ICON signs a strategic part...

Greetings from the ICON Team,The ICON Foundation is happy to announce its strategic partnership with ‘MixMarvel,’ a blockchain-based global game publishing company.MixMarvel, which newly joined as ICON’s DApp (Decentralized Application) partner, aims to connect game content creators with players with the goal of building a game community filled with voluntary participation. With its proprietary game series including ‘HyperDragons’ and ‘HyperSnakes,’ MixMarvel is the world’s first large-scale strategy blockchain game publisher more than 6,000 DAU. MixMarvel plans to release its blockchain-based gaming platform MixMarvel Platform in 2Q 2019.With this partnership, MixMarvel will support ICON’s blockchain ecosystem expansion upon 3 core pillars: integrating its game platform to ICON’s public blockchain network, applying as a P-Rep candidate, and participating in the ICX Station program. MixMarvel plans to complete integration of the ICON Platform to Rocket Protocol, the layer 2 solution for blockchain games, as well as MixMarvel SDK, a toolkit for the developer community to build on Rocket Protocol, within 4Q 2019. Its strategy is to support not only the production of new blockchain games but also the introduction of blockchain technology into existing online and mobile game industry series, reducing the entry barriers.Additionally, MixMarvel has completed the pre-registration for ICON Public Representative (P-Rep) candidacy. Twenty two P-Reps elected via an on-chain election in upcoming September will have the distributed responsibility of preserving the ICON Network, producing and verifying blocks, validating transactions, and proposing and voting on network policy changes.ICON will offer MixMarvel a wide variety of consulting services, including but not limited to, business planning, technology development, and game publishing through its global accelerating program called ‘ICX Station.’ ICON is the only blockchain project in Korea with a global accelerator program. The ICX Station has locations in Seoul, San Francisco, Singapore, and Tokyo. Deblock currently serves as ICX Station’s Seoul Launchpad, bringing its local DApp projects into the global market.Jonghyup Kim, Council Member of the ICON Foundation, said, “game entertainment, combined with blockchain technology, will be the most suitable and casual form for owning and trading tokenized digital assets. ICON, in cooperation with MixMarvel and its large-scale users, will achieve mass adoption of blockchain technology by providing services that can be easily accessed in real life.”Jade Zhang, CEO of MixMarvel, said, “the transaction processing speed is crucial for developing and operating blockchain games, which will eventually be combined with new technologies such as 3D, VR (Virtual reality), and AR (Augmented Reality). By utilizing high TPS (Transaction Per Second) and developer toolkits of the ICON platform, MixMarvel will support anyone looking to create value from game contents.”Want to join a transaction challenge based on ICON public blockchain?Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/hello_iconworldTelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICON signs a strategic partnership with MixMarvel, a blockchain-based global game publisher was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Updates to IISS

Greetings from the ICON Team,We have continued to refine the governance and incentive structure of the ICON Network outlined in the yellow paper published last December. After consideration of possible attack vectors, P-Rep responsibilities, and incentive alignment we have made several enhancements to the original design. A high-level overview of the updates can be found below, followed by the granular details in a bulleted list. Additionally, we share a few more details on the Pre-Voting period beginning in August.IISS Update OverviewThe update includes limitations on the power of P-Reps, as we felt the initial design gave P-Reps too much authority. Rewards received by DApps (i_dapp), EEPs (i_eep) and rewards received by voting ICONists (r_eep, r_dapp, and r_rep) are no longer decided by P-Reps. None of these updates will affect the expected annual issuance amount. We also added a variable un-staking period based on the percentage of the network staked.Additional Details■ Delegation Annual Reward Rate for Voters: It is now a function of the percentage of the network delegated.Even if the DBP and EEP processes are not developed upon the launch of delegation, ICONists will still receive r_eep and r_dapp for voting for a P-Rep.■ Un-staking period: The un-staking period will also be a function of the percentage of the network staked■ Price (P) variable has been removed. All variables will be entered in terms of ICX■ Maximum Issuance Rate: This has been changed from 15% to 20% based on stress-test scenarios to ensure security and aligned incentives given extreme market conditions.■ i_eep & i_dapp: Hard-coded as 25% of i_rep■ Minimum i_rep: Hard-coded as 10,000 ICXPre-Voting Period Details (August 2019)■ The ICON Foundation has decided on a pool of ~3 million ICX to be released during the course of the pre-voting period in August■ Based on a 30% delegation rate assumption, the average ICONist can expect a 15.81% (5.27% * 3) annualized reward during the pre-voting periodThe ICON Team will continue to make updates leading up to Pre-Voting in August. A few items still under consideration include the details of the penalty system, the process for submitting and approving an EEP, and the process for approving a DApp to be a part of the DBP. We look forward to sharing more details with the community once finalized.Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/hello_iconworldTelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationUpdates to IISS was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The ‘Without Doubt’ project team joined ICON through a student internship program upon ‘Cultivating Innovative Youth Talents 2018’ project. Previously in 2018, ICONLOOP was selected to participate in the government-sponsored public project supervised by the Korea Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) and Korea Institute for Information & communications Technology Promotion (IITP). And as a part of the initiative, ICONLOOP offered a 1,000 hours of intensive curriculum for students including the ‘Without Doubt’ project team, majoring in information security and multimedia education at Baekseok University.We interviewed Leeyop Jeong, Taeyang Lee, Seungjae Lyu, and Jungho Lee of the ‘Without Doubt’ project team after a 1,000 hours of intensive effort.‘Without Doubt’ project team members, Leeyop Jeong, Taeyang Lee, Seungjae Lyu, Jungho Lee from the leftQ. Please introduce yourselves and tell us why you became interested in blockchain.-Leeyop Jeong: I manage the backend and web server. I first encountered blockchain technology at college as an assignment and was fascinated by the technology’s potential, leading me to join the ‘Cultivating Innovative Youth Talents 2018’.-Taeyang Lee: I’m a front-end developer. I gained a strong interest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies during the Bitcoin hype in 2017.-Seungjae Lyu: I’m in charge of web crawling and SDK connection with ‘SCORE(Smart Contract on Reliable Environment) for the ICON’s smart contract environment.’ Having a huge interest in security solutions led me to encounter bitcoin in 2014, which was naturally followed by a big interest in its underlying technology; blockchain.-Jungho Lee (Team Leader): I’m in charge of connecting ‘SCORE’ SDKs with Lyu and web crawling. Also, as a team leader, I’m in charge of the overall project management and service planning.Q. Could you please introduce the ‘Without Doubt’ project?-Jungho Lee: As can be inferred from its name, the ‘Without Doubt’ project provides the real-time ranking data of search items from search engines like Google and Naver with transparency ‘without a doubt’. The project utilizes the ICON public block network and ICON tracker to accentuate the benefits of blockchain technology.*ICON Tracker: a block explorer for ICON that displays all transaction records on the network to enhance transparency and credibility.>> Browse all transactions from the ‘Without Doubt’ project in the ICON Tracker‘Without Doubt’ website UI (1)Q. I’m curious about the purpose of connecting real-time search records with ICON Tracker.-Jungho Lee: Whether true or not, the possibility of data manipulation on search engines commonly used in our daily lives has been a constant issue. The ‘Without Doubt’ service was planned to provide all data without filtration by utilizing the non-volatility and irreversibility factors of blockchain technology. Although the service cannot prevent the act of manipulation directly, we expect to indirectly prevent the possibility of manipulation.-Taeyang Lee: During the service planning, ‘Seoul Metropolitan Government’s appointment letters for its Blockchain Governance Team’ served as a useful reference. All data related to letter of appointment issuance records is stored on the ICON public blockchain, making falsification and fake issuance impossible. Authenticity of the record can be also verified on the ICON Tracker by searching for a specific transaction.Q. Please tell us about the characteristics of the service provided by your team.-Seungjae Lyu: ‘Without Doubt’ service has three main characteristics.1) Records real-time search items ranking data at regular intervals with continuous web crawling2) Stores the data in real-time and permanently in the ICON public blockchain3) Provides a browsing system that allows users to view the rankings history at a specified time-Leeyop Jeong: With the timestamping feature, reporters or bloggers seeking correct information are likely to be our main target users.‘Without Doubt’ website UI (2)Q. Were there any difficulties while developing the service?-Jungho Lee: 1,000 hours literally flew by. It took a week for research and planning, and three weeks for development, TestNet uploading, and code audits. We had to learn development languages while focusing on creating the basic prototype at the same time.-Seungjae Lyu: As there is no API support that provides all real-time search items for a specified time period, we had to utilize a bypass crawling tool instead. Additionally, since we tried crawling in a ‘while’ sentence in the development language, the data collection period was somewhat inconsistent at first. However, we were able to solve the problem with some developer mentors’ insight.Q. How was your first encounter with the ICON development environment?-Jungho Lee: I was most surprised to find that there are plenty of ‘well-organized’ development materials. It was also beneficial to have senior developers to whom I could easily approach for feedback when faced with difficulties during problem-solving.-Taeyang Lee: I agree. I hope ICON’s developer portal, the Developer Relations team’s Facebook page, and YouTube channel would gain more popularity among the blockchain developers!-Leeyop Jeong: I really enjoyed the atmosphere that encouraged the sharing of ideas freely. And of course, the cafe-like lounge with unlimited coffee as well!-Seungjae Lyu: Thanks to ‘T-Bears,’ ICON’s smart contract toolkit for developers, I could learn all the basics of Python and SCORE quickly. Also, it was easy to integrate the wallet and develop a website by using the JavaScript SDK.Q. Do you have any future plans for the project?-Taeyang Lee: We plan to have regular meetings to steadily improve the project output. For example, from the UI perspective, we will add graphs that can easily identify trends or the overall ups-and-downs of the top 20 keywords of a specific date.-Leeyop Jeong: If there is a sudden disappearance from the actual search records, I think adding a tag can help us to obtain additional insights about the issue. Adding to this, one of our future goals is to offer rankings history for various categories such as music or films, in line with the, ‘Top 10 — -’ culture prevalent in our modern society.Want to join a transaction challenge based on ICON public blockchain?Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/hello_iconworldTelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundation#1.

