ICON (ICX) – ICONSENSUS P-Rep Elections Reach 50 Applicants 3177

ICON’s plans of facilitating blockchain mass-adoption                                                                                  

ICON (ICX) represents a blockchain-based project whose purpose is to facilitate the mass adoption of blockchain technology by interconnecting a series of independent chains with their afferent communities. In other words, via the ICON Network, blockchain operators will be able to exchange value across the array of independent chains, without relying on third-party intermediaries.

P-Reps (public representatives) act as the ICON Network’s transaction validators, yet their responsibilities include network contribution via facilitating consensus and governing the project. Based on this, the ICON Network has recently launched its candidates & election platform, where potential P-Reps can apply for the position in question. The requirements are quite inclusive; therefore numerous blockchain-related companies have applied for the position. A P-Rep is the representative of all ICONists, creating blocks and validating transactions on the ICON Network, and playing a number of roles in the Network including monetary policies, key decision makings, and establishing ecosystems.

ICONSENSUS Candidates

So far, 50 P-Rep candidates have registered, coming from vastly different national backgrounds with the goal of decentralizing the ICON Network.

RHIZOME represents the content creation and marketing service of the ICON community. Its candidature application includes data on how it plans to transform ICON into one of the crypto market’s most popular projects. RHIZOME plans to achieve this by producing and publishing content while working with various 3rdparty press outlets to further boost the popularity of the network. Well-written content alongside professional videos and recordings will be handled by the RHIZOME team as well.

The team strategy also includes points on business development and community involvement. RHIZOME will also be attending crypto conferences and organizing ICON meet-ups.

ICONation is another P-Rep candidate known for involving a series of well-prepared and passionate individuals who are well-versed with the ICON project. As such, the ICONation team members include users whose careers are oriented towards software development, law, business management, computer security, community management and more. Thanks to its team’s extensive backgrounds, ICONation can provide several contributions, including but not limited to: network growth, community-driven governance, great security protocols, network management and more.

As part of its application, the ICONation team will facilitate block production (by verifying transactions and producing blocks), network growth (by raising awareness), governance (by relaying the opinions and voice of the ICON community), and security (by implementing security protocols that make it impossible for ICON users to be affected by fraud, hacks, or abuse).

ICONists will be able to vote by delegating their ICX tokens towards their favorite P-Rep candidate/s. In doing so ICONists will earn staking rewards. The official elections will take place on September 2019. After the results are processed, 22 teams will be listed as P-Rep block producers for the ICON Network.

ICON (ICX) – Whatever Happened to The Korean Ethereum? 6733

icon icx

Bitcoiner since $59BittBurger, gives us his take on the current status of the South Korean ICON project. This post is primarily about a solid uptick in community involvement, decentralized marketing, and the token side of things. For the last year and a half we had a pretty uninvolved community, while the company continued to work under the hood to build something huge.

A lot is happening right now. I feel like nobody knows about it.

It’s Happening

A lot is happening right now. I feel like nobody knows about it. It just started. Most of it. So your patience will be appreciated. But I’ve never seen so much proactivity in this project on the token-side of things before.

  • AMBASSADOR PROGRAM: Over the last handful of weeks, the Ambassador program has begun. This program incentivizes the creation of content to promote ICON across social media and the internet. Several Ambassadors have already put out multiple articles that are getting ranked across Google and Medium, bringing attention to the project.

  • ICONSENSUS P-REPS: The number of ICONSENSUS P-REP candidates has surpassed 40 (there will only be 22 voted in) and ICON is beginning a strong marketing push to attract more teams this month, with the goal of reaching 100. Check out the candidate interviews here.

  • EXPOSURE: Some of these P-REP teams which including RHIZOMEICONation, and Ubik have already begun cranking out content, started YouTube video channels, and scrambling to get ICON on podcasts.

  • PODCASTS: Speaking of Podcasts, several investors have begun reaching out to their contacts at several different podcast and YouTube influencers. The goal is to get ICON team members on for an interview, to talk about the project and get the ICON name in front of tens of thousands of faces (or ears). Ricky and others at ICON have been excited to make themselves available for this, which makes all of us extremely grateful. I will be working to get someone on my friend Chico Crypto‘s YouTube channel soon, and a handful of podcasts are already underway for scheduling.

  • EXCHANGES: This past week, a group formed within the Telegram channel to focus entirely on reaching out to as many new exchanges as possible, and getting ICON listed on them. A Trello has been set up, and we’ve already begun making headway on this incredibly important goal.

  • BINANCE USA LISTING: With the advent of Binance USA, both the ICON team and everyone involved are aggressively pursuing assurance that ICX will be listed on the new exchange for US investors.

  • COINBASE LISTING: The same is being done for ICX being in the next couple rounds of newly added coins on Coinbase. I’ve spoken to team members at ICON who have assured me they’ve been following up on this regularly. Please download their app > Sign in > Click “View all Assets” > Then scroll down and click “Follow” on ICON. This is an important metric for Coinbase to decide what gets added next.

  • HIRING PR COMPANY: Two days ago I managed to connect Ricky Dodds (ICONS Head of Institutional Markets in their San Francisco office) to a close friend of mine who runs the PR company which took Genesis mining from nothing to a $2 Billion valuation, and got them on that 60 minutes episode a few weeks ago about Bitcoin. The mining segment in Iceland was thanks to him. Intro email was sent and the two of them have been connected to see if they’re a good fit.

  • HIRING PR COMPANY: Today, I connected Ricky to another company who runs a significantly larger Crypto-focused PR and marketing company. These guys were responsible for some of the biggest successes in Crypto, including Ethereum, NEO, Maidsafe, Qtum, Bancor, Lisk, and Augur. They also managed scaling campaigns for DASH, Ripple, Bittrex, and Kraken. They were excited as they personally know 4 of the 8 advisors listed on the ICON website, and they have an office in Seoul, South Korea in addition to Santa Monica, NYC, Las Vegas, Toronto, and San Francisco. To say I am excited to see the emails flying around today between Ricky and their team would be an understatement.

  • STAKING! 15% Staking is coming in 43 days. The ramifications of this can not be overstated. Aside from the completely speculative “claim” from some that their whale groups will stop suppressing the price at that time (which would be great, if it’s true), I expect nearly everyone to be staking their coins, completely drying up the order book and causing massive upward price pressure come September.

  • INCENTIVE PROGRAMS: I was happy to hear from a team member that several very specific plans are being put in place, after observing countless incentive programs by other projects that have resulted in price gains. The ICON team has realized the importance of creating incentive, interest, anticipation, and excitement for this token, and they’re taking steps to make it a reality for ICX.

My point in writing this: A LOT is coming in the next 8 to 12 weeks. All of this is centered around recovering and catapulting the price as high as it can possibly go. ICON is seeking out the all-stars in this industry with incredibly resumes, and asking the experts for direction and input.

All of the marketing and promotion has just barely begun. Everything is at ground zero. But its finally happening. All the things we’ve been hoping for, for a year and a half.
