Welcome to the fifth post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit is a six-month-long event that features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams. The goal of the series is twofold: to give fans of the project an opportunity to interact directly with team members, and to give team members—especially those who operate largely behind the scenes—a chance to share their insights and offer the community a window into their work.
The most recent AMA took place on October 17th with Yan Zhu, Brave’s Chief Information Security Officer. Over the course of the AMA, Yan fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, including how a day in her life at Brave looks, electronic music (a hobby of hers), and her thoughts on the Metamask project. Yan also divulged that she’s against tech companies building backdoors or breaking encryption to aid law enforcement and revealed that the simplest way to prove to someone who claims to be uncaring about privacy and security that they do, in fact, care is to “Ask them to hand over their phone unlocked.”
Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, October 31st, and will feature Jonathan Sampson, Brave’s Senior Developer Relations Specialist.
