I'm giving a presentation at the Satoshi's Vision Conference this Friday about Yours, and I want to include some highlights. There have been some really cool things that have happened on Yours since we launched and I want to be sure to include all the greatest things. Please let me know about cool things that I should include in the presentation. Anyone who suggests something cool that I actually use in the presentation, or would use if I had more time, will get a $10 tip from me :)

To me it's just cool that Yours exists, the way its embedded itself into my life. In 2016 I finally gave in and joined facebook and instagram to see what I was missing, to see if something would spark my interest. But after about a year I stopped using them completely. And though I've only been on Yours about six months, I don't see the same thing happening. I would have never guessed the ability to tip people dimes and quarters across the internet would be such a game changer, but it is. It means even more now after learning what people make and live on in Venezuela, something I discovered through an article on Yours, where I commented and asked questions of the author, who kindly responded. I've discovered music through Yours, read fiction on Yours, and even published some of my own articles, and this is still the very beginning. Finally, there would be no Yours without Bitcoin Cash. I like how the two go hand in hand. Ryan X. Charles had a great idea, but it was really only able to thrive with the creation of Bitcoin Cash, and at the same time, I can't think of anything or anyone else doing more to spread the word about BCH than Yours.org.

Yours has done many things for many people. What it has done for me.
Growing up, I was not successful at anything that didn't interest me. I didn't excel at sports, was always a bit of a geek, and very much a loner. I also had a father who thought that calling me stupid, or "shit for brains," would train me to be better, but what it really did is actually make me believe that, I was stupid.
I'm quite a bit older, and deep down, I know I have intelligence, but those words followed me through my entire life. I just assumed, I could not offer anyone anything of value. So I moved from bad job after bad job, never expecting I could do anything better.
One thing I loved, was writing, but I never had much motivation, or because of the words my father spoke, I really just didn't think I was good enough. After months of being beat up by trolls, on Twitter, and losing hope in really having anything great to offer the Bitcoin Cash community, combine that with the cryptocurrency markets crashing around me, getting Shadow Banned on Twitter(still am), and too much time on my hands I had sunk into a deep depression and really had given up. I still went through the motions of surviving, but I just wasn't living. I had to find something else. A few months back people were encouraging me to write for yours, but again, I didn't feel I was good enough so instead I sank deeper into depression and the mind numbing garbage that kept me from giving up completely, binge watching TV.
Then I finally got the Kick In The Ass I needed.
The internet went down, after hours of finally determining it was the Xfinity modem. I had to be internet free for nearly 24 hours before a technician could come out and replace the modem. Now I needed something to keep me from going absolutely insane. Nothing worked, without the modem(Steam,Youtube,Netflix,Twitter,PS3) my brain was swimming with thoughts I could not tolerate, and I needed something to keep me occupied. I couldn't get to Yours, at the time, but I could open up "Word Starter 2010" and start typing. When I read it back to myself, I though it wasn't half bad, so I decided when the internet came back up, and combined with the financial motivation, of Yours, I would publish it.
The internet was back up and I had still not published it, I sat staring at the boxes of the create page on Yours, as these thoughts swam in my head. "can I take anymore rejection?" "What if people hate it?" "What if the words I say actually push people away from Bitcoin Cash?" "What if I just have Shit for brains?" "What If...Fuck it, just do it"
I clicked publish.
It did pretty well. I was shocked. People were willing to give me their hard earned money for what I had just written.
I still have a lot to learn and a ton of words swimming around in my head, that need to get out, but I have found a new purpose and a new motivation, for not only what I could do for Bitcoin Cash, but what I could also do for my life. Yours did that for me, and if my words can motivate or even change the minds of others. Then Yours did that too.

Lately I've been reading a lot about all the different cryptocurrency projects, trying them out to see how they work, as well as taking some time to learn how they all function underneath the hood. Of course, one of the most interesting ones to watch is Bitcoin and right along with it all the fervorous debates. I try not to get too involved with the debates. Regardless of where you stand, it's difficult to ignore what some projects are doing for helping people escape economic oppression and economic extortion—to me that is something tremendously cool (and so important). Although there are a few on the scene that are displaying this attribute, one such project impossible for me to ignore is http://yours.org and more specifically, how it is helping people in Venezuela (and elsewhere) escape dire situations: https://www.yours.org/content/eatbch-venezuela------bchforeveryone-9208f5275bc3 In that respect, another thing that really impressed me with http://yours.org was how posts became free to create. Although the "quality" of posts were thought to have gone down part of the idea of voting (similar to reddit) and tipping is how those functions help move "higher-quality" posts to the "TOP" areas, and in yours.org case that actually makes curation an opportunity and encourages more diverse range of opinions and posts which is giving newcomers two more ways to participate and thus be included—to me that is doubly cool. Another appreciation of coolness: I'm also very impressed with the category selection of http://yours.org - putting writing, art, music, and science at the top is somewhat an indication of the hopes of the community and shows an appreciation for those topics. One other thing I'd like to mention is that I appreciate the new notification system (and the simplicity of the transaction history) in that it not only allows me to see what people voted on and how and what is getting paid, but it also allows me to discover new users. Thanks to that I have already followed some users who I'd like to see future posts from. Since I haven't been here all that long- I'm not sure if the meta section is new or not, but it is something I really appreciate and think is cool too. It's great to see people's opinions about the platform and also great to see official announcements there too.
Edit: well I just have to mention a few other things I'm very impressed with, the draft feature and auto-save, how easy it is to paste in image links (and things like soundcloud embeds) while creating a post draft, and how effective (and necessary) the edit button is especially on longer posts and comments.

