Klaytn Blockchain Is 15x Faster Than Ethereum, Kakao Says

Kakao's recently launched Klaytn blockchain network via GroundX takes pride in its fast block mining time, which is one-fifteenth of Ethereum's record.

South Korea’s leading messaging platform provider Kakao said Tuesday that its Klaytn blockchain network beats Ethereum in terms of block mining speed by up to 15 times.

According to The Korea Herald report, Kakao’s blockchain subsidiary GroundX has claimed that Klaytn’s block mining time completes in one second and achieves 300 transactions per second. Ethereum, on the other hand, takes 15 seconds to mine a block, resulting in only 20 TPS.

Han Jae-sun, CEO of GroundX, said:

“I believe it would be the initial version of a mobile (blockchain) service. With the reduced response time, many projects that we believed unfathomable could eventually come true.”

GroundX launched last June 27 the Klaytn mainnet — called Cypress — and named companies that will run on its network, based on a report. Some of them are South Korean players LG, Celltrion, and Netmarble. Southeast Asian companies like Union Bank of the Philippines have also joined the project.

The CEO also purportedly said:

“The launch paves the way for commercialization of the blockchain system. By working with such valuable and responsible companies I expect we can improve the platform’s stability and reliability. In order to create a better ecosystem, we will increase the number of partners.”

Meanwhile, Y Combinator-backed blockchain security company Quantstamp has completed the audit of smart contracts for Klaytn believes Kakao’s blockchain network will succeed in bringing blockchain closer to its 40 million monthly active users.
