Until now, Kin's offices were located nearby, in the Sarona complex. The company stated the relocation is a result of its plan to recruit 30 additional employees for its Tel Aviv research and development center. The company also has 25 employees in New York and San Francisco.

Kin is based on Tel Aviv-based communications company Rounds Entertainment Ltd., which Kik acquired in January 2017 and turned into its digital currency operations. In September 2017, Kik raised $98 million in an initial coin offering of a token called Kin, with the aim of creating a decentralized digital services ecosystem based on the coin. The coin has since lost the majority of its value.
