Introduction to KuChain (KCS)

One of the most recent exchange-chains to go live is the KuChain. Like HECO, the Binance Smart Chain and the OKExChain, its a product of a crypto exchange, which in this case is KuCoin. So, in this article we will explain what the KuChain is and how it works. 

What is KuChain #

The KuChain, launched in April 2021, is an exchange-chain built by the fans of KCS and KuCoin. The KuChain is an Ethereum-based decentralized public chain with high performance. It’s designed for trading applications such as decentralized exchanges (DEXs) and decentralized lending and borrowing platforms.

Like most other blockchains that focus on decentralized finance (DeFi), KuChain is compatible with Ethereum and ERC20 smart contracts, which offers extremely low migration costs for projects. It will improve the user experience by lowering the threshold for the landing and development of decentralized apps, while at the same time providing community users with a more convenient, faster, and lower-cost blockchain experience.

The team behind the KuChain have recently launched the KuChain Bridge, which enables users to transfer their assets from the Ethereum network to the KuChain. They also recently launched the KuChain Ambassador Program, which users can register for.

KUCHAIN Ambassadors are divided into KuChain Technical Ambassadors and KuChain Community Ambassadors. The KuChain Technical Ambassador is an important representative of KuChain’s technical resources. Its main responsibilities are to establish projects on KuChain, grow developer communities, help developers with resources (documents, guides, etc.), and other technical tasks.

KuChain Community Ambassadors are the KuChain community’s representatives for communication and delivery, whose main responsibilities are to host local conferences and seminars, graphic design, blog writing, translation, video production, and other community-based work.

KuChain Ambassadors enjoy the following benefits:

  • Funding: Ambassadors will get funds in return for their contribution to the community.
  • Green lane: Ambassadors will be invited to exclusive events, enjoy the Ambassadors-ONLY channel, and contact the core team members.
  • Special Identity: Ambassadors will have the right to deal with some affairs of KUCHAIN ecology and other issues.

KuChain’s Goal #

The goal of KuChain is to solve problems such as low performance (scalability) and high transaction fees. In order to provide community users with faster, more convenient and low-cost experiences, the KuChain is developed to feature high throughput, low latency, low transaction cost, and satisfactory security and stability.

Johnny Lyu, CEO at KuCoin Global, commented: “We believe that blockchain technology will accelerate the flow of value around the globe. We take it as our mission and will make great efforts to achieve it for the future. KuChain also represents a key step towards decentralization beyond the integration of open-source blockchain communities. We welcome the community members and enthusiasts of the blockchain world to hold hands and promote the development of KuChain and blockchain technology.”

How KuChain Works #

Like the OKExChain, The KuChain has been built with Cosmos SDK. The Cosmos-SDK is an open-source framework for building multi-asset public Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchains as well as permissioned Proof-Of-Authority (PoA) blockchains.

KuChain implemented the Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus mechanism. It also reduced the block confirmation period to 3 seconds to improve the processing power and performance on the chain.

The KuCoin Token (KCS) is the governance token of the KuChain and is used to cover for transaction fees made on the KuChain. The token is also used for governance, voting and the security of the KuChain.

Conclusion #

The KuChain offers users high scalability and low transaction fees and due to its EVM compatibility it is an excellent alternative for exchange-chains such as OKExChain, the Binance Smart Chain or HECO-blockchain. So, if you are looking for a community built blockchain, you should definitely give the KuChain a try.
