Are you a knowledgeable bitcoiner eager to educate others? Join us!

We’re always looking for new Bitcoin Guides—what we call our volunteer ambassadors—to help grow and nurture the Hello Bitcoin community. The best Guides are bitcoiners who:

  • Know bitcoin so well they can ELI5
  • Are naturally friendly, warm and welcoming
  • Are passionate about helping new folks understand bitcoin
  • Have a small amount of time to volunteer and “give back” to bitcoin

Our Guides help field questions across our social media outlets and hang out in our Discord space to chat and help new bitcoiners learn the ropes.

Does this sound like fun? Have other ideas on how to contribute?
