Injective is partnering with Kylin Network to integrate with the Polkadot data economy. Moving forward, users will have seamless access to creating new derivative products that utilize Polkadot-based assets.
Kylin Network aims to build a cross-chain platform powering the data economy on Polkadot. Kylin is backed by the Web 3 Foundation and currently works closely with leading Polkadot-based projects such as Edgeware.
The ability to access robust and accurate underlying asset price data, especially when dealing with sophisticated derivative products, is not only important but crucial. Working with Kylin will provide a new avenue for us to bring on new Substrate-based assets onto Injective. In particular, Kylin can provide us with native access to Polkadot-based asset pricing with the need for wrappers.
Injective is already integrating with some of the best data providers in the industry today such as Chainlink, Band Protocol, and DIA. Adding Kylin to the Injective Data Alliance will help to further expand the possibilities on our DEX.
Injective is also aiming to create a number of unique derivative products that can utilize the native Kylin token. We have already begun to integrate with the Polkadot ecosystem through their work with Moonbeam. We plan to create new indices and futures that would consist of the Kylin token. This would provide our users with new ways for interacting with the Kylin token economy.
“We are extremely pleased to be entering into a strategic partnership with Injective protocol, being able to uniquely offer them DOT-based native asset price-feeding oracle services. In addition, we are huge fans of what they are accomplishing for their users in offering an extremely cost-effective, fast, and truly decentralized DEX,” said Dylan Dewdney, CEO of Kylin Network.
Lastly, we will look to potentially co-innovate on oracle scripting parameters that may help operationalize / monetize aspects of their DApp builders’ operations and developments on Injective Protocol.
“Kylin is quite an innovative platform providing data sources for Polkadot based assets. They will play an integral role within the Injective ecosystem moving forward as we look to introduce new cross-chain derivative products that encompass the larger Polkadot based ecosystem,” said Eric Chen, CEO of Injective Protocol.
Moving forward, we plan to continue strengthening out collaboration with Kylin with innovative new products for our respective communities.
