Kin Developer Program Apps —Live in Week Four

Last month, teams in the Kin Developer Program showcased the Kin-powered experiences they created to our selection committee. Thirty-two teams were given either a green light to proceed directly to the production environment, or a yellow light where they were asked to make small changes and resubmit their demos before proceeding.

The Kin Developer Program has three milestones:

  • Milestone 1: App goes live to at least one app store within one month of Demo Day (Reward: $15,000 USD and 50,000,000 KIN)
  • Milestone 2: Reach 10,000 monthly active wallets for at least two months within one year of Demo Day (Reward: $20,000 USD and 100,000,000 KIN)
  • Milestone 3: Reach 50,000 monthly active wallets for at least two months within one year of Demo Day. (Reward: $25,000 USD and 125,000,000 KIN)

Yesterday marked the end of the first milestone, and we’re excited to share that 27 apps have officially gone live with Kin-powered experiences. 23 are available only on Android, two are available only on iOS, and two are available on both platforms. Since developers had until midnight last night to submit their live apps, some apps are still going through our internal verification process to ensure they’ve hit the milestone.
