What is KASPA?
The GHOSTDAG protocol is implemented by Kaspa. GHOSTDAG does not allow orphan blocks to be created in parallel and instead orders them in consensus. The blockDAG is actually a part of the Kaspa blockchain.
Future implementation of layer 2 solutions will be much easier due to the cool features included in the Kaspa implementation.

Kaspa is a completely open source project with no business model.
The founder is a Postdoc at Harvard University.
The paper on Ghost protocol was written by Yonatan.

What makes Kaspa unique?
The level of security offered by proof-of-work environments is unique to Kaspa. The main net operates at 1 block per second.
There is a monetary policy that decreases emissions based on the scale of music. The policy was activated with a block reward of 440 KAS. The block reward will be halved once per year, but it will be reduced every month. The ratio of block rewards in consecutive months is the same as the ratio of frequencies of two consecutive semitones.
The policy dictates how many coins are produced per second.
