Purchase KIN directly from Kin.org + Developer API Tool Access

The Kin Foundation is excited to announce our partnership with Simplex. Without further ado – Kin is now available to be purchased directly through Kin.org.

Simplex is an EU-licensed financial institution, providing fiat infrastructure for the cryptocurrency industry – with the goal of making cryptocurrency accessible for everyone. Simplex accepts a wide range of payment methods, including Visa, MasterCard, Apple Pay, SWIFT, SEPA, and more! 

The Kin Website buy module provided by Simplex, will make the process of acquiring Kin more accessible for both current community members and newcomers to the Kin ecosystem to acquire and spend in your favourite ecosystem applications. 

Purchasing Kin is now as easy as a few steps, and can be completed in a matter of minutes. Simplex transactions are fast & efficient, with a typical process timing of 10-30 minutes in regular circumstances. They also offer 24/7 customer support to answer questions, and help with any technical issues users may encounter. 

  1. Enter your Kin deposit address from your favourite Kin app or preferred wallet that supports the KIN SPL token along with the amount of KIN you would like to purchase.
  2. Enter your Debit or Credit (VISA & Mastercard accepted) payment information.
  3. Confirm payment and complete your purchase. 
  4. You’re done – it’s that easy.

(Note that in some cases, there might be a KYC process after Step #2).

Last but not least, now that Kin is available on the Simplex platform, any Kin developer can register with Simplex to gain access to Simplex’s buy module or API tools to create their own fiat to Kin purchase use cases. If this is of interest, please note that Simplex imposes a $40 US minimum purchase. 

*Editor’s note: An earlier version of this announcement stated Kin would be available immediately on Simplex Banking. Simplex Banking access for the Kin community is still being explored and is not yet available.
