Our fourth Citizen of the Week is Jonathan Burnham and his crypto savvy pup, Hazel. After the launch of the Flash dApp, we put out a call to our Citizens to make a creative video illustrating how to Flashstake and use the dapp. Jonathan quickly got to work, filming his dog Hazel, who just so happened to be among the first Flash dapp users. It became quite clear that Hazel’s doggo crypto wisdom was on another level, so we had to show our love to Hazel and her human as the Citizen of the Week. If you haven’t seen Hazel and Jonathan in action, check the video out below!

What do you love most about the Blockzero community? Explain a bit more about your particular niche within the Blockzero community, and how you got started?
I’m new to the community but what I have been most impressed with so far is the engagement from the team and Zach. It is fantastic to see a company looking for community input and really taking direction from them. I’m not sure what my niche is yet but I hope I can create some beautiful content that inspires others to follow these cool projects. I got started in the community by making a video about how easy it is to Flashstake.
