Video Playlist[edit]


00:00 So I'm Ted Livingston, I'm the founder and CEO of kik.
00:04 I started kik eight and a half years ago now, which is pretty amazing and been building it ever since.
00:11 So we're here today to introduce a new project we've been working on called Kin.
00:14 Kik is entering the blockchain space and basically it's going to bring keep the currency to the muscles.
00:19 And what kin is? Kin is a decentralized ecosystem of digital services to power the daily lives of consumers.
00:26 The thing that's so exciting about kik introducing kin is that here's a mainstream product that hundreds of millions of people have used, that many many people have on their phones, that it's a brand that's understood, you know people know what it is, introducing a cryptocurrency versus something that nobody's ever used and ever heard of before which is really what the the past history of crypto has been.
00:50 Now, Kik bringing it to the mainstream.
00:53 I think right now we are on a path to where digital services power everything we do in our daily lives but they're all controlled and owned by a very few number of companies.
01:02 Like to me honestly, I think that's a bit of a scary future.
01:06 So blockchain technologies and decentralized systems are like a really effective way of breaking down that that silo because it basically says you know, the users and the data and these proprietary resources live in an open transparent and community owned database.
01:23 So there's four steps to making this happen.
01:25 The first step is creating a new cryptocurrency which were calling the Kin.
01:29 The word kin means family and in kinship and the connectedness between all of us, and so that's really what we're trying to do, we're trying to create this new family of apps, this new ecosystem that all works together and it's all connected together.
01:40 It'd be an ERC 20 token on the Ethereum blockchain.
01:44 The second step is to give that cryptocurrency value and the way we're going to do that is by integrating it into kik.
01:52 This is something we've been experimenting with since 2014 with kik coins, where through just a couple ways to earn and a couple ways to spend, we are able to create four times the transaction volume of Bitcoin globally, that then lets us do number three which is creating the kin reward engine.
02:08 We're gonna take a big portion of kin and we're gonna give away a bunch of it every day.
02:15 So that if you're a developer and you have a great digital service and you bring it into the kin ecosystem and you integrate kin and you get people transacting in it, you will get a proportional amount of this daily reward every day.
02:28 So you get all these developers coming in and that creates more transactions.
02:32 But the more transactions you get, the more demand for the currency, the more demand for the currency, the more valuable the currency is, the more valuable the daily reward.
02:40 So the fourth and final step is to create the Kin foundation to oversee all this.
02:45 Many of these projects form nonprofit organizations that protect the interest of the community as a whole.
02:53 On one side yes, they'll administer the Kin reward engine but they will also make sure that key pieces of the infrastructure like the identity system in the transaction system are open and decentralized as well.
03:08 I think kin is good for the industry because it's a monetization model, a business model for social platforms, communities, messengers that really don't want to run advertising in them.
03:22 Any one app that's trying to take on these behemoths is gonna lose.
03:27 But by banding together and using this cryptocurrency kin as a way to align us all together, to work together, I think we can make a better experience for consumers, but also a better future for society in general.
03:42 Kik has both the experience and the resources and the user base to really make this happen.
03:50 The success of this project really comes down to how many other people can we get excited to compete with us, to join us, to work with us and to build this together.
