Kaia Community Committee Proposal [EN]


- Avengers Team Comprised of Domestic and International Crypto OGs: Includes Uncommon Lab, HashKey, SNZ, NGC, HTX, BNB Chain, etc.

- Proven Skills and Products: Featuring Fusionist, SmartLayer, Redbrick, and more.

- Comprehensive Understanding of Klaytn & Finschia Ecosystem: In-depth knowledge and experience about the ecosystem.

- Common goal of Re-creating “Klay Summer” Using All Resources.

[MKGA: “Make Kaia Great Again”]

1. Our Goal is to “MAKE KAIA GREAT AGAIN”

- Our goal is simple: “to recreate the golden age of Klaytn on Kaia”.

- The Golden Age of Klaytn (2021–2022): The peak period of Klaytn, dubbed as “KLAYTN SUMMER”, was undeniably the late 2021 to 2022. During this time, Klaytn-related projects dominated all domestic crypto channels. Numerous domestic projects eagerly launched on Klaytn, and many non-crypto users entered the crypto space to purchase Klaytn NFTs, making Klaytn the quintessential blockchain of Korea.

- Our Mission: We aim to create a “KAIA SUMMER” that surpasses Klaytn’s golden age. Utilizing all our resources, we will onboard global users and launch various products. Most of the preparations are already complete.

- What’s different this time?: Unlike Klaytn’s past peak, which was largely confined to domestic users, KAIA SUMMER will expand its user base globally. By continuously onboarding global projects, we aim to enhance the fundamental value of the mainnet.

2. Why KnightFury?

1) Expert Group

- Chairman: Uncommon Lab, an OG in domestic infrastructure and DAO operations.

- Committee: This “Avengers” collective is an accelerator that has served as a bridgehead for introducing various global projects such as StepN, Fusionist, and SmartLayer to Korea, the largest trading and investment institution in the Klaytn ecosystem. The group is also made up of various infrastructure companies, including those involved in 3D engines, token scripts, and decentralized bridges.

- Advisors: Brief introduction of notable names such as HashKey, SNZ, NGC, ABCDE, HTX, Fusionist, BNB Chain, etc., which are well-known with high anticipation from the crypto community.

2) Proven Expertise

- On-Chain Transaction Record: KnightFury’s first on-chain product, 0xSpin, achieved 46.6 million cumulative on-chain transactions on Klaytn within just five days of launch, securing the top spot.

- Demonstrating Our Potential: This is merely a glimpse of our potential. Our members hold a portfolio of global projects listed on major exchanges, such as Fusionist and SmartLayer.

- Fusionist Success: Fusionist recorded 16,000 users and 240,000 gameplay sessions during its beta launch in November 2023 and was subsequently listed on Binance Launchpool and OKX Jumpstart.

[Fusionist User Metrics for November 2023]

- SmartLayer Achievement: SmartLayer’s on-chain product, Smart Cat, accounted for more than half of all transactions on Polygon, recording a total of 3.54m Passes created and 311k Unique Active Wallets before TGE in January 2024.

[SmartLayer User Metrics for January 2024]

- We go beyond mere investment in such large-scale global projects, specializing in comprehensive roles including strategic planning, project building, narrative formation, partnerships, and organic project integration within web3 product development.

- Utilizing this web3 expertise and know-how, we plan to onboard global players and projects into the Kaia ecosystem, creating a playground where builders and users can thrive.

3) Comprehensive Understanding of Ecosystem Projects

- We pride ourselves on being a “live museum” of Klaytn, knowing every minor issue in the ecosystem.

- Since the pre-mining phase of KLAYswap in late 2020, we have been active participants in Klaytn DeFi services, including Blue Whale early membership NFT first-come-first-served minting (later changed to Dutch auction), KlayFi, EKlipse Finance, Electrik Finance, Popkorn Money, Flora Finance, and Sigma Protocol.

- We have directly participated in (or monitored) nearly every Klaytn NFT minting, including MetaKongz, KlayFox, MetaRabbit, MetaAdventure, NomadApe, and Injeolmi Sparrow.

- Similarly, we have actively participated in and monitored most Finschia projects, including DOSI Citizen, Hellbound, Citizen Pet, BeerGang, Game Dosi, and Pararium.

4) Comprehensive Understanding of Ecosystem Communities

- We have been actively participating in or monitoring Klaytn-related communities for a long time, including KlaytnX (now Kaia X), KlayCheck, Sigma & Shogun, Corini Children Open Chat, and Byeon Chang-ho’s Coin Academy.

