Klaytn mainnet launch: The sun will never set on the GET Protocol


“Kakao’s global public blockchain project Klaytn is an enterprise-grade, service-centric platform that brings user-friendly blockchain experience to millions.” — Klaytn.com

To summarize, until further notice, the GET Protocol remains running on the Ethereum blockchain as does its ERC20 token. As we are not rushing the migration process. We will await the Klaytn mainnet to stabilize before making permanent decisions.

Why we are choosing for Klaytn

End users all over the world care more about usability and price of the service they receive. Business ethics and transparency are important, but they generally come second. While this fact can be frustrating, it is important to embrace its merit and deal with this reality.