#4. ICON Development Roadma...

#4. ICON Development Roadmap Update — Apr 2019Greetings from the ICON Team,It is the last day of April, and it already looks like early summer! The ICON Team has continued to work hard in April following the first quarter and will share the development status updates we have focused on. Please see our recent achievements and plans below.P-Rep TestNetIn May, P-Rep candidates and those who want to sign up can set up ICON nodes in advance and operate blockchain testnets. P-Rep candidates can prepare for stable network operation by pre-emptively installing ICON nodes and configuring networks before the election of P-Reps in the third quarter.>>> Check out the recent notice on the Updated News of P-Rep TestNet>>> Check out the P-Rep TestNet Application FormInterchainThe Interchain Development Team is in the process of commercialization after the design and POC verification of the BTP protocol for interconnecting private chains with public chains. Through the Merkle Proof and Validator verification in heterogeneous chains, the risks of Oracle’s falsification and fakes have been solved. This opens the way for enterprise chains to work with ICON’s public blockchain. The ICON Team will also provide an environment in which tokens and data published in the internal private chains of companies can also be distributed on to ICON’s public blockchain.DEXDEX implementation is complete and ready to be published on the ICON GitHub. The ICON Team will guide anyone on running the DEX service through the sources and guidelines published on our GitHub. Please feel free to contact the ICON Team if you want to operate the DEX service.Fee 2.0The development of a feature that allows DApp providers and service users to control or avoid paying fees is nearly complete and in the QA phase. If the QA is completed quickly, it will be launched in May, but may be launched in June if an additional stabilization period is required. By using Fee 2.0, DApp providers can have service users to avoid paying fees or have them pay fees with Virtual Step* generated through staking instead of the actual ICX.(*Virtual step is a system to mitigate the burden of transaction fees. SCORE operators can receive and utilize Virtual Step by agreeing to deposit a certain amount of ICX for a given period of time.)Stable TokenThe ICON Team is working on a project to issue Fiat money as IRC2 (ICON mainnet-based tokens) with a strategic partner. ‘Stable token’ will be ‘pegged’ to the value of Fiat money and used as a ‘price-stable token’ like Tether (USDT). Within the first half of the year, the Stable Token Issuance Service will be opened and you will be able to trade Stable tokens on the exchanges that we are currently under negotiations with.ICON DPASS (DID)‘ICON DPASS,’ a new decentralized identity service, will be released in May. Users will be able to keep their personal information in the DPASS app (iOS and Android) and access multiple existing services and apps without repeating authentication procedures (KYC).Blockchain based CertificationThe ICON Team plans to provide a service to issue various certificates based on the ICON blockchain in June. This service is in the same form as Seoul Blockchain Governance Team’s mobile letter of appointment that is created using ICON’s public blockchain and will be provided as an open service. By issuing certificates on blockchain, permanent archiving is possible without issuing paper documents and allows for certificates to be easily issued, viewed, and verified anywhere via mobile.The ICON Development Team will continue to sprint in accordance with the planned milestone in May. We are striving to ensure that our outputs are not just blockchain technologies, but services that give users and companies values that they have never before experienced before. We are also organizing and packaging ICON’s blockchain technologies into the ICON BaaS Platform to make it easier for companies to adopt these technologies. Please look forward to them!-ICON Development TeamICON Development Roadmap Update — Apr 2019 (>> Detailed ICON Development Roadmap)<Governance>Transaction Fee- Fee sharing between DApp providers and users (In development → Stabilization): Share transaction fees between DApp providers and users- Virtual Step (In development → Stabilization): Support fee payment in Virtual Step by staking ICX<Services based on ICON>DID- Alpha version of DID Smart Contract (Stabilization → Complete): Manage ID certifications from diverse issuers- Launch DID feature in ICONex wallet (In development → Stabilization): DID feature integrated in ICONex walletVault- Alpha version of Smart Contract for key management (Stabilization → Complete): Support management and restorage of keys through Vault- Launch Vault feature in ICONex wallet (In development → Stabilization): Decentralized key management feature integrated in ICONex walletDEX- DEX service for IRC token transactions (In development → Stabilization): Support IRC token transactions for IRC holders through DEX serviceStable Coin- Launch a service based on Stable Coin (In research → In development): Launch a service based on Stable Coin with a business partnerThank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/hello_iconworldTelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundation#4.

