Klaytn, the blockchain platform led by the South Korean Internet giant Kakao, today announced the official listing date of its native KLAY token on crypto exchange Upbit Indonesia.
The listing will take place on Thursday, September 26th. Supporting the trading of over 150 crypto assets, Upbit is the global cryptocurrency exchange operated by South Korean fintech firm, Dunamu, with operations in Singapore and Indonesia.
Developed by Kakao’s blockchain unit, Ground X, of South Korea, Klaytn is a public blockchain platform whose mainnet launched this past June.
With a mission to trigger mass adoption of blockchain, Klaytn offers high performance and flexible scalability solutions for developers and businesses to smoothly operate blockchain apps (BApps). To date, Klaytn has partnered with a total of 52 service partners, in various industry domains.
More than a dozen of its partners have already launched blockchain services, while others are set to open later this year. Klaytn, together with Samsung, also recently released the KlaytnPhone, the blockchain variant of Samsung Electronics’ latest flagship series Galaxy Note10. The phone is pre-loaded with Klaytn-powered applications and digital wallet, linked with Samsung Blockchain Keystore.
“This initial KLAY listing on Upbit marks a significant milestone. We expect more developers to join our Klaytn ecosystem, and together with our community, we look forward to becoming Asia’s leading blockchain platform.”
– Jason Han, the CEO of Ground X, who heads the development of Klaytn
KLAY can only be transferred between Upbit Indonesia and Upbit Singapore wallets. The KLAY token listing on Upbit Singapore is scheduled to be confirmed in the near future.
