Klaytn has been around for a year now and the team didn't take no for an answer at any obstacles that came their way in the process of enabling a new Blockchain platform globally. Here's a bit more about Klaytn and their amazing highlights.
Kakao's global public blockchain project Klaytn is an enterprise-grade, service-centric platform that brings user-friendly blockchain experience to millions. It combines the best features of both public blockchains (decentralized data & control, distributed governance) and private blockchains (low latency, high scalability) via an efficient 'hybrid' design. Klaytn is secured by participation from numerous highly-reputable brands around the globe, working together to create a reliable business platform atop a robust system of decentralized trust. Klaytn enables businesses and entrepreneurs today to capture value using blockchain technology. Klaytn is the future, designed by Ground X (information taken from Klaytn's website).
Worth to be celebrated!
Klaytn released their mainnet on June 27th, 2019 - The Cypress Mainnet.
Combining features of both private (low latency, high scalability) and public (decentralized data & control, distributed governance) blockchains. The team at Klaytn is always trying to deliver high performance, fast responses and flexible scalability solutions in hopes of catering to everyone's needs. The blockchain technology that Klayn offers caters well to small startups up to large scale enterprises, we like versatility! 💪
**2. Fee delegation policy**
Klayn has decided to implement a fee delegation policy after their 1 year anniversary rang its 12 bells at midnight. As their new policy, Klaytn has decided to cover all transaction fees for their partner developers and service providers who run applications (BApps/DApps) on Klaytn. Developers will be able to deploy or execute smart contracts for free.
*Music to our ears isn't it!*
The gifts aren't over yet! Furthermore, all wallet services which support KLaytn's KLAY and Klaytn-based tokens will also have their fees covered in order for the users to be able to send and receive tokens at no cost.
We haven't seen many teams consider so much their audience, partners and users together. A big round of applause! 👏
The fee delegation policy will last 1 year.
**3. State of BApps**
Here is a quick overview of the statistics of Klayn BApps/DApps on State of the DApps.
The total number of DApps have grown at a steady pace. Each project that came live on ou platform was always quite well advanced in their development stage. Another important point is, looking at the DApps per category chart, we can see that Klaytn DApps are varied over a wide array of categories, offering more for more people. Yet, the focus on social, games and marketplaces is a smart move because come to think of it, the applications we use on apple store and google pay are often from these same 3 categories (missing finance). We can then see there is a strategy in the DApps being built or moved to Klaytn per their focus of offering to their users.
**4. Browser extension**
