Klaytn Foundation, established to build and decentralize the ecosystem of South Korea’s leading Layer 1 blockchain Klaytn, has teamed up with Finschia Foundation, the operator of the Finschia blockchain developed by LINE Tech Plus, to propose the merger of the two existing blockchains into a new mainnet. The two blockchain foundations will submit the integration proposal to their respective governance members today to open up the proposal for discussion, and voting will take place from 26 January till 2 February 2024.

The proposal aims to create a new industry leader with a technologically superior blockchain that supports both EVM and CosmWasm, as well as one of the largest ecosystems of DApps and users in Asia. The two foundations will also merge into one organization, combining their technology, services, and business networks which include Kakao, LINE, and many other strategic partners.

The creation of Asia’s largest Web3 ecosystem

The proposed merging of Klaytn and Finschia, the de-facto Web3 leaders in South Korea and Japan respectively, will create Asia’s largest Web3 ecosystem with a massive user base of over 250 million1 digital wallets interacting with more than 420 DApps. The new mainnet will inherit Klaytn’s integration with Kakaotalk and Finschia’s integration with LINE—both leading messaging platforms used across Asia—bringing a user-friendly, integrated Web3 experience straight into the phones of hundreds of millions of users.

Post-merge, the unified foundation will continue to pursue ecosystem expansion in the RWA tokenization, GameFi and DeFi verticals through collaborations with Japanese, South Korean, and Southeast Asian partners, while continuing to develop messenger-based Web3 services and the digital commerce platform. With access to every Kakaotalk and LINE user, the new public blockchain will also act as a springboard for Asia’s IT and entertainment enterprises. Last but not least, the merger will also create the largest Web3 business network in Asia.
