The Next Chapter
Two years ago we started working on Kippt, a tool to store and share knowledge, ideas and inspiration from around the web. What began as side project for us eventually grew into a Y Combinator backed company. One year into our journey, we launched Inc, an organization version of Kippt aimed at giving companies an elegant communication tool. Inc ended up being used at companies we admire, including Teehan+Lax, Betaworks, Sqwiggle and many others.
It's been fantastic and humbling to see such a diverse and vibrant community of talented people grow around Kippt and all the apps that have been built on the API. All the emails and tweets that we have received from our users over the years about the excitement and use of our products, have made this an unforgettable journey.
This marks the end of the journey for us at Kippt. Although our service has been loved by many, we never achieved the growth and the scale that would allow a sustainable future for Kippt. Building personal knowledge online continues to be a unsolved problem. While we are switching directions, we hope that Kippt and Inc have contributed to the future of online collaboration and knowledge sharing.
We are excited to share with you that we’re joining the team at Coinbase. Our relationship with them goes back to summer 2012 when we were part of the same Y Combinator class.
Like information management, exchanging value is an old and challenging problem. We believe that Bitcoin is one of the most important inventions of the past decade and it’s driving a major shift in the payments and financial industry. For the first time, designers and developers like us can now re-imagine the way financial transactions and products are designed and built. Coinbase is at the heart of this revolution and shares our passion to build beautiful and easy to use products. We could not be more excited about joining Coinbase's product team and look forward to an epic adventure!
We'll continue to keep both Kippt and Inc running however the paid Kippt Pro plans will be discontinued. Inc will keep seeing small improvements, as a side project for us. We're committed to providing guidance and support to our user community during these transitions, so please feel free to contact us anytime.
We would like to send a big thank you to all our users, investors, friends and families – we could not have come this far without you.
