Kick Ecosystem Recap — Issue 14

A much anticipated Dev Diary #14 is out! KickEX beta-testing reviews, bug fixes, KickRef tops over 360k registrations and more!

ello everyone!

The first Thursday after the holidays is a perfect mid-week opportunity for releasing our very own Dev Diaries #14!

First things first. KickEX cryptocurrency exchange beta-testing is in full progress! The already reviews have been rather positive and we want to thank the testers for being such a dedicated community and helping us by providing feedback and reporting issues within the exchange. Kick Team appreciates this to no end and encourage you to continue voicing your thoughts to us.

If you didn’t yet know — you can also take part in KickEX beta-testing right now! Sign up HERE to receive your personal invitation!

  • Sign up on
  • Confirm your email address
  • Complete the KYC verification
  • Receive the test funds for trading and start exploring!

Note: since KickEX is still in its beta-testing, not all features of the exchange might work. We suggest that you test the trading terminal (the “Trade” section), place orders, learn how to set up trailing orders with the help of an assistant. You can also see open orders, the history of all orders and transactions in the “Orders” section and your balance in the “Funds” section;

In addition, KickRef has achieved over 360,000 registrations and seems more like a rocket. An active member of KickRef will have all the benefits KickEX has to offer! Do not wait until the last minute!


KickEX is a robust, centralized exchange, encompassing all the expertise that we’ve gained over the years from preparing and running KickICO as well as a range of innovations in Kick Ecosystem to create a next-generation exchange.
