Fri, 31 May 2019, 10:52 am UTC

Klaytn, the public blockchain platform being developed by Kakao's blockchain subsidiary Ground X, has announced a new batch of initial service partners.

In March, Ground X released Klaytn’s public testnet, called ‘Baobab,’ which followed the trial run of the private testnet 'Aspen’ started in October 2018. The company will launch the mainnet on June 27, 2019.

Klaytn, which had previously roped in 26 initial service partners, has added 8 new partners to the list, bringing the total to 34 initial service partners.

Ground X said that the latest round of partnership includes some of the most promising projects engaged in distinctive blockchain-empowered businesses in various industry domains. This includes

  • nBlocksHunt – A gamified location-based service, backed by VR technology. It is operated by Neoply, the blockchain arm of one of Korea's largest game companies, Neowiz.
  • Directional – A blockchain-based peer-to-peer stock lending platform for individual investors. It has been selected by the Financial Services Commission to participate in the newly enacted financial regulatory sandbox.
  • Sliver.tv – A U.S.-based esports live streaming platform powered by the Theta blockchain network, a decentralized CDN (content delivery network.
  • GUHADA – An e-commerce platform for pre-owned designer goods, operated by Singapore-based TEMCO.
  • Sessia – A Russia-based social network service integrated with tokenized incentives for users' reviews on their offline experiences.
  • REDi – A blockchain-based marketplace for new and renewable energy.
  • HAIVE – A UGC-based interactive language learning service from China.
  • BolttCoin – An incentivized healthcare service from India, leveraging blockchain and gamification.

The initial service partners will utilize the deployed Klaytn testnet and work towards further reinforcing Klaytn's ecosystem by releasing their blockchain applications at the time of the Klaytn mainnet launch.

"With a mission to create substantial real use cases, we are partnering with promising blockchain projects developed by globally successful service providers with a prospective user base of tens of millions," said Jason Han, the CEO of Ground X, heading the development and operation of Klaytn.

"Together with our partners, Klaytn will take the blockchain industry to the next level by prioritizing our efforts towards the mass adoption of blockchain services as to substantiate the value and utility of blockchain technology."
