Kin React Native Starter


This will get your React Native app Kin enabled in a few minutes. All you need to do is add a simple class file to your app, and you should be able to make calls to Kin’s blockchain immediately.


Make sure you have read Getting Started and have the required environment variables


  1. Install the Kin SDK for React Native to your project:

    yarn add @kin-sdk/react-native
    # Or if you are using npm
    npm install @kin-sdk/react-native
  2. Add the KinService.ts class to your app

  3. Import and instantiate a new KinService.

    • Instantiation requires several variables from the getting started section:

       const kinService = new KinService(KinEnvironment.Test);
  4. See App.tsx for instantiation and sample calls

Note on Webhooks

Any transactions made by the device will alert your server with a webhook. (see server tutorials). Your server will receive a notification of the transaction, including MyUser and MyPass credentials above. The credentials help your server track transactions from specific users.

However, you can safely test your device code without turning on your webhooks.

Demo App

A demo App is included that you can run and test. To use the app:

  1. Pull https://github.com/kintegrate/kin-starter-react-native into a local folder

  2. Access the /kin-starter-react-native folder on your local.

  3. Install the dependencies

    yarn install


    cd ios && pod install
  4. Start Android app

    yarn android
  5. Start iOS app

    yarn ios

Kin Drops

To fund the demo app or any address in Kin’s TEST blockchain, simply copy its address and paste it to Kin drops:


The service will send it 10 Kin in the test network. You can refresh this as often as you like to add more Kin to your app.