Dozens of young people from Praxis got their first experience with crypto and Bitcoin Cash entirely because of Yours. They weren't drawn to it for political or philosophical reasons, but because of the concept of micro tipping content creators that Bitcoin Cash enables.

People said many glorious words and I could sign for them, although I would never write is so nice and clear.
I would like to add story about my neighbor, who could not get a wallet, as her phone broke, and something with computer, and we used Yours, she created account and I could sent her some BCH.
And for the third: Yours opens doors. Today I made this post, and who knows, what comes from it. Amazing things could happen. Venezuelan musicians can play the tunes, and get tipped, people will share it out and spread the word, creators of all categories get visibility, check here, if you like, YoursDignity starts with you, as a creator ...
may good things keep happening ;)

Mi nuevo proyecto para Yours.org

Hola amigos de toda esta comunidad Yours.org vengo a traerles una propuesta ahora en uno de mis post anteriores estuve hablando sobre la necesidad de una comunidad hispana hablante aquí en Yours.org a lo que me puse a dar rienda suelta a mi imaginación y me esto disponiendo a hacer un grupo en el cual se podrán unir toda persona que necesite ayuda en su inicio en la comunidad ya me dispuse a crear el perfil el cual es el siguiente :

Este perfil sera utilizado para brindarle apoyo a todo hispano hablante dentro de la comunidad al menos esa es la idea a parte de crear el perfil también e creado un grupo de Discord donde se podrán unir para obtener mas ayuda, conocer otras personas dentro de la comunidad y debatir sobre que mejoras podrían realizar.

Mi puntos para crear este perfil y el grupo de discord son los siguientes:ç
  • Ayudar a toda persona que necesite ayuda en su comienzo en yours.org ya sea con instrucciones, votos o propinas
  • Impulsar a la creciente población hispano hablante que crece a diario en yours.org
  • Apoyar mas al contenido en español en la comunidad ya que muchos no sabemos hablar ingles muy bien y utilizan el traductor de google en sus post el cual es muy malo
Esa es mi propuesta aqui en YOURS.ORG
Post completo aqui y traducido a ingles :
Gracias @Ryan x Charles por esta gran comunidad

One of the things that is great about yours.org is it gives you an immediate economical feedback of the content you create. Using this feedback, one can easily experiment and improve their writing style.
Many times I write something super interesting and keep refreshing the site to see the tips/purchases but in the end it is a disappointment.
Also many times, I write something that I find interesting at a medium level but in the end it gets tipped more than I ever anticipated.
Yours is like the wild west of content right now. I am loving the experiment.
PS: What I really want to see next in this website is a language learning section.

For me, the paid voting and comments make a huge difference. It keeps the trolls away and prevents shilling. The quality of the content is much improved as a result. I have to read tons of crap on reddit before i get to something worth my time. On Yours i find that anything that has been upvoted is worth my time even though it may be off topic for me.

Dear Ryan X. Charles there is very little to add about your project ... Those who live in the social world immediately perceive the strength of Yours.org A system with which to publish also micro quality content whose success is decreed by the same community. A free and fair system that gives voice to everyone!
Personally, I would improve something in the functionality of the site (I opened a special post here: https://www.yours.org/content/what-would-you-improve-on-yoursorg----b5a7b1cf8015) and then I would start with a nice campaign to spread the project in order to increase exponentially the user base (which are then those that keep the project alive)
Go on!

I like how Yours puts market logic to the test. In doing this, many important things about human nature become clear in a way that is more difficult to deny than would be the case if all we could point to in defense of our ideas was a few stuffy academic essays. One of the more interesting things Yours reveals is that the problem of toxicity on the internet is not an intrinsic character defect on the part of untold millions. Rather, that toxicity is a consequence of a given structure of incentives. Change the structure of incentives, and the behavior will follow.
The Yours approach is so much simpler, and more pleasant, than punishing people for misbehavior.

I have a very nice personal story related to Yours.
This project was something that caught my attention since I found out it existed (about a year before it was available to be used). From the beginning I knew it was a good idea that would give excellent opportunities to creative people, and that it would be an excellent way to point out my friends as a way to enter the world of cryptocurrencies.
When Yours was available, especially when I read about the integration of Bitcoin Cash, my joy was greater, so I always kept an eye on their progress.
My personal story related to Yours, which confirmed that this is a social network that offers more and better opportunities accessible to all, occurred at Christmas.
I wrote an article about something that mattered to me very much and unexpectedly I received a tip of 500 USD from you (an amount I had never had in my hands).
I spent a couple of weeks thinking what would be the best way to invest that money and finally I bought a decent computer with which I have edited a couple of short films for the university (I study to be a filmmaker) and I have also done a couple of works of subtitling of videos for which I have been paid in bch.
I always thought that Yours would expand the opportunities of my friends, but it turned out that it also expanded mine, and that's why I am very grateful to Yours and to you.