ICON cooperates with VELIC ...

Greetings from the ICON Team,The ICON Foundation is happy to announce its partnership with VELIC, a cryptocurrency exchange that participated in the ICX Station accelerator program, in listing opportunities for projects working with ICX Station. With this partnership, VELIC will support the listing of ICON DApps (decentralized applications) on its exchange.With VELIC as a listing partner, ICX Station will be able to provide projects coming through the program with an avenue to liquidity. VELIC will support the IRC2 standard, thus lowering roadblocks for any ICON based token project seeking liquidity.VELIC will go through their own due diligence process for each project interested in listing its tokens on VELIC’s platform. After passing through VELIC’s internal committee, VELIC can offer fundraising support with various promotions through IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings), IAOs (Initial Auction Offerings), and consulting.ICON signed a strategic partnership with VELIC last January, cooperating to establish a blockchain-based financial ecosystem offering financial services on a large-scale. VELIC is a financial DApp based on the ICON MainNet, with the tokens that power VELIC’s internal token economy being built on ICON using the IRC2 standard, and provides comprehensive digital asset platform services in an all-in-one format. With its exchange launch this month, VELIC has also developed its own unique IAO token sale platform. It will introduce asset management services such as digital vaults with specialized security solutions, as well as loan and investment products.Jonghyup Kim, Council Member of the ICON Foundation, said, “In order to vitalize the DApp ecosystem, securing a distribution channel for cryptocurrencies is crucial. ICON, through the cooperation with VELIC, will increase user accessibility for high-quality blockchain projects and accelerate the expansion of blockchain ecosystem.”Timothy Yang, the Chief Strategy Officer of VELIC, said, “We look forward to discovering more diverse blockchain projects through cooperation with ICON. As the financial backbone of ICON’s ecosystem, VELIC will assist high-quality projects with their token issuance, fundraising, listing as well as long-term corporate finance and asset management services so as to increase demand for ICON DApps and to contribute to the expansion of ICON’s ecosystem.”Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/hello_iconworldTelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICON cooperates with VELIC as a listing partner for ICX Station was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

ICONSENSUS: P-Rep Election ...

ICONSENSUS: P-Rep Election Campaign Updates — P-Rep TestNet & Pre-votingGreetings from the ICON Team,<ICONSENSUS>, the consensus between ICONists to achieve full decentralization of the ICON Network, is on track. The P-Rep election, which is the most significant turning point in the ICON Network’s history, will be set to take place in September, and a total of 10 P-Rep candidates have applied so far in the keen interest of all the ICONists. To evolve the ICON Network into a fully autonomous decentralized network, the ICON Foundation announces two major updates.1. ICON TestNet Opens for P-Rep CandidatesAt the end of April, ‘TestNet for P-Reps’ will be open for P-Rep candidates to experience their roles in block production and verification in advance. The TestNet operation policy will be guided through ‘ICON P-Reps,’ a private Telegram channel dedicated to P-Rep candidates. Each candidate will have access to the ICON TestNet under the support of the ICON Foundation. For more information on how to join ‘ICON P-Reps’ Telegram channel, please visit ICON.community (https://t.me/iconcm).Before September comes, every P-Rep candidate will be able to check their resources in advance by installing the ICON Network’s software and running their own servers. The data collected during the period will be utilized for the decentralized ICON MainNet, and further announcements will be updated in real time via the ‘ICON P-Reps’ telegram channel and GitHub at the end of April.2. P-Rep Pre-voting, the start of P-Rep On-chain Registration & VotingIn early August, the ICON Foundation will start offering ‘P-Rep Pre-voting’ for all ICONists to experience what it is like to vote for a P-Rep candidate.P-Rep Pre-voting, which will take place in early August, allows all ICONists to stake ICX and delegate authority using the ICONex wallet. Additionally, all P-Rep candidates will be able to register their information on the ICON Network in advance and start their marketing campaign.Key points and brief rules on ‘P-Rep Pre-voting’ are as follows:* All P-Rep candidates can register their candidate information on-chain.* All ICONists may delegate their stake to any registered P-Rep candidates.* Even if a P-Rep candidate is delegated with the stake, the candidate is still not elected as the actual P-Rep, and the real decentralization will start September 2019.* P-Rep candidates that receive votes will not receive any block rewards during this period. Rewards during this period are only for voters.* All ICONists who have participated in P-Rep Pre-voting will be rewarded for their delegation of stake. The reward will come from the ICX held by the ICON Foundation.More details will be revealed before August when the ’P-Rep Pre-voting’ begins, so please stay tuned to ICONSENSUS!Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICONSENSUS: P-Rep Election Campaign Updates — P-Rep TestNet & Pre-voting was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

