Gavin Wood Recommends Pause after Five Weekly Auctions

According to Wood’s recommendation, a pause after the first five weekly auctions is needed to evaluate the performance of the network before starting another batch of five parachain slot auctions in line with the schedule earlier mentioned.

The report further added that these auctions will determine which parachains will be included in the Kusama relay chain.

Gavin Wood noted:

“Kusama exists as the Polkadot canary network and therefore to help protect Polkadot from a serious issue by allowing functionality to exist in the wild’ for as long as possible…

“Since the amount of protection it gives is in some way proportional to the amount of time it is active prior to Polkadot, there is a clear reason for deploying this logic as soon as possible for the good of Polkadot.”
