One.Surgery is excited to announce our most ambitious global surgery project yet – the launch of our global surgery blog, powered by Bitcoin Cash! One.Surgery is seeking to inspire writers and bloggers from the global surgery community to write on our platform, to share their thoughts, ideas, projects, experiences and solutions with the global community. We fundamentally and passionately believe an essential aspect of advocacy is listening to each other, empowering the community by giving a platform to discuss critical topics, support each other’s voices to be heard, and believing in one another to achieve the surgical outcomes we so desperately need.
Although One.Surgery welcomes all writers to to share their writings, we particularly welcome bloggers and writers in low and middle income countries who have a passion for global surgery to write on our platform.
To launch the project, One.Surgery will be offering any blog post that meet our publishing criteria with a reward, donated in Bitcoin Cash to the author’s cryptocurrency wallet. This is a time limited offer and the editorial team’s decision is final as to how long this reward programme will last and how much Bitcoin cash will eventually be given away.
How do I blog?
Its simple, firstly register for a free account with One.Surgery – visit: https://one.surgery/register
Then visit the blog at https://one.surgery/blog and follow the link to submit your own blog post. Please set up your profile with a suitable bio and profile photo.
Once your blog post has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the editorial team and if accepted, it will be published live on the blog. If you qualify for a reward, you will be notified on how to receive the bitcoin cash reward privately.
If the editorial team request revisions, you will be notified to make changes.
What can I blog about?
The author can blog about any topic, from daily life to healthcare related, from projects, ideas, local problems, to opinions on any latest research or a number of alternate topics. The topic does not have to be strictly related to surgery, but naturally this will be our overall focus.
How many times can I blog?
You can submit posts as many times as you like! However, our Bitcoin cash rewards will only be given a maximum of one blog post per author per day, to those posts that indeed qualify for the reward.
Can my post be rejected altogether?
Yes, the blog post must meet our guidelines and editorial standards. If the post does not match these, the post will not be published. The editorial team’s decision is final and there are no appeals.
How will you distribute the rewards?
Whilst our funds last, One.Surgery will reward $5 (USD) equivalent in bitcoin cash (BCH) to authors whose blog posts meet the reward criteria. This reward amount may vary depending on our funding stream and will end after a designated period of time, whilst funds last.
The criteria includes:
The author is writing from a low or middle income country.
The author must provide a valid profile photo and bio for their blog.
The blog post is at least 500 words and must be of a good written standard.
The blog post cannot be offensive in any way.
The post cannot contain clinically sensitive information that violates patient confidentiality, or contravenes local or government law.
The post’s content is original and copyright free.
The post is accepted by the editorial team to meet all it’s standards.
Why are you using bitcoin cash as a payment?
We believe in both the practical aspect of exchanging Bitcoin Cash currency (borderless, universal, peer to peer, instant, transparent, secure with negligible running costs) as well as the philosophical foundations of cryptocurrency.

How will I receive my reward?
One.Surgery will be paying via the cryptocurrency Bitcoin Cash (BCH).The author will need to own a BCH wallet in order to receive their cryptocurrency. To find out more about bitcoin cash and how to obtain a wallet, please visit:
Isn’t $5 a small reward for my post?
The bitcoin cash reward is not a payment for your writings, but an acknowledgement of your contribution to the global surgery platform and a token of our appreciation. Furthermore, receiving any reward for blogging is a very difficult process in the internet. Many blogging sites do not offer any reward at all, and even when using large blogging sites like medium.com, it is exceptionally difficult to get the rewards without receiving a significant number of views and likes. For this reason, we feel our $5 token is a very reasonable recognition for your efforts!
What can I do with my bitcoin cash?
Bitcoin cash is becoming increasingly prevalent in e-commerce! There are many online vendors that accept this payment form. Alternatively you could save it as an investment, as the currency values are constantly changing. Lastly, you could always save your rewards and purchase some of the global surgery merchandise in our shop, we accept bitcoin cash! Check out the shop here: https://shop.one.surgery
