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 we started out humbly 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 for me to do everything on my own. I and my small band of helpers 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 I 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!

Feedback/upvote/downvotes always appreciated!

Hope you enjoy!

Sup everyone!
Here's my cut1 submission for the contest...
Please keep in mind that this could/will change but, the overall concept will remain intact.
Feedback/upvote/downvotes always appreciated!



its gonna be hard for people to beat you man. next time add in the hangout i post in between the intro and outro and i suspect i'll start resteeming it and will give you lots of tokens. :)


Yea, I know :(
Don't know what I was thinking before I posted the audio.
Well... I do know what I was thinking but, to embarrassed to admit what! LOL


Hey @ajvest, Very professional voice-over. I like it. If you have time now, you can quickly swap out the middle hangout audio and repost it. On soundcloud you can click the edit icon on your audio and at the top there is a text link to "replace file". That will let you keep everything the same, just swap out the audio file.

*There is technically 35 minutes left for hangout #30 entries :-)


Hey @steempowerpics
Thanks for the kind comment!
Yea, this one was my mistake. I didn't pay attention to the "contest" LOL and just re-uploaded a previous cut.
I was actually working on what you've suggested regarding the "middle" hangout. I've finally got my template setup in Reaper to "Turn-n-burn" with pre-recorded dates. So now, it'll be as easy as a couple cut & pastes and upload. Here's my version for the #31 Hangout... plus it has edited audio for the "middle" hangout part.



It's been a learning curve for me, but I'm having fun with it. I did a similar thing now in Audacity so I can more easily swap out the middle content.

Is that your voice in the audios? It's super professional. I sound like kermit the frog when recorded LOL so I was trying to filter the pitch and all to make it sound kinda fun and techno-ish. :-)


Thanks for commenting @steempowerpics
Yes, that is my voice in the audio LOL
And yes, with the myriad of mixing options available today, it is a learning curve. I'm still a long way from what I hope accomplish some day... what or when that point is? Who knows?
I use to love Audacity. It's a great program but limited, in a freeware sense.
Reaper has been my go to program, it's free, can use VST plugins and is the next best thing to ProTools and the likes. Another plus, it has regular updates, so people are actively working to update fixes, keeping it's stability.
I highly suggest checking it out if you haven't already!


Thank you. I will check it out.

This is my entry for the contest @officialfuzzy
