Kava Labs Partners With Akash Network to Provide Decentralized Hosting for The Kava Ecosystem

·2 min read

Akash Network will receive funding from the Kava Ignition Fund to provide distributed hosting for the frontend applications of Kava Ecosystem projects.

SAN FRANCISCO, October 13, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kava Labs™, an open-source and non-custodial developer of financial products and services for decentralized finance (DeFi), announces Akash Network as its preferred distributed cloud provider for the Kava Ecosystem.

Akash Network has been selected by Kava Labs as the next recipient of Kava Ignition funding to further decentralize the Kava Ecosystem. As the preferred distributed cloud hosting solution for the ecosystem, Akash will provide hosting and compute power for decentralized, censorship-resistant frontend applications of protocols built on the Kava Platform.

"The Kava Ecosystem is all about creating the most secure and scalable decentralized platform for DeFi," said Scott Stuart, CEO of Kava Labs. "As our preferred cloud provider, Akash Network will empower developers to bring that decentralization all the way through to the frontend of their applications."

The partnership between Kava Labs and Akash Network will initially focus on delivering decentralized versions of existing frontend applications, including the Kava App and a decentralized Kava Ecosystem analytics dashboard.

"We’re proud to provide a decentralized solution for cloud compute to Kava Labs and its ecosystem," said Greg Osuri, CEO of Akash Network. "Hosting the decentralized version of the Kava App along with their analytics dashboard is one step closer to a truly decentralized Internet."

Akash will also provide upcoming Kava Ecosystem projects with compute credits in the form of the Akash Token ($AKT), Akash Network’s utility token, to support the hosting of decentralized frontends. The long-term goal of the partnership is to implement decentralized frontend applications for every piece of the Kava Ecosystem.
