Yesterday at least 20 or 30 validators who have been using #googlecloud Provider have been banned and their virtual machines where their #KIRA nodes have been running got shutdown by #Google support. Reasoning was Cryptocurrency mining...

Some of them reached out to support and got their issue resolved but some of them were not that lucky. This however was not the issue for stopping testnet-1 and the consensus managed to gracefully offload affected validators without halting. Testnet repository was updated with relevant post mortem updates.

testnet-1 received stability and performance upgrade and is now resumed as testnet-2 all details are already available within dedicated testnet github repository.

Validators who already submitted their candidacy and passed KYC will be accepted to the set in the coming hours. Meanwhile connecting to the public testnet using sentry nodes should be possible.

Before connecting you should ensure that your instance is clean and that during setup using initialization script you selected testnet-2 branch. Do not forget to recover your /home/<username>/.secrets folder before proceeding with the setup!

All tech-relevant discussions should be taking place on the dedicated @kiratesters channel, any validator whitelist related questions should be directed towards support.kira.network

We’re happy to announce new partnership with RAMP DEFI🚀

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 RAMP🔥 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 market🚀

Learn how digital fiat can be used to onboard users of legacy economies into the crypto space, incentivize them and secure decentralized networks with the value of real-world assets!

Key points to highlight:

📚Within the KIRA network ‘trust’ is measured with the ‘value’ vouching for the honest network operator

📚There are no limitations in terms of how much value there can be at stake then there is no restriction on how much trust the network can achieve

📚KIRA becomes more secure, thus more trustworthy with the growing value staked, making it unique in the world of Web3

📚KIRA processes transactions and execute financial logic at unprecedented scales, all of which can be simply and quantitatively measured.

📚KIRA provides an attractive bridge where traditional investors and the non-crypto savvy users can easily extract value from their real-world assets

📚KIRA ensures trust between all actors in the global economy

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.

🍀Clover enables users to easily navigate and transact assets between foreign decentralized networks.

🍀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.

🍀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.
