Kakao’s Klaytn Partners with Atlas and Content Protocol to Push Mass Blockchain Adoption
One of South Korea’s biggest messaging firms, Kakao announced that its global public blockchain, Klaytn will enter into a partnership with Watcha and Atlas. The two large user pool based service providers in blockchain projects will work with Klaytn to push for mass adoption of the blockchain based service technologies.
Notwithstanding, Klatyn has furthered its goals by partnering with top service providers including ‘Wemade Tree' and ‘Piction Network' in October and other blockchain projects such as ‘Contents Protocol' powered by ‘Watcha,' ‘Atlas' powered by ‘Zanadu,' and ‘BORA' developed by ‘Way2Bit.'
Klaytn has partnered with Content Protocol and Atlas in a move that will see the partners deploy their decentralized applications (dApps) on the Klaytn mainnet once it launches. In addition to the marketing appreciation that will be strengthened by the partnership, Klaytn will also use the popularized blockchain to expand its networks/partnerships.
Other Partners With Klaytn Blockchain
The Klaytn blockchain has in the past few months made a couple of partnerships including SIN Protocol, Cloudbric by Penta Security, Insureum by Zitko and Antube, a short-video entertainment service powered by ‘DATA' integrated with Yomob. Speaking on the future of Klaytn’s partnerships, Jason Han, the CEO of Ground X, enforced their partnerships with successful firms as the key to building a user-friendly blockchain service. He further added,
“Together with initial service partners, Klaytn will take the blockchain industry to the next level by focusing on creating meaningful real use-cases, which stands as the next key challenge in our industry.”
Jason heads the development and operation of Klaytn blockchain protocol.
Klaytn to Launch its Mainnet in 2019
After several successful trials of the Klaytn test net which was released privately in October, Klaytn announced the possibility of launching its mainnet in the first half of 2019. Klaytn provides user-friendly UX/UI and intuitive DX environment for developers to create blockchain services to increase the adoption of the technology.
