Join Gavin Andresen, Chief Scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation, for a Reddit AMA Today

October 21, 2014 11:07 UTC

Gavin Andresen, Chief Scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation, will hold a Reddit AMA later today at 11am Eastern Time (8am Pacific Time, 4pm UK, 5pm Continental Europe).

It isn’t clear whether the AMA will take place on r/bitcoin or r/IAmA, so keep watching both subreddits.

AMA means “Ask Me Anything” – Reddit users can ask the host all sorts of questions about any topic. Reddit AMAs use the site’s comment system for both questions and answers, and are similar to online text-only press conferences open to all Reddit users. Many celebrities have hosted Reddit AMAs to connect with a global online audience, including President Barack Obama in 2012, Julian Assange, Bill Gates, and Madonna.

If you want to ask something to Gavin, about Bitcoin or anything else, today is your chance. If you want to attend, but you are not a Reddit user, you should create a Reddit account and try to get familiar with the user interface before Gavin’s AMA.
