What Is Klaytn?
Klaytn is a Layer 1 public blockchain focused on creating a business-friendly environment. Its aim is to help entrepreneurs and enterprises of all crypto literacy levels build highly usable blockchain applications, and to encourage mass adoption of crypto.
Klaytn comprises a comprehensive suite of tools, including a public blockchain network, a development platform and developer-supporting tools. Built as a fundamental trust layer for the metaverse, Klaytn respects participation from all communities and brings them into an exciting virtual world filled with possibilities.
What Is KLAY?
KLAY is the native token of the Klaytn network. It’s used to pay fees for the creation and execution of smart contracts. Crucial to Klaytn’s operations, it fuels virtually all processes that take place on the platform.
KLAY is a form of payment made by the user to the consensus nodes (CNs) which execute operations. It’s used in yield farming, by which users provide liquidity or stake KLAY tokens for liquidity mining.
On the network, NFTs can also be minted using the KLAY token. Additionally, KLAY is used as an incentive to reward its developers.
KLAY Price and Tokenomics
At the time of this writing (Aug. 10, 2022), KLAY has a total supply of about 10.8 billion tokens with a circulating supply of close to 3 billion. For every new block, 9.6 KLAY are minted; about 0.3 billion will be minted annually, equivalent to 3% annual inflation against the initial supply. In 2018 and 2019, 36% of its supply was sold to 26 private investors at its initial coin offering (ICO.)
With every new block’s addition, block rewards are aggregated and distributed in a predetermined ratio as follows:
Klaytn GC reward: 34%
Klaytn Growth Fund (KGF): 54%
Klaytn Improvement Reserve (KIR): 12%

How Does Klaytn Work?
Klaytn has been carefully designed to integrate the following aspects into its network: Tokenized economy, governance system, and an incentive program to enhance collaboration. Thanks to its governance structure and optimized practical Byzantine fault tolerant (pBFT) consensus mechanism, the network is able to process up to 4,000 transactions per second (TPS) with a one-second deterministic finality for instantaneous transactions.
The Klaytn blockchain features a customizable structure and uses a permissioned proof of stake (PoS) mechanism that supports a limited number of validator nodes.
On Klaytn, there are three types of nodes: Consensus nodes (CNs), proxy nodes (PNs) and endpoint nodes (ENs). CNs are managed by core cell operators (CCOs), which are in charge of block generation. The network boasts a block generation time of just one second.
PNs provide the network interface and transmit the transaction request to the CNs while propagating the blocks down to the ENs. ENs serve as the endpoints handling the network’s remote procedure call (RPC) API requests; they also process data exchanged in the service chains. These validator nodes are run by the governance council (GC) members, each of whom must stake a minimum of five million KLAY coins to become a core cell operator.
The network runs on the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM), has a low gas fee that’s approximately one-tenth of Ethereum’s and supports the execution of Solidity contracts.
What Makes KLAY Unique?
The Klaytn network can be easily customized and connected with other chains, without the need for prior technical knowledge. The network’s service chains are scalable, and can be customized to meet specific decentralized application (DApp) requirements.
The Klaytn Network is an ideal choice for enterprises such as mobile gaming giants Netmarble and WeMade. It’s also the official blockchain partner of the Bank of Korea’s CBDC project, although the bank is running on a modified and private version of the network.
In addition, the network has a unique GC comprising several global enterprises and DAOs. Klaytn supports web3 and the usage of EVMs for the metaverse as a whole, and will adopt certain EVM specifications.