ICON 1Q Achievements

Greetings from the ICON Team,The first quarter of 2019 has passed and April is here. The ICON team strengthened governance, technology and capabilities of the ICON project in the 4th quarter of last year, and in 2019 we will be building upon such achievements.In this quarterly report we will be looking back at our achievements in the first quarter of 2019.Key performances in the First Quarter of 2019lCONSENSUS<ICONSENSUS>, the journey toward mass adoption of blockchain, has started. Pre-registration for ICON P-Rep candidacy, the first milestone of ICONSENSUS, started in January. As of March 22nd, ten candidates from all over the world have already submitted their applications.The ICON team is developing features for the election of P-Reps. Particularly, features related to IISS (ICON Incentives Scoring System) are being developed for ICX holders to be able to receive I-Score as an incentive by staking their ICX and voting for registered P-Rep candidates.The ‘ICONSENSUS: P-Rep Election Q&A’ video was recently released for those curious about the election campaign. It contains information about the election process, candidacy qualifications, and rewards for elected P-Reps. More information about the P-Rep election is available in other ICON community channels. You can submit your application, look at the list of existing candidates, and learn more about ICONSENSUS at the icon.community website. For up to date news, you can also join our telegram or follow us on twitter.loopchain Use-casesICON public blockchain has been used to issue mobile letters of appointment to the Blockchain Governance Team of the Seoul Metropolitan Government as the first step in leveraging public blockchain system for administration services in government and institutions. Seoul Metropolitan Government has organized the ‘Seoul Blockchain Governance Team,’ aiming to provide blockchain administration services across several industries. The issuance records of the letter of appointment, developed by ICONLOOP, are stored on the ICON public blockchain, making falsification and fake issuance impossible. The ICON team will continue to explore use-cases of blockchain technology with partners in a wide range of fields, aiming to increase use-cases of public blockchain led by city governments.The ICON team has taken initiatives to apply blockchain to the concept of a Smart Sustainable City as an avenue to mass adoption of blockchain technology. As the first step, ICONLOOP participated in the ‘2019 World Smart Sustainable Cities Organization (WeGO) Business Information Session’ as a partner of WeGO. ICONLOOP has sponsored and participated in ‘Blockchain Innovations in Public Services’ led by Hankyung.com and was the only private entity to participate. In this event, Hangjin Kim, the Director of Business Development at ICONLOOP, introduced how to utilize blockchain as an infrastructure technology for leading a fourth industrial revolution and building smart cities. Like the use-cases of loopchain, the core blockchain technology behind the ICON Network powered by ICONLOOP, there are numerous areas where blockchain technology could contribute to smart cities. Some examples are: Citizen ID, voting systems, disease prediction services, customs clearance, and used car trading. Our plan is to link public blockchain and private blockchain through Smart City initiatives.EcosystemICON has been accelerating the expansion of the public blockchain ecosystem. In addition to ICX Station, a global accelerator program sponsored by ICON, ICON has recently established ‘ICON LAP100’, which is an enterprise blockchain alliance program focused on ICON public blockchain uses-cases for corporates. Through ‘ICON LAP 100’, ICON pursues DApp partners focused on both B2C and B2B products. ICON has also hosted <Dive into ICON>, a developer workshop teaching developers how to build a DApp on ICON. <Dive into ICON> was held three times in Q1 2019 and will continue into Q2.MOU / PartnershipICON has sponsored Deblock Japan in order to grow ICON’s presence in Japan. ICON is the only blockchain project in Korea with a global accelerator program, ICX Station, with locations in Seoul, San Francisco, Singapore, and Tokyo. Deblock Japan will operate the Tokyo Launchpad of ICX Station to source, fund and incubate diverse blockchain projects in Japan.The ICON team has expanded the ICON ecosystem to Singapore as well. Last December, ICON partnered with “Tribe Accelerator” which is the first blockchain accelerator blessed by Enterprise Singapore, a Singapore government agency focused on the development of small and medium enterprises. Additionally, ICON participated in ‘Seoul Immersive Blockchain’ led by official educational institutions of the Singaporean government as a featured host in January. TRIBE has recently announced its partnership with BMW Group Asia, Intel, and Nielsen. Accordingly, ICON expects TRIBE to have a growing influence on expanding the ICON ecosystem in Singapore as an ICX Station Launchpad.DevelopmentThe ICON team has been updating the development roadmap on the last day of every month since January. (Jan / Feb / Mar) In the first quarter, ICON released IRC16, a newly added token standard based on ICON’s public blockchain network for 3rd-party entrepreneurs interested in developing and commercializing blockchain-based assets and securities. The ICON development team has moved to develop more service-level projects for end users. DEX (Decentralized Exchange) and DID (Decentralized Identifier) called ‘DPSS’ will be released in the upcoming quarter.Additionally, ICON has opened ICON-HackerOne Bounty Program, the private bounty program operated from the last November, to the public to accelerate the stability and security of the ICON Network. The ICON team is working on establishing a safe blockchain network. Moreover, we continue to reflect the opinion of the community in order to improve the ICON project. In an effort to better know our community, we have released this survey and would certainly appreciate your participation!EventsThe ICON team has sponsored and participated in several blockchain seminars, briefing sessions, and programs. ICON had an opportunity to position itself in Singapore through participating in ‘Seoul Immersive Blockchain’, led by official educational institutions of the Singaporean government such as SkillsFuture Singapore, as a featured host. ICON sponsored ‘Blockchain Innovations in Public Services’ led by Korea Economic Daily. Moreover, ICON sponsored a briefing session for constructing the ‘Jeju Blockchain Regulatory Sandbox’ observed by the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province of South Korea. Through this event, ICON took a role in making a great first step toward the creation of regulatory special zones and bridging the gap between government and private companies.The ICON team is excited to share our achievements in the first quarter of 2019. We are always grateful for your support.Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICON 1Q Achievements was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

#3. ICON Development Roadma...

