What is Klaytn (KLAY)?

The Klaytn blockchain was initiated by the South Korean big tech company Kakao to be the backbone of their services. Kakao is one of the largest South Korean companies and combines several services such as social media, banking and ride haling. Even though the blockchain has launched in 2020, there are already over 60 decentralized and centralized apps in their ecosystem. The development of the blockchain is not centrally controlled by Kakao, but by a governance counsel consisting of 30 crypto and non-crypto companies, such as Binance and LG but also Kakao.

Our take on Klaytn

In contrast to the failed attempt by Facebook (now Meta) to establish an own blockchain, the South Korean big tech company Kakao was more successful. However, unlike Libra (Meta's project), they did not create a stable coin, but a volatile coin. Even though Klaytn has not been used very much yet, there are some signs that could increase its usage in the future. Klaytn is expected to become the backbone of services from Kakao and the South Korean economy. In addition, Klaytn has recently partnered with Opeansea, so NFTs on the Klaytn blockchain may soon be offered on Opensea's marketplace.
