Klaytn, the blockchain project led by the South Korean Internet giant Kakao, has announced the winners for its BApp (Blockchain Application) competition, ‘Klaytn Horizon.’

Back in May, Klaytn Horizon invited all developers worldwide to build blockchain applications on the Klaytn platform whose mainnet launched this past June. Prioritizing its efforts towards mass blockchain adoption and ecosystem building, Klaytn prospected for competent blockchain projects.

Over 100 projects were submitted by developers across the globe including Korea, U.S., China, France, Russia, Switzerland, Slovakia, India, the Philippines, and many others.

Most of the projects are Klaytn-based tools including wallets and exchanges that enhance BApp development and usability. The judges selected 15 award-winning teams that have the most potential to deliver practical service with meaningful values based on user-friendly blockchain experience.

The top five winners of the Klaytn Horizon are as follows:

The first five teams of Tier 1 will receive $100,000 each, which will be awarded in KLAY token, while Tier 2 (the second five teams) and Tier 3 (the third five teams) will receive $50,000 and $30,000 worth of KLAY each. Information on all the winning teams can be found on the competition website.
