The time has finally arrived! As of 4:14 pm CET today, KILT is a fully decentralized blockchain network. This means that BOTLabs GmbH, the company behind the development of KILT Protocol, has handed over decision-making to the community. From now on, KILT will be run via a sophisticated system of governance in which any KILT Coin holder can propose changes to the network that can be voted on by the community. This level of decentralization is what makes Web3, the next generation of the internet, truly fair and exciting.
"Picasso to Collaborate with KILT Protocol to Leverage its Decentralized Identity Tools for the Creation of Secondary and Tertiary Primitives. Composable hopes that parachain procurement is in our near future, and thus are hard at work perfecting what we are building for Picasso, our Kusama parachain. An exciting new step we are taking in improving Picasso is exploring ways to leverage KILT’s decentralized identity technology. This will help us improve how identities are represented on Picasso, and will also help us better understand user behaviors on our offering. Through this collaboration, we aim to build several liquidity products."

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.
