Send & Receive Kin Tips on Any Social Platform

Welcome a new app to the Kin Ecosystem – PIP!

PIP is a free web-browser extension that aims to bridge the gap between the Web3 and Web2 worlds – allowing users to freely tip creators with their preferred cryptocurrency.

If you’ve ever wanted to easily tip a content creator or influencer for the amazing content/entertainment they’ve created, PIP provides a simple & easy method of doing this across any social platform including Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Twitch, YouTube, Discord, Twitch & many more. 

We are excited to announce that PIP has officially integrated Kin, allowing users to easily send & receive KIN across any social media platform via PIP Quick Pay.

With Kin’s prominence in the cryptocurrency micro-transtraction space, this integration with PIP is a natural step toward empowering users & content creators towards a truly user-first Web3 economy.

Getting Started with PIP & Kin

You can sign-up for PIP now and begin sending & receiving Kin to your friends and family in minutes. 

  1. Install PIP Chrome browser extension
  2. Connect your Phantom wallet to PIP
  3. Connect your Twitter or Twitch account

Once you’ve signed up for your free PIP account, you can create your unique Solana tag (eg. Thomas@Solana) which replaces the standard wallet address for an improved P2P transaction experience.

Important: If you’re sending KIN to anyone via your preferred social platform, make sure to notify the receiver so that they can download the PIP browser-extension themselves to claim the transaction. At the moment, no notification will be sent to the recipient unless they have a PIP account already set-up. If the receiver does not claim the transaction within 7 days, the crypto will be sent back to the sender.
