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. …


Building a truly inclusive, capable DeFi ecosystem is at the heart of what KIRA stands for. With this view in mind, we built the world’s first cross-chain staking system and designed a solution to unlock the liquidity of billions of dollars worth of staked assets.

Now, as part of our vision to bring the benefits of KIRA to the widest audience possible, we’ve formed a strategic partnership with a platform that makes diving into the burgeoning world of cryptocurrency and DeFi a safer, more intuitive experience — we’re talking about Public Mint!

As a platform built for issuing fully collateralized…


In this article, you will discover how digital fiat can be used to onboard users of legacy economies into the cryptocurrency space, incentivize them and secure decentralized networks with the value of real-world assets.

The most critical part of any financial system is trust, whether that trust comes from the authority of the government or the latest technological developments, it is essential that users of those systems have the ability to quantitatively measure that trust and understand the potential risk associated with storing wealth under the custody of financial platforms.

Building Lasting Trust

Within the KIRA network ‘trust’ is measured with the ‘value’…


What do KIRA and RAMP DEFI have in common, aside from a love of all caps? That’s right, staking. Specifically, both projects are focused on helping DeFi users extract every last drop of value from their staked assets. Given that KIRA and RAMP are pursuing similar goals when it comes to unlocking the full potential of any digital asset to generate yield, it makes sense to partner and pool our resources and brain power. So that’s exactly what we’ve done.

We’re pleased to announce that KIRA will be working with RAMP DEFI to roll out a Proof of Concept for…


Following our recent partnership with Unmarshal, which has accelerated development of our API toolset and data integrity verification technology making it easier for both frontend and blockchain applications to access and query blockchain state of many independent decentralized networks at the same time, it feels like a good time to re-explore the concept of liquid and leveraged staking.

What is liquid staking? What is leveraged staking? How do they work and who do they benefit? And how can KIRA optimize passive income generation while de-linking risk from the matrix?

Liquid Staking: An Introduction

If you’ve spent any time at all in the cryptocurrency space…


Following the launch of our public testnet a few weeks ago, we are delighted to announce a new strategic partnership with multi-chain data indexing network Unmarshal.

Going forward, the KIRA team will assist Unmarshal with development of data integrity verification technology, and will work closely together to ensure the best possible experience for end users accessing the interchain space. Thanks to on-chain data integrity verification, client-facing applications will be able to trust decentralized data providers rather than only centralized API providers such as INFURA.

At present, the Unmarshal network supports Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Elrond, and Polkadot as well as…


Virtually all blockchain developers are familiar with Infura, the scalable development suite providing instant API access to Ethereum. Infura and similar blockchain API on demand services, despite their ease of use, pose a real threat to any client-facing applications. This is particularly pronounced during utilization peaks such as periods of high market volatility when access to the client-facing applications such as centralized exchanges and wallets is most important for the users.

To mitigate issues associated with the centralization of API services, KIRA team has developed a decentralized version of Infura service. INTERX, aka “Interchain NginX,” which not only provides scalable…


In this article we will explore Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), concept of re-fungibility, spending pools, token buckets and explain how NFTs can be used to generate passive income for their holders. You will also learn how NFTs interact with KIRA Network to benefit its security and discover new mechanisms that provide market access and price discovery of Non-Fungible Assets.

TLDR

  • NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) — digital representation of unique tangible and intangible assets
  • Staking NFTs secures the KIRA Network through the Multi Bonded Proof of Stake consensus
  • KIRA Governance defines interest rates for staking NFTs
  • All NFTs on KIRA can be…


We are excited to announce that on December 29th, 2020 we will be launching the Phase 0 of the KIRA Testnet program where a group of selected individuals will have the opportunity to participate and iteratively test the earliest releases of the KIRA Network.

TLDR

  • Testnet Program Phase 0 starts on 29.12.2020
  • Participants will have to complete milestones and submit reports
  • Fill out this form before 12pm UTC on 28.12.2020 to apply for the Testnet Program
  • Bounties ranging from $50 to $1k worth of KEX, Validator and Governance seats can be won for submitting detailed and valuable contributions

Overview

Phase…


We would like to start this summary by thanking the KIRA community for supporting us throughout our journey thus far. Since the inception of the project almost two years ago and the development of the concept into a reality, to a sometimes long and arduous fundraising and marketing round that included 12 institutional funds, over 100 seed and private investors along with over 60 AMA’s!!!, we’re still more excited than ever for what’s to come in Q4 2020, Q1 2021 and beyond. …
