Los Angeles, Calif. March 27, 2019 – Kin token is rolling out across Tapatalk, the leading mobile forum app, with an ecosystem of over 200,000 forums and aggregate user base the size of Reddit or Twitter.

As the leader in forum management software, Tapatalk is at the forefront of exploring and adopting the latest cutting-edge technologies to improve the forum experience and bolster online communities. Tapatalk sees many powerful use cases for blockchain implementation in terms of incentivization, monetization and securitization.
Tapatalk announced its partnership with Kin in November 2018, and with the latest update to Tapatalk’s iOS and Android app, Tapatalk users can now earn and spend Kin. This marks another significant step in the company’s mission to advance online forum communities using blockchain technology. Tapatalk’s Kin token integration will support greater engagement and richer contributions throughout the forum ecosystem.
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.”
“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.”
Along with the Kin integration, Tapatalk is also using an EOS-based blockchain solution to account for earning and purchasing Tapatalk Gold Points. Gold points enable forum administrators to gain revenue through page views, ad impressions and member donations, and members can use them for ad removal as well.
