Welcome to another project-packed episode of the **BeyondBitcoin Whaletank** featuring 7 incredible community driven projects. If you have heard about Whaleshares and BeyondBitcoin, but are not sure what they represent, this is your opportunity to watch, listen and learn.
Steemit has evolved into a community of people coming together with similar interests to share posts on topics that are important to them and the people who follow and connect with them. The BeyondBitcoin and Whaleshares communities are extensions that operate independently, but **work in tandem to support the development of community-building projects** both on Steemit and offline in the “real-world”.
**The following recording is from Whaletank Hangout #227 on Saturday October 7, 2017.** This is another exciting edition covering 7 different projects by a diverse group of dedicated advocates, each with their own goals to help and support people all over the world in unique ways using the power of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain.
**To truly understand** what these projects do and how much they help, *please* take the time to listen to the audio.
*This audio was edited by me to remove 90% of the “umms, uhhhs, throat clearings, awkward pauses, and mic issues.” There is some minor content editing in this edition, but nothing that alters the context of the project overviews presented in this recording.*

**Using Steemit to Teach Children About Finance**
Presented by: @eastmael
A family project to teach children about finances using cryptocurrency as the reward.
You have to keep in mind that Steemit/STEEM is based on the same blockchain technology that runs Bitshares, the upcoming EOS platform, as well as all the tokens that are trade-able across them all on the Bitshares DEX (Decentralized Exchange).
The tokens become **extremely powerful tools for funding real-world projects** that provide help for people with depression and mental health issues (VOICESHARE), people recovering from cancer treatments (HAIRSHARE), non-profit programs assisting with the Red-Cross (LOVESHARES), projects to build clean energy solar farms across the globe (TOPSOL), and so many more. Plus the direct financial support tokens like BeyondBits and Whaleshares bring to projects that do not have their own supporting token provides hope for so many.
