Oasys announced a strategic collaboration with GroundX, an integral part of Korea’s premier mobile giant, Kakao. This move signals Oasys’s intent to integrate GroundX’s Klip Wallet SDK, a digital asset wallet backed by Kakao.
With the new alliance, Oasys plans to broaden its presence in South Korea by inviting developers to integrate Klip and reach a large user base nationwide.
Klip was introduced in 2020, and it is designed to be compatible with KakaoTalk, the dominant messaging app in South Korea. KakaoTalk has an impressive 90% market share and caters to two million dedicated users. One of the standout features of Klip is the easy sign-in via Kakao accounts, which simplifies the crypto experience for enthusiasts.
Dominic Jang, the Director of Business Expansion at Oasys, has expressed his optimism about the partnership with GroundX, a blockchain company within the Kakao Group. Jang firmly believes that this partnership will unlock the full potential of the Oasys network. Through the Klip Wallet SDK integration, Oasys affiliates will have a streamlined avenue to launch their games. Furthermore, Jang views the collaboration with GRID as strengthening bonds with high-profile South Korean enterprises.
Jang’s mention of GRID is essential because it represents a consortium dedicated to Web3 and NFT ventures. GRID boasts a roster of over 130 global companies, with GroundX being a notable member.
Taekeun Kim, Business Chief at GroundX, expressed excitement about partnering with Oasys to expand Klip’s global reach and enhance digital wallets and NFTs.
The recently formed alliance between Klip and Oasys is just the beginning, as they plan to integrate more advanced features. GroundX’s involvement in the Hackathon, jointly organized by Oasys and XPLA during Korea Blockchain Week, highlights the extent of their collaboration. Additionally, Korean startups under GroundX will soon be able to access Oasys’s extensive resources.
