Announcing a New Executive Director for the Kin Foundation
Alim Khamisa introduces himself upon joining the Kin Foundation. — Alim Khamisa, Kin Foundation Executive Director I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve joined the Kin Foundation as Executive Director. The Kin Foundation is dedicated to supporting the Kin Ecosystem, which comprises a thriving community of apps, developers, content creators, and millions of active users that earn, spend, and ultimately benefit from the use of Kin. For background, a bit about myself. Over the last several years, my long-held passion for blockchain technology has led me to become deeply involved in the crypto universe across many aspects. My journey began in large scale crypto mining, after which I joined several blockchain startups in leadership, strategy, operational, or advisory roles. In addition to teaching in the Blockchain Development Program at George Brown College, I also play a lead role in organizing the DeFi Toronto community with my fellow meetup co-founders and actively contribute to research with a chapter on Token Economies being published in a compendium later this year. A number of factors drove my decision to join the Kin Foundation. Notably, I was impressed by its highly engaged community, the significant level of economic activity across its ecosystem, and the opportunity to pursue my deep interest in Web 3.0 and Token Economies. I see Kin as an essential innovator bridging Web 2.0 business models into the Web 3.0 er...

Kin is Now Available on Serum
Kin Foundation Announces a Market Making Partnership with Alameda Research. — The Kin Foundation is pleased to announce that Alameda Research will provide liquidity for the Kin cryptocurrency on Serum, a fast-transaction throughput decentralized exchange with trustless cross-chain trading. Project Serum is a high-performance protocol that powers an independent ecosystem of exchanges and markets that bridge crypto-ecosystems such as Ethereum and Solana. By allowing Kin to be featured on Serum, Kin users will gain more market accessibility and the ability to experience Serum via a variety of wallets and GUIs such as Bonfida, Sollet, Solong or Serum Pro. This new development is one of the early outcomes of the Kin ecosystem migration to the Solana blockchain, enabling Kin to continue growing as one of the most used cryptocurrency by mainstream consumers. “Adding Kin to Serum was a logical decision,” said Sam Bankman-Fried, Founder and CEO of Alameda Research, “Given the successful migration to Solana, and the scale of their daily active users, it is a project that we have been keeping our eyes on.” “Serum is the fastest-growing DEX on Solana,” said William Mougayar, Executive Chairman of the Kin Foundation, “Following Kin interest from the Asian markets, and our desire to harness the potential of the Solana blockchain, we welcome our partnership with Alameda Research.” — How to Use Kin on Serum. &m...
Kin Foundation Newsletter: December 2020 Edition
Kin Foundation Newsletter: December 2020 — Kin is migrating to Solana! Are you ready?. — Reminder: Kin is migrating to the Solana blockchain on December 8th, enabling it to continue growing as one of the most used cryptocurrencies by mainstream consumers. In this newsletter, we feature what you need to know if you are holding Kin. In a nutshell, on the morning of December 8th, snapshots of token accounts and balances will be copied on the Solana blockchain, then the Kin blockchain will stop confirming transactions. Immediately after, the Solana blockchain will take over and start confirming transactions. However, this migration will not be instant. Since there are over 55 million Kin wallets, it might take 1–2 days before your token account shows up on Solana, while the Solana network processes all of these new account creations. Rest assured, no Kin will be lost during the migration, but what you need to do will depend on where and how you are holding your Kin. Aside from being on the eve of this important migration, the Kin Foundation updated its Board Governance. William Mougayar is now Executive Chairman, succeeding Ted Livingston who remains a Director, and Matt Hannam has joined as a third Director. To make sure you are prepared, here are some starting point steps. In addition, you can always refer to this permanent page on our website, covering the migration:If you still hold ERC-20 Kin (Ethereum) toke...

