LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tapatalk, the leading mobile forum app, has announced its commitment to integrate Kin, the cryptocurrency for consumer apps. Through the partnership, Tapatalk will harness the power of crypto-enabled, peer-to-peer experiences to increase engagement in online communities. Soon, Tapatalk users will receive Kin for posting quality content in the app, and in turn, they can send Kin to other creators on the platform.
"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," said Winter Wong, CEO of Tapatalk. "The mechanics of Kin will surely benefit existing forum users, while bringing new users into the fold of vibrant, active online discussion communities."
"People contribute to online communities on a daily basis, but there isn't an easy way for them to reward other users for their contribution to the discussion," said Dany Fishel, President of Kin. "We believe that Tapatalk will be a strong example of how Kin easily facilitates peer-to-peer transactions in apps once users begin rewarding each other for the creation of meaningful, engaging content."
Tapatalk's mobile-first app for forum owners and their members is currently used by over 200,000 forums in 186 countries. By partnering with Kin, Tapatalk will enable its users to use cryptocurrency in forums supported by Tapatalk. The company was drawn to the Kin Ecosystem, as the partnership will allow its large user base to discover even more forums via the Tapatalk mobile platform.
