Waking up to find 888,888 KickToken (KICK) airdropped to my wallet was a bit of a surprise, to say the least. I had honestly never heard of the coin and I certainly hadn’t subscribed to any social media or blog posts concerning the token. But there it was, clear as day, mingling with the Ether (ETH) on my mobile wallet.
“Maybe it’s some kind of April Fool’s joke,” I muttered to myself while splashing cold water on my face that fateful morn.
Apparently, KickToken (KICK) was airdropped to over a million users that day. Deployed as a gimmick of sorts, to raise awareness for the team’s fledgling exchange, Kickex, the company created a proprietary algorithm to choose active users in the crypto-community who would receive the drop.
Flattered? You betcha! Intrigued? Sure! Sold? Well, not so fast.
Kick Ecosystem (KICK) Operates Like a…
First and foremost, I feel the need to express a fundamental truth to my loyal readers; KICK is a shit-coin. Since KICK’s arrival on the crypto-scene, investors have aired their grievances about the company, making public the total mess that the KICK team has created in crypto-space.
But now, with their most recent reference program, ‘KickRef’, the ponzi making up the Kick Token (KICK) brand seems be to revealing itself in real-time.
⚡️KickRef hits 800,000 registered users!
We are just a few steps away from our ambitious goal to gather 1 MLN users in KickRef from all over the globe

So go ahead, sign up and check out their exchange. It’s spoofy, and slow. Nothing is really tradable. And you will probably forever be spammed by the relentless selling of any personal info you divulge to these dark web data scavengers…
It is hard to find a company more annoying than @KickEcosystem .
These fools airdropped a frozen $KICK token into your wallet and want you to KYC on their shitty exchange to be able to move it.

Still, the company seems to be making some headway into their development recently, so feel free to keep reading if you’re excited by the Kick Ecosystem!

Down more than I care to calculate since the airdrop, KickToken (KICK) has proven to be nothing but a headache for the company’s rightly irritated investor’s. Currently trading at US $.0.000012, KickToken (KICK) is now dropping faster than an Acme anvil on the Looney Toon’s Road Runner show. My advice? Simple. Try not to be like Wile-E-Coyote in this out-of-place analogy.
While receiving a shit-load of KICK definitely worked to peak my interest in this little known crypto-company and their public (beta) exchange, the product is as-of-yet unusable. And while the interesting advertisement in the form of an airdrop sent many investor’s into a short-lived frenzy, the spammy nature of the frozen drop left an indelible impression on a number of irritated hodlers.
Still, until the coins falls to zeron, I’m happy to hodl them in my wallet. Who knows, if KICK gets a boost in the future, maybe this will be how Micah C. Miracle finally breaks the bank! Perhaps more likely, my ride into the sunset will be marked with a KICK me sign taped to the ass of my horse.
