Verify that the app you use will support the Solana migration. Migration to the Solana Blockchain will happen automatically. If your Kin app or wallet app is supporting the swap, you do not have to take any action. After migration, your Kin balance will be available for use on the new blockchain.
Yes. Since Solana uses the same elliptic curve as the Kin blockchain, your public wallet address and private keys will remain the same, and therefore your ability to access your funds will remain unaffected. To ensure that your access to Kin after migration is successful, the Kin Foundation recommends utilizing the supported exchanges and wallets. Note that your Kin may be inaccessible if left on non-supported exchanges or wallets until that particular exchange or wallet decides to continue supporting Kin at a future date.
Bithumb Global, Gate.io, Cointiger, Mercatox, HitBTC. New exchange listing to be announced at a later date post the Dec 8th migration event.
Details on swap via Ethereum-Solana Wormhole to be announced.
