Hello, Willie Wang, VP of Product at Abra here to answer questions you might have about Abra. I’m joined by Matt Helmer, PM at Abra, who will be helping answer questions. We’ll be here taking questions for the next 24 hours to make sure our international friends have time to catch this AUA.
We’ve made some significant product updates to our app — most notably the general release of our latest feature, the ability to invest in stocks and equities using Bitcoin. (Note this feature is only available outside of the US currently.) We’re excited to get feedback from the Bitcoin community about this next use case for Bitcoin...and anything else you’d like to ask us about Abra and how the product works.

Edit: getting late here in the bay area, so we will resume in the morning to answer as many questions as we can tomorrow. Thanks for all the thoughtful questions so far, and apologies to those still waiting for a reply!
