Klaytn in Forbes Blockchain Top 50 2022

We’re proud to announce that Klaytn is once again featured in the Forbes Blockchain Top 50! The list represents enterprises embracing blockchain technology to speed up business processes, increase transparency, and reduce operational and transactional costs.

This makes it the second year running that Kakao is featured on the list. This year, Forbes highlighted the ease of user accessibility via the integration between the KakaoTalk mobile messenger application, its built in Klip wallet, and Klip Drops, the NFT marketplace, and how these work together to provide a frictionless tokenized creator economy journey on the Klaytn blockchain. Amassing close to 1 million users within a year, Klaytn has shown how the Web 3 can be easily accessed by users with the right infrastructure and integration know-how in place.

This year’s list also further reinforces the trend of enterprise blockchain adoption that was seen in 2021, with more companies on the list deploying blockchain technology for real use cases rather than simply adopting bitcoin.

“Interestingly, most companies on the 2021 Blockchain 50 are not actually bitcoin speculators, but instead are looking for innovative ways to employ the technology underlying the cryptocurrency.”

– Michael del Castillo, Associate Editor, Forbes

Beyond the back office innovations, global brands are now also setting their sights on the metaverse — and Klaytn is uniquely positioned to serve as the gateway for them to jump into this new frontier by providing the full suite of supporting services beyond a high-performing blockchain platform, including:

  • Support for Ethereum equivalence, which allows Ethereum developers to migrate their DApps over with minimal code changes
  • Our comprehensive metaverse package, which contains a full suite of tools, SDKs, platforms, smart contract libraries and more to streamline development
  • Dedicated, customizable service chains to meet the unique throughput and security needs of every builder
  • A $1 billion Eco Fund to support, invest in, and reward high potential and successful DApps on the Klaytn network, and more

Our one-stop integrated offering has already led to a series of high profile partnerships with organizations such as GMO Internet Group, Salim Group, Animal Concerts, East NFT, and F10, with many more in the pipeline as we collectively strive to build a vibrant metaverse for all to enjoy.

“We have built tremendous momentum over the past three months and are well positioned to ride the metaverse wave in 2022. Strategic partnerships in Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, the US and Singapore are core components of our international expansion.”

– David Shin, Head of Global Adoption, Klaytn Foundation
