Media Coverage

Since the launch of Kylin Network, we have been in discussion with many blockchain/crypto veterans, and along the way we are privileged to see our name mentioned in multiple news, articles, forums, reports, and tweets.

To list a few:

Community Development

  • The majority of Kylians gather in our Telegram official group, in which specific community rules are laid out and enforced.
  • We have also begun an official “Kylin Technical” group on telegram in advance of our public testnet. This will be a public venue to engage with more technically-oriented discussions and questions and will be led by some of our technical team and some of our more technical community members.
  • In December, Kylin Network allocated a small fund to subscribe to a premium community bot account to help our community managers and ambassadors to surmount fake accounts, scammers, and unsolicited messages.
  • PolkaAMA is a platform Kylin team created that aims to be the platform to share expertise, advertise and connect the whole family of Polkadot projects and everyone interested in Polkadot.
  • Kylin Official Announcement is the official group to issue all Kylin’s official messages. We highly recommend you subscribe to this channel to stay updated with our latest development. (We would like to remind you again that there hasn’t been a TGE yet for KYL. So if you encounter any Smart Contracts/Pools on DEXes like Uniswap labeled as Kylin or KYL they are FAKE! So for your own safety DON’T put any funds into them!)

Team Expansion

With the Recruitment Announcement, we have received a lot of feedbacks and been impressed with the talents demonstrated by our audience. Thank you all for the unbelievable support.

Long story short: Screening is ongoing and candidates are flowing in.

However(!), please say hello to our newest team member, Ryuhei Matsuda (Japan). Ryuhei brings an impressive amount of experience to the table — familiar with both frontend and backend development, he started contributing on blockchain projects from early 2017. Adept at javascript, go, java, c++, and Rust, he has proven his ability over the years to help architect and lead large projects or join existing teams with equal ease. Ryuhei was previously CTO at Trade Pharma Network and Lead Developer at BlocX. We are pleased to have Ryuhei take the role of Blockchain Research and Development Lead. We hope everyone gives Ryuhei a warm Kylian welcome!
