ICO performed by the KIK social media app. Their KIN token is supposed to be integrated in the KIK eco system to spark more crypto adoption by leveraging the millions of KIK users. The ICO raised close to $100 million which is a substantial war chest, but they failed to reach their $125 million target. A large part of the fundraise was contributed by large investors in a pre-sale. Token has been underperforming ever since, except from the late 2017 altcoin rally. Currently it is still an ERC20 token, but they are scheduled to migrate to their native blockchain, for which ERC20 token holders will need to do a swap, preferably before end of May 2019 from what I read.
Github shows decent activity (in terms of quantity, did not look at quality). Team is public and and legit. Without going into details on the merits of the KIN project, I have little reason to suspect this project to be a blatant scam, sure I could find points of criticism, but overall this project seems to lean to not shady at all (at least not by average crypto standards).
