Kin’s Developer Program Is Supporting 8 Crypto Gaming Projects
Given that sentiment, it comes as no surprise that 8 out of the 40 projects participating in the Kin Developer Program, the $5 million incubator program led by the Kin Foundation, are currently working on blockchain-driven games.

In a recent announcement, Kin noted that gaming has been an extremely active category for developers within their ecosystem. The project event notes that “gaming use cases were the second highest category of submissions accepted into the program.”
Cryptocurrencies, specifically Kin, can enable easy peer-to-peer transactions among gamers who often play opponents in other countries, and use different currencies than the person they’re playing. Developers can also use it to spark interest and incentivize new people to play their games.
The gaming project being integrated with Kin range from fantasy football (soccer) platforms to an augmented reality collectible card game that lets players search for collectible cards.
The program supports projects with up to $60,000 USD and 400 million Kin over a 6-month period and was expanded from the original 25 projects to include 40 overall.
