KMA Treasury​

KMA token has a governance controlled treasury, which controls the KMA token supply for public good. The KMA treasury address is dmwQify37xfGt1wDhAi8zfvovsAkdK3aD4iqW8dn8nfrsAYsX.

Existential Deposit​

The Existential Deposit is the minimal amount that a user needs to hold in order to keep the account active. For example, if Bob creates an account with zero balance, by default, the account will not appear in the ledger state. Now, if Alice sends Bob no less than 0.1 KMA, then Bob's balance will be added to pallet_balances as part of ledger state. However, if Alice tried to send Bob less than 0.1 KMA, the transaction would be rejected since if ledger the accepted the transaction, Bob will have a KMA balance less than 0.1, which will violate the existential deposit requirement. Similarly, Alice cannot transfer out her balance such that she has less than 0.1 KMA left. She can either choose to leave more than 0.1 KMA or send all the remaining balances and remove the account from the ledger state.
