For those who missed the watercooler chat on 4/17/23, we had a couple of awesome guests join us from Tali https://trytali.com/. They’re building an AI-powered Discord bot that can automatically answer questions. This is especially useful for Livepeer since we often get the same 10-20 questions over and over.
Tali’s goal is to create a powerful assistant that will eventually be able to act as a senior developer, not only answering questions but also assessing code and having dynamic conversations with developers based on trained data.
Tali is in its early stages, and in order for it to work well with Livepeer we need to come together as a community and aggregate FAQ’s in this thread. A good place to start is the Discord message history since that’s where most questions are asked.

Not a very comprehensive list and the answers are pretty short, but these are definitely some common questions.

A. Use a fiat onramp that supports the Arbitrum network, see Arbitrum Portal — Your Gateway into Arbitrum
Q. What are Fiat Onramps?
