As much as I’d love to talk, it’s going to be quite difficult for me as the AMA is at 3am for Down Under :australia:

Because of the time zones I think it would be best to have the AMA at 2pm UTC?

Special because @Symphony.One @realcoinchowder @ONEBullValidator and also @PiStake told me it’s not possible for him. Also we would love to see the question’s written answered under your own candidacy post.


Sounds good to me! I’m available.

Will be a tight call for me, but I’ll try to join. Cause I’ll enter my shift at 03 PM, and before that I’ll be at lunch. But I’ll try!
