Announcing our Seventh Blockzero Citizen of the Week, Groot!

Each week, we’re going to dedicate an interview-style blog by highlighting one of our standout Blockzero Citizens, giving you a moment in the spotlight. Who knows, there might even be other nifty rewards for winners down the line!

How to win? Just keep doing you. Share high-quality feedback, content, and keep going above and beyond in our dedicated Blockzero social media channels and forum. We’ll notice you!

Our seventh Citizen of the Week is Groot!

Groot (who’d rather remain anonymous) has been a constant, soothing and helpful presence throughout all of our XIO/Blockzero social channels, primarily being a support champion for all things that go down in our Telegram channels. As you can see in the adjacent images, he’s been one our most active Citizens over the past week in our Flash Telegram group, as well as the most active in our Blockzero Support Telegram.

I’m sure if you’re a somewhat active community member, you’ve chatted with him before, and we wanted to take this week to finally recognize his consistent contributions!
