Developers Can Easily Integrate Buy Module In-Apps, and Users Can Purchase Kin through Kin.org

The Kin Foundation has partnered with Ramp Network’s global platform to offer various fiat-to-crypto payment solutions for Kin developers to integrate into their apps. Beginning today, Kin is available on Ramp’s “UK and Rest of World” platform, with U.S. support to follow by the end of this month. 

Ramp is a regulated crypto-payments business providing fiat infrastructure for the cryptocurrency industry – with the goal of unlocking a future where everyone can exchange value as easily and efficiently as using the internet. Ramp accepts a wide range of payment methods, including Visa, MasterCard, Apple Pay, SEPA transfers, UK Faster Payments, and more! With Kin designed for mass-adoption and fostering a community of millions of users, this partnership marks a significant step forwards via increased accessibility and ease-of-purchase.

Kin Developer Integration 

With this capability, developers can create their own fiat to Kin use-cases by utilizing Ramp’s iOS, Android and React Native SDKs for easy integration into existing apps. Ramp’s buy module widget can be implemented in under 30 minutes, while API access is also available for developers who want to build a fully customised solution.

Ramp also provides a dedicated Discord server for any technical support queries Kin developers may have, ensuring the integration process is easy & seamless. To get started, visit Ramp’s official website and dive into their “Get Started Guide”.

To celebrate the launch of this exciting partnership,  Ramp is offering the first 250,000 EUR volume of Kin transacted through Ramp on a fee-free basis. This is available first-come first-served for Kin developers who integrate Ramp into their app for their users.  Once your Ramp integration is live, speak to the Kin Foundation or the Ramp team to activate this fee-subsidy bonus for your app.

Kin Website

The Kin Website now also includes direct links to Ramp’s hosted web-module which will make the process of acquiring Kin more accessible for current community members and newcomers to the Kin ecosystem, enabling them to acquire and spend Kin in their favourite ecosystem applications. 

Purchasing Kin is easy, and can be completed in minutes. The minimum purchase via Ramp is 5 EUR (or equivalent) plus fees.

  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 e-mail address.  Generally, for low-value purchases there’s only minimal KYC requirements but you may be asked for further details depending on your transaction activity or your geographical location.
  3. Enter your payment information and confirm to complete your purchase.
  4. You’re done – it’s that easy.

Please join me in welcoming Ramp to the Kin ecosystem.
