Asia-based metaverse and blockchain ecosystem Klaytn Foundation has partnered with OpenSea, a leading marketplace for nonfungible tokens (NFTs), to invest in the Asian NFT market and accelerate growth and adoption. The partnership was announced during NFT.NYC.

NFTs are unique, individually identifiable and traceable digital assets and the key building blocks for the metaverse in Web3. The technology gives individuals true ownership of digital assets, including user-created digital content distributed in the metaverse and digital representation of physical assets in the real world. The partnership includes conferences, ecosystem grants and more to scale the NFT ecosystem, strengthen ties and bring greater visibility to Asian NFT projects worldwide.

“We’re excited to partner with Opensea on this critical step toward our vision of building a blockchain for the metaverse, GameFi and the creator economy,” said David Shin, head of global adoption at Klaytn Foundation. “Through these partnership initiatives, our goal is to draw out innovative use cases and support the growth of the Klaytn ecosystem in Asia.”

Klaytn has forged strong partnerships in Asia with Altava Group in Singapore, East NFT in Thailand, Soramitsu in Japan and Blockchain-based Service Network in China to name a few. 

More initiative details will be released at a later date on Klaytn’s official channels. Visit for the latest news.
