Kylin’s Latest upgrade: Kylin finished its code updates, upgrading its substrate pallet to polkadot-v0.0.30 Parachain contributors via proxies like Bifrost received their rewards in PCHU during November technical efforts.

Federated and Decentralized Parachain Oracle System: One of the final acts of our outgoing Tech Lead, Sylvain Cormier, was to create the FDPOS. This group comprises of over 35 team members from over 30 parachains interested in a parachain oracle system. A post was published on Polkadot Forum to this effect.

Technical Update Contributors: After the departure of Kylin’s Tech lead, the November and future technical updates will be worked on by the existing team of developers. This will entail the progress each developer made during the month, with relevance to key highlights that advance the technical progress of Kylin Network.

About Kylin Network

Kylin Network strives to be a composable and configurable multi-level oracle infrastructure built as a Polkadot parachain, for the democratization and delivery of accurate data on time, at a reliably low cost. Kylin hopes to offer a way for chain-agnostic APIs to serve data according to service level agreements (SLA) that the consumers of this data will be aware of.

Data source compatibility beyond price feeds will bootstrap a free data market. This will allow market demand to determine the direction of the innovation of a feed, its price, and supply. With dynamic NFTs & SFTs, Kylin’s ongoing development will innovatively tokenize data streams that democratically will be accepted on the Kylin Network.