- Within the community, Klaytn holders are weary due to the closure of numerous DeFi projects, the adoption of other mainnets by domestic companies, the lack of Klaytn utility, and excessive grants usage. There is a sense of crisis regarding the future direction after the integration, with many seeing it as the last opportunity to succeed. The Kaia integrated chain must improve its domestic and international image and avoid repeating past mistakes.

- Therefore, KnightFury Alliance aims to leverage the narrative of this integration to onboard innovative domestic and international projects onto the Kaia chain. Through transparent operations and communication, we strive to revitalize the Kaia chain and overcome the current challenges.

5) KOL Cluster

- The importance of Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) who introduce projects and lead communities through social media accounts in the web3 industry is steadily increasing. To ensure the success of the Kaia ecosystem, it is essential to strategize the engagement of the KOL community from the outset.

- KnightFury members and advisors already have direct contact with over 1,000 domestic and international KOLs, which are global and not limited to specific regions. Through these KOLs, we can directly reach a user base of over 20 million people worldwide. With this user base, we will proclaim “Make Kaia Great Again” (MKGA) and revitalize the upcoming Kaia ecosystem.

6) Good to Go

- We began building even before the community committee recruitment announcement.

- KnightFury Alliance’s first on-chain product, 0xSpin*, recorded 46.6 million transactions, 580,000 participating wallets, and an average of 396,000 active wallets within just five days. Notably, the number of active wallets exceeds the peak figures from 2021–2022 (approximately 200,000–300,000, source: CryptoQuant), reaffirming the potential of the Kaia chain and KnightFury in a short period.

- We already have plans to onboard over 20 projects, and the support from the Community Committee will serve as a catalyst to execute these prepared plans explosively.

3. What is KnightFury?

- KnightFury is the dApp playground and launch pool project of the Kaia ecosystem.

- KnightFury Alliance is the first full-stack builder community of the Kaia ecosystem, established specifically for KnightFury.

- The Alliance is a group of web3-specialized experts, including builders, investors, exchanges, infrastructure, and DAO operators.

- The full-stack builder community can source and develop products to activate the Kaia ecosystem, and carry out comprehensive activities such as accelerating, business development, and marketing.

- Additionally, KnightFury Alliance is an open international community with a stronger network of overseas players versus domestic ones.

- By introducing overseas players, web3-friendly strategies, and dApps that were absent in the existing Klaytn and Finschia ecosystems, we aim to lead the globalization of the integrated Kaia chain.

- In summary, KnightFury is an on-chain playground created by web3 experts who have voluntarily gathered to achieve the globalization of the Kaia chain and establish it as the leading mainnet in Asia.

5. Background and Necessity of the Committee Proposal

*Proposal Background from the Perspective of the Global Blockchain Market

- With the approval and launch of Bitcoin/Ethereum spot ETFs in the US market in 2024, the opportunity for capital inflow into the digital asset market has expanded unprecedentedly. While innovative technologies from the previous market cycle, such as DeFi and NFTs, continue to evolve, new business areas based on blockchain, such as Real-World Assets (RWA) and AI, are once again drawing significant market interest.

[US BTC&ETH Spot ETF All Launching in 2024]

- However, the launch of new projects is outpacing the growth of investors and users, leading to increasingly fierce competition for capital and user acquisition alongside existing projects.

*Why the Foundation Should Support This Proposal

- Peak and Downturn of the Last Cycle:
During 2021–2022, the Klaytn/Finschia chain experienced a peak, attracting significant attention and funds and recording high TVL. However, it failed to establish a long-term vision, strategic support, and a unique web3 culture. Combined with the overall rigid on-chain regulatory environment in the Korean market and a decline in user interest, the ecosystem and on-chain activity faced a downturn. Comparing six arbitrarily chosen chains, Klaytn ranked second in TVL in the second half of 2021 but has now fallen to the lowest position at sixth.

[TVL Chart by Chain: During the comparison period, Klaytn fell from 2nd to 6th place]

- The Launch of Kaia as the Perfect Timing for the Ecosystem Revival:
The launch of ‘Kaia (KAIA)’, the integrated chain brand of the two major domestic mainnets, Klaytn and Finschia, is generating a similar impact as a merger of the Web3 versions of Kakao and Line. This event is attracting considerable interest from overseas users, builders, players, and developers. For international projects, the launch of the Kaia chain can serve as an excellent marketing point for entering the Korean market. Kaia chain can leverage this aspect to actively promote chain activation and global expansion.
Despite its potential for growth, the current Klaytn network lacks projects that provide profit or entertainment to users, resulting in low activities. One of the main reasons is the absence of builders specialized in the Web3 ecosystem, leading to a decrease in new and existing user numbers, reduced ecosystem activity, and ultimately, a downward spiral in prices. KnightFury Alliance was established to address these issues.

