Babbitt reported that on July 18th, at the Polkadot China trip Beijing station hosted by Randam Capital, Gavin Wood introduced Kusama. He said: "Kusama is a newly developed, less stable test network. Just like a miner before going underground, he will put a bird in first to see if it will be poisoned. Kusama is like this for Polkadot. Kusama replicates the DOT distribution of the main network and adopts the same pass-through model as the main network, but is completely separated from the Polkadot main network and will not evolve into the main network; Kusama has no central stop switch. Kusama is a community-led network that will work with Polkadot. The main network is parallel."
