⛒ 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! ;)

What are Beyondbits and Whaleshares?

Beyondbits and Whaleshares started as a conversations in the BeyondBitcoin hangout series shortly after Steem was launched historically in those very hangouts. It began as "community tokens" or "tag coins" for those who never knew to listen in who may wish to listen to the origins in our BeyondBitcoin Podcast Series. Drop in and listen to them sometime!

These tokens give their hodlers the power to Summon a Whalevote to posts without having to pay for attention. And they are only given to people who Win Contests and do other things of value to the community!
These little hidden gems are held safely just for you. Waiting for the moment when you prove yourself in the arena of contests and hangouts like the whaletank...so if you haven't yet, you should follow @officialfuzzy and watch out for his new contests, or join the Whaleshares Discord where there are a community of Beyondbit Experts!

With the Spectre and Meltdown I'd like to discuss:

  1. 2FA implementation and public awareness, giving shard of keys to friends, mutlisig and

  2. Why there isn't an iPhone app, if it would be practical from an UX standpoint (the Stocks app worked well even on a small screen the iPhone 2G-4S had and there are plenty of examples of it) So it shouldn't be hard to create a BitShares app on iPhone, if Apple approves of course...

duration 3-7 minutes


and if apple doesn't approve it shows only a bad intention of tim cook and even though the company quadripled since he came in place of jobs... he still has shown to us that apple stays to jobs vision


I believe that 'MagicWallet' is supported by iOS: https://www.magicw.net/


Very slow website though.


Thanks! I'll check it out Customminer!

BitShares.com Domain

@michaelx has negotiated a deal to acquire the domain BitShares.com for 250,000 USD. The plan is for Cryptonomex to use these funds to complete the negotiated deal.

If approved, any accounts that are referred from this site will be set to the BitShares reserve fund as a way to replenish the costs of the worker proposal.

Michael's arguments for acquiring the domain are:

  • Prevent someone unfriendly to the BitShares ecosystem from using the domain
  • Many people by default only search for .com domains
  • Cryptonomex will cover the cost of hosting the domain
  • The site will have a new website that is being prepared by @richcg
  • Pledge by Michael and @stan to refill the reserve fund with the equivalent (BTS or bitUSD?) from referral fees

You know what sucks about this, if it was Microsoft or Google, they would lawyer up and take that domain claiming trademark violations, etc. and win.

Second Report from the BitShares Spokesperson on Various Issues
Web Site

The Foundation had previously discussed its desire to provide a website to be the "the one and only source of information for a potential owner of BTS and inform and educate all authorities and bodies involved." The decision has been made to use the site www.bitshares.foundation as the web site that will be prepared by the Foundation.

Legalities in the US

In order re-list the BTC:BTS trading pair, Bittrex Inc. required an accurate description of the BitShares blockchain and the Bitshares token (BTS), which was previously written by the Foundation one month ago, and needed it to be approved by legal counsel in the US. The Foundation has retained the firm Paul Hasting to do this. The Foundation will seek worker proposal to be approved to pay for this expense in the future.

The firm will also be tasked with asking the US SEC for a "non-action letter". The request will highlight that (a) BitShares had no Initial Crowd-sale (ICO), and (b) there is no reward policy for simply holding BTS.

Upcoming Graphene Conferences

There will be two conferences on Graphene coming up this year. One will be held in Shanghai in April/May, and another will be held in Amsterdam around September/October.

Distinction Between Two Entities
  • "The BitShares Blockchain Foundation (BBF), that stands behind http://bitshares.foundation, offers open mailing lists, publishes press releases, keeps contact to exchanges and operates multiple workers for the community with highest transparency yet to be found a second time anywhere the entire crypto ecosystem."

  • "The BitShares Foundation (BF), which is in existence even longer and offers what is called multsignatory contracts by means of Escrow, e.g. for an ICO, for parking funds before release, or for parking funds in a disputed situation to put the matter of available funds at rest."

👍 Once again the last hangout and after party was a feast of knowledge and wisdom that went on for hours. Thank you @Taconator for the topics of discussion and @SteemPower for the weekly State of the Network report. You are both appreciated!!!

💬 Still seeing lots of "rumor and buzz" going around about an EOSIO/Bitshares announcement - any truth to this? Will this play into the continuing rise in BTS/USD price?

As usual this evening...
Bitshares doing it's thing, not breaking a sweat...


Yes, you didn't discuss this the last time but instead focus was on Spectre and Meltdown.

Hardly ever get to attend hangout live but often listen to playback. Have slowly been getting understanding of how to use the tools on bitshares platform. To be honest its been a challenge because I am so new. Still every piece of information I get here is very helpful. Thanks for keeping it going.

Joining the EOS discord soon!
