Hex Trust, Asia’s leading digital asset custodian, has partnered with Klaytn Foundation to provide the scalability and performance required for the mass adoption of digital assets. Following the announcement, customers of Hex Trust including financial institutions, digital asset natives, and HNWIs can now safely custody the Klaytn protocol’s native token KLAY with Hex Safe, the institutional-grade digital assets custody platform.
Klaytn, the blockchain project spearheaded by South Korean Internet giant Kakao, recently announced that the Klaytn Foundation, a non-profit entity headquartered in Singapore, formally officiates its role as the core committee overseeing the scaling of operations and resources for the continued global expansion of the Klaytn blockchain and its ecosystem.
With hopes of building on its mission to drive global growth in the Klaytn ecosystem, the Klaytn Foundation will also accept applications for the Klaytn Growth Fund. The Fund invites developers and users to build applications, developer tools, or lead community-building initiatives to facilitate sustainable growth. Promising candidates can benefit from financial grants and technical consultation. Applications will open on the Klaytn Foundation website in late September.
Klaytn is also strategically partnering with ConsenSys, the leading Ethereum software company, to advance the Klaytn platform’s integrated digital currency efforts in the Bank of Korea’s CBDC pilot this year.
Calvin Shen, Head of Sales and Business Development at Hex Trust said, “supporting the enterprise-grade Klaytn platform with highly-secure, bank-grade and fully compliant custody services strengthens Klaytn’s position to serve institutional blockchain projects in the region which aligns with our own mission and vision for the industry.”
