It’s been a busy month. On June 27, we added new Kin experiences into Kik, and more Kik users are earning and spending Kin everyday. And last week, we rolled out the Kin Developer Program. We’re happy to share that applications from smart, motivated developers are already pouring in from around the world.

Today, we’re taking another step towards making Kin the most used cryptocurrency in the world: Kinit Beta for Android is now available for download.

Kinit is the first publicly available app dedicated to Kin. Our goal with Kinit is to get Kin into more consumers’ hands. It’s a major step towards making crypto truly consumer-friendly through fun and engaging experiences, and we plan to learn and iterate based on real-world user behavior. We’re excited to get even more people earning and spending Kin — all on the Kin Blockchain.

The Kinit Experience

Kinit is an intuitive and streamlined app designed for an active user experience. We envision a digital world where cryptocurrency is something you use daily, or even hourly. With Kinit, we intend to prove that Kin can power everyday value exchange in consumer apps.

Kinit is a simple, lightweight experience with a few basic features. After downloading the app, users will be prompted to set up their wallet in a few quick steps. Once this is done, they’ll be offered their first way to earn Kin: a survey. Users will then have access to the Kin Marketplace Beta where they have the opportunity to spend the Kin they earn on gift cards from brands and retailers like Amazon, AMC Theaters, and Google Play. You’ll also be able to transfer Kin from one user to another within Kinit.

In the coming months, we intend to expand the ways consumers can earn and spend Kin. Download the app and start earning and spending Kin today.