#3. ICON Development Roadmap Update — Mar 2019Greetings from the ICON Team,Spring has come, and we are now facing the last day of March. The ICON Team has been sharing regular development status updates at the end of each month and today will be no different. Please see our recent achievements and plans below!IISS (ICON Incentives Scoring System)Before the election of P-Reps in September, ICONists will be able to obtain I-Score starting in the third quarter through staking & delegating to P-Reps. ICX holders will receive I-Score as an incentive by staking their ICX and voting to delegate authority to registered P-Rep candidates. During this pre-voting period, however, the nodes themselves will still be operated by the ICON Foundation. I-Score accumulated throughout the delegation period can be exchanged for ICX whenever the ICX holders want. The ICX rewards will come from the ICON Foundation’s existing treasury, not from the creation of new ICX. When decentralization occurs in September, ICX rewards will come from newly created ICX, not the ICON Foundation existing treasury.Transaction Fee SystemThere are two major updates to the transaction fee system. The fee sharing feature, allowing DApp providers (instead of users) to pay the transaction fee, and fee payment using Virtual Step, which is obtained through staking (different type of staking than IISS), are both entering the stabilization phase. These features will undergo a stabilization period starting in April and will likely be released during the second quarter.DEX (Decentralized Exchange)The ICON Team is currently working on integrating the DEX SCORE with ICON’s wallet service, ICONex. ICON’s DEX will provide liquidity between ICX and IRC tokens based on reserves without any need for a bid-and-offer style order book. This functions similarly to Kyber Network and Bancor. With the release of the ICON public network-based DEX, ICON DApps’ IRC tokens that are not yet listed on exchanges will still be able to be traded through ICONex.DID (Decentralized Identifier)ICON’s DID will be released in May and will be called ‘DPASS,’ a new decentralized identity service available to all users. Users will be able to get access to multiple existing services and apps with just one authentication procedure (KYC) without repeating the registration process.Enhancement in Mobile AccessibilityMost DApps hardly work on mobile devices. The importance of mobile integration has become apparent over the last few years, and we realize the necessity of mobile support to further the adoption of blockchain technology. The ICON Team plans to enhance DApps’ mobile accessibility using two methods. First, we will update Mobile ICON Connect to support the integration of mobile apps with ICONex and the ability to call SCORE functions through the app. Secondly, we are preparing the interface for mobile web browsing to communicate with ICONex via relayers to call SCORE.The ICON development team has moved one step further in the development of the core blockchain platform, and through a recent reorganization, we are more actively pursuing service-level projects for end users. We have been organizing teams dedicated to creating more user-friendly services on top of the ICON platform. We look forward to sharing our new project releases!-ICON Development TeamICON Development Roadmap update — Mar 2019 (>> Detailed ICON Development Roadmap)<Services based on ICON>DID- Launch DID feature in ICONex Wallet (In research -> In development): DID feature integrated in ICONexVault- Launch Vault feature in ICONex Wallet (In research -> In development): Decentralized key management feature integrated in ICONex walletThank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicF.A.Q Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundation#3.

ICON adds a token specifica...

ICON’s new token standard, IRC16, aims to simplify the process of creating blockchain-based securities and tokenized assetsGreetings from the ICON Team,March 8th, 2019, Seoul — ICON has released its own token specifications for 3rd-party market players interested in developing and commercializing blockchain-based assets and securities.IRC16, a newly added token standard based on ICON’s public blockchain network, is designed to allow transparent issuance of tokenized assets and securities. Also, it supports simple tokenization of various physical assets through a modular architecture for built-in compliance with legal regulations related to asset ownership and transactions. Tokenization of real assets, which divides, proves ownership, and allows for the sale of physical assets into smaller ‘token’ units, is expected to increase the liquidity of high-value assets and expand the size of existing investor pools over the long term.Additionally, smart contracts act as intermediaries guaranteeing the settlement of asset trading between sellers and buyers, thereby simplifying the transaction process and minimizing brokerage fees. The process of reviewing and signing contracts in the existing offline environment is instead handled online through smart contracts.Focusing on regulatory compliance, ICON’s IRC16 features four functions: Check for Token Transfer, Token Control by Operator, Document Management, and Partition.As the legitimacy of issuing tokenized assets and securities is especially emphasized, ‘Check for Token Transfer’ function provides an interface that verifies whether token senders and recipients passed know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) procedures, and limits the number of investors that can initiate and receive token transfers. This feature also provides the reason for failure if the token transfer fails.‘Token Control by Operator’ supports compliance with regulations regarding fraud or the loss of personal encryption (private) keys. ‘Document Management’ stores and manages relevant legal documents to ensure that the rights and obligations of token issuers and investors are observed. ‘Partition’ allows for partially fungible tokens, which allow issuers to attach metadata, including lock-up periods, to be built into a certain portion of the tokens. .Meanwhile, the ICON project’s development roadmap, including IRC16 specification updates, can be browsed on the website (https://icon.foundation), while the IRC16 source code can be found on its Github page (https://github.com/icon-project/IIPs).Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicQ&A : hello@icon.foundationICON adds a token specification to support the development of tokenized securities was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The purpose was to create a bridge between governments and companies pushing the growth of the domestic blockchain industryYoungsoo Han, the Section Chief of the Jeju Future Strategy DepartmentGreetings from the ICON Team,ICON sponsored a briefing session for constructing the ‘Jeju Blockchain Regulatory Sandbox’ with many private companies in attendance in Seoul.The event was observed by the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province of South Korea, and was a well-attended second meeting following the initial session on the 20th. Heeseop Roh, the Director of the Jeju Future Strategy Department, and Youngsoo Han, the Section Chief of the Jeju Future Strategy Department introduced their plans for the “Regulatory Sandbox for Regional Innovation and Growth,” which will be implemented in April.ICON, based on its presence in the Korean blockchain industry and its strong relationship with Jeju, has prepared this presentation in an effort to improve understanding of the blockchain special zone and increase Public-Private cooperation. More than 60 participants from 30 blockchain companies, including ICONLOOP, Deblock (Seoul Launchpad of ICX Station), ICON DApp partners including ‘Airbloc,’ ‘Cosmochain,’ ‘Webloc’, ‘SOMESING,’ ‘STAYGE,’ and ‘VELIC’, joined the briefing session.Heeseop Roh, the Director of the Jeju Future Strategy DepartmentLocal governments, such as Jeju and Busan, are moving forward with becoming designated as blockchain special zones according to the ‘Act on Special Economic Zones for specialized regional development’, which will be implemented in April. Jeju aims to push for three special zones: blockchain, electric vehicles, and cosmetics, and blockchain is the first priority. Jeju plans to apply for the special zone designation when the Districts Act is enacted, and currently handles interest and inquiries through its dedicated website. If Jeju applies for a blockchain special zone, the special zone will be selected after a final review by the Special Economic Zone Commission on Regulatory Freedom presided over by the Prime Minister in July.Following the local government’s application and approval from the Ministry of SMEs and Startups, companies can utilize three types of regulatory special circumstances (regulatory verification, temporary demonstration, temporary approval), as well as financial support, tax support and reduction of levies. ‘Regulatory verification’ will remove legal grey areas and create a simple system to verify whether or not a project can be authorized, ‘temporary demonstration’ allows testing of an idea prior to specific regulation, and ‘temporary approval’ allows for the creation of a market, under certain conditions, prior to the adoption of specific regulation. With these three regulatory exceptions in place, the blockchain industry in South Korea will have the freedom the thrive and innovate in a safe environment.ICON hopes this event will be a great first step toward the creation of regulatory special zones and will continue to bridge the gap between government and private companies to further push the adoption of blockchain technology.Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicQ&A : hello@icon.foundationICON & Jeju held a briefing session for constructing the ‘Jeju Blockchain Regulatory Sandbox’ was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Seoul Metropolitan Governme...

