Hey fam,
Welcome to the first talk of the series! /u/jtnichol and I just got off the phone! We had a great conversation thanks to the questions submitted. I’m using the built-in webcam so low resolution, but the audio quality is quite decent.

  • Do you see yourself moderating /r/ethtrader in 5 years ?
  • What was the ETH bullish trend that you’ve enjoyed the most in our sub ?
  • Was there any moment that price action and consequent reactions to it in our sub discussions made you feel that you wouldn’t want to be a Moderator anymore ?
  • How much did your work as Moderator increase from January 2017 to May-June 2017 (/r/ethtraderexploded maybe 10x in subscriptions during that timeframe) ?
