KardiaChain is a blockchain that interfaces different systems and applications in the blockchain environment. Their objective is to bring together an environment that consolidates the aggregate quality of all things and also establish the framework for the forthcoming blockchain mass reception.
The essential arrangement of KardiaChain is the Dual Master Node (or Dual Node for short), it has three known segments: Translator, Router, and Aggregator. This arrangement gives a down-to-earth and non-obtrusive approach to encourage secure and decentralized interchain association, reduces expenses, and increases speed.
KardiaChain was an idea concieved in early 2018 as a blockchain solutions ecosystem, having raised the development funding of $1.7mn via private sale in June 2019 for 16.32% of the maximum supply of their native token, KAI (total of ~816mn KAI allocated).
The token was later issued on the ERC-20 standard via IEO on April 8th, 2020, with a maximum supply of 5,000,000,000 KAI. 750mn KAI was available in the token sale and it sold out entirely, raising $1.08mn.
The KardiaChain main net was launched in December 2020, following which KAI was swapped to the native chain, which was previously in development. The main net utilizes dual Byzantine-Fault Tolerant Delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanisms on their Dual Node technology.
The remaining KAI tokens joined circulation via either block rewards for validators post-main net or vesting releases from the various allocations.
KardiaChain is a public blockchain that is mainly focused on Interoperability, it's the world’s first fully interoperable and non-invasive blockchain platform. Their invention, called Dual Node, allows them to expedite the blockchain mass adoption process in an efficient manner, reducing the need for educating the market.
They aim to provide more usability and blockchain features for various service providers that are joining the KardiaChain ecosystem. The goal is to build a complete blockchain ecosystem for institutions by taking advantage of 3 main components: gateway, infrastructure, and services
Gateway reduces the entry barrier onboard for non-crypto users onto blockchain via user-friendly payment channels.
Infrastructure is the interlinked public and private KardiaChain blockchain network for users and businesses to operate, leveraging the unique non-invasive interoperability.
Services are the traditional organizations that collaborate with KardiaChain to tokenize and decentralize their existing services/products to become more effective and efficient.
Supply Chain Management
KardiaChain smart contracts provide a secure and transparent yet convenient way to record and track any aspect of a product from its origin to authenticity.
Fully Decentralised Cross-chain Exchange
Their alpha DEX is running on NEO and Ethereum test nets, successfully swap between NEO & ETH, showing the capacity for ERC20-NEP5 token swap. The whole process happens and is recorded on-chain, Neo test net, EthereumRinkeby, and KardiaChain test nets.
The team currently has 4 offices in Singapore, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, and Seoul.

How it Works
The main solution of KardiaChain is the Dual Master Node. This solution offers a non-invasive way to facilitate decentralized inter-chain connection reduces costs and increases speed, further supported by KardiaChain’s sharding capability. It allows interactions between smart contracts on different blockchains and allows the transfer of assets and data cross-chain.
The Dual Master Node simultaneously accesses both ledgers of KardiaChain and the other blockchain of choice and uses the BFT dPoS consensus model to support the decentralization in cross-chain activities. It comprises of the following main components:
It utilizes Kardia unified Smart contract Language (KSML) to break the language barrier between different smart contract platforms, acting as a middleware for translation of instructions in the smart contract between KardiaChain and external blockchains.
It determines which is the best chain to direct the translated request based on the multiple inputs like current performance, fee, waiting time, and capacity.
It batches new updates from other chains in order to reduce strains on KardiaChain and potentially reduce one block of updates to one transaction on KardiaChain.
Smart contract templates that allow customization can be deployed on Kardia and then translated and forwarded as native contracts on correspondent chains. Furthermore, the Kardia ecosystem contains a decentralized exchange that allows atomic swap trading between assets on different blockchains.
Miners can stake KAI in order to become block creators and validators, join the consensus, secure the network, and earn block rewards. KAI serves as a transaction fee when submitting smart contracts, dApps, or making cross-chain operations.

-Trí Pham, CEO, and Co-Founder of KardiaChain shared
KardiaChain partnered with NEM, one of the early blockchain launched in 2015 and they have had so many recent collaborations with non-financial DeFi projects.
The KAI Membership DApp currently has more than 100,000 users worldwide. The integration of tokens (XEM) into the application will extend the KAI ecosystem to a wider and larger audience coming from the NEM community.
With many products in the KAI Membership integration roadmap, current and upcoming users from the NEM community will be able to experience multiple DeFi and real-world applications in a comprehensive KAI DApp. Also, the NEM ecosystem will also expand to have more products for their existing users and even attract new users.
KardiaChain also collaborated with DAO Maker, a warehouse of solutions for blockchain investors and users.
DAO Maker is a self-funded project launched in 2018, operating as an established consultant agency and software provider boosting startups in the blockchain space.
By integrating DAO Maker token to KAI Membership app as well as the Dao Maker solutions, it would bring in better opportunities for KAI holders to onboard a significant number of users to experience blockchain in a smart and convenient way. Furthermore, KAIstarter is a crowdfunding platform and exchanges its features with Dao Maker blockchain SaaS in order to enhance user experience.
KardiaChain also partnered with ShareRing, the world’s most secure and flexible identity verification system, designed to seamlessly integrate with businesses across a variety of industries, from travel to insurance, logistics, charity, cryptocurrency, marketplaces, and more..
Tim Bos, CEO of ShareRing, expressed a positive outlook with the partnership:

Tri Pham, CEO of KardiaChain also showed excitement over the partnership:
“We are lucky and predestined to meet ShareRing team by asking for some references and insights, also through a strong recommendation from ShareRing and KardiaChain’s trusted mutual partners; both companies met for exploratory talks in mid-December. ShareRing is a talented team that is always aiming for the best blockchain value in real life. We appreciate their vision and are willing to be companions in this regard.”
With the ShareRing’s App launch just around the corner, ShareRing will integrate KAI token, opening up a horizon of utility through ShareRing partner products, including travel services, e-commerce, e-visas, local delivery services, healthcare, passport apps, payments/foreign exchange apps, car rentals, insurance, and more.
ShareRing will integrate KAI into the ShareRing Ecosystem within the app wallet to be accepted as payment for any services on the ShareRing network, as well as for any of ShareRing’s connected partners across alot of industries. ShareRing may consider adding KAI’s services/dApps to their App as well in the near future.
Similarly, KardiaChain will integrate ShareRing’s travel and passport features into KardiaChain ecosystem via the KAI membership app with the top-up service, payment gateway, KAI master wallet, and Mai Linh taxi service.
