Interoperability and OnChain Governance Platform
ICON Project is a third generation layer one DPoS smart contract platform that is focused on interoperability and onchain governance. Launched in 2017, the network is governed by over 110 nodes spread across more than 35 different countries. The novel IISS (ICON Incentive Scoring System) drives ICON’s unique ‘Delegated Proof of Contribution’ design, which rewards contribution and incentivizes growth. Propelling ICON to world recognition, this technology has set a benchmark in the industry.
An Outstanding Ecosystem
With an ecosystem that boasts governments, multinational corporations and startups, not to mention some of the most popular D’Apps in the industry, ICON powers decentralized ID (DID) products such as VisitMe and Broof, and also DAOs like ICON Vote and ICONbet. The ICON network also includes other decentralized blockchain communities like STAYGE and SOMESING, respectively a K-Pop global fan community and the first global karaoke service built on blockchain.
The core blockchain engine, Loopchain, that powers ICON, is developed by ICONLOOP. As one of the leading enterprise blockchain solutions in Korea, it is considered the standard blockchain platform for the Seoul Metro Government. It powers MyID, the leading decentralized identity (DID) consortium in Korea. This consortium includes an alliance of more than fifty companies and organizations including Shinhan Bank and Samsung Electronics.
ICON Boosts Higher Staking Rewards for Voters
A governance and utility token, ICX is used to power the ICON Network. As a 3rd generation DPoS network, when compared with other layer one smart contract platforms, ICON features increase scalability and throughput. Moreover, it runs on the same core technology that powers many enterprise and government services.
Several features make ICX stand out from their competitors. One is their onchain governance which is driven by proposals that comes from a network of validators within the ICON community.
Another is their Contribution Proposal Fund which incentivizes growth and contribution. This is operated as a decentralized autonomous grant system and funded through network resources.
Lastly, their unique IISS design provides voters and representatives with attractive rewards for their contribution. At present, their staking reward for voters is 17% per annum with a real yield of 9%, which makes it the highest amongst peers in the market.
Launch of LFT 2.0
In the coming weeks, ICON will be launching LFT 2.0. This is a next-generation BFT (Byzantine Fault Tolerant) consensus algorithm that has improved upon the existing LFT (Loop Fault Tolerance) algorithm. Version 2.0 can achieve high performance, improve latency and transactions per second (TPS). More announcements on the launch will be posted on ICON’s channels.
