IOK Partnership Updates: Dec 2023 (2)

Klaytn’s Ignite On Klaytn (IOK) program, launched last August, offers an avenue for new DApp projects to access the platform and technology capabilities of Klaytn’s ecosystem partners. The initiative aims to empower these projects to firmly establish their presence in both the Asian and global markets. 

The IOK program encompasses collaboration across 15 key project areas,  including Wallets, Game-Fi Tools, On-chain Data Ranking, Marketing, Oracle, Acceleration, Development Outsourcing, NFT Marketplace, DeFi Services, Security Tools, and API Nodes. Beyond these, the IOK program also shares strategic insights for localization in the rapidly growing Web3 gaming industry in Asia and know-how in user acquisition. All to bolster the success of DApp projects operating on Klaytn Mainnet.

We’re excited to introduce companies onboarding the IOK program periodically on Klaytn’s official blog and social channels. If you are interested in joining the IOK program, please visit this page for more details and application processes.

About Chain Light

Website l Twitter l Medium l LinkedIn

Founded in 2016, Chain Light is an expert-founded company that provides blockchain-customized security solutions. To date, Chain Light has secured approximately $15.5 million in funding through its pre-A series and has received investments from some of South Korea’s leading conglomerates, including NAVER, K2G, and Dunamu. In addition to security auditing, Chain Light operates DART, an advanced risk detection system, and Relic Protocol, a zero-knowledge proof-based trustless oracle service. 

With a proven track record in numerous cases, Chain Light’s security audit identifies vulnerabilities and provides tailored recommendations to improve the security of blockchain solutions. For example, we operate DART, a risk detection system for exchanges and project builders. Leveraging Chain Light’s eight years of cybersecurity expertise, DART can proactively and comprehensively detect potential risks in DApps’ codebases and external environments, helping them to quickly identify and respond to risks. The Relic Protocol, Ethereum’s trusted oracle for historical data, leverages zk-SNARKs and optimized on-chain state verification to help DApps securely access historical data, reduce reliance on third-party authorities, and minimize gas capacity. 

Chain Light’s inclusion in this IOK partnership will enhance the security of DApps in the Klaytn ecosystem, especially when Klaytn DApps are onboarded to DART, which will provide sophisticated risk detection proactively. As such, Chain Light is expected to set a new standard for DApp security in the Klaytn ecosystem.
