Serendale 2.0

In case you haven’t heard the news, DeFi Kingdoms: Serendale is moving to Klaytn!

It’s time for Serendale on Harmony to be retired, and Serendale 2.0 will soon be launching on Klaytn. So why is Klaytn a good home for Serendale?

Klaytn Overview

Klaytn is an open source L1 public blockchain designed and built for tomorrow’s Metaverse

  • Klaytn was built from the ground up to offer enterprise-grade scalability and performance — vital for providing seamless Web3 experience across all user touch points. Utilizing a hybrid governance structure and an optimized PBFT consensus mechanism, Klaytn outputs 4,000 TPS, in conjunction with 1-second block generation times and immediate finality
  • SDK and Open Source APIs specially designed for builders looking to create immersive best-in-class Web3 experiences

The Klaytn Governance Council

  • The Klaytn network is secured by a group of trusted entities — the Klaytn Governance Council — comprised of 34 global conglomerates encompassing both key legacy industries, from Consumer Electronics (LG Electronics), Finance (Kakao Pay) to Gaming (Gumi, Neoply, Netmarble) and Crypto-First players such as Binance, Alameda Research, Jump Crypto, 1inch and Hashed

Korean Dominance, Global Expansion

  • Klaytn’s ecosystem has grown exponentially since the launch of its mainnet — Cypress — back in 2019. There are hundreds of services across all categories; with an estimated user base of 11 million, Klaytn has essentially captured the domestic Korean market in relation to both development and retail interest
  • Klaytn has been aggressively pursuing global expansion, looking to secure partnerships across the entirety of the blockchain “value chain,” from custody and liquidity infrastructure providers to retail-facing DeFi and NFT services

GameFi on Klaytn

  • MARBLEX is global gaming powerhouse Netmarble’s flagship blockchain service. It was developed based on Klaytn’s Service Chain Suite and officially launched on March 17 along with its in-house developed MARBLEX Wallet
  • One stellar example is Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds, a mobile MMORPG based on Level 5 and Studio Ghibli IP. The game has seen massive global success in both sales and popularity
  • There are more games to be released, including the one with more than 200 mil+ global user bases such as Let’s Get Rich: Meta World, Monster Arena, King of Fighters, and more!
  • NX3 /NXIO (Project Avatara) — jointly developed by game studio NX3 of ROHAN M fame and blockchain developer NXIO, Project Avatara is an upcoming blockbuster MMORPG that integrates P2E and NFT mechanisms, and is set to launch in Q3 2022 on Klaytn
