How to Migrate Kin Tokens to Solana Wallet

KIN Token Migration

KIN has migrated to the Solana blockchain on December 15, 2020, and has now become a SPL token. You can find more details about it here: KIN Token Migration

Important:
The migration sequence will begin with on-demand migrations which prioritizes all active accounts and any accounts with at least US$1.00 of Kin. Inactive accounts with less than US$1.00 will then follow. These low-balance inactive accounts will be migrated at a slower rate to ensure stability.

You can also check your new KIN wallet address here.

Clicking the address will redirect you to the Solana blockchain explorer and it will show here the number of tokens migrated.

If you have any concerns about the migration of your KIN to the Solana blockchain, you can reach out to their team for assistance: https://kin.org/contact-us

Get your Recovery Phrase

You need to have a copy of your Recovery Phrase which will be used in performing the migration. Follow this guide: How to Backup a Multi-Coin Wallet

Create a Kin wallet

Go to the wallet Import screen and then select Kin. Use the Recovery Phrase, to create the Kin wallet.
This procedure is similar to when you are going to restore a wallet.

Export Kin Private Key

Next, go to the list of Wallets found under the Settings tab. Tap on the ā€œiā€ symbol beside the Kin wallet and then tap on Export Private Key on the list of Backup Options.

Tap on the QR code to save the Private Key on your device memory.

Note:
You can also take a screenshot of the QR code which you can scan if you are restoring the wallet on another device.

Create a Solana Wallet

On the wallet Import screen, choose Solana. Tap on the Private Key tab and Paste it on the space provided. Put a name for the wallet and then tap on Import.

Add Kin SPL Token

Open the Solana wallet and then tap on the toggle on the upper right. Search for Kin and enable it.

Congratulations, you have successfully migrated your Kin wallet.

Note:
Sending KIN will require Solana (SOL) tokens on the same wallet in order to submit a transaction.
