Admin Keys

  • There is a team admin account which can deploy contracts, and on-chain gov can as well (30-8-2023). These have no other permissiones
  • Plans to have a Sentinel technical council, chosen by the Kujira team (29-8-2023):

“The Kujira Sentinel is the technical version of the Senate. By providing the CW4 multisig contract address with chain-wide contract instantiate permissions, we'll create better development velocity and autonomy for protocol builders, without sacrificing security. Furthermore, by delegating contract instantiation permissions to a multisig of a select group of technical experts, deployed code can be assessed and verified more rigorously than is currently possible with the global governance deployments. Long-term, the Kujira Sentinel will create a foundation for a peer-led audit and review process, significantly reducing the cost to teams launching new protocols.”

On-chain Governance

"In order for a contract to launch on Kujira, it needs to be voted in via governance."


  • From their blog (17-10-2022):

"The Senate is composed of no more than 9 and no fewer than 3 individuals. Senators do not serve for a set term and can be added to or removed from the Senate at any time. All that is required is a governance vote. Each has an equally weighted vote. They cast votes on proposals related to requests for grants from the community fund. A proposal requires a quorum of 75% and approval requires more than 50% support. We are initially limiting the Senate’s scope to community spend proposals.

The Senate is structured around two new smart contracts; a CW-4 “Group” contract and a CW-3 “Multisig” contract.

  1. The CW-4 Group contract is owned by the native on-chain governance module, and as such, members of this Group can *only* be added and removed through a mass-participation governance poll.
  2. The CW-3 Multisig contract is where treasury funds will now be held, and funding proposals will now be submitted, where they can run for anything up to 2 weeks until the required threshold of signatories have voted. This contract reads the state of the Group contract in order to determine who is allowed to vote and whether a proposal has passed or not."

Notable Governance Votes


  • Community pool has a treasury of $170k. Most of it in axlUSDC (29-8-2023).
  • From the docs (1-2023):

"It is replenished through the community fund, which accumulates 2% of network fees from gas and transactions on the Kuijra network's first-party dApps, as well as from revenue share on third-party Kujira dApps."



  • The KUJI token was released through a token generation event in November 2021. The release schedule will conclude on November 9, 2023 at 12pm UTC, when all tokens will be fully vested.

Token Allocation

  • From the docs (1-2023):

"It has a total supply of 122,398,190.844391 (122.4 million) tokens. The original supply of 150 million tokens was reduced through a governance vote on January 18, 2022, which resulted in the burning of liquidity pool rewards."


  • KUJI is not an inflationary asset and relies on adoption of its decentralized applications and products to generate fees (5-2023).



Other Details

Coin Distribution

  • Top 10 validators have enough to reach quorum for a vote (33%).


Transaction Details

How it works


  • From their docs (2-2023):

"gas fees may be paid in any token on the Kujira network, so using our cross-chain bridge or IBC transfer on BLUE found here, simply move tokens to the Kujira network and then you can use those tokens to pay gas fees"

  • From their docs (1-2023):

"All fees collected on the network are paid directly to stakers through the validators, rather than being converted to KUJI first. This makes it easy for users to accumulate a diversified staking yield rather than just more KUJI. Kujira is also adding the option to redeem staking rewards as KUJI based on popular demand."



  • From their docs (6-2023):

"Staking KUJI on the Kujira network is an instantaneous process. Unstaking or unbonding KUJI is a bit more complicated. To unbond KUJI on the Kujira network, 14 days must lapse for the unbonding process to finish."

Validator Stats

Has 111 validators (31-8-2023).
