This is onpar with the level of [the daily transactions of] Ethereum.
Klaytn Will Lead the Global Market beyond Asia
“Klaytn Governance Council is the first and the only platform in the world that is jointly operated by numerous global firms,” Han said. “As much as Klaytn has already become the representative platform in Asia, it will become the standard blockchain platform in the global market … The Libra Association started off in a form of consortium like Klaytn, but performance-wise, Klaytn is ahead.”
Kakao Supports Klaytn
Parent company Kakao has plans to support Klaytn. “Kakao launched Ground X to prepare for the blockchain era, which is based on the fourth revolution, and have already achieved many accomplishments,” said Kakao CEO Yeo Min-soo. “Based on 40 million users, Kakao will support Klaytn as it become the largest global blockchain platform.”
Kakao launched a blockchain-based reward point Kakaocon, and plans to launch Klip on instant messaging app Kakao Talk in the first half of next year.

Klaytn GC includes 27 companies, including LG Electronics, Netmarble, Kakao and Celltrion, as well as foreign firms like crypto trading platform Binance, Huobi, OKEX and Indonesia-based internet firm Axiata Digital. Recently, SK Networks and Hanwha Systems also said they will join the governance council.
Klaytn GC is the core subject that is behind Klaytn. There are 30 servers currently under operation, and they are operated by different partners. This means the Klaytn platform system can’t be halted or abused by specific firms. This could help Klaytn keep decentralized.
