South Korean Giant Kakao Rolls Out Crypto Wallet App Klip

Klaytn, the blockchain platform developed by South Korean conglomerate Kakao, has just released a crypto wallet

A crypto wallet is a device or app that stores digital assets. Unlike the physical wallet in your back pocket,… More.

The company announced the news via a Medium post published on Wednesday. According to the announcement, the wallet named Klip will support Klaytn’s native token KLAY and ten other Klaytn-based virtual ‘coins’ as well as numerous other non-fungible

ERC721 tokens, (or non-fungible tokens as they are more commonly known), have come a long way since they were first… More tokens (NFT).

Klaytn’s wallet potentially exposes crypto to its over 50 million subscribers who can use their KakaoTalk accounts as human-readable addresses to send and receive cryptocurrencies.

The statement revealed that these transactions would come at no additional cost. The newly created wallet also joins Kakao’s suite of e-payment and e-banking solutions.

As part of the announcement, Klaytn also revealed plans to debut a native mobile app with key management service. The news is rather timely, considering that the South Korean national assembly recently passed clear-cut regulations for the growing industry.

Kakao, like other significant conglomerates in the country, is heavily involved in the crypto and blockchain space. Back in March 2019, the company raised $90 million for the development of the Klaytn blockchain network.

As previously reported by BeInCrypto, Kakao has been searching for a “killer app” that uses blockchain in the financial market.