- KnightFury Alliance at the Forefront of Kaia Ecosystem Revival:
KnightFury Alliance is a community at the forefront of reviving the Kaia ecosystem. Actively interacting with overseas ecosystem players, it achieves vertical integration of planning, investment, development, and marketing activities. Through the community committee, it discovers various projects and supports them with funding, technology, and marketing based on the extensive experience of its members. This maximizes opportunities to provide users with profit and entertainment, significantly contributing to the increase and activation of Kaia network users. Moreover, it plays a crucial role in enhancing the technical progress and competitiveness of the entire ecosystem.
The operating budget of the community committee, allocated from the Kaia Ecosystem Fund (KEF), ensures the financial stability of the committee, establishes a transparent budget management and reporting system, and enhances trust. The community committee not only executes short-term projects but also provides a foundation for establishing and pursuing long-term growth strategies. This promotes the sustainable growth of the Kaia ecosystem and plays an essential role in maintaining competitiveness in the future blockchain market.

In conclusion, this proposal will contribute to the overall development of the Kaia network by activating the ecosystem, attracting global users, promoting innovative projects, increasing community engagement, ensuring financial stability, and establishing sustainable growth strategies. Therefore, it is both urgent and appropriate for the foundation to actively support this proposal.

6. Committee-Led Business Initiatives

KnightFury (Playground for Kaia)

KnightFury Alliance is set to launch the following ecosystem products, allowing users to participate in various activities and earn tokens from different projects (both new and existing).

1) Redbrick Contents

Through the cloud-based engine of the Redbrick project, various contents such as 0xSpin will be provided. Users can earn RB points by playing these contents, which can later be swapped for Redbrick tokens, and also gain points that can be used to participate in LaunchPool.

2) Seven Dragons

Launching with technical support from SmartLayer, the dragon-raising game ‘Seven Dragons’ will mint NFTs that serve as Passports within the KnightFury ecosystem. These NFTs include token script functionality, aggregating all user activity data through the NFTs (featuring enhanced ERC-404 capabilities). The accumulated data and points can be used to participate in airdrop activities for ecosystem projects onboarded by KnightFury in the form of LaunchPool. This represents a new standard for integrating Web2 and Web3 data.

[Seven Dragons’ Dragon NFT Overview]

3) Staking Protocol

A Kaia-based staking protocol similar to Lido will be implemented. Users can stake Kaia tokens and receive tKaia (tentative name) as proof tokens for the staking. Through this, they can earn activity points and staking rewards.

4) Point System

The KnightFury platform will launch various contents to provide users with activities. Users can earn points by participating in various onboarded games, staking Kaia tokens, participating in voting, and checking in regularly.

5) Launch Pool

Launch Pool offers users the opportunity to access various projects. Points are awarded to users who engage with KnightFury Alliance products or contribute to the ecosystem. Users can then receive airdropped tokens from various projects sourced by KnightFury Alliance. Points from each round expire, and KnightFury Alliance continuously sources new builders and projects to promote ecosystem activity. This provides users with constant new opportunities, contributing to the activation and growth of the Kaia ecosystem.

7. Expected effects of committee

7.1. Economic effect

1) Increased liquidity and inflow of funds:

a) KnightFury aims to create an environment that fosters increased liquidity and capital inflow into the Kaia ecosystem by contributing to its activation through project building and collaboration.

b) To activate the ecosystem and attract capital, it is crucial to build innovative projects and engage in high-level collaboration that captures the attention of users and investors. This involves showcasing new technologies to the market, employing novel marketing methods, and demonstrating creativity and execution in presenting first-of-its-kind initiatives. Ultimately, this can lead to the inflow of more funds into various projects and services within the Kaia ecosystem.

c) By developing and executing initiatives through collaboration with impactful projects, it is expected that transaction volume and retention will increase, leading to chain activation, ecosystem expansion, and the inflow of new capital.

