Arguably the best geocentricist body surfer on earth. Can often be found in SF, LV, and Mexican beach towns eating nachos, of course. I am a proud follower of Jesus the Christ and know him to be savior and creator extroidinaire. I am not perfect and have my struggles like everyone else. The challenge of this life is to overcome the evil and deceptions of this world while remaining not only civil but actually loving others. I'll admit I fail miserably at this many times but I'm striving to truly love my fellow brothers and sisters out there no matter what they believe in. I am a staunch anti-zionist and have a heart for the plight of the Palestinian people. I believe that zionism (and the endless wars fought largely on it's behalf) is the greatest christian heresy or our time. And the two can not possibly mix in light of the teachings of Yeshua / Jesus. I am happily married to a beautiful, wonderful and supportive woman and live in California currently but eyeing other places to grow old in. I grew up in NYC region so this explains some of the roughness around my edges. I have a small podcast (Bank Robber & the Bitcoin Guy) that is on hiatus right now because my co-host, Forrest Baker , is ill. Forrest is a double amputee who spent 15 years in jail for robbing banks. He is now a follower of the King of kings but has some health issues atm. Please keep him in your prayers. I love all things crypto and I'm happy to be an early adopter of the bittubers platform. I hope it can remain true to it's mission and am anxious to see it grow.

Ok here it is! The ONE+ hour long interview with the man, the myth and legend, CEO: Saber Maram concerning ALL THINGS BitTube!
In this interview Saber touches all bases regarding the BitTube ecosystem, the lofty ambitions for the project, and the upcoming improvements coming soon to #Bittubers, #Airtime and #TUBE
Saber is candid about the general crypto market and where we are heading in our future battles against the entrenched power brokers of this current world and how Bittube fits into this paradigm.
I hope you’ll be as delighted by the BitTube CEO and founder’s determination, ambition, and most importantly his vision of how we all get to a better future and a freer world, as I was.
Recorded on 9-16-2019 with BitTube Founder and CEO: Saber Maram
In an time where many crypto projects are barely hanging on to the ICO money that they more or less conned out of unsuspecting investors so that they can sit around for the next year and eat twinkies and play video games - BitTube has been striving to deliver a complete well rounded suite of products.
FAIR DISTRIBUTION TO USERS
Join us in this great discussion where you get the words straight from the CEO's mouth of where we've been and where we're heading. I promise you that if you have any interest in BitTube / BitTubers or any of the other aspects of this project that you'll benefit greatly from this video.
Many thanks to Saber for taking the time to connect some of the dots and color in the spaces for the community regarding this impressive, and in my opinion; grossly undervalued cryptocurrency which courses like blood through the veins of the AirTime system.
Excellent interview, you asked the right questions and i have a better understanding of the project goals. I love the idea of a marketplace and a way to sell goods like Ebay but without all of the fees. It seems reasonable that other crypto projects will look to advertise on Bittubers. The idea of an exchange with the app to buy and sell is excellent. Tube really is a valuable token because you will actually be able to buy products other than exchange for fiat.
i am a nacho too!!! nice interview!
Really great interview. Thank you so much. :-)
Thanks a lot! The interview was very well managed in my opinion and I would love for you to make this a recurring thing, if you can. I heard lots of very welcome confirmations and a few news, which is great. Keep up the good work!
Good to hear he is working on the debit cards. But screw google for messing it up! i'm prettty pissed off now.
Our leader @smaram expressing his opinions on fiat. #legend #tubefather
HAHAHA.AWESOME.SO SO COOL.
#suggestion #request I'd really like to be able to block certain types of users from EVER popping up in any of my feed. AFAIK block feature accomplishes this but it also prevents the blocked user from ever seeing my posts or interacting with my posts which is not something I'd want to do. Is there any way to have less harsh blocking mechanism--that blocks their content from appearing in any of my feeds but still allows them to be a follower of my content (and also able to interact and comment in my feeds) if they so chose?
--ok, so I have no idea what it costs to store endless posts compounded by hundreds of thousands of users -- but I would imagine this cost is not insignificant (maybe I'm wrong?). Anyway, I was just thinking of going through my own posts and deleting the stuff I didn't want in there long term: the bugreports, posts now irrelevant about suggestions, maybe outdated political stuff....and it occurred to me that I don't even want most of my posts to have 'permanent' status and storage.