Seoul Metropolitan Government appoints members of its ‘Blockchain Governance Team’ Using ICON’s Public BlockchainSupports issuance and browsing through mobile phones, preventing falsification and fake issuance by recording history on the blockchainMobile letters of appointment based on the ICON public blockchainGreetings from the ICON Team,The Seoul Metropolitan Government issued mobile letters of appointment to its Blockchain Governance Team using ICON’s public blockchain. Government and supporting agencies are expected to take the first step in leveraging both public and private blockchain systems.ICONLOOP developed mobile letters of appointment for the Seoul Blockchain Governance Team. The letter can be issued and viewed through a Governance Team member’s personal cell phone. A Governance Team member can issue a letter of appointment with a name, member identification number and membership terms after accepting the terms and conditions. Letter of appointment issuance records are stored on the ICON public blockchain, making falsification and fake issuance impossible. Authenticity of the record can be verified in the ICON Tracker by searching for a specific transaction.>> Test history of ‘mobile letter of appointment for the Seoul Blockchain Governance Team’According to ‘Plans for Blockchain City Seoul’ announced last October, Seoul Metropolitan Government has organized the ‘Seoul Blockchain Governance Team,’ aiming to provide blockchain administration services across several industries.The Seoul Blockchain Governance Team consists of 100 citizens comprised of college students, developers, corporate representatives, and more. The team plans to participate in a pilot operation of blockchain-based administration services, and provide feedback and recommendations from January 2019 through December 2020. Additionally, they will participate in the development process of Seoul Metropolitan City’s administration services, which include mileage points integration, citizenship card services, online authentication without documents, protection for part-time workers’ rights, and sub-contract payments.“We expect the increase in public blockchain use-cases led by government, and this appointment letter issuance is a starting point to show a clear example of how blockchain can be used in government” said J.H. Kim, council member of the ICON Foundation and CEO of ICONLOOP. Kim added, “ICONLOOP will focus on improving development capability to provide transparent and efficient blockchain-based administration services, cooperating with Seoul Metropolitan Government.”ICONLOOP was selected as an operator of Seoul’s standard blockchain platform for the ‘Seoul Blockchain Demonstration Project’ and the ‘Seoul blockchain-based ISP (Information Strategy Planning) Project,’ which is commissioned by the Seoul Metropolitan Government. ICONLOOP has been applying loopchain, ICONLOOP’s proprietary blockchain engine, to the Seoul Blockchain Standard Platform, used car trading system, and mobile-voting system.

#1. ICON Development Roadmap Update — Jan 2019Greetings from the ICON Team,The ICON Team would like to share what we have achieved in January, focusing on the key components of the roadmap that was released last December. Besides updating the ICON Core functionality, we have continued to improve the security in the inter-node communication protocols, as detailed in summary below.The Interchain Development Team has completed an in-house demonstration to exchange data and tokens between the ICON public blockchain and enterprise loopchains deployed to various organizations and businesses. This protocol will be registered as an IIP and released for developers who are interested in ICON’s interchain capabilities.Our first goal for the interchain protocol is to allow for cross-chain communication between the ICON public blockchain and enterprise loopchain implementations. Our next plan will be to expand the interchain protocol to other public blockchains.The Public Blockchain Development Team is currently focusing on IISS Staking and Voting features to allow ICONists to acquire I-Score before the official P-Rep voting phase starts. After the development of the fee sharing feature is completed, the DApp fee settings will provide an environment where users do not have to pay additional fees when using DApps.DEX core development is almost complete, and we are now working on the stabilization and UI configuration. ICON’s first DEX will increase liquidity for IRC tokens based on ICON’s MainNet. Our next goal is to support token-to-token transactions that can operate on other blockchains by connecting the DEX to the interchain protocol (Blockchain Transfer Protocol, BTP) in the future.The ICON Team has been running a bounty program with HackerOne to enhance the security of the ICON Network. ICON, along with 440 white hat hackers, continue to strive to discover potential security threats and quickly apply security patches. To date, seven issues have been reported and some are being supplemented. Specifically, the ICON Team received a report regarding the pickle library from HackerOne last December, and we are currently optimizing the system per the roadmap. The pickle library will be removed and stabilized by September, before the nodes are distributed to the public, aligning with the election roadmap. Additionally, ICON’s smart contract currently filters out malicious codes through a thorough audit. With various proposals for project growth and stabilization, the ICON Project is becoming more secure.Every member of the ICON Project is focusing on creating an excellent product without being affected by market conditions. We have focused on developing the core blockchain technology over the past year, and now we are focusing on user-specific services this year. We look forward to releasing our new services according to the roadmap, so please stay tuned!-ICON Development TeamICON Development Roadmap update — Jan 2019(link)Summary1.

ICON Accelerates its Expans...

