Keynote : The Technology Layer for Tomorrow’s Metaverse

on Aug 8 @Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas by Sam Seo, Representative Director of the Klaytn Foundation

The metaverse is an essential industry field, not only as a platform but also as a space where many people will engage in the future. With Klaytn 2.0 focusing on gaming, diverse attempts are being made in a technical and general aspect to become a blockchain for metaverse.

No one likes to experience a long loading time for an internet or mobile service, but why are we fine with slow blockchain applications? While we are desperately looking forward to a time when blockchain is used widely across the general public, aren’t we missing the reliable speed that our society has become used to and taken for granted? For its part, Klayn aims to achieve technical prowess, accelerate the timing of mass adoption and stay away from the mindset that “We can be slow since the blockchain industry is at its initial phase”. We offer a fast and easy-to-use UX to creators and builders based on 1-second block finality.

On top of this, along with our open-source metaverse package and massively enhanced compatibility with other Layer 1 chains, Klaytn will be presenting our roadmap toward an optimized platform for the metaverse blockchain. Additionally, we will give you the first glimpse of our new future attempts to create a robust Klaytn ecosystem, so stay tuned!
