Beam + Binance + AMA = ‎️‍🔥‎️‍🔥‎️‍🔥

The AMA event took place in the Binance Telegram channel, with many a new and old Beamers joining in. The event was broken into three sections: intro, quiz, and questions from the community. As always, Romanov gave some great insights into what is happening with Beam and where we are heading.

That being said, given the plethora of questions, it was not possible to get to them all… Lucky for us, we have diligent supporters that don’t let such things get passed. NuMorlock hit us with a highlight of missed questions, along with some of his own, which prompted it’s very own Beam Pulse NuMorlock edition!

Alex takes us through the questions in depth, giving a great breakdown of those missed. We have some exciting Beam Pulse and Beam Talk episodes coming up, so if you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to Beam TV!
