Kinto’s primary focus is to facilitate the transition to on-chain finance, putting a strong emphasis on compliance and user experience. The platform offers features such as permissionless KYC/AML and native account abstraction.

Ramon Recuero, the Founder of Kinto, expressed enthusiasm about the move, stating, “Arbitrum is the indisputable leader in the rollup space regarding adoption, TVL, and technology maturity. Arbitrum is a community-driven ecosystem with thousands of projects being built by crypto-natives and we are excited to add Kinto into that discussion.”
