Advancing our crypto-first governance strategy

TL;DR:

  • Klaytn will focus on onboarding more crypto-first organizations into our Governance Council
  • In line with this new governance strategy, Worldpay and Amorepacific will be stepping down from the Governance Council by the end of July
  • NFTBank and Jump Crypto will be joining the Governance Council on 22 July 2022

The world is awakening to the potential of Web3 and the metaverse. Major brands around the world have either already jumped onboard or have concrete plans to do so, and the eventual passing of this crypto winter will see the rise of successful crypto-native organizations as new leaders of industry.

As the world takes another step towards the metaverse, the time has come for Klaytn to shift its governance strategy. Moving forward, Klaytn will focus on onboarding more Web3 and crypto-first organizations to our Governance Council (GC). Beyond collectively leading Klaytn towards our vision for the metaverse, these new GC members will also be able to play a greater role in directly contributing to and strengthening the Klaytn ecosystem.

In line with our new direction for Klaytn governance, there will be a series of changes to our Governance Council members. Worldpay and Amorepacific will be stepping down as GC members by the end of July, and will be succeeded by NFTBank and Jump Crypto which will both be onboarded to the GC on 22 July 2022.
