Kik Messenger’s Kin Token Integrated To Mobile Forum App Tapatalk

Announcements, News | March 28, 2019 By:

Mobile forum app Tapatalk has officially rolled out Kik messenger’s Kin token across its ecosystem.

Tapatalk is an application that allow access to Internet forums on mobile devices. It is primarily designed to provide improved forum access for mobile platforms over access provided by the forum software itself. Tapatalk’s mobile-first app for forum owners and their members is used by over 200,000 forums in 186 countries. Those forums that have connected to Tapatalk have an aggregate registered user base of 300 million people – in the range of Twitter and Reddit.

In November 2018, Tapatalk partnered with Kin to enable its users to use the cryptocurrency in forums supported by Tapatalk. The partnership will allow Tapatalk users to receive rewards for the content they add and interacting with the community, as well as gifting each other Kin for contributing to discussions.

In a press release, Tapatalk announced that it has released the latest update of its iOS and Android app, which include the official roll out of the Kin token across its ecosystem of over 200,000 forums. The release of the latest update means Tapatalk users can now earn and spend Kin. According to Tapatalk, they will soon airdrop up to 2,000 Kin to each existing Tapatalk app user to mark the integration.

“Tapatalk is focused on strengthening online communities, which aligns strongly with Kin’s vision and makes this a perfect case study for us,” said Rinat Bogin, Managing Kin Ecosystem. “With a user base in the millions, we’re pleased to introduce these forum members to Kin and help cultivate even more robust engagement while broadening Kin’s reach.”

Tapatalk said that the Kin token integration marks another significant step in the company’s mission to advance online forum communities using blockchain technology, adding that it will support greater engagement and richer contributions throughout the forum ecosystem.

“Online forums are decentralized by nature, which is why partnering with Kin to give our users the opportunity to earn and use rewards across various apps was so appealing,” said Winter Wong, CEO of Tapatalk. “We’re delighted to partner with Kin and use digital currencies to break down barriers and collectively create stronger content and more value for online communities.”