I first accessed internet in 1995 and since then fell in love with it, especially with blogs by reading and writing. After 22 years, the very first time I paid to read an article was on Yours.org after they adopted BCH. It was amazing paying a few cents to read something online.
This made me realize the potential of Yours.org and BCH. I subsequently invested in $BCH at a very low price and gained excellent returns. That was just the beginning.
I always had this dream of earning money for my writing, but it always looked very hard to become a professional writer making a living. Imagine my elation when this dream started becoming reality by writing in Yours.org and people actually paid to read!
This added conviction to my belief that CryptoCurrency had a bright future with Bitcoin Cash leading the way and I got the ammo to fend off the core trolls and prove to my friends and detractors about vital missing factor of any cryptoCurrency - its real world usage!
So thank you Ryan for all the hard work and providing an opportunity for an amateur writer/Technical Analyst

I'm not sure I can bring anything new the table, as I just joined Yours a few days ago and therefore haven't been around to see many of the cool things which have happened here.
However, I do want to simply thank Ryan X. Charles and Clemens for the incredible platform they have created.
I am new to crypto, and only got "involved" in the space last month (despite having read about bitcoin back in 2013...oops, lol).
My first venture was CryptoKitties (anyone else? Do I see a hand?) but it seems that that site is not even remotely as active as it was during November. So it was sort of a waste of money for me, but I don't count it as a total loss since that's what finally got me invested in cryptocurrencies.
Anyway.... (slight topic change, bear with me...)
I've always been the entrepreneurial type, and have used website-building as an outlet for my entrepreneurial drive. Maybe it sounds odd, but I just love websites, analyzing their every detail, studying the UI/UX and whatnot, and then experimenting with my own sites.
I have many website ideas but never enough time to build them all out. One idea that has been brewing in my head for who knows how long, is a social media platform, much like Yours, that would pay users for interacting. The problem is, I can't code to save my life, and I could never dream up a compensation plan that would actually work.
I've always wondered why a website like this didn't exist. There'd been many attempts at it over the years, but to my knowledge they'd basically all failed. Certainly, and theoretically, it seemed possible. But no one had done it.
So, a few days ago, inspiration struck and I spent some time surfing Google, searching for a social media platform that I knew didn't exist. Little did I know that Yours did exist, and was literally better than I could've imagined.
By the way, I already knew about Steemit, and had even signed up and got approved. However, I guess I was just scared away by the huge learning curve it presented, with all the confusing terms and stuff.
That's why I thought that the "ideal" site couldn't exist; Steemit was as close as I'd get and my search would be fruitless.
But the short version is that I eventually found Yours on the second page for one of my searches, clicked because the domain name was clickworthy, blinked a few times when the site flashed before my eyes, because the simplicity and incredible execution of the site was unbelievable.
Here it was, the site I knew had to exist, yet for so long did not, at least to my knowledge.
The learning curve was hardly even a curve - I read the FAQ, clicked sign up, my account was created immediately (unlike with Steemit), bought my first few $$ of Bitcoin Cash on Coinbase, and boom.
What I've seen here in the days following that has been nothing short of impressive; so many people have so many interesting things to share, and I just love how people are getting paid for content they created - paid by people from across the globe, and from all walks of life. And I love the fact that Yours is truly life-changing for so many people as well.
So yeah, I think Yours is awesome if you couldn't already tell, and will happily support it (already I'm on here browsing whenever I get the chance throughout the day).
Anyway, sorry if this was all off-topic. I just had to get it out. If you read this far, thx. :)

  • I got a very well-done logo created for $20 :)
  • RiversandMountains making a killing
  • BCH Fund
  • Industry announcements (Joystream, etc)
  • The harmony within the community
  • For me personally, the financial reward for the hours of work writing Bitcoin (Cash): Investment Thesis was very satisfying.
  • Posting a friend's X-Files episode write-up that she wrote many years ago
  • Using Yours to facilitate a birthday present of Bitcoin Cash for a friend (thanks again for the help, Ryan)
  • Being able to share the interview I had with my 88 year old great uncle
  • The ridiculous amount of updates and features you've added since the inception - I remember what Yours looked like when you used Litecoin for payments ;)

The creation of Y'alls on the Lighting Testnet was a lol moment for me. They were trying to make fun of Yours (something that actually exists and uses real money) with an almost identical site with a similar name, except it uses fake Lighting test coins. BTC fanboys were all "this is amazing!". My comment was "Yeah this is great, it works almost as well as BCH on Yours!"

  1. Joining on Yours is absolutely free and instant. No need to submit any KYC
  2. Blogging is also 100% free. We do not need money to write any article here
  3. All funds on Yours wallet is 100% controlled by its author not, Yours
  4. Very easy interface to operate
  5. Voting, Tipping is almost instantaneous and on-chain. This is the most important feature of Yours I think. BCH has very fast confirmation speed and Yours choose BCH - It's the 100% right decision :)
