Today Kik’s CEO Ted Livingston announced that,

the company is going to shut down its messaging app Kik.

And they’re going to focus completely on their cryptocurrency Kin.

So that they can convert more Kin users to buyers.

Also their whole team will be reduced to 19.

Which is gonna affect over 100 employees.

Kin may be is bringing more money to the company

But their messaging app was bringing more love to it.

As a result users aren’t happy about the decision.

But there’s still no official announcement from Kik social media yet.

So there’s a good chance things can change before the disaster.

I really really hope this is a hoax it's not fair kik is a big part of my life it helps me with medical issues and mental health problems because we are all like a community there and it's not fair ffs this Is soo depressing

Also when they say kids get abused on the app why the fuck do kids have phones in the first place and parents should be watching what the kids are doing on the phones I know it shouldn't have been happening n all that but a wide amount of people use it to make friends and use it because they have much anxiety and hate going outside so kik is the only thing that helps people keep in touch with humans I think this is gonna be a real tragedy

Honestly, Kik is one of the places my friends dont want to give up. So it's the only place I can talk with old friends on. But that won't change the Kik dev's from shutting it down. The only thing most of anyone sees in today's world, is money. And that's shameful of them. Kik was special to most people. And then here the owners are, shutting it down, over a symbol of money. That's one way to lose respect if you ask me.

Hopefully a Pro Kik Modder can Reverse engineer Kik's Coding/Plateform and make a Perfect copy of it, with some popular modd features made into it. Then upload it on the app store.

I’ve spent over 6 years on this app... there just aren’t any other apps with the same format and system, I mean really! Open group chats that you can search easily? Amino is the closest and it’s communities try to control the individual group chats so much.

They are spending all their money defending themselves against the predations of government! The company has to shut down kik because the SEC has a lawsuit against them for their KIN crypto token ICO!!
