KIRA has a unique and innovative Governance Model that aims to continuously improve its efficiency and decentralisation, independent of wealth and stake distribution.

In order for an individual to become a validator, they must first be accepted by the current network validators in order to prevent fraudulent activities and bad actors.

On top of this, by allowing the network to be governed by a syndicate of validators the scalability of the network itself is guaranteed, while eliminating the need to worry about what occurs on-chain.

Learn more about our Governance Model below: https://blog.kira.network/kira-governance-model-4ef09e067386
Our CEO @milanavalmont discusses the differences between PoW and PoS systems in the context of the Ethereum Merge.

Crucially, she highlights the weaknesses that remain in a PoS system, namely that the system favors early adopters who may have gotten a big bag of native tokens for cheap, and being dependent on a โ€œstake-as-trustโ€ system could have protocol-breaking implications in a cross-chain ecosystem. She then explains how KIRA's innovative Multi-Bonded-Proof-of-Stake solves such issues.

MULTI BONDED PROOF OF STAKE EXPLAINED

KIRAโ€™s revolutionary Multi-Bonded-Proof-of-Stake consensus model enables liquid staking through 1:1 staking derivatives, ensuring the security of the network whilst maintaining full ownership of your assets.

This means you can stake any digital/virtual asset to secure the network rather than the native network token that is the case with traditional PoS consensus, and receive staking derivatives of the asset you staked.

MBPoS bears some similarities to Cosmos ICS, but there are very important differences in the way in which MBPoS removes a single point of failure and how the KIRA governance system removes bad actors securing the network further.

Learn more about how KIRA's MBPoS consensus mechanism works, how it improves upon current systems and what the future might hold in the NFT/gaming space, in the easily digestible article below:

KIRA Quiz

Welcome everyone to the first KIRA quiz in our telegram. The quiz will start at exactly 1500 UTC on 19/11/2022 in this Telegram channel, and the winner will receive $50 so stay tuned!

The questions will be based on the MBPoS article below, and are in a timed short answer format: https://blog.kira.network/mbpos-consensus-and-asset-liquidity-through-staking-derivatives-8e729ea6663f

There will be 5 questions, with a 1-minute time frame to answer each question after itโ€™s been posted. Answers must be sent into chat within the 1-minute timeframe in order to be eligible, and each person can only answer a question once.

Furthermore, to avoid spam, for the duration of the quiz anyone posting anything other than their answer will be disqualified.
If there are multiple people tied after the five questions we will run a further three more difficult questions, and if there is still a tie, the winner will be randomly selected from the remaining candidates.

If you have any further questions feel free to drop them in here,, we are looking forward to seeing you there. ๐Ÿ˜Š
