You may have seen some of my Q&A videos posted to YouTube and wondered where they come from. Some of them come from monthly Livestream Q&A sessions with people who support me on Patreon. (We call Patrons what they are: Community Builders.) Recently, Community Builders voted to open up these sessions to anyone who wants to join. This community is made up of incredible people, and I’m so grateful to have their support. Last week we had our first open monthly Livestream. It went so well, I’ve decided to have a few more bonus Q&A sessions over the next few weeks.
Bonus sessions are a bit different from the regular monthly Q&A. They are shorter, only 30-45 minutes, and each session will have a focused topic; this week it’s security. However, like the regular Q&A sessions, most of the questions I answer will come from Community Builders. I’ll use several questions that they have submitted and voted on through our voting platform to get the session started, and then I’ll take a few follow-up questions from the Livestream chat too.
Why are you doing this?
Right now, many of us are distanced from our typical communities: our local friends, our workplaces, and even our family members, because of COVID-19. For this reason, it feels like our digital communities are especially important right now. This will give us the opportunity to connect while many of us are social distancing or quarantined.
You may already know that my mission is to educate as many people as possible about #Bitcoin and open blockchain technologies. Participating in these Livestream sessions is one way to do that. Thank you for being part of this mission.