Greetings from the ICON Team,January 18th, 2019 — The ICON Team accelerates our strategy to expand the ICON public blockchain ecosystem. Along with the start of the P-Rep pre-registration for ICON P-Rep candidacy, the ICON Team would like to announce our effort to enhance our corporate blockchain alliance program and global accelerator program, as well as our plans to release a decentralized exchange (DEX) and decentralized identification (DID) system based on the ICON public network in the first half of this year.■ Reinforcing enterprise blockchain alliance with global DApp accelerator programICON pursues DApp partners focused on both B2C and B2B products through the newly established ICON LAP100 (ICON Loopchain Alliance Program) and our global accelerator program, ICX Station. ICON has currently formed partnerships with more than 30 companies to carry out collaboration projects, and already secured 13 new partners this year.ICON is the only blockchain project in South Korea to run a global accelerator program through launching ICX Station locations in major cities such as San Francisco, Singapore, and Seoul. Deblock is serving as the Seoul launchpad of ICX Station, playing a pivotal role in advancing South Korea’s DApp projects into the global market. ICON also has plans to launch a Tokyo launchpad in the first half of this year.In addition to existing partners in various fields, ‘AC3’, a US-based customer-driven viral marketing platform, ‘VELIC’, a Singapore-based comprehensive finance platform for crypto-assets, and ‘Somesing’, a social music application combining user-generated content and reward system joined as ICON’s new DApp partners this year. ICON is currently in conversations with more potential DApp partners as the mission to grow the ecosystem continues.In addition to the efforts of ICX Station, ICON has recently established ‘ICON LAP100’, which is an enterprise blockchain alliance program based on the ICON public blockchain (the core blockchain engine of ICON is loopchain). Its goal is to jointly develop enterprise-specialized blockchain solutions with 100 companies and startups in various fields including biometric identification, certification issuance, payment, etc. On December 27th 2018, ICON held a launch event with several members of ICON LAP100 including Raonsecure, Digitalzone, DataAlliance, Matrix2B, OWDIN Network, Charzin, TheVita, Liwonace, Cryptofuture, and TeamK. Discussions are underway for business development and technology support.For inquiries regarding technical support and service partnerships, check out the ICON Developer Portal (https://icondev.io/).■ Decentralized exchange and identification service to be released in the first half of this yearICON announces plans to release its decentralized exchange (DEX) and decentralized identification (DID) in the first half of this year. ICON has already released ICONex, the wallet that supports transactions across multiple cryptocurrencies with a user-friendly UX/UI, and ICON Tracker, which is a block explorer for ICON that displays all transaction records on the network to enhance transparency and data accessibility.Decentralized exchange (DEX) will support p2p exchange between ICX and IRC2 (ICON mainnet-based tokens). All transactions will be executed via smart contracts to ensure security and transparency compared to centralized exchanges. Additionally, ICON’s DEX will increase the liquidity and usability of IRC2 tokens in the ICON Network, without being listed on external exchanges. ICON aims to implement DEX to connect heterogeneous blockchains in the future and bridge various blockchain communities.ICON plans to release a decentralized identification (DID) mobile application based on its public blockchain. ICON’s DID aligns with the increasing need for data sovereignty, and will allow individuals to store and manage their personal information themselves compared to the current centralized identification system. The benefits of DID include falsification protection, duplication protection, and security of information. DID supports user identification for DApps, making it unnecessary to establish a separate ID system within each individual DApp. The ICON Team will strive to accelerate the expansion of the ICON ecosystem, so join our journey to hyperconnect the world.Thank you,Vote, Spread, DisruptICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicQ&A Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICON Accelerates its Expansion of its Public Blockchain Ecosystem was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Along with the start of the P-Rep pre-registration for ICON P-Rep candidacy, the ICON Team would like to announce our effort to enhance our corporate blockchain alliance program and global accelerator program, as well as our plans to release a decentralized exchange (DEX) and decentralized identification (DID) system based on the ICON public network in the first half of this year.■ Reinforcing enterprise blockchain alliance with global DApp accelerator programICON pursues DApp partners focused on both B2C and B2B products through the newly established ICON LAP100 (ICON Loopchain Alliance Program) and our global accelerator program, ICX Station. ICON has currently formed partnerships with more than 30 companies to carry out collaboration projects, and already secured 13 new partners this year.ICON is the only blockchain project in South Korea to run a global accelerator program through launching ICX Station locations in major cities such as San Francisco, Singapore, and Seoul. Deblock is serving as the Seoul launchpad of ICX Station, playing a pivotal role in advancing South Korea’s DApp projects into the global market. ICON also has plans to launch a Tokyo launchpad in the first half of this year.In addition to existing partners in various fields, ‘AC3’, a US-based customer-driven viral marketing platform, ‘VELIC’, a Singapore-based comprehensive finance platform for crypto-assets, and ‘Somesing’, a social music application combining user-generated content and reward system joined as ICON’s new DApp partners this year. ICON is currently in conversations with more potential DApp partners as the mission to grow the ecosystem continues.In addition to the efforts of ICX Station, ICON has recently established ‘ICON LAP100’, which is an enterprise blockchain alliance program based on the ICON public blockchain (the core blockchain engine of ICON is loopchain). Its goal is to jointly develop enterprise-specialized blockchain solutions with 100 companies and startups in various fields including biometric identification, certification issuance, payment, etc. On December 27th 2018, ICON held a launch event with several members of ICON LAP100 including Raonsecure, Digitalzone, DataAlliance, Matrix2B, OWDIN Network, Charzin, TheVita, Liwonace, Cryptofuture, and TeamK. Discussions are underway for business development and technology support.For inquiries regarding technical support and service partnerships, check out the ICON Developer Portal (https://icondev.io/).■ Decentralized exchange and identification service to be released in the first half of this yearICON announces plans to release its decentralized exchange (DEX) and decentralized identification (DID) in the first half of this year. ICON has already released ICONex, the wallet that supports transactions across multiple cryptocurrencies with a user-friendly UX/UI, and ICON Tracker, which is a block explorer for ICON that displays all transaction records on the network to enhance transparency and data accessibility.Decentralized exchange (DEX) will support p2p exchange between ICX and IRC2 (ICON mainnet-based tokens). All transactions will be executed via smart contracts to ensure security and transparency compared to centralized exchanges. Additionally, ICON’s DEX will increase the liquidity and usability of IRC2 tokens in the ICON Network, without being listed on external exchanges. ICON aims to implement DEX to connect heterogeneous blockchains in the future and bridge various blockchain communities.ICON plans to release a decentralized identification (DID) mobile application based on its public blockchain. ICON’s DID aligns with the increasing need for data sovereignty, and will allow individuals to store and manage their personal information themselves compared to the current centralized identification system. The benefits of DID include falsification protection, duplication protection, and security of information. DID supports user identification for DApps, making it unnecessary to establish a separate ID system within each individual DApp. The ICON Team will strive to accelerate the expansion of the ICON ecosystem, so join our journey to hyperconnect the world.Thank you,Vote, Spread, DisruptICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicQ&A Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICON Accelerates its Expansion of its Public Blockchain Ecosystem was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

“ICONSENSUS, the Journey To...

