We are very excited to announce and formally acknowledge that, previous community member, Sam Elamin, will move formally to the title and role of Chief Technical Officer of Kylin Network.

Sam joined Kylin a few months ago as Tech Lead, and in that short timeframe has significantly transformed the vision of Kylin Network into reality, helping to launch our Testnet, helping to recruit other talented developers, and even innovating on fundamental and foundational aspects of Polkadot itself.

We are proud and grateful to have Sam in the Core Team, and at this time we feel it is necessary to acknowledge the key role that he has played and will play in the future of Kylin Network. Indeed, the next major growth phase of Kylin belongs to developers! We foresee that as time goes on, Sam will take more and more of a leadership role both within Kylin and in the broader ecosystem.

As a former community member, Sam also validates our vision of the organic nature of a DAO orientation to our project — in taking a leadership role at this level he is living proof of the power of open, decentralized systems. As we move toward a DAO, it’s our vision that many roles, including leadership ones, will be born organically from the community.
