About Klaytn (KLAY)

Klaytn is a blockchain protocol prioritizing the metaverse, GameFi, and the Web3 economy. Its native cryptocurrency, KLAY, is designed to enhance payment systems in a revolutionary manner. The Klaytn token and blockchain network have garnered significant attention thanks to their appealing features for Web3 enthusiasts.

What is Klaytn?

Klaytn employs a unique consensus algorithm that achieves absolute transaction finality in just one second. This rapid finality ensures responsive user experiences and supports cases requiring near-instant and irreversible confirmations, such as real-time minting of in-game item drops. 

The swift finality also positions KLAY as an excellent token for blockchain payments. With Klaytn's efficient consensus mechanism, users can enjoy seamless interactions and timely transactions within the ecosystem. KLAY is the native cryptocurrency of the Klaytn blockchain platform, developed by Ground X, the blockchain subsidiary of South Korean mobile giant Kakao. Klaytn aims to provide a user-friendly blockchain platform that facilitates efficient and scalable decentralized applications and services.

The KLAY team

In June 2019, GroundX, a subsidiary of Kakao, South Korea's largest mobile platform, created and launched the Klaytn blockchain. Building on its successful implementation in Korea, the Klaytn Foundation was subsequently established as a non-profit organization committed to the growth and global expansion of the Klaytn network and its ecosystem.

How does Klaytn work? 

Klaytn operates on a hybrid consensus mechanism combining Proof of Work (PoW) elements and Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (PBFT). This innovative approach enables the network to achieve high transaction throughput, low latency, and improved security.

In addition to its consensus mechanism, the Klaytn blockchain adopts a decentralized governance model that involves various stakeholders in decision-making processes. Key participants, such as initial service partners and the Klaytn Governance Council, actively contribute to the platform's development and evolution through collaborative decision-making.

Speed and efficiency

Speed and efficiency are key features of the Klaytn blockchain. The native token, Klay Token, facilitates near-instantaneous transactions, crucial in Web3, the metaverse, and the gaming ecosystem. The ability to process transactions quickly and efficiently allows the Klaytn blockchain to attract a broader user base and gain further prominence in these industries.

Cost-effectiveness

Cost-effectiveness is a significant advantage of Klaytn's blockchain network. Unlike traditional transactions that involve multiple intermediaries, each imposing fees, Klaytn eliminates the need for intermediaries. As a result, transaction fees are significantly lower, leading to increased cost savings for users. 

Transparency and security

Transparency and security are key aspects of the Klaytn blockchain. Transactions carried out on the network are transparently recorded and stored in an immutable manner, guaranteeing a high level of security. The decentralized nature of the blockchain further strengthens the resistance of transactions against tampering and fraud, fostering user trust and confidence. Moreover, users can verify their ownership of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) minted on the Klaytn network, adding an extra layer of assurance and authenticity.

Scalability

Scalability is a notable strength of Klaytn. The platform's hybrid consensus mechanism empowers it to handle a high volume of transactions per second, ensuring scalability and effectively meeting the increasing demands for cross-border payments. 

Klaytn’s native token: KLAY

KLAY serves as the native cryptocurrency of the Klaytn ecosystem. Since Klaytn operates on its own blockchain, KLAY is classified as a coin rather than a token.

KLAY tokenomics

KLAY tokenomics are structured with an indefinite maximum supply, allowing for the potential minting of an infinite amount of KLAY. However, there is currently a total supply of 5,769,915,359.77 KLAY tokens.

With each new block added to the blockchain, 9.6 KLAY coins are minted. These newly minted coins and the transaction fees are collected in that block as the "block reward."

The block reward, which consists of the newly minted KLAY coins and transaction fees, is then allocated to various entities within the Klaytn ecosystem. This includes the Klaytn Governance Council, responsible for governing the network; the Klaytn Growth Fund, dedicated to fostering ecosystem growth; and the Klaytn Improvement Reserve, aimed at supporting platform improvement and development.

Distribution of KLAY

The distribution of newly-mined KLAY is as follows:

  • 34 percent is reserved as a block reward for the Klaytn Governance Council.
  • 54 percent is allocated to the Klaytn Growth Fund (KGF).
  • 12 percent is designated as part of the Klaytn Improvement Reserve (KIR).

KLAY use cases 

KLAY serves multiple purposes within the Klaytn ecosystem. It functions as a governance coin, playing a role in the decentralized governance of Klaytn. Additionally, KLAY is essential for purchasing NFTs and participating in the metaverse. Furthermore, Klaytn's low transaction fees make KLAY well-suited for micropayments, allowing users to engage in small-scale transactions easily.

What does the future hold for Klaytn

With the ongoing expansion of blockchain technology adoption, Klaytn is positioned to impact the global financial landscape significantly. By capitalizing on the strengths of blockchain technology within the gaming and financial sectors, Klaytn is driving the path toward widespread adoption of Web3