What if we were to charge something -- such as 25-50 cents in tube / or some charge in XP to give a posting permanent status on bittubers? All other posts would be removed after (say for example) 3-6 months... This would force content creators to more seriously consider the posts which they consider important - to them or to their audiences...and help cut down on storage fees immensely I would imagine. For me, it would almost be a service-- because anything I do not deem as important -- i would actually WANT to be removed at some point in the future by the system defaults. Other things I should be willing to pay something for to keep up in posterity. Naturally this would also create a revenue stream for the platform which could go towards costs of maintaining and developing the platform and server costs.
The question would be how much to charge for this? I believe it should be nominal but definitely cost SOMETHING. When posting up you could decide to pay a small fee to keep it up indefinitely or ignore the small fee and know that you posting would disappear within 3-6 months. There's really no reason to keep everything up forever (most things in fact) or even beyond a half year max imo.
#bittubers #bittube #tube @smaram
It's a great point to raise. I upload images I take or make, without thinking, but I like Blockstack dapps because the idea of controlling my data , access, files, forever. I want to do the same here for a lot of images, and know that if anything went wrong at BitTube the content could be under my control, privately etc, migrated. But there are a lot of transient posts that I may not want stored permanently. An option would be fine, and keep users mindful of all this.
They will only be hosted on the cloud for a little time then seeded, but if you pay for membership you get lifetime hosting of your files
I would pay XP but not money. Not unless the value of Tube was lot and I was actually maing money. But I would not pay out of pocket to have a post forever that was not earning me money.
In my experience people don’t like when they are limited and constantly impose on them to pay or buy.
I think the purchase of a level up + the price of the tube will pay for storage. It is better to make sure that people here like and feel comfortable. Maybe not :) personally my opinion
yah i'm just throwing it out there... i'm also thinking of millions of users and what it will take to sustain this. i'm sure tubefather thought of this but anyway — personally, i have different types of content - that which i don't want to see up months from now and other stuff which i'd like saved. The stuff i want saved in my case is actually much smaller.
Everyone liked free shopping bags at the grocery store— but then they implemented 10cents per bag here in san francisco. Now people use reusable bags — which is probably a good thing in long run and less wasteful. Lots of content is wasteful use of space and not necessary to store for many years, and i'm not sure even content creators would disagree regarding much of even their own content. Political content is a good example of this. Who will read or care about posts about bill clintons presidency and his impeachment trial today? Anyone? But if you wrote a big indepth article about it yah, you may want it framed for posterity, like a book. Other than that it's all trash at some point.
#bugreportdone what happened to the blue donate/tip button in social view? you can only access the donate button by clicking on the title of the posting and bringing it to the very wide screen view now. not intuitive. also fwiw - i'm not sure i understand the wide screen view at all...or why it is even necessary.🤔
we did remove the button and is not planned to set it back again ...
if you want to see a media post, you need to open the post, and you get the donate button, only text and single images can be watched in feed post without need to open the post.
we are speaking about implement the button for those kind of post, thinking the other ones are kinda useless.
if you content is great the user will open the post and donate, so is not a big deal ...
thanks for the report
Oh wow, didn't even notice that but it's important to bring the button back. Especially critical for text posts (such as this one) which lose the ability to get a donation alltogether (in social view).
#bugreport #suggestion Honestly I really liked the original format when conducting a post. The whole new page opening up is , ehhhhhh..... Also look at how small the box is. For long posts this is not a good experience and requires lots of scrolling and reading through a small slit. Also if you look at my recent post on TUBE to 100,000% ... why are the images such low resolution in the gallery view? In the past when I've done this same method the resolution of the immages was fine... and now it seemed to auto adjust the image to lower res / smaller .
Yep, reported the text box issue a loooong time ago. As is customary with lots of websites, there should be a little handle on the bottom right corner of the text box, that the users can drag down or up to resize the text box.
Ditto on the image quality thing; it's currently unusable for screenshots because any text is usually destroyed by jpg artifacts.
Before you call me crazy take a look at the charts I posted of Monero's ($XMR) incredible growth in just under 2 years from $0.44 to nearly $500 ($477). This constituted a 104,000% gain. That's ONE HUNDRED & FOUR THOUSAND PERCENT. Then compare the same potential type of rise for TUBE.
Now if we do some basic math using the following parameters taking into account the the max supply of both coins (I'm using max supply of 18,000,000 for XMR and 1,000,000,000 for TUBE we get that #TUBE, in its finality many years from now, will have 1 billion supply or 55x the supply of Monero ( 1 billion / 18 million ) = Tube having 55x the final supply of XMR final supply (I'm using final supply for equivocal purposes which I realize is not perfect but it's a fair standard to use for these estimates) Monero hit roughly $500 USD per coin in December 2017 for a whopping 104,000 % gain! (approx 0.45 cents to $500) or a 1,004X return!
