Community Updates from January
The month of January presented us with many events for Beam and the community. The first birthday celebration for Beam, combined with our first halving, made for an exciting start to the year. Beam Ambassadors managed to attend a number of great events to continue to build a strong community.
Some highlights from the last month:
Obinna represented on the panel at the OKEx event, The Blockchain Talk, in Nakuru, Kenya.
Agbona and Niran headed down to the Startup Grind event to keep up to date with the Tech scene in Lagos.
Our lovely Kévine brought the techies of Benin Republic up to speed with Beam and the up and coming Confidential Assets.
Bobby Ong got up-close and personal with Alexander Zaidelson and Alex Romanov in the CoinGecko Podcast.
