    What is Kin?

    What the heck is this kin? It keeps asking me if I want to award kin.

    This is obviously something new Tapatalk is doing but I'm not sure what it is.

    Kin is an altcoin token from the Canadian developers of Kik Messenger that raised almost $100 million in its 2017 ICO (in which Canadians were ironically barred from participating). It is down 99% from its peak.

    In the context of Tapatalk (and the larger internet), it's useless.