Case i) Redbrick’s 0xSpin:

One of the KnightFury Alliance members, Redbrick, launched its first Kaia on-chain product, ‘0xSpin,’ which ran a campaign for five days. During this period, it achieved over 580,000 participating wallets and more than 46.6 million on-chain transactions, quickly becoming the number one on-chain transaction product in the Klaytn ecosystem, according to Klaytn Square. This success was made possible by the discussions among committee members with diverse experiences and the incorporation of new technologies such as Paymaster to make the user experience as seamless as possible, akin to Web2 levels. While the user’s play experience was straightforward, the underlying technical infrastructure was a conglomerate of various blockchain-related technologies. This marks the beginning of our Alliance’s plan to introduce more new technologies and user-friendly products to the Kaia ecosystem.

[Redbrick Event Metrics over five days from May 8 to 12, 2024]
[Redbrick’s 0xSpin at Top Transaction Count Ranking]

Case ii) Fusionist’s $ACE Token

One of the advisor candidates for the KnightFury Alliance, Fusionist, was the first to establish a user reward system that connects Web2 data with Web3 data. Through this system, users were able to convert data generated from Web2 activities, such as social interactions, into on-chain data in realtime, providing an optimized user experience. The Fusionist team, with over 18 years of experience in the gaming industry, has gained market attention through AAA game development and innovative GTM strategies. Their strategies include Bounded Token, NFT ownership data tracking, Web2/3 data tracking and conversion systems, ERC-5169 standard utilization, point airdrop systems, AI social marketing, cross-chain bridges, and domain systems. With these innovative approaches, Fusionist became the first project to simultaneously launch on Binance Launchpool and OKX Jumpstart.

Case iii) SmartLayer’s Smart Cat

SmartLayer, a member of the KnightFury Alliance, has successfully launched the ‘SmartCat’ on-chain cat-raising game and token script technology through the implementation of its developed ERC-5169 standard. The SmartCat game generated a significant amount of on-chain data, with over 28 million transactions. This substantial on-chain data holds considerable importance as it was entirely generated by users who paid fees and purchased items for their Smart Cat. The success of SmartCat has led to the creation of similar products on various chains, establishing it as a leading example of successful user onboarding.

SmartLayer’s token, $SLN, has demonstrated market leadership through its integration of the newl y developed ERC standard and adept strategic planning, culminating in its direct listing on the OKX exchange.

Case iv) Recent Example of Binance’s Call for Small and Medium-Sized Projects

In 2024, the strategies of major players in the crypto VC industry resembled a capital war. Some large projects raised their FDV (Fully Diluted Valuation) to trillions of won before listing, making it impossible for individual investors or small VCs to participate. These projects shifted to generating stable returns of 2–3 times through large investments in the tens to hundreds of billions of won. However, over time, these projects inevitably led to losses for many individual investors due to increased selling pressure from token vesting.
As this issue was raised, Binance began encouraging the listing applications of small and medium-sized projects, emphasizing the contributions of the community. This highlights the importance of the community and individual investors. Like this example from Binance, KnightFury Alliance understands the value of the community. We have agreed to create a playground where members of the Kaia ecosystem can experience on-chain products integrated with new technologies and receive rewards for their activities. Additionally, we aim to realize a community-centered ecosystem expansion strategy by providing an environment where even small projects can receive comprehensive support, including funding, technology, marketing, and strategic advice.

2) Attracting Investment and Creating Economic Value:

a) Investing in successful ecosystem projects is the most direct means of creating value for users. The token allocation for early-stage project investments is typically around 10% of the total tokens. When a single investor’s share does not exceed 20%, the successful investment amount by a single investor can result in a value creation effect of approximately 50 times.
Given the rapidly changing nature of the digital asset industry, an indiscriminate investment approach (Spray & Pray) without a sufficient understanding of the industry leads to a low investment success rate, thereby diluting the value creation effect. Particularly when tokens are used as investment resources, there is a risk of price decline due to liquidity. Therefore, it is essential to enhance the investment success rate through industry experts who possess ethics and professionalism.
KnightFury Alliance leverages the investment expertise of its members and a well-connected global network to attract global investors’ interest in the Kaia ecosystem and recruit long-term builders, making it the ideal ecosystem investment partner.

[Value Creation Effect of an Ecosystem Investment with Ethics and Expertise]

7.2. Industrial Impact

1) Introduction of New Industry Standards and Tracking Industry Trends:

  • Through innovative projects, we aim to establish standards within the blockchain industry, thereby securing the ecosystem’s reliability and stability. The Seven Dragon NFT project or the point system introduced by KnightFury are examples of first-time implementations on the Kaia Chain of new industry standards attempted in other EVM chains. These efforts demonstrate Kaia Chain’s technical competitiveness and its commitment to staying abreast of industry trends.

