Integritee Network has won the 21st Kusama parachain auction and will now be onboarded as the 23rd Kusama parachain.

The official Twitter handle of Kusama, the canary chain of Polkadot, announced on Monday, January 17th, that Integritee Network had won the 21st parachain auction with the help of three thousand crowdloan contributors who locked KSM tokens in the favor of winning parachain. The announcement reads:

“Welcome to the cₐₒ @integri_t_e_e!

After winning my 21st auction, Integritee will be onboarded as my 23rd parachain [20-auction winning parachains, plus #Statemine & @encointer] at the start of lease 19. Three thousand network stakeholders locked up KSM in favor!”

According to Polkadot.js, Integritee collected 20,000 $KSM in its crowdloan and reached its hard cap. The backer of the network will receive a fixed amount of TEER, the native coin of Integritee, for each KSM they contributed to Integritee crowdloan. According to a blog post, backers of the Integritee Network will receive 40 TEER for every KSM bonded.
