The Klaytn Foundation, a key player in South Korea's blockchain space, alongside the Finschia Foundation, operator of LINE Tech Plus's blockchain, have put forth a proposal to merge their blockchains. This initiative is set to establish a new, dominant mainnet in the Asian blockchain sector.

The proposed merger between Klaytn, and Finschia, a blockchain developed by LINE, is a game-changing move for the Asian blockchain industry. Awaiting governance approval, with voting from January 26 to February 2, 2024, the merger aims to establish a technologically advanced blockchain ecosystem, bolstering Asia's position in the global blockchain landscape.

This strategic move will combine Klaytn's robust infrastructure and Finschia's innovative technology, creating an ecosystem with over 250 million digital wallets and more than 420 DApps.

This integration is poised to forge Asia's largest Web3 ecosystem, merging Klaytn's integration with Kakaotalk and Finschia's integration with LINE, enhancing the blockchain experience for millions of users.

Post-merger, the focus will be on expanding the ecosystem in the realms of RWA tokenization, GameFi, and DeFi, leveraging strategic partnerships across Japan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia. The unified foundation will also continue to innovate in messenger-based Web3 services and digital commerce platforms.

A representative from the Klaytn Foundation shared their vision:

"This historic union between Klaytn and Finschia is a strategic step in reshaping the future of Asia's blockchain industry. By combining our strengths, we aim to unlock unprecedented possibilities in blockchain technology and adoption."

The merger will lead to the unification of $KLAY and $FNSA coins into a new native currency. This new currency aims to focus on sustainable value creation with a deflationary approach, reflecting a combined tokenomics model.

Furthermore, the governance structures of Klaytn and Finschia will merge, creating Asia's largest decentralized Web3 governance body. This move enhances the blockchain's interoperability and accessibility, bridging Ethereum and Cosmos builders.


The proposed merger is not just a technological collaboration but a strategic initiative to redefine the blockchain landscape in Asia and beyond. With their combined technology, user base, and innovative vision, Klaytn and Finschia are gearing up to lead the next wave of blockchain innovation and adoption.
