Official BAT Telegram is Now for Announcements Only

Our official BAT Telegram channel launched in March 2018. In a little over a year, the channel has grown to over 14,000 members. 

As of today, we’re changing our official BAT Telegram (@BATProject) into an Announcements channel. Community members within Telegram can follow new updates from the project, but will not be able to post directly in the main chat. 

While we have enjoyed the many discussions that took place on Telegram, the BAT Community Forum—part of our new home at https://batcommunity.org—provides a much more productive and collaborative space for community members to discuss, organize and help others learn about BAT. There, users can better coordinate to support creators, grow the ecosystem, and make the best community in crypto even better. Together. 

This change is part of a new chapter in our community that expands upon the success of our BAT Community AMAs, and will bring new content, meetups and opportunities to build and foster community engagement. 

We encourage everyone to come collaborate and participate in quality discussion at https://forum.batcommunity.org, and to check out our new home at https://batcommunity.org

Looking forward to the discussion!
