KYVE Network

Introducing KYVE

In early 2021, KYVE’s founders Fabian Riewe and John Letey came together to participate in a bounty to bridge Polkadot data to Arweave, a permanent data storage solution. After creating a valid solution, and with the help of Arweave’s founder, Sam Williams, they realized that if their solution was to be more decentralized, it could apply to other blockchains and, in turn, aid valid data accessibility for all.
