ETHNews reached out to ConsenSys CMO Amanda Gutterman about the AMA event and she stated:
“I'm looking forward to a lively conversation and an opportunity to share exciting news and updates about ConsenSys projects and Ethereum. 2017 is the year of Ethereum. Between game-changing developments like sharding and proof of stake, and the planned launch of decentralized products and services that are poised to make a big impact, this is the year. And with the birth of Enterprise Ethereum - since Ethereum is increasingly becoming adopted as the de facto blockchain by Fortune 500 companies and other large enterprises - there is no better time to prepare (and not from just the blockchain ‘geeks,’ but also tech enthusiasts, developers, and investors) for the upcoming decentralized Web 3.0.”
Gutterman also told ETHNews that she will be tweeting during the AMA via @ConsenSysLLC.
