The Kin Foundation had an amazing time meeting other builders at Solana Hacker House Barcelona which was held between June 22nd to June 26th of last month. Representing the Kin Foundation were CTO Bram Borggreve and Lead Backend Engineer, Alex Ramirez. The Hacker House is a five-day offline event where developers come together to collaborate, share learnings and present their projects to the developer community. 

Of course, for the Kin Foundation it was a great opportunity to educate the audience about Kin, share insights on our development pathway along with announcing the new and powerful developer tools coming for the Kin Ecosystem.   

The team gave a presentation which provided an introduction to Kin, its history, prominence in terms of holders, active users, and overall transactions on Solana, and the path forward along with the Kin Rewards Engine and Kinetic – the next generation of API and SDK for the Kin Ecosystem. The feedback from the audience was very positive and many teams stayed in touch after the event to learn about potential opportunities to contribute.

We also gave out Kreechures to NFT enthusiasts, showcasing the Kreechures play-to-earn game, and highlighting how easy it is to engage with a fun Kin Ecosystem application and earn Kin. Thanks to Kreechures for being a part of this promotion!

As Solana continues to host more events in the future, these are great opportunities for the Kin Foundation or Kin community members to create awareness of what you’re working on and also connect with others to see what you can build together.

If you plan on being in attendance at an upcoming Solana event, give us a shout!
