Kin Developer Report – February 2021

Welcome to the very first Kin Developer Report. This monthly report will keep you updated on all the latest activities within the Kin Developer Ecosystem — everything from the latest apps to open source projects that you can contribute to. We believe that there has never been a better time to grow and connect our open source community of developers and empower them to start building with us. By highlighting the activity and vibrancy of development in the Kin Ecosystem, we hope that developers will be inspired to contribute to ongoing projects or start up their own.

Monetizing with Kin: Rave

Rave allows users to consume media across major platforms like Netflix, Disney+, YouTube, and more, all while chatting with friends and making new ones. Combining the two stickiest user experiences (video consumption and messaging), Rave has paved the way for a new type of social app. When deciding how to monetize the app, the Rave team made a conscious decision to move away from traditional advertising models, due to the lack of incentives and negative impact on user experience. Kin appealed to them because it came from a team that faced common challenges, and developed a cryptocurrency in order to address the problem of monetization while simultaneously enhancing the experience for users.

Monetizing with Kin: PeerBet

PeerBet is a social wager app that was built from the ground-up around the Kin cryptocurrency. The power of an intuitive user experience and the promise of being able to earn something real with Kin has allowed PeerBet to become a powerhouse app on the rise. When exploring how to monetize their app, the team behind PeerBet was drawn to Kin because of its potential to change the way developers interact with users – by rewarding them with Kin coin rather than simply extracting the value they create.

Monetizing with Kin: Perfect365

Monetizing with Kin: Perfect365

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.
