Guest AMA with Alex Wilson & Patrick Duffy of The Giving Block
Welcome to the twenty-second 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 July 17th, and featured guests Alex Wilson and Patrick Duffy, Co-founders of The Giving Block. Alex and Patrick addressed both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors on a variety of topics, including the potential short and long-term benefits of integrating blockchain and crypto with the non-profit sector. To that end, the pair discussed the importance of public education needed to dispel apprehension surrounding blockchain and its technology, and expressed eagerness to lead by example. Alex and Patrick also spoke of their involvement in Brave’s Ad Grants program, an initiative they are using to bring attention to crypto-friendly nonprofits, such as Code to Inspire and the Human Rights Foundation, through Brave.
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, July 24th, and will feature Corey Caplan, President and Co-founder, and Adam Knuckey, Vice President and Co-founder of Dolomite.
