Kylin Weekly Update: Maiden Edition — Referendum #205

Project Update

A few weeks ago, we announced that Pichiu, Kylin’s Canary Network, successfully secured slot #31 on Kusama. This occurred after six auction attempts, the seventh attempt being the lucky charm we needed to secure our place on the Kusama Network. As some might know, Kusama is the experimental network for Polkadot and acts more like a testnet, whilst Polkadot is the mainnet.

Projects hoping to build on Polkadot can only have their tokens on the Polkadot mainnet after securing their parachain slot. To get to that state of launching on Polkadot, the project’s use cases must be tested on Kusama. Projects like Kylin often go the route of an ERC-20 token standard for fundraising. Then, after securing a Kusama parachain slot, a project will launch their Canary Network’s token. In the case of Kylin Network, ours is Pichiu. $PCHU is the token.

In the not-so-distant future, when Kylin wins a Polkadot parachain slot, we will have the Kylin ($KYL) coin live on the Polkadot mainnet as it finally migrates to its own native chain.

Kusama onboarding Setbacks

The Kylin technical team faced some difficulty getting onboarded to Kusama within the scheduled timeline. Technical difficulties occurred from the incorrect root and endowed accounts, also the inability to upgrade the genesis runtime and updating of the Pichiu tokenomics.

To rectify these issues, the Kylin team followed due process by creating proposal #69. Thank you to our passionate community and those who voted on our proposal to move it to a referendum status.

Results for the Vote for Referendum 205

Kylian’s, we are proud to announce that the referendum passed with a super-majority vote. This will allow the Kylin Dev team to now be able to move forward with building the project out. We are one step closer to having our Canary Network token $PCHU live on Kusama.

The Kylin CTO Sylvain and our Tech Team are very thankful to all who voted in favor of the referendum and can now look forward to completing the next milestones for a successful launch on the Kusama Canary Network.

Our goal is to become one of the top projects in the Polkadot network in the near future.
