AMA with Jimmy Secretan
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams, and, as of recently, guests from projects that Brave partners or works with.
The latest AMA took place on June 5th and featured Jimmy Secretan, Brave’s VP of Services and Operations. Jimmy fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, like what Brave’s grand mission is, the most exciting thing his team is currently working on, and where he sees Brave in 10 years’ time. Jimmy took in suggestions from participants for Brave Ads, like implementing a broader variety of opt-ins for users—for instance, notifications to signal live sporting events—and shared what’s coming down the pipeline for Brave Rewards.
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, June 12th, and will feature guests Ian Kane (COO) and Daniel Gouldman (CEO), Founders and Co-owners of Ternio, one of Brave’s advertisers.
