MediaLab To Continue With Kin After Kik Messenger Acquisition

Last week, Kik messenger announced that it was acquired by MediaLab, the company behind other popular apps such as Whisper, DatPiff, and Manga Life. After the acquisition, MediaLabs has now confirmed that they will continue with the development of Kin cryptocurrency. The SEC is currently investigating kin for its token sale. However, that is not stopping MediaLab from it. The deal should still be safe because the Kin foundation is separate from the messenger. Kin (KIN) is priced at $0.000006, losing 7.66% in the last 24 hours. (VS)

Kik Announces It’s ‘Here to Stay’ in Apparent Reversal of Fortunes

Canadian social media and messaging app Kik has revealed it’s “here to stay,” in an apparent reversal of earlier plans to shut down amid legal difficulties. In an official tweet posted on Oct. 13, the company announced: “Great news: Kik is here to stay!!!!AND there’s some really exciting plans for making the app even better. More details coming soon. Stay tuned.” “More soon” and “stay tuned” As previously reported, Kik had been embroiled in a costly legal battle with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over its initial coin offering’s designation, with the regulator suing the company for having conducted an allegedly unregistered $100 million token offering. Having pared down its workforce from 151 to just 19 and mulled a complete shutdown — according to a blog post from CEO Ted Livingston late last month — the company closed the Kik X beta platform on Sept. 27. Yet the first hint of a turn in fortunes emerged on Oct. 7, when Livingston tweeted: “Some exciting news: we may have found a home for Kik! We just signed an LOI [letter of intention] with a great company. They want to buy the app, continue growing it for our millions of users, and take the Kin integration to the next level. Not a done deal yet, but could be a great win win. More soon” Down to the bone With further details of the game-changing deal still to be announced, Kik’s apparent decision to close had meanwhile been harshly criticized among community members. The Kin cryptocurrency has also seen a steady decline — no doubt in part due to broader market conditions, yet unlikely helped by the company’s seemingly intractable difficulties. Kin token 3-month chart, as of Oct. 14, 2019.

Kik Announces Good News Despite Prior Plans to Shut Down

The Canadia social media messaging app has experienced a rough round of legal troubles over the course of this year. Luckily for the firm though they have been able to announce that they are here to stay following a reversal of earlier plans to shut down due to said legal problems. The company announced the news on Twitter yesterday stating: “Great news: Kik is here to stay!!!!AND there’s some really exciting plans for making the app even better. More details coming soon. Stay tuned.” Previous reports have surfaced on Kik saying that the firm had been embroiled in a costly legal battle with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, which crypto enthusiasts know of too well. With the regulator suing the firm over its initial coin offering designation and conducting an allegedly unregistered $100 million token offering. Having pared down its workforce from over 150 to less than twenty, the company closed the Kik X beta platform on September 27th. However, the hint of a turn in fortunes surfaced last week on 7th October after Livingston tweeted: “Some exciting news: we may have found a home for Kik! We just signed an LOI [letter of intention] with a great company. They want to buy the app, continue growing it for our millions of users, and take the Kin integration to the next level. Not a done deal yet, but could be a great win win. More soon”. With more details of the game-changing deal still to be announced, Kik's decision to close had meanwhile been badly criticised among community members. The Kin cryptocurrency has also seen a big steady decline which is no doubt in part due to broader market conditions. It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.

Kik Revives Messaging App in Sudden Turn of Events

After announcing that the Kik messenger app was being shuttered, Ted Livingston's has reversed course. The Kik Twitter account announced in a tweet: "Great news: Kik is here to stay!!!! AND there’s some really exciting plans for making the app even better. More details coming soon. Stay tuned." Kik has taken on the U.S. SEC in court, which has depleted many resources and led CEO Ted Livingston in recent weeks to suggest that the Kik app would be shut down altogether. After a wave of layoffs, and the possible introduction of a white knight to save the ailing company, Kik is back. Earlier this month, Kik revealed that it signed a letter of intent for a "great company" to acquire the Kik app. (CJ)

