What is Whaletank about?
As many of you already know, every friday many new ideas take shape thanks to the huge community that Steemit (and the great effort of many few) has gathered through all this time. Many talented people have the chance to be heard by the whales thanks to the hangouts organized every week. We will get back to that later. But...
Beyond Bitcoin Hangouts is evolving
Our way to communicate ideas and spread the word is evolving. The team of Bitshares, Whaleshares, BeyondBit and many others took the bet very seriously and decided that it was time for something better and bigger.
That's right, we are getting big, ladies and gentlemen. Really big. But you may wonder how it works? Let's make a step back and make a call to uncle Fuzzy's words:
The Vision of Beyond Bitcoin
The Vision of BeyondBitcoin Hangout Series is to give communities a voice to speak about their favorite projects in the blockchain and disruptive tech space. But more than that we have always aimed to be community sourced and grass roots in a world where you have to pay to even be noticed within media. Though as we grow, the grass roots methodologies have some limitations, we believe that enabling scaling on an individual community basis unlocks scaling potential! For this reason @officialfuzzy and a small band of avid block-explorers have continued working on building tools to help communities grow. Because noone cares how great your blockchain tech is, if it has no community (or just as bad a disempowered and apathetic one), your cryptocurrency cannot flourish longterm.
With these tools the team started out enabling BitShares, then Steem, then WhaleShares and now are planning coverage of EOS and much more. But this means we need to enable more people and incentivize more crypto savvy content creators to be part of something they can belong to, help build and benefit from in a synergistic union. This is where you come in...
You are invited to participate in helping see this Vision Manifest
There are many tasks behind the scenes with coordinating initiatives, devising new conceptual designs for tools needing made and trying to support multiple communities. As Beyond Bitcoin and its allies grow so too will these tasks grow in number and size. However, these tasks do not even account for another kind of work that is often overlooked by those looking in from the outside--reading/responding to messages, coordinating to fix bugs, solving disputes between community members and the list goes on and on.
It is also inefficient to delegate all the work to one person. And as a team, these who we are now will not be able to forever shoulder the requirements of beyondbitcoin alone, so it only make sense to begin crowdsourcing work from qualified members of the community in areas where Beyondbit and WhaleShare tokens can help reward. They are quite powerful tools after all...even at a supressed Steem marketcap. But they are not nearly as valuable if we do not leverage them to mine the Gold from this Community!
I do this for community endeavors I believe are worth my resources. And BitShares Open Source Hangouts are chief among these priorities. Again...this is where people like you come in. ;)
What are BeyondBits and WhaleShares?
Beyondbits give @officialfuzzy a power similar to the Whaleshares token we started thanks to delegation from @blocktrades only a little over 1 month ago. As whaleshares has quickly become one of the most vibrant and flourishing communities in cryptocurrency because of this token, it has become time for me to start testing a new token in preparation for "The Great Unleashing," when the whaleshares platform is open to multiple whales on Steem. So I now can begin giving my on personal upvote tokens to helpers in much the same way WhaleShares benefit the community. And since I have some whaleshares too, maybe we will see a few winners of those in here as well!
