Kylin Network is extremely pleased to add yet another DeData ecosystem partner: Shyft Network!

What does Shyft network do?

Shyft Network is a public blockchain protocol designed to aggregate and embed trust and validation into data stored on public and private ecosystems, and permissioned and permissionless networks. By facilitating bridging across siloed datasets, Shyft allows for layering of context on top of data, ultimately turning raw data into meaningful information.

Shyft Network’s opt-in compliance infrastructure, such as whitelisted addresses and Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) and GDPR compliant systems, will be further strengthened by Kylin Network’s data infrastructure and oracle systems. Kylin Network commits to provide required datasets to Shyft Network, allowing it to build a “compliant DeFi” framework, which would allow institutional funds and financial institutions from capital markets to deploy funds into the DeFi ecosystem in a secure and compliant manner.

What will we do together?

  1. Kylin Network will afford the opportunity to place-hold a validator node for Shyft Network. The first validators are vetted by the Kylin Network such that the health of the network in the crucial early days of the ecosystem is robust. We expect heavy demand to be a validator node, and only select partners will be invited to take part.
  2. Kylin will also work with Shyft Network as a parachain to call each other’s functions via XCMP pallet-calling. XCMP pallet-calling is a revolutionary way to call the functions of another parachain or parathread on Polkadot. Kylin has innovated this feature and will work closely with Shyft Network to identify cool ways to implement it in synergy.
  3. With data feeding provided by Shyft Network, and then filtered through Kylin Network’s consensus and arbitration mechanisms, an augmented robustness of data accuracy and trustability becomes possible. Basically, we can add another layer of trust and validation to whatever data that Shyft Network provides.
  4. In turn, Shyft network will expose Kylin Network to its burgeoning community and innovations in the field of compliance-managed data solutions.

Why are we excited?

Dylan Dewdney, Chief Stratosphere Officer of Kylin Network:

“The coming renaissance in DeData-enabled Web 3 solutions will naturally include emergent data validation layers. Kylin Network and Shyft Network will work in concert and synergy to find ways to validate and render the many nascent use cases of validated web 3 data journeys into incentivized frameworks that undergird more accurate and trustworthy results”

Juan Aja Aguinaco, Co-Founder of Shyft Network:

“Shyft’s strength comes from its network of partners and participants; as a data validation layer, Shyft Network’s integration with Kylin Network helps build a stronger, more reliable and functional oracle infrastructure. By leveraging Kylin’s consensus and arbitration mechanisms, we get closer to reaching our goal to enable institutional funds from capital markets and financial institutions to participate in compliant DeFi and create a new era for crypto.”
