Notice: Payouts have gone out to Guest Speakers for the 10/07/16 hangout! Thank you to all people who join these hangouts to talk about your work! You provide transparency and a record of your efforts in a community who will try to support you for paying it forward. Not all projects succeed, but to all those who stand in the arena, I solute you!
As you can see below, I have distributed all SBD earned directly to those guest speakers who made this hangout possible. Many people who are doing work that is considered valuable by the community are paid well for being transparent and letting people know about theirs, and others' efforts. The following images show last week's payouts--so share and ask for upvotes on this thread to increase the pot to be shared!

Beyond Bitcoin hangouts enable everyone's voice to be heard--Steemit lets the community vote on our Top Guests!
We are continuing this trial run until approximately 4 JUL 17, after which we will assess the benefits of the current model against potential negatives. Until then we are announcing hangouts in a way that gives everyone an incentive to promote our events and themselves, their projects and alliances that germinate in this very hangout community. So until further notice if you want to be covered in beyond bitcoin hangouts in any serious way, we will be asking for you to upvote this post, RSVP and give upvotes to other projects/topics you find valuable. This could change
How to get Coverage of your Project
Post to this and future Hangout Announcements telling us if you are going to be there and what project/topic you would like to cover with the Beyond Bitcoin Community. The highest voted project/topics at the start of the hangout every Friday @ 10am EST will be covered first, followed 2nd highest, 3rd highest...etc in sequence from highest to lowest.
How much time will we have?
This is currently in flux as we are seeing a significant increase in interest to use our 24/7 server for hangouts and events. I am here to help upvote and pay people who are building community around steem and cryptocurrencies in general, so I am partial to letting them last as long as they need to. In the case that hangouts go over 3 hours we will cut them into 2 pieces with the second as the "afterparty".
Additionally, have your own hangouts on our mumble server free of charge and make sure to post to #beyondbitcoin!
Is coverage all I get?
No! You also get the opportunity to answer questions and learn what investors in your project want to see. This is a perfect place to make friends and also learn from one another. Coverage is the byproduct of this...
Additionally, the beyondbitcoin hangouts are a very visible initiative to whales who are heavily invested in steem. Many of these people come from the bitshares community that made things like steem possible. Join and become part of a long and powerful history in crypto!
Is any topic off Limits?
Yes. We reserve the right to learn from the newest trickster trolling steemit consistently searching for way to insert chaos into the equation and devise future strategies for negating these. Naturally if these efforts become ham-fisted attempts at shutting down free speech in honest conversations, the audience will hold us accountable.
But with that said....pretty much anything can be covered--even up to and including current events. However, I personally will only be voting up stories that touch the blockchain in some way shape or form and will be asking the community to downvote absolute Rubbish! ;)
