Guest AMA with Daniel Gouldman and Ian Kane of Ternio
Welcome to the nineteenth post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams, and, as of recently, guests from projects that Brave partners or works with.
The latest AMA took place on June 12th and featured Daniel Gouldman (CEO), and Ian Kane (COO), Founders and Co-owners of Ternio, one of Brave’s advertising partners for Brave Ads. Daniel and Ian fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors about Ternio and its products, namely BlockCard, a crypto debit card enabling cardholders to spend their cryptocurrency anywhere VISA is accepted, and Lexicon, a high-speed blockchain framework capable of exceeding 1 million on-chain transactions per second. The pair spoke of their near and long-term plans for the recently released BlockCard,of Dennis and Natasha, the advanced AI bots they’ve created to help run their Telegram group, and even of Daniel’s time being homeless and what the experience taught him.
Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, June 19th, and will feature Marshall Rose, Principal Engineer at Brave.
