Dear KIRA community, as we approach the completion of the public Testnet, which will be followed by incentivized games, we wanted to recap a few details about the upcoming Mainnet.

➡️KIRA’s Mainnet will launch in the Proof of Authority mode, and include a Governance module that will establish new rules for on-boarding new validators, new governance members and further execute on-chain upgrades.

➡️During this phase we will continue to support legacy KEX staking as an ERC-20 and will introduce a new NFT staking mechanism on Ethereum. This will also be the time when Seed and Private tokens will begin to unlock, and our early backers will receive their first Native $KEX tokens.

➡️Native $KEX token will not be exchangeable for the legacy ERC-20 and existing holders of ERC-20 KEX will be able to swap to native $KEX after the KIRA cross-chain Ethereum bridge module is released.

➡️Post Mainnet launch the next two modules to be released will include MBPoS consensus and Ethereum bridge that will enable us to fully transition NFT and KEX staking from Ethereum to KIRA’s Native Chain.

Dear #KIRA Community, our team has prepared the most recent infrastructure overview for you. We are now planning an upcoming release of the KIRA Manager, the new Upgrade Module, and deployment modes.

Here is the shortlist of top5 new features and updates:

🔹 KIRA Manager (KM) is an infrastructure management tool allowing for the deployment of validators, sentries, and seed nodes with just a single line of code.

🔹 One of the new features of the KM is the possibility of joining the validator set without the need for command line use and manually submitting the “claim-validator-seat” transaction.

🔹 Privacy P2P Mode - it allows for easy deployment of your KIRA nodes within the private networks. If the privacy mode is enabled then nodes deployed outside of the private network will not be able to communicate with your node via P2P (propagate blocks).

🔹Deployment modes of the KIRA manager have been simplified and optimized in order to decrease disk space requirements and support a wider variety of VPS providers.

🔹 Upgrade Module - the main highlight of the testnet-5 and the upcoming KM release is the support of the automated on-chain upgrades. Upgrade module is a blockchain application that allows validators to coordinate soft & hard forks as well as agree on the integrity and content of each new KIRA release.

We are excited to share this update with you, bringing more clarity on what to expect and how to prepare your infrastructure for the upcoming incentivized games. We will also publish a detailed mainnet launch roadmap in the upcoming weeks.

Dear KIRA community, we are happy to announce the final pre-Mainnet release of #KIRA Network! 🌟

Here is the latest news from our team:

5️⃣ Testnet-5 is the final blockchain application release that includes the automated upgrades feature and Identity Registrar module. We will use this release with the same set of features for the upcoming games and challenges if no critical issues are identified and all public tests of the new modules are successful.

👨‍💻 KIRA Identity Registrar is the new module that enables every KIRA account holder to prove any arbitrary statements on-chain without the need for any single, centralized authority to hold control over verifying that data and without need for the user to expose their private information to third parties they might not trust.

💻 KIRA Automated Upgrade is the new module that enables network operators to fully automate soft and hard forks, making coordination process of upgrading and launching new releases of the software simple and transparent.

🕹 In preparation for the upcoming Mainnet launch, KIRA Team will be holding at least two incentivized games with the goal of stress testing the network and selecting trusted (non-sybil), identifiable, and most skilled network operators to join the initial validator set.

In order to join testnet while registration form is still open visit channel and check the pinned post containing detailed instructions. You can also contact in case of any questions and inquiries.

Testnet Updates

We are happy to announce that with over 200 participants successfully performed the largest known network hard fork with non sybil validator set and equal voting power among all participants.
Dear Community, AscendEx hot wallet was compromised including ~816k KEX tokens. The wallet of the attacker was immediately frozen by the KIRA team thus there is no risk to any KEX token holders as the attacker can NOT sell and can NOT transfer KEX from his wallet. State of the user account balances on the CEX will not be affected as per information's from the AscendEx team. KIRA team will assist AscendEx with recovery of KEX on the native KIRA chain, after the mainnet launch.

We are happy to announce that KIRA upgrade proposal 668 passed successfully! As the result testnet-8 will be hard-forked into testnet-9 at 16:30:00 UTC on Fri Jan 07 2022.

All validators who voted YES should be fully synced and online at that time!

All #KIRA testnet validators MUST manually reinitialize their nodes using testnet-9 branch

🔹List of peers to connect with can be found here:

🔹Starting block of the testnet-9 chain is 920527

🔹After re-init nodes will be syncing until 2/3 of validators come online

Currently 167/263 of all validators who voted YES on the update proposal are live, only 10 more needed to reach > 2/3 and launch the network!
