A lot of questions are being repeated during the AMA sessions on the SEED Discord. So to achieve some kind of high-level overview, here are some of the most frequently asked questions of the AMAs! Every month I will look for 20 questions that I see regularly being repeated.
If you want to see all AMA Q&A’s go to this document made by Discord user ProblematicMan. He collected all Q&A’s from the AMA sessions!
