Money for the Digital World

A new way to engage, grow, and create new experiences for your digital community. The ultimate win-win.


Kin is a cryptocurrency with an amazing array of built-in functionality and programmability. When you implement Kin, you enrich your user experience with new possibilities.


Design engaging and valuable user experiences, and let your users see the benefits and utility of Kin. These engagements contribute to the creation and well-being of an interconnected Kin digital economy.


When the Kin ecosystem grows, you grow. Increase the value of your app and utility of Kin, creating a positive cycle of growth that benefits the entire Kin Ecosystem — a rising tide lifts all boats.

The Ultimate Win-Win.

Kin is built, grown, and governed by us, the developers who make up the ecosystem. We are a diverse group ranging from small startups to billion dollar apps. We have the scars of building for platforms that change their minds, and we have resisted the temptation to turn our users into the product. We built Kin to change the game. We built Kin to create a more fair digital world.

Our ecosystem is growing. Developers are joining, users are adopting, and value is being created. This is what happens when there is a way to win together.

Luc Hendricks, Founder, KinFit

“If it wasn’t for Kin my app wouldn’t exist. It gave me the tools, a community of users, and a business model to build a profitable app from the ground up. I don’t think people fully understand yet how powerful the KRE is: an incentive to build on the blockchain and make the currency more valuable which is equivalent to Bitcoin’s mining.”

Josh Doner, Cofounder, Kin Ads

“We are advocating for a better future where the internet is more competitive and consumers are compensated for their time/attention. Kin Ecosystem participants want a “social graph” like effect for value, where the value created by the network effect accrues at the network level vs concentrated to just Facebook, Apple and Google shareholders.”

Bryan Lahartinger, Developer, Kik

“As we head towards the end of 2020 and into the new year I’m excited about a smooth transition of Kin to the Solana blockchain and the new growth in the ecosystem that will enable. The new open source Kin tooling to make this happen has been fun and challenging to contribute to. Our team is excited to be a part of this growing ecosystem.”

Lee Huk, Creator, Cuppa Kin

“The Kin Community is unified and vibrant. It has proven its resilience through difficult times and continuously displays passion and creativity. The Kin Community offers anyone the opportunity to come together, work together, and build meaningful bonds while all sharing in the value we create together. That’s an achievement in itself and something to be proud of.”