Ted Livingston States Kik Messenger Is Not Shutting Down

Coinspeaker Ted Livingston States Kik Messenger Is Not Shutting DownAt the end of September, we reported that a popular messaging app Kik made the world reel with the announcement about shutting down. At that time, Kik CEO Ted Livingston explained this decision with the company’s downturn position and the necessity to focus more on the development of its Kin (KIN) token. The company was also planning to cut down the number of its employees from over 100 people to a 19 person team. Besides, Kik has a legal battle against the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which dramatized Kik’s business even more.To remind of the SEC lawsuit, Kik was sued by the US regulating agency for conducting an illegal $100 million securities offering of digital tokens. The SEC charged that Kik sold the tokens to U.S. investors without registering their offer and sale as the U.S. securities laws require.The company had two options: either to label Kin security or fight the Commission in court. The choice preference was battle, however, working on Kin development will also continue.Admittingthat the decision was really a hard one, Livingston said:“But no matter what happens to Kik, Kin is here to stay. Kin operates on an open, decentralized infrastructure run by a dozen independent companies. Kin is a currency used by millions of people in dozens of independent apps. So while the SEC might be able to push us around, taking on the broader Kin Ecosystem will be a much bigger fight. And the Ecosystem is close to adding a lot more firepower.”On September 27, Kik X beta was scheduled to take place the last time, and everybody was setting their heart on Kik’s shutting down on October 19. But yesterday, an announcement from the company gave new hope to its supporters: Kik wrote on its Twitter that it is going to stay. The post was met with joyfulness.Great news: Kik is here to stay!!!!AND there’s some really exciting plans for making the app even better. More details coming soon. Stay tuned. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉— Kik (@Kik) October 13, 2019This tweet follows an announcement made by Ted Livingston on October 7:Some exciting news: we may have found a home for Kik! We just signed an LOI with a great company. They want to buy the app, continue growing it for our millions of users, and take the Kin integration to the next level. Not a done deal yet, but could be a great win win. More soon https://t.co/SeLjf9bEaG— Ted Livingston (@ted_livingston) October 7, 2019Kik seems to be dead set on its existential struggle, and hopefully, the company will win a skirmish.About KikLet us remind you that Kik is a cross-platform mobile application developed by the Canadian company Kik Interactive and used for instant messaging in 230 countries. Being one of the most popular messengers in the US, it has over 300 million registered users, about 40% of them are US teenagers.In 2017, Kik entered the crypto industry and launched an ICO, where it managed to raise $100 million from the sale of its Kin tokens. To popularize the tokens, Kik partnered with Unity Technologies to allow game developers to use Kin cryptocurrency to rewards the players.Ted Livingston States Kik Messenger Is Not Shutting Down

SEC Halts $1.7 Billion Telegram ICO

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States has announced that they have filed an emergency action and obtained a temporary restraining order against Telegram for the USD 1.7 billion Grams initial coin offering (ICO). Apparently, during the ICO 1 billion Grams tokens were sold to 39 investors in the United States, violating federal securities regulations. The reason this emergency order coming now is that the Grams purchased in the ICO were to be distributed on October 31, at which point billions of Grams would have illegally flooded the United States market. The SEC is seeking a complete disgorgement, i.e. refund, of the USD 1.7 billion raised during the ICO, in addition to civil penalties, retroactive interest, and a permanent injunction. Telegram was seeking to create a blockchain-based ecosystem called the Telegram Open Network (TON). However, this SEC lawsuit has the potential to kill TON and the associated Grams token before it ever launches and actually puts Telegram itself at significant risk. This case is perhaps similar to the SEC lawsuit against the Kin ICO, which was operated by the popular Kik messaging app. In that case, Kik ended up having to shut down after losing vast sums of money in a legal battle with the SEC.

Social Media Mentions of ‘Altcoin Season’ Tank in October, Data

Social media mentions of “altcoin season” were fewer and far between in the past weeks, after several crashes almost erased the gains made in 2019. Altcoins gave way to growing Bitcoin (BTC) maximalism, as the leading coin outperformed most smaller assets. Hopes for Altcoin Season Seem Lost Research by The TIE shows that mentions of “altcoin season” on social media dropped like a rock in October. After surging between June and September to an all-time high, mentions of altcoins and altseason in crypto headlines have quickly crashed to an all-time low. pic.twitter.com/UQNMytzsjd — The TIE (@TheTIEIO) October 6, 2019 The loss of hope worsened after BTC tanked under $8,000 during the start of October. But there are altcoins that break the trend, and some that remain encouragingly stable. On some days, altcoins even manage to rally, though without inspiring too much hope. The failure of the KIN token, which is sinking to rock bottom, reminded investors that some altcoins remain highly risky despite the big promises. The question still remains on whether altcoins can stage a rally similar to that in 2017. Bitcoin Dominance Looks Shakier An “altcoin season” usually pushes down the dominance of BTC, and altcoins make gains in Satoshi terms. But the markets have evolved in the past year, with some altcoins gaining direct markets against dollar-pegged coins. As stablecoins flow into altcoin pairs, some assets manage to outperform and show significant liquidity. Currently, BTC receives more than $2 billion of inflows from Tether (USDT), but the leading altcoins also draw in almost the same amount of liquidity. But despite the lowered expectations, an altcoin season could catch the markets by surprise. In fact, there are those that see altcoins making forays and promising more significant potential gains from current lows. The BTC index of market capitalization dominance, as calculated by Coinmarketcap, is down to 66.7%, diminishing since a recent high above 71%. The index moves opposite to expert predictions of 90% dominance by the end of 2019, supporting the expectation for an altcoin rally. One way experienced #cryptotraders predict the possibility of an #altcoin season is by looking at the #BitcoinDominanceIndex, which strongly suggests an incoming #altseason. This tells us that #altcoins are rising in value against bitcoin. https://t.co/g8MVOMf02S pic.twitter.com/rVFMRT9m1S — MoonX (@MoonX555) October 7, 2019 Additionally, the BTC fear and greed index fell again toward 27 points, after reaching a recent peak at 41 points with a more positive sentiment. With expectations of sliding to new lows, BTC is less attractive and more of a risk in comparison to the altcoin market. BTC may also be affected by the recently launched Bakkt futures market, while altcoins still allow for less restrained price discovery. The long bear market for altcoins also helped clear the selection of assets, by depressing the least competitive ones. The market was also cleared from some assets that were problematic on the US markets due to their uncertain status as potential unregistered securities. What do you think about a potential altcoin season? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
