The proposal aims to create Asia’s leading blockchain network based on superior blockchain technology, services, and business acumen. The proposal was submitted and voted on by each chain’s governance members, with 95% from Finschia and 90% from Klaytn voting in favour, passing the joint proposal. The merged network will have approximately 420 DApps and more than 45 governance member partners, spurring the popularization of Web3 as Asia’s largest blockchain ecosystem.

Following the passage of the proposal, the two foundations will set up a joint task force to merge the two chains and establish an integrated foundation in Abu Dhabi by the second quarter of this year. To operate the foundation efficiently, the foundation will adopt a single governance system with previous operating teams transferred to an integrated foundation. In addition, Finschia and Klaytn foundations will jointly operate the board with the same number of directors from each foundation.

Leveraging on the technological expertise of both Klaytn and Finschia Foundations, the development plan for the new merged blockchain will include greater decentralization as well as support for both EVM and CosmWasm. KLAY and FNSA, the native coins of the two blockchains, will also be replaced by a new native coin with all-new tokenomics. To increase the transparency of operations, the merged chain will also increase the governance delegation and participation from the community as well. 

Additionally, the foundation plans to work on new business initiatives such as infrastructure development to enhance accessibility for institutional investors, cooperating with diverse partners, and launching native stable coins to drive innovation in Asia’s blockchain industry.

“There was no one blockchain network that represented the Asian market, and the level of community participation had much to be desired,” said Youngsu Ko, Chairman of the Finschia Foundation Council. “We plan to build Asia’s largest blockchain ecosystem with the diverse opinions from our partners and community that we gathered during the merger proposal process.”

“In the process of fine-tuning the merge proposal, we have seen how much positive change can be made through sincere communication with ecosystem participants, including the holder community and governance council members,” said Sam Seo, Representative Director at Klaytn Foundation. “As we emphasized during the proposal process, together we will build Asia’s best blockchain ecosystem that will create greater future value.”

Details on the merge proposal can be found on the Klaytn Foundation governance forum. (