ICONSENSUS is a journey toward mass adoption of blockchain consisting of four key items: the election of P-Reps(Public Representatives) to decentralize the network, the election of C-Reps (Community Representatives) to support interchain communication, ongoing DBPs (DApp Booster Programs) to fund and promote quality decentralized applications, and ongoing EEPs (Ecosystem Expansion Projects) to incentivize activities that grow the ICON Ecosystem. All of this is only possible through the continued support, enthusiasm, and growth of the ICON community.The election of P-Reps is the first milestone of ICONSENSUS. Pre-registration for ICON P-Rep candidacy starts on January 17th, 2019. We look forward to seeing which members of the ICON community register for a chance to become one of the first P-Reps on the ICON Network.1. Vote, Spread, DisruptVoteDecentralization is one of the core principles of ICON’s governance, and it can only be achieved with the help of the community. 22 P-Reps elected by all participating ICONists will have the distributed responsibility of preserving the ICON Network, producing and verifying blocks, validating transactions, proposing and voting on network policy changes, and driving the growth of the ICON Ecosystem. As a result of stake delegation from ICONists, P-Reps gain economic benefits and voting weight.ICONists delegate their stake to P-Reps through voting. Voting for a P-Rep is a critical action all ICONists are strongly encouraged to take. Every P-Rep may propose different policies in regards to transaction fees, decision-making processes, reward amounts, etc., all of which significantly impact the ICON Network. ICONists who vote will be rewarded with the right to a certain portion of block rewards.SpreadICONSENSUS, driven by the active participation of ICONists, does not end with the P-Rep election. It spreads with various other projects and campaigns pushing toward mass adoption. ICONists will have additional opportunities to help nurture the ICON Ecosystem through voting on ‘Ecosystem Expansion Projects’ (EEP), which any ICONist can propose for network growth, ‘Community Representatives’ (C-Rep), who will connect ICON and other heterogeneous blockchain networks, and ‘DApp Booster Programs’ (DBP), which would allocate a portion of block rewards to a specific decentralized application.DisruptIn the spirit of open source and decentralization, the expansion of the blockchain ecosystem comes down to the community that supports it.

ICON 4Q Achievements

Greetings from the ICON Team,2018 has come to an end and 2019 is upon us. As the ICON Team has strived for blockchain mass adoption over the past year, in the 4th quarter our motto was ‘Mature for a Greater Leap.’ We focused on strengthening the governance, technology and capacity of the ICON project.Specifically, the ICON Team solidified the foundation for the full expansion of the ICON ecosystem and innovation in governance with our token swap support, the release of our technology roadmaps, the release of our Yellow Paper Part 3 — ‘IISS,’ and the first teaser of the ICON P-Rep election, ICONSENSUS. We also presented a blueprint of the relationship between ICON and ICONLOOP, and released an FAQ portal, one of the meaningful steps to improve communications with our fellow ICONists.Below we take a brief look at Q4 2018, outlined with reviews.Loopchain, which is the core blockchain technology behind the ICON Network, powered by ICONLOOP, continues to be used in real world applications.ICONLOOP has been exclusively selected as the sole operator of the ‘Seoul blockchain-based ISP Project,’ which is commissioned by the Seoul Metropolitan Government. As part of the project, ICONLOOP analyzes the status of unit activities and information services for ‘realizing online certification without documents’ and is currently developing a plan to implement it step-by-step. Additionally, ICONLOOP, as an entitled business partner for the ‘FinTech Demonstration Project 2018’, has launched ‘Lifelong Healthy Life’ service in beta version with Kyobo Life Insurance Co., Korea’s largest life insurance company.Furthermore, in recognition of its contributions to the development and popularization of the blockchain industry, ICONLOOP was honored to receive the Korean ‘Minister of Science and ICT (MSIT) Award’. The ICON Team will continue to explore use-cases of blockchain technology with partners in a wide range of fields, aiming to ‘achieve interoperability with the ICON Public network and the ICONLOOP Private networks.’ICON has been building the ecosystem for blockchain developers through online and offline education programs such as Studypie and monthly developer meet-ups. These programs cover basic concepts of blockchain to how to write an ICON Smart Contract ‘SCORE’. Also, as an official technology partner for the AWS Partner Networks, we’ve launched the ICON Development Network in AWS Marketplace, supporting developers in helping to build their ICON TestNet efficiently.Additionally, we are continuing our efforts to expand the ICON public ecosystem and global partnerships in the public sector with newly recruited team members. Including Former Programme Lead of UN Specialized Agency, ITU, and Platform Experts from Korean tech giants, Kakao and SK Planet.ICON has been working globally with major blockchain companies to expand our blockchain ecosystem and offer technical support for ICON DApps. Recently, we launched our Singapore accelerator program ‘TRIBE’ in cooperation with TRIVE Ventures and PwC Singapore’s Venture Hub.TRIBE, the first blockchain accelerator supported by the Singaporean government institution (ESG), will discover and promote new DApp projects as a Singapore launchpad of the ICX Station, in partnership with our additional ICX stations based in Seoul and San Francisco.Also, ICON will also strive to ensure the integrity of the ICON network and vitalization of ICON developer community through our code audit alliance with our strategic partner LayerX, a Japanese blockchain consulting firm.ICON’s vision of interchain has become more specific with the long-awaited technology roadmap and Yellow Paper part 3 — IISS. Going forward, the development status and objectives will be updated transparently on a monthly basis, divided into four phases (in research, in development, stabilization, and completed) and three categories (loopchain technology, governance, and services based on ICON). Given our priority to strengthen the stability and security of the ICON platform, ICON has cooperated with HackerOne in a bug bounty program with 100,000 hackers, to proactively discover network vulnerabilities.The ICON Team will continue to strengthen our blockchain platform by reinforcing these items.The ICON Team participated and sponsored various blockchain events such as Korea Blockchain Expo, LINE LINK DEV, Digital Economy Forum, Blockchain Grand Week, and Devstamp. In addition, ICON, as the title sponsor of the San Francisco Blockchain Week (SFBW), providing a variety of intensive development programs to support adoption among general consumers, academia, and developer communities.Lastly, we introduced three blockchain-based services (identification, voting, payment) at the Seoul International Digital Festival (SIDiF) allowing citizens to feel the practicality of a blockchain use case.We are excited about what the future holds and are preparing to take a big leap forward based on the foundation we laid out in the fourth quarter. We truly appreciate your interest in the ICON project and are looking forward to working with you in the new year!Thank you,Hyperconnect the WorldICON Team______ICON official communityHomepage : https://icon.foundationMedium (ENG) : https://medium.com/helloiconworldBrunch (KOR) : https://brunch.co.kr/@helloiconworldKakaoTalk (KOR) : https://open.kakao.com/o/gMAFhdSTelegram (ENG) : https://t.me/joinchat/Fqw4igkkVmYtj--ZVi-QcATelegram (KOR) : https://t.me/iconkoreaFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/helloicon/Reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/helloicon/Twitter (Foundation) : https://twitter.com/helloiconworldTwitter (Republic) : https://twitter.com/IconRepublicQ&A Portal : https://helloiconworld.freshdesk.com/support/homeContact : hello@icon.foundationICON 4Q Achievements was originally published in Hello ICON World on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
