Partnership to advance a multi-chain environment and collaboration with Polkadot

The partnership will see Parity help Klaytn built a multi-chain environment, with the Klaytn-Substrate that comes off the collaboration also serving as a sidechain.

According to David Shin, the head of global adoption at Klaytn Foundation, the partnership is part of the platform’s goal of creating an interoperable blockchain ecosystem for the metaverse.

Klaytn-Substrate will open up new possibilities for dApps to be developed in a multi-chain environment, and to explore collaborative use cases between the Klaytn and Polkadot chains.

Klaytn will use the partnership to bring more enterprises and service providers onto the blockchain, the team said in the announcement.

The Klaytn blockchain launched in 2019, with KLAY (currently priced around $0.46), as the native digital asset. Of the 10 billion KLAY total token supply, 2.84 billion are currently in circulation. The token reached its all-time high of $4.34 in March 2021.
