“The as soon as wholly experimental, unaudited trial community meant to function a sandbox for Polkadot builders is now price nearly $300M.”
Withiam famous that the Web3 Basis beforehand acknowledged that 1% of the DOT provide can be allotted to Kusama’s stakeholders and group — suggesting KSM might comprise “a future declare on DOT.” Nevertheless the researcher factors out that Kusama is at present trading at a 600% premium over 1% of DOT’s market cap.
“Most sane traders may discover this irrational, even by crypto requirements.”
Following Kusama’s current hackathon, the challenge has launched an formidable challenge in partnership with fellow Polkadot ecosystem member Robonomics to develop “an interplanetary structure of the Kusama community” able to relaying information between Mars and Earth.
The challenge, dubbed ‘Kusama on Mars’, will search to mitigate the altering sign transit time ensuing from the fixed movement of the planets by constructing a parachain with “non-constant block time.”
The structure would see a devoted blockchain stay on Mars that communicates with different chains hosted from Earth. The challenge has been informed by the United Nations’ 1979 Settlement Governing the Actions of States on the Moon and Different Celestial Our bodies.
