The notation should be:
(9)r79c8 = (9-8)r8c7 = (8-4)r3c7 = (4)r2c8 => r2c8 <> 9

But at this point there is a (9)Swordfish:r279c348 which is simpler to find.
This then leads to an (8)Swordfish down the line and no multi-digit chains are needed at all.

I felt fortunate to be able to solve this with five moves (could have been fewer had I noticed the Swordfish earlier).

Multi-coloring (9), from a kite with transport
XY-Wing (89-4)
Swordfish (9)
Swordfish (8)
XY-Wing (18-9)
