‘Send-to-email’ - Everything you need to know

  • Updated

What is ‘send-to-email’?

The ‘send-to-email’ feature enables Kinesis users to send digital assets to other account holders, as well as outside of the Kinesis Monetary System, simply by using a recipient’s email address. This means that payments can be made to current users and those that are not yet registered on the Kinesis platform.


Do I need to be a Kinesis account holder to receive funds using the send-to-email feature?

Send-to-email funds transfers can be sent to everyone within the Kinesis Monetary System, as well as outside of the system (e.g. to potential new users), as long as the sender knows the recipient's email address.

However, to accept transfers and receive sent funds, the recipient is required to create an account within the Kinesis Monetary System. The recipient is forwarded to the sign-up page, at the moment of accepting the transfer, by clicking the link in the email. 

Upon signing up to the Kinesis platform, the receiver is deemed as referred by the sender.


What cryptocurrencies can I transfer with ‘send-to-email’?

With ‘send-to-email’, users can transfer Kinesis' native gold (KAU) and silver (KAG), Kinesis Velocity Token (KVT) and all cryptocurrencies available on the Kinesis Exchange:

Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Tether (USDT), USD Coin (USDC), Dash (DASH), XinFin (XDC), Stellar (XLM) & Ripple (XRP).

In the future, additional cryptocurrencies will be added.

Please note that the withdrawal fee for the Kinesis Velocity Token (KVT) is charged in Ethereum (ETH).


Can I send fiat currencies via email?

No, the ‘send-to-email’ function is built specifically for the transfer of cryptocurrencies. This means that transferring fiat is not possible using the ‘send-to-email’ function. 


Can I still send to ‘Contact’, ‘Wallet’, and ‘Address’?

Yes, you can still send crypto via other sending options available on the Kinesis platform. However, ‘send-to-email’ is a faster alternative for users, since it requires minimal information about the recipient. 


Can I receive Referral Rewards for inviting new users to Kinesis?

Through the ‘send-to-email’ feature, the existing account holders will be able to invite new users onto the Kinesis platform, making both the sender and their newly onboarded referee eligible for the Referrer’s Silver Rewards, if all program conditions are met. 

If a recipient who did not previously hold a Kinesis account, accepts the funds, creates an account and then both the referrer and referee meet the criteria outlined in this article, they can be rewarded with half an ounce of silver each.

Please keep in mind that sending KAU, KAG and crypto funds to recipients outside of the Kinesis system through the ‘send-to-email’ feature does not count towards the Referrer’s Yield.
