"Our mission is to enable 1 million individuals by 2030 to profit from next-generation solutions facilitated by our toolkit for digital ownership"

Lukas Bronsvoort, CEO Klayr Labs

Who we are

Klayr Labs

We are a Layer 1 blockchain application platform, providing the tools for digital ownership to allow the new generation to build better solutions. In today’s internet, centralized control often leads to unfair practices such as data monopolization, unequal access, and lack of transparency. Here at Klayr Labs, we believe that applying blockchain in the right places can make apps more user-centric.
The new generation isn’t constrained by the disparity between web2 and web3 as we are, but grows up with the awareness of web3’s presence. We aim to aid them in integrating web3 into technology, thereby advancing towards a more transparent and equitable digital environment for all, with the user placed at the forefront.

The team behind the platform

Meet the dynamic team behind Klayr – a group of young and driven blockchain enthusiasts with years of experience in the field. Based in the Netherlands, we bring a wealth of expertise and a strong track record in developing decentralized applications (dApps) and blockchain infrastructure. Our passion for innovation and commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the blockchain space drives everything we do. Join us on our journey to revolutionize digital ownership and empower individuals worldwide.
