Perfect365 is an augmented reality (“AR”) beauty app that allows users to perform a one-tap makeover. The team behind Perfect365 chose to monetize their app with Kin because of its potential to enhance the user experience, becoming one of the first flagship applications to integrate the cryptocurrency. With Kin, users are rewarded for their engagement via daily activities and creation of content. For example, makeup artists can receive Kin as a token of appreciation for creating new looks. Users are able to show their appreciation for these critical users of the app, not just by “liking” their creations, but by tipping them with Kin coin. By monetizing with Kin, Perfect365 is able to create a platform where users are rewarded for their engagement. Those users are then able to spend their Kin on unique user experiences suited to this digital currency model, including being able to save photos of experimental looks.
