The Kora Network is a platform built on blockchain technology that unlocks global growth by linking the value in local ecosystems with global markets. We originate under-securitized assets such as agricultural cash flows, mining, corporate equities and bonds, and many more into security token chains. In doing so, we will create an efficient market, creating trust, security, and transparency.
The Kora Network will be built on Ethermint, We chose Ethermint because it supports the Ethereum development community, which is the largest in the blockchain space, while also supporting high volumes of transactions and providing flexibility for more extensive user privacy. Producers will compete to be selected by publishing their hardware and network specifications, displaying their digital identity and making the Kora Network compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.
Only the block producers with the best specifications and highest processing time will be consistently voted for. In this way, we will produce large blocks with significant amounts of transactions in a latency of three to five seconds, leading to the scalability required for legitimate use cases.
Ethermint integrates with the Cosmos Network in order to build an “internet of blockchains.” By integrating with the Cosmos Network, we will be able to connect with parallel blockchains like Ethereum, Bitcoin, the Cosmos decentralized exchange and various others. As a result, the Kora Network will be100% interoperable with other blockchains.
KNTThe native Kora Network token will be referred to as “Kora Network Token” or “KNT” and will be used as the staking unit for selecting block producers, as well as a single medium to pay for costs incurred by the Kora Network. Holding KNT equates to having a partial role in the Kora Network.
When users transact on the Kora Network, they will pay a fee denominated in KNT and set by the validating Block Producer. The Block Producer shares this fee with the holders who voted for them. High transaction fees, which only benefit the block producers and stakers who voted for them, will prevent users from transacting on the Kora Network. The less transactions that occur on the blockchain, the less rewards all block producers and stakers will receive. Thus, KNT holders are incentivized to vote in block producers who keep transaction fees low.
