Coinbase CEO Initiates AMA Session, Leading to Spam from DigiByte (DGB) Community

Understanding what is going on in the crypto community is essential to making healthy investment decisions.

To address some concerns in the market, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong jumped on Twitter to host an AMA session, hoping to connect with “non-troll” individuals with their own authentic questions.

He explained that the decision to speak directly with users is based on his historical lack of interactions, though he would not be answering questions about potential new listings for tokens.

The discussions started off good. Some legitimate questions came through, asking the CEO how he plans to expand cryptocurrency into mainstream culture. Others made suggestions over different platforms that he could use for Q&A sessions.

However, it did not last long. Instead, the spam started rolling in from the DigiByte community, who decided to promote their own asset instead, along with the many use cases.

Clearly, demands and spam from the DigiByte community is not what the CEO had in mind. Some of the posts encouraged Coinbase to add the token, while others just posted to voice their excitement over DigiByte in general. Finally, it reached a point where Armstrong had just had enough.

Somehow, pointing out this issue just was not enough to shut them down. If anything, even more comments started rolling, egging on the concerns. User Jared Tate, for example, attempted to change Armstrong’s concept of being spammed as meaning:

“supportive people asserting meaningfully memorable energetic dialogue.”

The community even dispelled the idea that they were a bunch of bots, as one user clarified that “WE are People,” hash-tagging the post with DigiByte’s name.

At this point, while Armstrong was able to answer quite a few questions about Coinbase itself, it looks like this type of conversation may be better held in one of the platforms recommended by the users that actually asked about the Coinbase community.
