Kin No-Code Plugin For Bubble Launches

We welcomed a new no-code Kin plugin for Bubble, created by the Uproll team!

The Uproll team has launched the Kin plugin for Bubble.io to make it even easier for developers to build innovative cryptocurrency based digital experiences that utilize Kin. If you’re interested in building within the Kin ecosystem but don’t have much coding experience, this Kin plugin is the perfect entry point!

Apps built with the Kin No-Code Plugin are compatible with the Kin Rewards Engine – Kin’s economic model which pays developers on a weekly basis for contributing value to the Kin Economy. Be sure to register your app on the Kin Developer Portal to obtain your unique App ID for the Kin Rewards Engine.

To further promote the endless possibilities that the Kin Plugin presents to aspiring developers in the Web3 space, the Kin Foundation is planning a hackathon to spark the creation of no-code Kin applications in the ecosystem.  Stay tuned for our upcoming hackathon announcement along with some exciting prizes to be won! In the meantime, get your creative juices flowing by browsing the Bubble app template offerings and experiment with the new experiences you can build with Kin!
