November 30, 2018 12:34 pm
Tapatalk is one of the most well-known mobile forum application in the world. The company recently sealed a deal with the Kin Foundation to reward its 300 million plus user base for posting quality content on its platform.
The platform hosts more than 200,000 forums spread across 186 countries. The company plans to reward users in Kin tokens through this new partnership as a means to build user-engagement.
“Tapatalk’s integration of Kin marks a noteworthy development in our expansion to reach new users and cultivate further engagement within the broader forum community. The mechanics of Kin will surely benefit existing forum users while bringing new users into the fold of vibrant, active online discussion communities.”
The platform will also enable users to tip each other using their Kin balance, similar to how Twitter and Reddit use tipping apps.
“People contribute to online communities on a daily basis, but there isn’t an easy way for them to rewards other users for their contribution to the discussion. We believe that Tapatalk will be a strong example of how Kin easily facilitates peer-to-peer transactions in apps once users being rewarding each other for the creation of meaningful, engaging content.”
Kin announced back in June that an avatar-based social network IMVU will enable users to earn Kin, this platform is yet to reach its deployment stages.
Kin was created by Kik, the social messaging platform which was able to raise $97 million during its Initial Coin Offering (ICO). Currently, Kin runs on an ERC-20 token standard based on the Ethereum platform.
