What is Kusama?

In the words of the development team, "Kusama is an early, unaudited and unrefined release of Polkadot." It's basically a live version of a test network for Polkadot, where parachains, dapps and staking can be done for a fraction of what it would cost to do on Polkadot. Features intended for Polkadot are first rolled out on Kusama, which has made it appealing to some as an experimental economy that may continue to hold value over time. The KSM token is used for staking on the network, which allows stakers to launch Validator or Nominator nodes – these are used to secure the parachains and the Kusama relay chain respectively. In return for staking, users are rewarded with additional KSM tokens. Tokens may also be used for governance and voting on upgrades to the protocol.