If $TUBE were to do a 1004X return we get from 1 cent to $10.40 per Tube (or 104,000% gain)
Let's remember that Monero had almost NO USE CASE at the time of this 2 year rise and parabolic blow off top. Today it's still valued at roughly 118X from that 44 cents starting point even after a terrible bear market drop.
I've been poking around the monero community and there's a certain level of exasperation — which is very sad to see. They have a GREAT product, but they have no frontman— a bunch of geeks in their community who couldn't sell a free hamburger to a starving man.... the price trickles down. They have nothing like bittubers. In fact after nearly 5 years of existence the brainiacs over at Monero still haven't given the world a good reason to use their coin (and mind you, I'm a huge Monero fan!)
But us TUBERS have a use case, and a community which can like, share, spread the good news of TUBE in creative ways, posts and videos. We have a great referral system coming and we are noob friendly to use. In fact you don't have to know anything about crypto to get involved with the use case. You can enter into crypto slowly if you wish.
We also have youth and energy, while Monero has older community which wants to stick to 'grass roots' (lol). There is a LOT of potential here in both the BitTube products, and the community should only get better. I didn't even get into Airtime and the benefits of sharing in the POW rewards. Is there any doubt that once history repeats itself with another bull run that Tube will be sent soaring to heights we can't quite grasp at the moment? I'm telling you this is likely to happen. But don't be stupid and think I'm guaranteeing it.
I've stated my case. I hope you early adopters can see this. Even if we get a fraction of the last bull market's type of rise, it should be enough help change a lot of lives and put TUBE on the map permanently. We have a coin that we can use today, and more tomorrow and instead of users trickling out - they are coming in, and this is a BIG thing. Don't miss the opportunity.
#tube #bittube #bittubers #bitcoin
Agreed. As an atypical user for crypto platforms (i'm more into content creation that cryptocurrencies) BitTubers in its beta state is already something unique.
NICE POST.GOOD JOB.😀
I hope it does go up to 10 dollars a tube soon. I would be really motivated to make more content and make at least 10 tubes a day
When website owners see Airtime in action they will want it, but they have to _see_ it first. When Bittubers allows users to stake Tube as an investment in creators they like that will be a game changer IMO.
sorry about the resolution on the images--- not sure why bittubers is doing that to the charts... i did put in a #bugreport about it.
Ok, so I was browsing through discord tonight and going through some of the thread. Some good, some bad, and some just ugly ideas and suggestions. But then it occurred to me that making suggestions and complaints on discord or telegram is just boring and soon gets lost in a long winding thread.
So here's the idea (it's very simple):
We have video platform here guys. Let's use it! Everyone has a cell phone with video and a computer, so no excuse. How about making serious videos (or at least long form reddit style posts) about suggestions for the platform and then letting people comment below? This would give a much better idea for @smaram to read through the most upvoted and passed around ideas and suggestions (and sure even some complaints) and get a better idea of things that have serious community support and traction.
Right now we have a bunch of randoms on discord and telegram we have no idea if the person chirping is a 10 year old child, or an 800lb transvestite. Personally, it matters to me. And honestly, I don't hear many good ideas - just a lot of bitching and moaning about petty ass shit. So , SHOW YOURSELF... be professional...and present your case ON THE PLATFORM and let's see how that goes. If you have a good idea it's sure to be talked about, SHARED, and not lost in some never ending discord or telegram thread - it will remain up for some time and become more visible with more consensus (or adversity) to your idea(s).
let's use the #community #suggestions (plural) tags to do this.
If you think this is a good or bad idea - please share why below.
PS: I have always been a very private person especially since I've been involved in crypto for so long, but lately doing a few videos has been fine. I realize I have nothing to hide and can be proud of who I am and my opinions, no matter how much people might ridicule me for them. For some of you making a video might be hard, but I think in these early days of the platform - Video will help us all get to know each other better and get acquainted more with the personalities on the site, rather than just the posts or faceless video uploads. I think this will ultimately be really good for community building and getting to know each other - in this modern digital age where we often leave nothing more than a digitized (anonymous and often faceless) footprint. Getting better acquainted with each other in this format should yield an organic corporate unity to help propel this nascent platform forward, together. -nachodon #newparadigm
change the xp sharing system people are leaving over that you can not ask xp to buy minutes and ask xp to share if you have like 200 followers it cost to much
@bittca6x @ryanw @yasou -- The idea here is that while we are still a small community it would be beneficial for us to be more transparent about ourselves rather than just another random faceless complainer on an internet chat. Right now, people in discord chats receive fairly equal weight - or you get social credit by just being there every day. But is this really a good measuring stick of someone's contribution value? I feel it might even be WORSE to take direction from people who hang out in chats all day honestly. Also who are these people? Again, just faceless complainers who have a lot of time on their hands or pop in the chat to machine gun some negativity.
