We’re happy to announce new partnership with RAMP DEFIπŸš€

Together we will roll out a Proof of Concept for Leveraged Staking. This is the process by which DeFi users can simultaneously stake assets across multiple chains at the same time, which enables them to juice obtainable yields without exposure to market volatility or otherwise increasing their risk profile.

KIRA will also support the staking of stablecoins issued by RAMPπŸ”₯ This will benefit KIRA delegators, who will have ability to switch from staking cryptocurrencies to staking stablecoins during periods of high market volatility, all without loosing out on block and fee rewards.

We look forward to working with RAMP DEFI and rolling out Leveraged Staking as we pursue new ways of optimizing yield without need for assets custody and without any risks related to performance of the marketπŸš€

We are happy that announce that KIRA and Clover Finance enter a strategic partnership to enable liquid, non-custodial staking of digital assets issued and available via Clover Finance apps and extensions to be staked on KIRA.

πŸ€Clover enables users to easily navigate and transact assets between foreign decentralized networks.

πŸ€By creating a cross-chain asset bridge between KIRA and Clover any digital asset issued on and accessible via the Colover platform will gain the ability to generate yield from staking on KIRA.

πŸ€Since all assets staked on KIRA remain liquid they can be further utilized on many different chains for the purpose of leverage staking and leveraged yield farming.

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.

➑️KIRA’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.


➑️During 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.

➑️Native $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.


➑️Post 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:

πŸ”Ή 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.

πŸ”Ή 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 β€œclaim-validator-seat” transaction.

πŸ”Ή 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).

πŸ”ΉDeployment 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.

πŸ”Ή 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.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» 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.

πŸ’» 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.

πŸ•Ή 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 testers.kira.network channel and check the pinned post containing detailed instructions. You can also contact support.kira.network in case of any questions and inquiries.