2) User Exposure and Ecosystem Expansion:

  • The Web3 industry focuses on acquiring users through various strategies. Increasing user exposure is a key strategy for user acquisition, and promotion and communication through social accounts are crucial tools for expanding the Kaia ecosystem. Relying solely on the foundation’s marketing efforts is insufficient. The KnightFury Alliance can leverage the social accounts of its members, whose combined marketing capabilities far exceed those of the foundation, to maximize user exposure to ecosystem activities. This approach is expected to facilitate the establishment of external partnerships, collaboration with global projects, and strategic positioning in the competitive landscape for ecosystem user acquisition.
[Social Account Comparison

7.3. Social Impact

1) Building Web3 Native Communities:

  • Web3 communities are fostering unique identities and cultures distinct from traditional corporate and consumer cultures. Therefore, even as we continue to pursue business initiatives linked to traditional industries, it is essential to establish the identity and culture of projects and user communities nurtured through Web3’s unique framework. The KnightFury Alliance, composed of Web3 native players, deeply understands the culture of the Web3 community within existing industries. KnightFury aims to mitigate the downsides such as predatory speculation and marketing culture while enhancing the positives and innovative attempts with sharp insights, thereby becoming a bridgehead for nurturing the unique Web3 community. We will establish a positive identity for the community and encourage active user participation, thereby strengthening cohesion through initiatives such as the Launch Pool, active communication through social accounts, ongoing business collaborations with external ecosystems, and engaging games that seek novelty and fun.

2) Sharing Economic Value:

  • KnightFury Alliance aims to create channels through which the value generated from on-chain activities is shared with the community. By minimizing intermediaries, we strive to ensure that the value created by users’ on-chain activities is directly shared with them through avenues such as Launch Pool, business collaborations, and user rewards. This approach is expected to create a virtuous cycle that enhances the economic scale of the entire Kaia Chain ecosystem.

In conclusion, if the Community Committee is successfully formed and operated, the Kaia ecosystem can expect various positive economic, industrial, and social impacts, which will significantly contribute to the long-term growth and development of the Kaia chain.

9. How Committee Works

The KnightFury Alliance Committee, an organization leading the activation and globalization of the Kaia Chain ecosystem through project development, investment and marketing, plans to establish the following operational structure and systems for efficient and systematic operations:

9.1. Operational Structure

9.1.1 Organizational Structure

  • Chairman: As the leader of the committee, the Chairman oversees overall operations and makes key decisions. The Chairman sets the strategic direction of the committee, coordinates cooperation among members, and secures the resources and support needed to achieve the committee’s goals.
  • Committee Members: Each member of the committee contributes to the achievement of the committee’s goals based on their diverse expertise. Each member performs their designated roles and responsibilities and collaborates for the successful progression of projects.
  • General Meeting: This is a decision-making body where the Chairman and all committee members discuss important decisions of the committee. General meetings are held regularly to discuss major issues, make decisions, and review the progress of projects.
  • Subcommittees: These are small groups responsible for in-depth discussions and execution related to specific areas or projects. Subcommittees are formed to achieve specific goals and operate flexibly as needed.

9.1.2 Operation Processes

  • Quorum for Decisions in General Meetings: Decisions regarding the addition or removal of committee members and budget execution require the approval of the majority of the general meeting.
  • Sub-Committee Agendas: Depending on the matter, sub-committees will be operated to handle specific issues.
    - Project Discovery and Evaluation: Discover promising projects through various channels and evaluate the technical/financial marketability of these projects.
    - Investment Decision and Execution: Make investment decisions for evaluated projects and allocate the necessary funds.
    - Marketing Strategy Formulation and Execution: Develop and execute promotional and marketing strategies for the projects through various channels.

9.2. System Development Plan

9.2.1 Committee Management and Reporting System

  • Quarterly Reports: The general meeting will review the committee’s performance and direction through quarterly reports within one month after the end of each quarter.
    - Investment Management: Track and manage the liquidity status and performance of invested projects through LP provision, token swaps, and direct & matching investments.
    - Marketing Management: Introduce tools to manage the progress of marketing campaigns and analyze their performance. This will allow for tracking and managing the effectiveness of marketing strategies.

