect for anyone who thinks "blockchain technology" was the real breakthrough, not Bitcoin.)

https://youtu.be/R9juamxokzc

The script is here:

https://honest.cash/v2/AD1AD/new-video-blockchain-vs-bitcoin-4544

Here's a video debunking the claim that miners are a trusted third party. This comes up sometimes with Lightning Network proponents/apologists who try to argue that lightning is peer-to-peer, but on-chain transactions aren't.

https://youtu.be/bysWEZ2Tuwk

The script is here:

https://honest.cash/v2/AD1AD/new-video-are-miners-technichally-a-trusted-third-party-and-what-do-they-do-3787

I also made a video debunking the claim that it's a good idea (or really even possible) to "store" data on the blockchain:

https://youtu.be/FZ2TSXHGBEU

The script is here:

https://honest.cash/v2/AD1AD/new-video-can-you-store-data-on-the-bitcoin-blockchain-4932

Finally, here's an article I wrote trying to debunk the idea that contentious chain splits are a bad thing:

Thank you. Excellent comment that will add to the list of myths and source material for mythbusters.

Please post an SLP address, your provided sources are certainly worthy of MYTHBUSTER credits.

No worries - any BCH tips I give out are additional and separate to token rewards, as the token should serve as a future dividend tool to reward the contributors of good content.

I've yet to integrate the myths you noted in your content - coming soon!

As a guide: when you are translating to another language, at the top of your post, include a link to the original article which you used as a basis.

Also, there is no need to include the same decorative images in your translated article. The important thing is the written content.

Thank you! As always a very good translation from what I can see.

While checking it against original I spotted some mistakes in the original which I should fix up. I might comment underneath your article once I've made some corrections to mine. It's minor things like incorrect links and unresolved "Figure N" reference which I forgot to adjust.

Because this was a long article and certainly a lot of work to translate, you get +75 MYTHBUSTER.
