About product manager’s remarks
Kik’s product manager Laura Newton commented on the kin coin as follows.
” Currently the technology of the cryptographic currency is not adapted to our daily lives and there is no consumer in the true sense.If Kin is already used Kik to make people like to use it for their usual life, Kin will continue to be the strategic core of Kik, we will continue to increase the functions available in kin’s Kik, and further partners will use the specific use of kin coins in their own applications It will be an example.
As a point to note in this remark, “It is possible to show concrete examples in partner ‘s own application “ .
In other words, it is speculated that kik is trying to spread Kin token as a settlement method of applications and so on. In order to be used in applications, EC sites, etc., kin needs to specialize in small payment .
Actually, kin originally planned to use Stellar ‘s block chain for internal transactions, but since the change on May 9, it is currently working on its own Blockchain network hard forked from Stellar main net.
From this, kin announces that trading with zero commission can be realized by using its own network for internal transactions .
In other words, it may have been a change to deal with a transaction with a smaller amount .
There are currently a number of cryptographic currency projects, but it may be the first example of the use of encryption currency with a message application of 300 million users.