9.2.2 Communication and Collaboration Platform

  • Discord and Twitter: Main channels for direct communication with Kaia ecosystem users. Moderators are composed of personnel with basic customer service skills as well as specialized knowledge in DeFi, NFTs, and other Web3 areas. These platforms operate 24/7 year-round to cater to both domestic and international users.
  • KnightFury: As the playground of the Kaia Network, it offers various activities and encourages square voting participation among ecosystem participants. Contributors receive airdrops of tokens from various projects collaborating with KnightFury.
  • DragonSwap: By providing liquidity of invested projects and Kaia tokens, it allows Kaia ecosystem participants to engage in transactions as needed, contributing to the increase of Total Value Locked (TVL) and transaction facilitation within the Kaia ecosystem.

10. Work Flow Sample

1) All Activities in the KnightFury Ecosystem Convert to Points

The KnightFury ecosystem features a variety of individual campaigns. Users can earn ecosystem points through various activities, including 0xSpin, Seven Dragon, Staking Protocol, inviting friends to the platform, and completing daily missions.

2) Introduction of ERC 5169 Standard, Token Script, and Enhanced 404 Technology

The second on-chain product of the KnightFury ecosystem, Seven Dragon’s NFT, is not just a simple PFP. It incorporates Token Script technology from Smart Layer, which introduced the ERC 5169 standard to the market, and enhanced 404 technology. Token Script technology enables the storage of diverse user activity data from both Web2 and Web3 on the NFT, allowing for the programming of various functions into the NFT. The Seven Dragon NFT will serve as the ecosystem passport for KnightFury within the Kaia ecosystem. All user activity data obtained through various campaigns will be stored in the Seven Dragon NFT using Token Script technology, directly linking to ecosystem points. Users can earn points by actively participating in activities like 0xSpin, Seven Dragon, Staking Protocol, inviting friends to the platform, daily missions, and other ecosystem projects. This NFT, integrated with enhanced 404 technology, can also be traded on decentralized exchanges. However, if the number of tokens held in the user’s wallet drops below one, the NFT will be burned.

3) Spending Earned Points

Users can spend the points they earn through various ecosystem activities to receive airdrops from new projects or other benefits. The magic of Token Script technology lies not only in its ability to store diverse user activity data and the points earned from these activities in the user’s NFT but also in its ability to deduct these scores under specific conditions. In the KnightFury ecosystem, Token Script technology forms the foundation of a Playground that allows users to earn points through various activities and spend specific points to enjoy diverse benefits.

4) Incubation Layer for Web3 Startups

Alliance members will provide various support, including investment, technical assistance, promotion, and strategic advice, to attract new projects to the Kaia ecosystem. Even projects from other chain ecosystems can enter the Kaia ecosystem through decentralized bridges. Given the current low participation rate of new projects on the Kaia chain, the KnightFury Committee will not limit the scope of new project discovery to the Kaia chain alone. Instead, by creating an environment where projects from other chains can engage in diverse activities on the Kaia chain using token bridges and chain abstraction technologies, the committee aims to make the Kaia chain an attractive environment for various startup projects. Comprehensive support in funding, technology, and strategy will be provided to ensure that the Kaia chain becomes a launch pool chain or an incubation layer.

5) Budget Transparency Protocol

a) Budget Transparency: All budgets are executed transparently and disclosed through the governance forum or community forum. This ensures that ecosystem participants have a clear understanding of how the budget is being used.

b) Example of Budget Execution: The development of the KnightFury Launch Pool project provides a specific example of budget execution.

  • Token Acquisition: Tokens valued at $70k based on the valuation of the launch pool collaboration project are acquired for a budget of $50k.
  • User Rewards: Tokens worth $20k from the acquired tokens are allocated for user rewards.
  • Liquidity Pool: The remaining tokens worth $50k are utilized for the liquidity pool.

6) Governance Boost Program

Holders of $tKAIA can vote on agendas posted on Kaia Square, and participants will earn reward points on the KnightFury platform for their participation. This initiative by KnightFury Alliance aims to encourage voting participation among the Kaia network ecosystem. Additionally, airdrops will be distributed to $tKAIA holders (those who have staked $KAIA) based on the points earned, further promoting $KAIA staking and enhancing its value. The issuance of more $tKAIA signifies increased $KAIA staking, which is expected to generate several positive effects for the network, including: 1) enhanced network security, 2) improved network reliability, 3) token price stabilization, 4) increased governance participation, and 5) community participation.

11. Anticipated Challenges in Committee Operations and Solutions

By implementing these risk management plans, KnightFury Alliance can effectively identify and respond to various potential risks, thereby enhancing the project’s potential for success.
