Kusama (KSM)

Kusama is a pre-deployment experimental environment for Polkadot, an open-source and global network of blockchains founded in 2016 by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood. Kusama is built with a nearly identical code base as Polkadot. The network is an innovative development environment for teams to quickly experiment with custom and innovative blockchains (parachains) that are being prepared for Polkadot deployment. Any official upgrade to the Polkadot network is developed and tested on Kusama.
