As blockchain technology continues to amass hype and interest, several problems still hinder the growth of this new innovation.
According to a 2022 CoinGecko publication, over 40% of (3,322 out of the 8,000) cryptocurrencies listed in 2021 are dead. Most blockchain-based projects struggle to create and maintain a transparent token supply/demand structure. And coupled with the cost of maintenance and increasing energy consumption levels, these projects have found environmental and physical sustainability to be almost impossible.
Another problem of mass adoption is trust. The recent FTX debacle and preceding events, the Axie Infinity failure, and the Terra/LUNA crash have dispelled trust in blockchain, a system purported to be secure and transparent.
While several “community-powered” projects have launched, a few live up to the claim. The current DAO and governance approach incorporated by most projects means wealthier users can buy more tokens to change voting outcomes, eliminating the concept of decentralization.
These problems are at the forefront of blockchain mass adoption, making it difficult to achieve. Klaytn, an open-source public blockchain for builders, workers, and players in the metaverse, has identified the ultimate trifecta for global blockchain adoption and is working to achieve it with sustainability, verifiability, and collectiveness.
Klaytn Foundation’s Vision for Mass Adoption
As part of its long-term vision to drive global adoption, Klaytn introduces a thoroughly crafted 2023 vision map for achieving the mass adoption trifecta.
The two profound components of a project’s sustainability are—a smart tokenomicsstructure capable of creating inherent value for the ecosystem and a well-grounded tech layer capable of supporting such an ecosystem. In line with these components, Klaytn integrates specific goals.
Klaytn’s sound tokenomics and deflationary token model aspirations are stand-out features of this project. For sustainability, this public blockchain platform will continue to reschedule token releases to maintain relevance and initiate realistic targets for the right amount of tokens needed to make $KLAY a genuinely deflationary asset. It will also support activities that will guarantee mid-to-long-term token demand and supply.
Taking into account the cost of running a blockchain-based ecosystem, Klaytnproposes an efficient specification for computer instances and data storage. This singular action will help the team manage nodes dexterously while reducing costs in the long run. Additionally, Klaytn will introduce new concepts such as permissionless network configurations, ecosystem treasury optimization, and token circulation monitoring that will effectively oversee the supply of new tokens based on specific criteria gathered from incumbent market conditions.
Klaytn will also be on the lookout for infrastructures and services where ownership of $KLAY will guarantee holders access to these features, increasing the utility and transactional value of the token. Through exchange listings and on-chain service offerings, Klaytn hopes to attract more users.
To increase the long-term sustainability of $KLAY, Klaytn will regularly burn a percentage of tokens—over 75 million $KLAY has been burned to date, and more are expected in the coming months. The Klaytn team looks to initially burn 5.28 billion (approximately 48% of the current total $KLAY supply) tokens as it seeks to keep $KLAY inherently valuable.
Trustlessness has proven to be a huge sticking point in the blockchain space. Ensuring verifiability in all situations is essential for improving the transparency of all components related to the operation of a blockchain network.
In the spirit of promoting transparency and inclusivity in its governance processes, Klaytn intends to conduct frequent evaluations of community sentiment and develop a robust structure to facilitate efficient decision-making. KIP-81 will be integrated into Klaytn's mainnet, enabling users to conveniently view voting agendas, and monitor voting statuses and results live via the Klaytn Square governance portal. The Klaytn team also looks to open up access to its Governance Council, creating a process for teams interested in becoming GC members to apply directly.
A robust ecosystem of developers and users is essential to the success of any blockchain network. This community serves as the backbone of the technology, providing the support, innovation, and governance necessary to drive adoption and ensure the security and integrity of the network. Besides enabling seamless onboarding of developers, Klaytn is integrating new measures to encourage active participation and community involvement.
With the aim of providing a hassle-free development environment, Klaytn is set to unveil a suite of ecosystem service tools, including a trustless bridge, developer SDKs that seamlessly integrate with multiple services, and a metaverse package.
As a public blockchain for all, Klaytn promises to be a community-powered project where users and developers are essential members. With that vision in mind, Klaytnwill hold regular developer meet-ups to provide direct communication and feedback channels with the Klaytn core development team. As it seeks to build on the spirit of collectivism, Klaytn also looks to establish “Proof of Hodl” communication touchpoints on its governance portal Klaytn Square, providing participants who contribute directly to the Klaytn ecosystem with opportunities to participate in governance and more.
Through its meticulously-crafted vision map, Klaytn aims to achieve the trifecta of mass adoption —sustainability, verifiability, and collectiveness—taking a giant step towards driving global adoption and rekindling users’ trust in blockchain projects.
