On January 1, 2023, the Agora service will be sunset. Many Kin Developers are in the process of migrating to Kinetic - the next generation of API and SDK solutions for the Kin Ecosystem. If you are a Kin Developer and have not yet migrated, here is an overview of the steps to complete in advance of the deadline.
What is Kinetic:
Kinetic is a suite of open-source tools that makes it easy, quick and intuitive to build apps on the Solana Blockchain, allowing a much more seamless and powerful Web3 developing experience. Kinetic will replace “Agora” and its related SDKs, which are currently in use by many Kin apps today. More information about Kinetic can be found here.
There are two stages to the Kinetic migration:
1. Transacting on Devnet
This will entail implementing code changes and using the new Kinetic SDKs in your app. The required code changes are minimal and there are migration guides available for each SDK.
2. Transacting on Mainnet
Once your code has been updated, you will be able to start transacting on Mainnet and continue to earn Kin via the KRE.
All Kin Developers should have migrated their apps to Devnet by the end of November. This will leave ample time to begin transacting on Mainnet by the end of the year. Should you have any additional questions or need technical support please visit the Kin Developer Discord.
Kin gives everyone skin in the game – making it easy for apps and brands to reward users and create exciting experiences with cryptocurrency, all while generating new streams of revenue for themselves. Tearing down barriers to crypto development, Kin is leading the Web3 revolution by empowering platforms and their users to forge mutually beneficial relationships. Win-win is a cliché – Kin is the reality. Visit kin.org to learn more.
