The Kik is making its headway in the crypto currency industry, by acquiring the way to increase funding through ICO; which is proving to be an ideal decision for the company.
A messenger app Kik seems to elevate $125, after an extreme capital raise to $50 M, from its pre-sale of ethereum token to institutional investors, including Pantera Capital, Polychain Capital, and Block chain Capital.
Kik CEO Ted Livingston stated “Developers would take a percentage of the daily reward in proportion to the number of transactions their service was responsible for,”
“This creates a reward engine, a beautiful network effect, where the bigger the daily reward, the more services come into the ecosystem, which drives up the daily reward and more digital services. Very quickly this could become a very powerful economic force to bring developers to,” Livingston added.
