Please Consider Voting for fuzzy.beyondbitcoin
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:56:38 AM »

Hello everyone,

If you don't already know me, I run hangouts and organize activities through the community mumble server found here:  https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=4203.0

I have been running these and doing community-organizing activities since near launch of "ProtoShares", which then became what we know today as BitShares PTS (or just PTS, depending on the community members you ask).  My main focus has been to organize and moderate town-hall styled discussions between the community and Developers who sharedrop on BTS/PTS/AGS stakeholders. 

I have and continue to do this for 3 reasons:

1) Current CryptoCentric Media outlets provide a valuable service, but do not give voice to all investors in a project.  This incentive structure can create potential for media to become more like propaganda.  Town-Hall styled hangouts give voice to community members, large investors and even competitors who might show up to ask difficult questions that must be asked to ensure community investors are protected with the most up-to-date knowledge possible on a project. 

2) These hangouts help to provide further incentive for what I believe is one of the most undervalued aspects of the BitShares ecosystem--Our Community.  Having these townhall-styled hangouts gives a strong incentive for project developers who want to stand out among our community of Savvy investors to ShareDrop a portion of their total Share supply on the holders of BitShares.  This not only potentially enriches and diversifies our entire community's investments, but also creates a dynamic that broadens the risk spectrum for investing in cryptocurrencies and DACs...opening up options that give community members exposure to new chains without being forced to risk investing their valuable BTS into unproven competitors.

3)  As creative commons licensed works, our Hangouts provide many hours of total content that is made available for anyone to use as marketing and educational content.

We have also started the initiative of holding these hangouts for delegate candidates hoping to be hired by the blockchain.  This ensures that on all levels of the BitShares ecosystem, it is the stakeholders of the system are given the power to decide how it will evolve and grow. 

It is my hope that a 100% paid delegate will enable me to further broaden the scope of hangouts to cover far more sharedropping DACs than the current BTS and PLAY DACs.  It is also my intent to use a portion of these funds to have all hangouts and content provided from them to be edited and made ready for sharing to the liberty and crypto-loving demographics.  Eventually, this funding will help me to setup large Virtual Conferences for the BitShares community(ies) with many DEVs in a way that will also have the advantage of freeing potential attendees from the limitations of geographical constraints. 

I hope you will consider voting fuzzy.beyondbitcoin into the top 101 delegates so I can continue building what I started in a way that helps Beyond Bitcoin grow with the community and the "Powered by BitShares" movement as a whole.  Thank you for your time!

P.S. I also intend on running a Legal Delegate soon to help pay toward a growing, decentralized "legal department" for our Company...so look out for it!

Fuzzy, you're shaping up to become a lynchpin of the Bitshares community: an indispensable artist that completes the community and brings it together.

Finally fuzzy gets a delegate :)

Do you plan to set some amount aside to pay for a couple of members whose job is to vet the delegates and communicate to the community in a concise manner? We need this service.

Fuzz has been doing an outstanding job month after month whilst never asking for anything in return until now. He is a massive asset to the BitShares community and one of the glues that holds us all together. It is my opinion that any DAC that has him as delegate will benefit hugely from the dedication and passion that he always brings.

Good luck with the campaign Fuzz  :D

Holy Crap.  So much support should have me speechless.  But we all know I am one who always has an opinion. 

I'm going to be honest.  I do my best, but do often question my own value to this project (until I see all these positive comments, which serve as metrics for me to recognize that I do bring value).  The reason I have stuck with it for so long and supported it with such passion is because I have had a very difficult time since joining the military to "fight for freedom"...and learning when afterwards that I was actually doing the complete opposite.  There was a time when I felt so small that I thought I could never have an impact in this world and that our problems were insurmountable.  Watching the NDAA written into history with the stroke of a Tyrant's Pen on New Years Eve of 2011 sealed the deal.  It was probably the saddest day of my life to see Habeas Corpus denied in the "Land of the Free".  But BitShares, its devs and community have been a bright spot in my life.  When I look at my baby I think that maybe, just maybe I'm helping build a better world for him.

It has been this community and Bytemaster's Vision that has given me hope when nothing else did.  So I simply can't see myself living without helping it grow big enough and strong enough to rebuild the old paradigm and spur a Revolution.  I'm not talking about a violent revolution (the one the "elites" are wanting to incite so they have an excuse to roll out the Police State they've been building), but a Revolution of the mind and the heart.  In fact, I would like to see the community hold a stake in 100's and maybe even 1000's of DACs "Powered by Bitshares" so when the inevitable politics of any one system change to such a degree that users wish to leave, that they have another place that might be more philosophically aligned with their goals--and based on the best damned suite of crypto-protocols available.  Thank you for always supporting this project and most of all thank yourselves for recognizing YOUR value.  Simply showing up and giving one's opinion can change the entire course of history at this point (and I am not over-doing it with this statement). 

Now that I'm done being my usual crazy, sappy self... there was a question. 

Finally fuzzy gets a delegate :)

Do you plan to set some amount aside to pay for a couple of members whose job is to vet the delegates and communicate to the community in a concise manner? We need this service.
   

I would love to do this, but to be honest I am trying to set it up so we hold community-based delegate hangouts that eventually grow to be the size of Bytemaster's hangouts.  True to form, I would like these to be community-driven where I moderate, ask a list of initial questions and then open it up for the community to do their own "interview" of the candidate.

From there, I would personally like to see Max Wright of BitSharesTV then interview those who actually get hired on BitSharesTV, and push both the content and inform people that to be hired by the blockchain it is the community who decides---and if they pass the gauntlet, they will be offered a slot to chat on BitSharesTV.  Of course, it would be great if he then told people about our community hangouts with both the Developers and the Delegates and direct them to the content we create. 

I will be running a 100% paid delegate and will likely only receive 20-30% pay from it myself.  As stated before, I intend on hiring those who currently volunteer to edit our hangouts, and expect them to provide a far more polished version of the Raw formatted ones.  At present they will likely be paid 20% each for editing which brings us to 60-70% of the 100% already used...because this frees up more time for me to schedule and run more hangouts.  The other 30%-40% will be split up between the tech guru who is helping me and teaching me the best practices of running a delegate (my father), who I will be paying 10% to ensure this is a "backbone" delegate like Riverhead's--with redundancy built into it. 

This brings me to 20-30%.  With this remaining amount, I would like to pay a member of the chinese community who has always attended our hangouts and never asked anything in return for translating to the Chinese members of our community: BTSWildPig (or if he doesn't want to, another Chinese Community Volunteer).  Then I have to also account for taxes.  So as you can see my personal pay rate will be substantially lower than the 100% I am asking, but that is only so I can help grow what we are building.

Of course, as we grow and as those editors "hired" by this delegate prove themselves, it may be possible (as long as the community agrees) to let them run their own delegate(s) and hire even more editors...which would free up more funds for me to hire more moderators for hangouts with different Devs/Delegates for even more chains.  Eventually we could have an entire media network that supports 100's (and potentially even 1000's) of "altchains" that sharedrop on us.  And Max could get those who rise to the top and do what he does best---personal one-on-one video interviews. 

I want this delegate to help expand and grow our community...and most importantly help to empower all of you.  Does this all make sense?
