We’re very excited to announce that Chorus One is now live on the KYVE Network mainnet.
Kyve aims to revolutionize customized access to on- and off-chain data by providing fast and easy tooling for decentralized data validation, immutability, and retrieval. With these tools, developers, data engineers, and others can easily and reliably access the trustless data they need in order to continue building the future of Web3.
It is a PoS blockchain built with the Cosmos SDK. It has two layers: the Chain Layer and the Protocol Layer, each with its own node infrastructure.
- The chain layer is the backbone of KYVE and is an entirely sovereign Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain built with/on Ignite. It’s run by independent nodes, which enable users to support and secure the KYVE blockchain.
- Sitting on top of the chain layer is the Protocol Layer, which enables the actual use case of KYVE’s data lake. This includes data pools, funding, staking, and delegation.
The protocol layer nodes are responsible for collecting data from a data source, bundling and uploading it to any decentralized storage solution, and then validating it, keeping track of which data is truly valid for its users to tap into. This enables KYVE to store any data permanently and in a decentralized manner, creating a Web3 data lake.
Via KYVE, developers first input the desired endpoint from which they would like to fetch data and then fund a pool with $KYVE. Node runners wanting to participate in the protocol will be the ones fetching, bundling, storing, and validating the data to earn $KYVE rewards.
Data pipeline is another way of using KYVE. Through a non-code solution, KYVE data can be imported into any data source supported by Airbyte within just a few clicks. Since KYVE fetches raw data, it allows you to transform it to best fit your use case.
John Letey, Kyve’s co-founder & CTO, joined our podcast and told everything you need to know about Kyve, including some fun facts: John wrote his first program in C++ when he was only 8 years old.
At genesis, inflation was disabled. A governance proposal is currently being voted on to activate inflation with default parameters that were calculated considering the staking ratio at genesis. The goal is to reach an APY of 20%, a reference value influenced by other Cosmos networks.
The project is backed by multiple relevant foundations such as Near, Solana, and Avalanche, to name a few.
