AMA log (20 December 2019)


  • Global Moderator

    Weekly AMA with Zine Laabidine Rezig, CEO, founder, software architect and lead developer of 3DCoin / Project Districts, held on Friday 20 December 2019.

    This is a weekly AMA, so every week, every Friday, unless exceptional cases that will be communicated in advance, or unexpected events, an AMA will take place in our official international/english Telegram group.

    📋 Do not hesitate to participate in the next Friday's AMA, we are waiting for you! 📌
    👉 Telegram group: https://t.me/Project_Districts 🗨 👥


    ℹPlease note❗
    Some questions and answers could be selected and partly reworked and listed in different order or grouped by topic for editorial reasons and in general for better readability and usability, in short, an editorial cut is given but without the intention of distorting the meaning and the content.
    Of course, discussions between users that are allowed during the AMA (if they are related to the topics covered) are normally not included in the log. Only the users' questions to the CEO/LeadDev and his direct answers are shown in the log.
    Some questions are transversal to the various main topics so they have been grouped under a topic that has been considered suitable but could also be read in reference to other topics.
    For what concerns any upcoming / future partnerships, in some cases any anticipations discussed in the chat during the AMA that mentions possible names of other parties/entities (for example, other companies or exchanges) awaiting official announcements could be left out of the log as it is to be considered an informal discussion in chat and therefore could be deemed necessary to leave them to the informality of a chat. This is therefore established on a case by case basis for each AMA log.
    The main purpose of this log is to provide users with all the technical topics discussed in order to have any answers to technical and operational issues at hand, so the rest of the topics not strictly related to technical / operational questions may not find space in this log at the discretion of the content editor.
    Since the purpose of these logs that we publish is to provide users with a tool full of technical contents grouped for easy reading also outside the Telegram group, any questions that are too general (the classic "when a new exchange?" and similar questions) especially if also questions repeated in the previous AMAs or any digressions on topics not strictly related to the project are excluded from the logs to maintain a high technical profile of the same.
    However, the entire original AMA can be viewed in full, starting from the following message in the official Telegram group:

    This AMA event has also been added to CoinMarketCal, Coindar and CoinsCalendar cryptocurrency calendars:

    As happened for the previous AMA, this time too during the previous days the users of the Telegram group had the chance to post their questions in advance, so a list of questions was prepared to be answered at the beginning of the AMA. Then of course further questions were asked live during the AMA.
    The AMA questions can also be collected before each AMA in other channels (for example in our topic on BitcoinTalk, in our official Discord, in the local Telegram group of the numerous and active Italian community and so on).
