Two hours ago KILT was announced as the winner of the 6th Kusama parachain auction. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our community members who supported us throughout this exciting auction process.
Now that we’ve secured a Kusama parachain slot, we can move to the next phase. The momentous day is finally here: KILT Protocol is live!
We were thrilled to see the early excitement from our community, with more than 12k contributions voting for KILT since 27 August, when we launched the voting with the below announcement.
KILT aims to secure slot #6. The auction continues through Wednesday 8 September at 11:00 GMT which includes the candle phase.

13 August 2021, Berlin — KILT Protocol today announced the selection of the first 16 collators that will comprise the Initial Collators Programme. This cohort represents a distributed network of collators from around the world who are well known in the Kusama and Polkadot ecosystems.
The number of active collators will gradually increase to 75 after KILT’s mainnet launch, and become permissionless as the network matures. The Initial Collators include:
UPDATE, 19 August 2021:
We have made two updates to the Token Metrics document, originally published on 11 August 2021:
It’s exciting times for KILT as we get closer to crowdloan and mainnet launch on KILT’s continuous path to decentralisation. …
KILT is busy preparing for the next round of Kusama parachain auctions, and aims to secure one of the first slots using the Kusama crowdloan mechanism.
To encourage community participation, we have reserved 4.5 million KILT Coins of the initial distribution to thank the community for voting in support of our auction bid. This reserve was designed so that it will not introduce extra inflation into the system.
The legal entity behind KILT Protocol will also participate in the crowdloan vote, but will be excluded from receiving any of these reserved KILT Coins.
After we secure the slot, KILT’s parachain…
KILT Protocol aims to secure an initial Kusama parachain slot, planning to bid for slots in the 6–10 range. KILT’s team has been hard at work building and testing our technology so that we can launch with significant functionality, rather than adding core elements later. Here’s an update on KILT’s strategies towards network launch.
The long-awaited parachain auctions have started and, like all of you, we’ve been watching with interest.
Behind the scenes we’ve been focused on building and auditing our technology, and fine-tuning a token economy that could enable and incentivise functionalities in the network while aiming to avoid…

KILT Protocol is designed to be a fully decentralised permissionless blockchain network. That means we are building KILT to evolve into a blockchain that is run by the community, with decisions being made transparently on chain by KILT token holders.
As is often the case with cutting-edge technologies like blockchain, things can change even before they manifest! Previously I wrote about how I envisioned the KILT Protocol as a Nominated Proof of Stake (NPoS) network. …

There are many reasons why we chose to build the KILT blockchain on Substrate and plan to run as a parachain in the Polkadot ecosystem (i.e. the Kusama and Polkadot networks). One major reason is the fixed, low costs offered. For the first time, this will allow companies to incorporate permissionless blockchain into their business plans, knowing in advance what the costs of their transactions, and subsequently their product, will be.
To understand why this is a ground-breaking development for enterprise in general and us in particular, we…
25 June 2021, Berlin and Singapore — KILT Protocol today announced an integration with Subscan, a blockchain explorer built for Substrate-based networks. Subscan supports Polkadot, Kusama, Kulupu, Darwinia, Edgeware, Centrifuge and now KILT Protocol, as well as other networks.
Subscan can be used to search, analyse and visualise various types of blockchain data. In addition, Subscan’s responsive design supports desktop and mobile users.
Now users of KILT’s “Peregrine” testnet — and KILT’s “Spiritnet” mainnet as soon as it is live — can access Subscan to:
