AppCoins is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Kyber Network, an on-chain, instant and liquid platform for exchange and payment service that allows anyone to seamlessly receive payments from any token.
Within the scope of the partnership, all KGT holders will be granted exclusive access to the pre-sale of AppCoin tokens on November 6th, 2017.

Please make sure to the use the same wallet address that contains KGT.
AppCoins and Kyber Network Integration
The integration between Kyber Network and AppCoins’ will allow app developers and users to transact AppCoins using any ERC20 tokens and ETH. In other words, a user could pay in any ERC20 cryptocurrency while the developer could receive the payment in AppCoins.
The liquidity is guaranteed by establishing reserves in the network. This reserve will be initially owned and managed by Kyber Network; later, other organizations and individuals with significant token holdings will be invited to join the network, increasing the liquidity pool.
The fungibility of ERC-20 tokens, and the ability to buy and sell any service on the Ethereum protocol, stabilizes the volatility by means of liquidity. This means that more focus can be directed to the provision of services which is currently obfuscated by blind speculation.
A Winning Model
Through this partnership, Kyber Network members who do not own Appcoins will have the possibility to instantly and seamlessly execute in-app purchases as if they were holding the coin. This in turn significantly reduces marketing costs to increase the token usage and liquidity.
During the first phase of the partnership, both parties will focus on the integration of services. Kyber Network will undoubtedly benefit from the vast network which Aptoide — the backbone of AppCoins — has established.
In the longer term, Kyber and AppCoins will work towards attracting more decentralized mobile application stores, providing the opportunity for both to scale.
AppCoins — the new currency of the app economy
With AppCoins, users can earn tokens through engaging with app advertising and then spend this currency on in-app purchases (such as game items).
Customers who lack access to traditional payment methods today, will gain a chance to buy items that were previously inaccessible. In addition, a blockchain ledger will record all developers’ reputation, increasing the reliability of apps in the marketplace.
AppCoins’ potential extends beyond the Aptoide platform, as the tokens will be made compatible for all app stores.
With that in mind, an App Store Foundation will be created to coordinate the development of the protocol and reference implementation under an open governance model.
