AMA with Brian Bondy
On August 16th, the BAT Community successfully kicked off an AMA (Ask Me Anything!) series with CEO and co-founder Brendan Eich. The series, scheduled to run from August 2018 through January 2019, features several different guests from the Brave team every month and is being held on the BATProject subreddit.
This week’s AMA featured Brian Bondy, Brave’s co-founder and CTO. Being the CTO of a multi-platform software startup with an integrated utility token doesn’t leave much time for public appearances; this AMA provided a rare opportunity for Brian to share valuable technical insight, his near and long term vision, and to have some fun engaging directly with the community.
Over the course of the AMA, Brian answered a combination of pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors. Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, September 5th, and will feature Dr. Johnny Ryan, Brave’s Chief Policy & Industry Relations Officer. Johnny is responsible for policy and privacy matters, as well as relationships with industry partners and regulators.
