We’ve been monitoring a lot of the other projects’ token distribution events, and it’s critical that you protect yourself against scams, like phishing emails that pretend to be from the project. We want you to have a safe experience when you participate in Kin’s token distribution event. Here are some steps to take when you’re corresponding or interacting with Kin:
- The Kin website (kin.kik.com) is the only place where you can get information about Kin. While we may post announcements on other channels — like Medium, Reddit, and Slack — we will always direct you to the Kin website for the actual token sale.
- We are not proactively offering Kin pre-sales, so if you receive an email or message asking you to take part in a pre-sale, it may be a scam. Again, all information about Kin will only be posted to kin.kik.com.
- Some scammers create fake websites that can appear to be the actual project site. Changing one letter or adding an extra letter to a URL is hard to catch at a glance. To ensure you’re going to the real Kin website, manually type this domain address into your browser: kin.kik.com. This is safer than simply clicking on a link that you see in an email or message.
Please be vigilant and aware of phishing websites. If you have questions about Kin or about how to stay safe in one of our channels, we’re here to help: firstname.lastname@example.org.
