Series of AMAs with great projects
December was, indeed, a busy month for GetBlock. Our team held several AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) sessions. We value our guests for their time and knowledge that they shared with us. Additionally, the GetBlock team wants to thank our listeners for tuning in and asking interesting questions. Hopefully, we were able to answer all of them!
AMA with Arbitrum
In this AMA session, our Arbitrum interviewee, Nina, answered the most exciting questions related to the Arbitrum community, e.g. “How to become an Arbitrum newbie developer?”, “What’s the biggest advantage of arb over the other three L2s?” and many more. You still have a chance to give a listen to the recorded version of the AMA.
