Kik has been treading water over the last couple of weeks since its developer announced that it would close the messaging app and focus on its cryptocurrency Kin. Understandably, there's been an uproar among Kik's loyal users, and as it turns out, their cries have been heard. Holding company MediaLab has purchased the app and published a note to its users, saying "Kik is here to stay!
The original development team has already disbanded, so MediaLab is bringing in its own people to continue working on the app. It wants to focus on the basics over the next couple of months by making it faster, more reliable, and less buggy, while increasing group sizes and introducing the ability to remove inactive group administrators. It's also open for further ideas and feedback from the community.

Just like any company, MediaLab also needs to pay its bills and doesn't have a cryptocurrency to fuel its expenses, so it wants to introduce to the service "over the coming weeks. While there are plenty of examples of badly executed app takeoversMediaLab is reputable enough. It also owns anonymous social network Whisper and hip hop distribution platform DatPiff, both of which seem to be successful products.
