  4. How should we Introduce you/your project/your news coverage?
  5. What is your bitshares account name?

⛒ 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!

Is Google and Illegal Money Transmitter and Securities Exchange?

Suggested Duration: 5 to 10 minutes

Consider a parable by Dan Larimer

"It’s the year 2025. Alice and Bob form a company and issue themselves 1000 shares which they document using Google Sheets. They then proceed to sell shares to the public in exchange for shares of another company which also managed their cap table in a Google Sheet. Everyone has some permission to edit the spreadsheet to transfer their shares from one person to another person.

The only difference between this example and real Google Sheets is that this story is set in the year 2025 after Google moved the backend of Google Sheets to a blockchain.

Today, thousands of less-sophisticated companies manage their shareholder cap tables on Google Sheets. These Google Sheets even log the edit history just like a blockchain. Does the fact that they use Google Sheets instead of Apple’s Numbers or Microsoft’s Excel change the legal nature of the Google Sheets service? Is Google now an issuer, custodian, administrator, and/or money transmitter?"

BitShares.org Domain and Website is now controlled by ApAsia.tech

Suggested Duration: 5 to 10 minutes

Stan Larimer posted the following:

"So, we decided to hand off ownership and control to someone who would take good care of it for the community. We think apasia.tech is an excellent choice.

  • It has a proactive team that is ready, willing, and able to keep the site state-of-the-art.
  • It is located in a jurisdiction where there is less regulatory "zeal".
  • They seemed to be most "neutral", willing to get along with all factions of the community.
  • They are willing to do this at zero cost or personal gain - just for the benefit of the blockchain.
  • Having more than one independently operated reference site scattered around the world is good for decentralization. We wouldn't want any one government to control what is "official".
  • Philosophical compatibility with our original goals and aspirations remembering Don Quixote and Guy Faux."

TWENTIX: A new index fund on BitShares

Suggested Duration: 5 minutes

Bit20 is a crypto index fund that includes the top 20 blockchains projects by market capitalization.

"Bit20 has grown immensely in value. The smallest unit (0.00001 BTWTY) is now worth several dollars and it keeps growing. It is sometimes a barrier to operate small trades and to run bots. Twentix has been designed to be worth 1/100,000th of 1 BTWTY."
