What is "kin" in Tapatalk, and how do I turn it off?

Tapatalk is now officially super annoying to use, with the constant notifications and popups asking me to give "kin", whatever that is. Since I pay for the ad free version of the app, I should be able to disable this annoyance, but so far it looks like there's no way to do it. Ugh.

Ok, a little more digging and I found you CAN disable it in Tapatalk settings. Thank goodness. Super annoying and unneeded.

Thanks for that. I didn’t realize there was a way to turn that new “feature” off, but thanks to you it’s now Gone.

In case someone wants more details with the Tapatalk app:

Home ->Me ->Settings ->Kin Rewards: Toggle to off

As to what it is.. https://medium.com/kinblog/introduci...e-fa18067ac6db has an explanation, but as far as I can tell it's basically a pile of unadulterated BS and the actual answer is "Everyone else seems to be making money with these cryptocurrency things; we should shoehorn it into our product now"
