Monthly AMA with Ted - Founder and CEO of Kin and Kik - Tuesday 2:00 PM ET

On Tuesday, September 11, 2:00 p.m. ET, we will host our monthly AMA with Ted. Prior to sharing the guidelines, we want to acknowledge that [some community members were less than thrilled](https://www.reddit.com/r/KinFoundation/comments/97ja2b/recent_ama_a_clarification_an_apology_and_some/) with the last AMA, and we want to clear the air regarding these concerns. The one question per person rule surprised some people, and we should have communicated this more clearly. The intent of the rule is to be inclusive of all members. Previous AMAs have been dominated by a few members, and as a community of 10,800 people, we want to give everyone a chance to be heard. We will continue to keep this rule. Regarding length, many have asked for one hour, stating that 30 minutes is not enough. As you can imagine, Ted has a very busy schedule, and as a project, we need to balance and manage his time effectively. We will plan to continue with 30-minute AMAs. And finally, we don’t avoid hard questions. It’s not the intent of these AMAs. Community feedback is extremely important to Kin. We appreciate all questions and will do our best to answer them. In an effort to make every AMA better than the last, we are going to try splitting this AMA into two parts: * Ted will cover the top three topics that emerged since the last AMA at the beginning to provide context. For this AMA Ted will cover: * Kin Developer Program / KRE * Wallet #4 * Kinit on iOS * The regular AMA. As a reminder Ted won’t make announcements during these AMAs. Ted is open to all questions about Kin as long as they follow the rules. In particular, he has suggested two types of questions: * 1. Questions where you want Ted’s perspective on something the has emerged in the industry. For example, “What do you think of the drop in the crypto market?” * 2. Questions that you genuinely get from critics, that if you had a better answer for them, it would help you better explain Kin to them. For example, “Isn’t Kin just a rewards program?” or “But isn’t Kin’s blockchain centralized?” or “Why isn’t there a roadmap?” What questions are you getting about Kin that Ted can help you answer? Please note that we will continue to assess the structure of these AMAs in an effort to constantly improve them. If changes need to be made, we will make them, and we promise to clearly communicate these changes so that there are no surprises. **AMA Guidelines:** * **One question per person.** The intent of the rule is to be inclusive of all members. We want to give everyone a chance to be heard. * **One question per comment**. A question in a comment thread does not qualify as a question. * **Redundant questions will not be addressed**. Please double check that your question has not been answered in this thread or in a previous AMA. * **Be respectful** **and ask constructive questions.** * **Keep questions to Kin and the project.** * **Questions about a specific individuals will be removed.** * **All questions must abide by the rules of our subreddit.** Link for the live stream of today's AMA [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCHdDkdD8yY). To help guide the discussion, here are the top updates from the past month: * We [accepted 40 developers into the Kin Developer Program](https://medium.com/kinblog/kin-developer-program-accepts-40-developers-to-grow-kin-ecosystem-6949709d4a9f) * [Kinit is now available in iOS](https://medium.com/kinblog/kinit-app-now-live-in-ios-app-store-48163c0a80d9) * Former Ethereum advisor and crypto expert [William Mougayar joined the Kin Ecosystem Foundation’s board of directors](https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/former-ethereum-foundation-special-advisor-william-mougayar-appointed-to-kin-ecosystem-foundation-board-of-directors-300701460.html)...

In spite of today’s mild pullback under $7,250 the good signs of a long term bull rally keep stacking up for Bitcoin. The weekly chart shows that the MACD has turned bullish for the first time this year after a bullish crossover and divergence in July 2018. Combine this with the 100 day moving average (MA) approaching a bull cross with the 200-MA and the fact that the 50-day MA has already crossed above the 100 and 200-day MA and the situation is beginning to look favorable to bulls over the long-term.

Daily Berminal Brief (9/3/18): Bitcoin Reaches $7,300 Target and a Handful of Altcoins Hold on to Their Recent Gains

1) Speaking to CNBC, Tom Lee said that bitcoin would possibly trade at $20,000 at the end of this year. He said this would be attributed to emerging ETFs and the asset's strong performance. Additionally, he said the contributing factor would also be the decline of the US dollar due to the US conflict with countries like Iran, China, Turkey; as a result, the Federal Reserve will slow the policy on interest rate hike, making people resort to bitcoin and increase its prices. 2) The report released by the ICO advisory firm Satis Group has made the news cycle rounds and caused a lot of stir. From claiming many ICO’s and utility tokens will go bust while currency and privacy coins like Monero (XMR) will be the best performers, they also made some price predictions as to where the market is headed. One of the more near term predictions is that the cryptocurrency market will reach a total market cap valuation of $1 Trillion by 2021, indicating that the market will increase in value more than four times its current value of nearly $240 Billion over the next couple of years. 3) Most cryptocurrency investors are aware of the rather unique relationship between Tether (USDT) and BitFinex and the rumors of manipulation will begin to churn again as $100 million USDT are currently en route to Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange. Hundreds of millions of USDT were sent to various exchanges during the height of the 2017 bull run and researchers and regulators point to the ‘manipulation’ as the reason for BTC reaching an all high. The most recent transfers of USDT led to significant leaps in BTC price. A July 24 transfer was followed by a $800 movement and the most recent infusion (August 21) lead to a $650 pop in BTC price. It is yet to be determined what the impact of today’s transfer will be but traders will certainly be keeping a close eye on the charts. (Read more at the Berminal's Medium page)
