Kin enables the free and instant transfer of value between users, no matter how small the amount. This lets users give something more meaningful than a like, making your app even more fun and engaging.
There is an entire ecosystem of apps that use Kin. You get new users coming to your app from across the ecosystem, and get paid when your users go out and do the same.
Kin is a cryptocurrency. With only so much of it, Kin becomes more valuable as more people spend it. That’s why you get paid when your users spend Kin, letting you make money while also improving user experience.
The Ultimate Win-Win.
Kin is built, grown, and governed by us, the developers who are part of 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.

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
