It's a popup that asks if I want to give "Kin" to another member. I won't mention the name, but it's a well-known member.
I don't give a cr*p much about how others make their money, I just hate popups.
Maybe it's got nothing to do with income at all.

I just Googled it. Seems Tapatalk integrated it recently.
The description I found was
"a cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystem from Ted Livingston who created Kik messenger"
Looks like another way to get more "feel good" from likes. Got to be an underlying money-maker somehow or they wouldn't do it.
If you haven't seen it yet, most likely you will eventually if you "like" posts.

Run an adblocker and it will go away. Tapatalk is notorious for running ads like that.

Also, posting in the correct section of the forum and not subverting the censor filters is a good idea as well.

Moved to the appropriate forum