Why should a 12 year old child or other non serious person have influence for even 5 seconds on how the platform is developed? By making more serious cases and arguments for change / features / and shaping the platform in general through VIDEO presentation (and lesser extent longer form posts) it forces people to get a proper presentation and argument together. It also gives us a small glimpse into them as a person. An idea could be presented more professionally as if before a small committee -- "When I was working for Coca-Cola -- this seemed to work really well...here is why I think XYZ should also be considered by Bittubers." --We could therefore expect more thoughtful and crafted ideas instead of dumb asses clogging the chats with random thoughts they had while sitting on the toilet - angry because #tube price is down and they lost 20 dollars.
Personally I'm sick of all the broke ass people in crypto who demand to be heard in these chats and monopolize time with negativity. I also think that telegram/discord chats are not a good way to build a community. These people are fickle and no one knows their level of commitment to the project - if any at all. This is why in my private Tube Whale chat we let anyone in...but the minute they start trashing the project , price , etc... I offer to let them stay and babble and complain as long as they show me proof of significant stake in $tube...otherwise I could care less what they have to say and simply ban them. Not ONE person I've given this ultimatum to has shown any stake in the project. I gleefully ban them. (If you have stake in this project and have interest in promotion feel free to join us here: https://t.me/BitTubePromoters )
Presenting ideas on a video platform in video is simply a natural fit... It gives the rest of the community the ability to know and understand people who are at least attempting to be serious contributors to the project and not just asshole fudsters or angry toxic fueled morons. It separates the wheat from the chaff, while giving us all a chance to know the serious contributors a bit more personally, and for me that's a step in the right direction.
in something I agree with the author of the post, we must understand (the rationality of this proposal, because many recommendations are written by not quite developed people in the field that they are trying to change) but they try and it’s already good.
regarding "a good idea will always be noticed, and will be discussed = debatable :)
I HAVE BEEN THINKING A LOT ABOUT BITTUBERS LATELY.SO THIS POST COMES HANDY.I ALSO THINK THIS PLATFORM NEEDS TO BE FINALISED BEFORE PROMOTING BY US USERS&CREATORS FURTHER MORE.BITTUBERS PERHAPS NEED TO HAVE AN IDENTITY.EXAMPLE ON INSTAGRAM SOMEONE PLACED A TRANSITION OF 30 YEARS OF HIS LIFE AND THE MEDIA NEWS JUST BACKED IT THIS UP WITH A CATCHY TITLE.I WANT TO SEE BITTUBERS GROW.PEOPLE NEED TIME BEFORE USING A NEW CRYPTOTECHNOLOGY.
1> I see a lot of people wanting to really push for growth on BitTubers.com right now. I don't think now is the time, it needs to be finished! Yes, we all should be using #suggestions to talk about what we want on the platform, I agree with this. Before any promotions are done, we have to reach a point where most people are happy, and BitTubers.com v1 is done! I would hate to attract a lot of people, and then all they remember is a bad experience with an unfinished site.
I'm going to try this week to get a couple journo friends to post bittuber exclusive vids and try and draw some people to the platform. Hopefully it will work out.
#bugreportdone Ok so please notice screen shot. On the Anti-zionism group it says -11 under posts. Is this supposed to be this way? (i know someone who had a lot of posts in this group but left the platform and removed his posts) Should this actually be showing a negative for the removed posts? Seems odd. Been like this for a long while btw.
#bugreportdone #beta It seems that when I edited the title on a few posts that they cached them on my page as separate posts. See the image--- notice 2 of Rudy Guliani and 2 of Challenger Space Shuttle Fakers -- System must see as 2 separate posts when title is edited. Maybe this is why you can't edit a title on reddit?? hmmm

Hey guys! Welcome to the 2019 Porsche 911 (991.2) GT3 RS, one of the greatest vehicles money can buy at the present moment. With that glorious sounding NA 4.0L flat-six engine sitting behind you, there's not much that could ever go wrong. Built for the track and built for speed, the 911 GT3 RS is one of the final slaying naturally aspirated track cars on the market today. This example, named "Kermit" is an example of a modified supercar done right. Enjoy!