Announcing Kin Support for Five New Wallets
Announcing Kin Support in Five New Wallets The migration to Solana will enable Kin to continue growing as one of the most used cryptocurrency by mainstream consumers. With a new blockchain come new opportunities. One of those opportunities is access to a new ecosystem of wallets. Moving to a new blockchain also comes with some challenges. Existing wallets and exchanges need to work on their integrations of the Solana blockchain and the SPL token standard prior to supporting Solana based Kin (SPL Kin). Today, we are pleased to announce 5 new wallets that will support Kin: Math Wallet, Coin98 Wallet, Solong Wallet, Bonfida Wallet and Torus. This confirmed support for SPL Kin demonstrates Kin’s broadening reach with an increasing variety of wallets that are popular in different parts of the world. Last week Kik published details of the Solana migration for Kin token holders. In short, if you hold your Kin in a supported wallet or exchange you don’t have to do anything. If you hold your Kin in a wallet or exchange that is not supported, you can restore your Kin in a supported wallet or you can continue to hold your Kin in that wallet until they upgrade to SPL Kin. Because all of the Kin addresses are being copied over to Solana, your Kin will not be lost if you continue to hold it in an unsupported wallet. At any time after the migration, as long as you have access to your private key you will be able to restore your Kin t...

Kin Newsletter: October 2020 Edition
October 2020. — This past month marked the three year anniversary of the Kin Ecosystem going live. On September 26, 2017, Kin was distributed to more than 10,000 people from 117 countries, which represents 60% of the geographic coverage of the world. Since then, more than 41 million people have acquired Kin in the ecosystem and almost 3 million people are spending Kin every single month. No doubt there have been challenges along the way, but the Kin Ecosystem has shown both resilience and inventiveness that have made Kin the most used cryptocurrency by mainstream consumers. Dozens of developers from all over the world are contributing to the open source project and pushing Kin forward. This past month the Kin Foundation published a three-year review to commemorate the milestone with an overview of the progress to-date and a look ahead. A summary of that post and a link to the original is embedded below. One key upcoming milestone for Kin is the migration to the Solana Blockchain. Kin is being used by millions of people every month, and while the user experience has consistently improved, it is not yet the user experience we expect to reach hundreds of millions of people. The move to Solana will bring a 10x improvement in transaction times and a 500x improvement in scale, unlocking the requisite tools to power a seamless economy of hundreds of millions of people. Last week the migration plan was published with a target...
Kin Economy Report: October 2020
Monthly Updates on Key Economic Metrics. — Net Dollars Bought (NDB) Net Dollars Bought is defined as Kin purchased (directly or indirectly via alternative methods such as ads) for goods and services by users within the ecosystem, less all Kin paid by the Kin Foundation through the KRE and Kin Grants. Below is the NDB graph as of October 9. In the September Kin Economy Report it was noted that the August to September time period was one of the flattest periods of measurement, meaning that dollars bought is getting closer to matching pace with the Kin distributed to developers. That trend has continued with the curve continuing to flatten. From August 1 to September 1 the change in NDB was -7.5% whereas September 1 to October 1 the change was -3.3%. This shows an increasing move towards sustainability of the KRE.B/I Ratio The B/I ratio describes how much Kin is bought for goods and services per Kin issued by the Kin Foundation (all time). The B/I ratio is currently sitting at 0.0126. This is a 110% increase month over month. This comes on the heels of a 508% increase the previous period. This shows that the amount of Kin being bought is moving closer sustainably supporting the KRE. The ultimate goal is to have the B/I Ratio surpass 1.0, so there is still a lot of progress needed, but so far the ecosystem is making good strides to get there. The two variables that impact this is the amount of Kin being bought and the ...

|GARI Emerges As Second-Biggest Project On The Solana Blockchain
Just six months after its launch, the GARI cryptocurrency launched by Chingari has staked its claim as the second-most popular token on the Solana blockchain with more than a quarter of a million holders.
That’s according to data from GenX Analytics, which shows there are now 238,000 individual GARI token holders, putting it behind only the KIN token - which has 2.9 million holders - in the overall Solana popularity stakes. It’s well ahead of the chasing pack too, with SOLCHICKS, the third-most widely held token on Solana, counting just 92,000 total holders.
GARI’s astonishing rise in popularity was expected. It is the native cryptocurrency of Chingari, which has grown to become one of the most popular social media apps in India. With more than 32 million daily active Chingari users, there’s obvious potential for GARI to grow far, far bigger than it is now. Chingari is a TikTok clone, a short video sharing app that allows users to add background music and filters to their content and share it to millions of other users. Since TikTok was banned in India two years ago, its user base has skyrocketed.
Chingari is the biggest social media platform in the world thus far to embrace cryptocurrency. It believes GARI will play a big role in its platform, helping to foster an ecosystem that will enable top influencers to sell physical merchandise and NFTs, while users will be rewarded with GARI tokens for posting content that’s shared widely on the app. Use...
