How Do Developer Integrate Kin Ads?

Visit the official Kin Ads website and email them to get on board !

It is an SDK that an app implements to plug into Ad networks such as Adx, MoPub, IronSource, Samato, Rubicon, list goes on. o advertisers initially don’t see anything to do with Kin and thats ok! and the reason is, because we are tapping into already well established infrastructure with a lot of money flowing through it and on day 1 we do not have to convince any advertiser to do a “Kin” campaign.

So How Does Kin Ads Drive Demand for Kin?

Our approach is to onboard existing Kin Ecosystem apps into an already setup Kin Ad Network and use the ad-revenue generated on those Kin apps, to convert that income into kin purchases on the open market and therefore causing buying pressure.

So What’s Next for Kin Ads?

Once we get really good at serving and optimizing eCPMs for the apps, who we serve we are exploring the opportunity of developing other parts of the project. This could include modules, new ad formats, creative, agency partners ect.
