Kik’s crypto applications started to appear on Apple and Google Stores
According to the reports, numerous mobile apps developed around kin which is the cryptocurrency developed and introduced by mobile messaging app Kik are rapidly growing.
Ten of the applications are already out and more will be launched as the Google play store and iOS stores have started approving them. As per the reports, more than 30 applications are anticipated to launch in the upcoming weeks.
Kin was created by the Canadian messaging app firm Kik. In order to boost up the project, Kik increased $98 million in the 2017’s initial coin offerings (ICOs).
Earlier in this summer, the company revealed that it would support the teams that are developing the apps which are created to allow the users to use and earn its token.
Ayelet Laub- the product manager working on the Kin ecosystem stated to the Coindesk that we are trying to develop such an ecosystem where you can acquire a kin in one application and spend it on another application.
Many of the apps released fall in the classic categories with which the mobile users are familiar with. Although this provides the benefit of familiarity it has the disadvantage of having to compete with big authorities in the market.
Following are the apps which are presently available on the Google Play: Kinguist (language learning), Reveald (dating), GoChallenge.me (social goals),Nearby (networking), AddMe (business networking), Vent (mental health),Find (travel networking), and Kinny (social tipping). Two applications are currently available on the iOS: Blastchat (instant messaging) and Pause for (productivity).
All these apps offer direct ways to obtain and spend the kin as needed by the developer program.
Earlier it was reported that more than 200 teams registered to join the program. Finally, out of them, forty were chosen and 32 made it to the end in the developer program to introduce their apps to either iOS or Google Play stores.
