ICON [ICX] is decentralized, open-source, blockchain-powered software aimed to streamline the interoperability of heterogeneous blockchains (called communities). ICON defines its communities as networks of nodes that are controlled and managed by a single governance system. In this context, a node is viewed as a computing machine connected to a crypto network.
The project is powered by the ICX Coin. It is a global electronic currency that can be used to access ICON applications. ICX is required to send or receive payments on the blockchain, and it is also a settlement medium for ICON transactions. The live ICON [ICX] market price chart allows you to see the value dynamics of this coin.
The ICON project strives to create such a platform that will allow entities from different business spheres, both centralized and decentralized, to effectively communicate and transact with each other within the single ICON environment. Industries to benefit from ICON include financial institutions, commercial organizations, healthcare providers, schools, insurance companies, governments, and others.
ICON also launched its own token standard: IRC16. It enables developers to utilize the ICON software as infrastructure to design their own tokenized assets and securities.
ICON is aspired to build a virtual nation where diversified economic players can issue and manage their own form of value, under the rules they choose. Their vision is to “hyper-connect” the world by creating one of the largest distributed ecosystems ever.
The creation of the ICON project was inspired by the fact that the actors of the real-world economy (enterprises, non-profit organizations, government agencies, etc.) use a uniform medium of exchange – the national currency – while remaining separate but interoperable economic entities. The blockchain technology and associated cryptocurrency ICX provide economic players with a single point of connection, creating an interconnected blockchain ecosystem.
From this perspective, ICON serves as a blockchain hub for standalone chains. The company’s efforts are aimed at solving the notorious problem in the growing industry of blockchain technology: the majority of individual blockchain communities operate their own network and cannot intercommunicate with each other. The ability to interlink various autonomous networks is a huge step forward in blockchain technology, which is increasingly being used as a more secure way to transfer and/or store all types of data.
ICON is on a mission to create a greater blockchain network consisting of smaller autonomous networks that are all powered by cryptocurrencies. Blockchains that join the ICON project can transact with each other using the platform’s decentralized exchange (DEX).
The DEX establishes currency reserves for all blockchain communities so that they can exchange value in real-time. Exchange rates are determined for these transactions using an AI-enabled analysis scheme, while the native ICX token is used as an intermediate currency for the exchange.
ICON’ architecture is presented by five core elements:
ICON Communities. Each community is a group of nodes with their own governance rules – they can establish their own governance structure, number of nodes, and other features. Communities can also have their own decision-making approaches.
The blockchain of the ICON Republic is called "Nexus". The technology behind Nexus is an algorithm called Loopchain. Loopchain bridges all ICON Republic communities. When grouped, these communities are named “Consortium.” Consortium defines a common suite of rules that allow separate blockchains to flawlessly interact with each other.
The collection of rules determining the interaction logic of separate blockchains with Nexus is called the Blockchain Transmission Protocol (BTP).
The ICON Platform allows everyone to design their own decentralized applications with the help of blockchain's public channel. Applications built on top of ICON get listed on ICON’s DAPP store, so that any member of a citizen node can install and use these decentralized apps.
The Byzantine fault tolerance delegated proof-of-stake consensus algorithms secures the ICON platform. ICON Validators (P-Reps) secure the Network by staking the native token ICX.
ICX token owners (ICONists) can delegate their ICX to these P-Reps to ensure the flawless performance of the network. Each P-Rep is secured by the stake of their ICONists. P-Reps are operated by teams of software developers, marketers, corporations, and other entities that are long-term supporters of the ICON project.
ICX is a virtual currency of the ICON ecosystem. It is used for sending and accepting payments on the ICON blockchain and as a fee for ICON transactions.
Along with that, ICX tokens are suitable for staking. ICON currently offers one of the highest rewards for blockchain staking of 10.60% per 1 ICX staked.
With ICX staking, a user locks up the ICX in their wallet for a particular time and receives ICX rewards. A user needs to delegate the staked ICX to a Public Representative (P-Rep) to get rewarded. The lock-up period varies as network activities change, but is currently nearly 8 days.
ICX tokens can be used to access Dapps on the ICON network and are also required to partake in ICON’s governance: staking and delegation.
ICX is listed on the world’s largest crypto exchanges with significant daily trading volumes. The most trusted resources of ICX cryptocurrency are Binance, OKEX, Huobi, Kraken, UpBit. Before investing in cryptocurrencies, be aware of the fact that the ICX market price is subject to extreme volatility.
ICX can be stored safely for staking and delegation purposes in such crypto wallets as Ledger, Atomic, Myiconwallet, and ICONex.
