ICON

The ICON project is building one of the largest decentralized networks in the world and aims for "Hyperconnecting the World".

 
About ICON
ICON is a high performance 3rd generation blockchain protocol that supports interoperability. It is one of the largest blockchain networks in the world and connects institutions in major industries like banking, media, healthcare, electronics, insurance and gaming.
 
Currently more than 100 full time employees are working on the project, making ICON one of the largest teams in the blockchain space. Over the past years ICON has established a large network of partners and has created a few leading initiatives.
Our Contribution
We would like to see communities be freed and fully connected. Our contribution to reach that goal and to support the ICON ecosystem encompasses four major areas.
COMMUNITY
Each ecosystem is only as strong as its community.
CONSULTING
Bridging the gap between real businesses and the blockchain world.
DEVELOPMENT
Building dApps, network services and developer tools.
INVESTING
Supporting the ecosystem by allocating company funds to it.
Currently we are working on several projects on the ICON Blockchain.
Our aim is to give everyday our best to push the ecosystem one step ahead.

LICX (In Progress)

Liquid ICX (LICX) is setting the foundation for DeFi on the ICON Network. It is a token that represents staked ICX. This allows users to transfer ICX to another wallet while still receiving the rewards for staking.

BRIDGE (In Progress)

While a lot of people truly care about decentralization and blockchain technology, there are many who just want an easy interface. Together with ICX Station and Parrot9 we are building an application that allows non-crypto users to use blockchain services on the ICON Network only with fiat money.

SMART OBJECTS (In Progress)

Along with our partner primtec GmbH we are developing a smart city application that will run on the ICON network. Relevant objects will be made uniquely identifiable by labeling them with NFC transponders, which have a crypto function and can sign a transaction on the blockchain. This will ensure tamper-proof documentation of any service or inspection for the objects.

WHALE WATCHER

Vote distribution is necessary for a decentralized network to stay secure. In order to support that, we want the community to be informed about big delegation changes. Whale Watcher presents this data in an easily understandable way and inherently brings transparency to delegation changes of wallets.

ICX STAKR

ICX Stakr allows users to calculate their rewards for staking and voting. Moreover, the differences between the rewards are shown, if the user restakes and takes advantage of the compound interest. ICX Stakr also provides some information about the network, like the amount of ICX staked, the reward rate and the unstaking period.

TRANSPARENCY

Our understanding of being a P-REP is closely linked to act in a trustful and transparent way. That is why we provide monthly transparency reports where we state clearly how our funds are spended.

We are also constantly publishing progress reports on the ongoing projects, which you can check out directly on our Medium Blog.

GUIDES

Because we believe the community is a big part of the ecosystem we want to help them using the existing tools with ease. Therefore we published Guides for the most common actions in the ICON ecosystem.

ICON EUROPE

noun_europe_1463079.png
We founded the ICON Europe Initiative in order to set up a collaboration of European P-REPS and to strengthen ICON's presence in this area. In the future, events like webinars and live meetups are planned to connect the European ICON Community. Furthermore, grants can be offered to European teams for developing applications on the ICON blockchain.
Get a look on the upcoming events at: https://www.icon-europe.community/

CONSULTING

We provide ongoing consultation services for corporates and startups. We also conduct special blockchain trainings and workshops where blockchain basics as well as the ICON blockchain are explained. Together with our customers we create highly sophisticated technical concepts.

INVESTING

In order to grow constantly, investments are also an important part. We are invested into the ICON network since it's ICO in 2017 and also take regular cyclic investments into the ICX token.
We also execute workshops and trainings about "Investing in Digital Assets". Since we support a lot of decentralized ecosystems such as ICON, Fantom or Fusion, we are heavily experienced in this sector.

NODE PROVIDER

In order to support the decentralization and the stability of the network we are also operating a node for the ICON Blockchain.
You can check out our node statistics here.

"We think in this way we provide value for the whole ICON ecosystem and support it the best we can on it's way to create a hyperconnected world."

Do you think the same? If you like what we do, we would appreciate your votes.

Team

At block42 we unite more than 10 people working towards our goal of reaching the moon.
Although all our work for the ICON ecosystem is driven by four key players, everyone in the team supports the growth of the ICON network with different skills.

Our Motivation
Our motivation to support the ICON network can be grouped into 3 important reasons.
SUCCESS: We are convinced about ICON's success. As we are already part of the network since the ICO, we are still strong believers in the project. We’ve witnessed the commitment of ICON’s community and the amazing progress the team makes. ICON plays no “bullshit bingo”. Instead, real customer needs are addressed by interconnecting blockchain communities.
SUCCESS
AWARENESS: An ecosystem is only as strong as its community. A hyperconnected world can only be realized if a certain number of people understand, want and contribute from/to the ecosystem. ICON’s community in the Asian region is already quite strong. In our experience, Europe lags behind. Our promise as a P-Rep: We will change that!
AWARENESS
DECENTRALIZATION: ICON’s approach of decentralization brought us to become a P-Rep candidate. The ICON foundation proved their interest in a long lasting success of the ecosystem by giving away power. Power from one institution towards the community. In our opinion, decentralized indirect democracy is the way to go for building a global ecosystem. ICON perfectly designed this approach by following its Delegated Proof of Contribution (DPoC) consensus algorithm.

Balance is the key to maintain anything healthy.

 

Everything, even water is toxic in large doses. Decentralization brings everyone together and makes them balance in the middle with anyone being able to participate.

 

ICON is one of the leading projects that implemented on-chain governance, this allows many viewpoints to find balance and bring the best solutions on the issues that the blockchain industry is facing when trying to achieve global adoption.
