AMA with Marshall Rose
Welcome to the twentieth post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
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 most recent AMA took place on June 19th and featured Marshall Rose, Principal Engineer at Brave. Marshall fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, such as the differences between BAT Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, the three work phases outlined in BAT Roadmap 1.0; Brave’s long-term plans for decentralization; and the status of some of Brave’s highly anticipated features, like Brave Sync and the multidirectional wallet upgrade. Marshall, who has been programming since the punch card era, also shared a valuable piece of wisdom learned over the years: “You can solve any problem if you are willing to make it small enough”—a mantra he appears to apply in earnest when faced with tasks of seeming enormity.
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 Tuesday, June 25th, and will feature Taylor Monahan, Founder of MyEtherWallet and CEO of MyCrypto, as well as Jordan Spence, CMO of MyCrypto.
