Popular Forum Hosting Network Will Integrate Kin SDK on the Solana Blockchain

The Kin Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting the ecosystem of developers adopting the Kin cryptocurrency, is excited to unveil that popular forum hosting network Tapatalk will be re-joining the Kin Ecosystem.

Originally joining the Kin Ecosystem in 2018, Tapatalk is a mobile-first community boasting 200,000+ forums trusted and used by millions of users around the world.

Given Tapatalk’s prominence within the mobile community space, and Kin’s leading role as the #1 Cryptocurrency SDK for mobile as ranked by Apptopia, this partnership marks a significant milestone towards growing Kin’s in-app economy. 

Due to Kin’s recent developments and milestones, Tapatalk will be re-integrating Kin to further strengthen their mobile app community, empowering users to earn the token by completing meaningful tasks such as setting up their profile, following others, and contributing content. Tapatalk users will also be able to spend Kin by gifting it to other users for creating great content. Tapatalk also plans to add user deposits, so that users can independently acquire and spend their Kin within the app.

Tapatalk will be upgrading to the latest version of the Kin SDK on the Solana blockchain, enabling consumer-scale apps such as theirs to transact at lightning fast speeds, with minimal-to-no fees.

Kin’s plug-and-play SDKs are designed to be easily integrated across mobile and web Apps, with a built-in incentive model – the Kin Rewards Engine, that rewards developers for increased usage. 

Kin recently completed its migration to the Solana blockchain, accounting for possibly the largest wallet migration in cryptocurrency history with close to 60 million – resulting in the largest number of accounts of any Solana project by far.

Tapatalk’s launch with Kin is targeted for early September, which will allow users to begin earning and spending the Kin token. Download Tapatalk for iOS or Android.
