Key Highlights:
  • 60%+ of the circulating supply is staked vs. 38.4% at the end of 2019. We have now officially surpassed the 60% milestone, and we believe that this upward trend continues to show long-term confidence in $ICX.
  • The latest ICON Tech Roadmap Update is released. For those of you who may not be aware, we publish an update every month.
  • ZenSports, one of the first ICON DApps, adds $ICX to its sports betting platform.
  • Omm Finance, a new DeFi project on ICON, is announced by ICX Station, iBriz, and Parrot9 P-Rep teams.
  • ICONSwap launches a new website with a new look. This is a collaboration between Reliant Node and ICONation P-Rep teams.
  • ICONLOOP’s VisitMe continues to thrive, surpassing 200,000 users.

The $ICX non circulating supply has been decreasing by the day and once #ICON's transactions start picking up you can only imagine what it will do to the price! 🚀📈
Dear ICONists,
3Q 2020 is officially in the books. We’re extremely proud of what we’ve been able to achieve this quarter. Crypto is arguably one of the most brutally fast-paced, dynamic industries today. The volatility, unpredictability, and the monumental risks associated with cutting-edge technology and regulation are a few of the reasons why we truly appreciate everyone that is involved with the ICON project. The ICON public blockchain network continues to improve day by day, and everyone from our core team to the P-Reps and the community is what makes ICON a unique project.
As mentioned above and for a while now, more and more people have been staking $ICX every week. We believe this shows our community’s strong faith and support for the ICON network for the long term. In addition, we’re proud that the community is working together to spread votes more and more. The below chart shows the analysis by the Transcranial Solutions P-Rep team. We absolutely love this trend, but it’s not enough. WE NEED MORE VOTE SPREADING.

👑 @IHyperconnect gained the most voters

#ICONProject $ICX #ICONSpartans
Yes, the ICON team along with other P-Reps are continuing to discuss solutions to the vote stagnancy problem. This is an extremely difficult challenge and we’re all working on it. In the meantime, we need our community to educate the importance of vote spreading to each other, so please help get the word around. Again, WE NEED MORE VOTE SPREADING.
Good trend. Vote LESS of @helloiconworld and other top 20 P-Reps (esp. top 10). Vote MORE for those outside of top 20.
ICON’s on-chain governance system is one of the best in our industry today. We continue to put a bulk of our resources into governance features and designs. With ICON 2.0 and our unique community, it’s going to be even better in the near future. We’ll continue to make improvements with governance because it’s what sustains, secures, and drives growth for the network in the long run. At ICON, we’re all about increasing the long-term value of our network.

Attention Main P-Reps and ICONists interested in governance - I'll be adding new topics of discussion to the forum as we get closer to ICON 2.0 Batang.

First topic of discussion - Solution to offline Sub P-Reps

#ICONProject #Governance $ICX
After 3 years ($ICX token sale was at the end of Sep 2017, remember?), ICON is still here and alive. We’re still growing and improving. And the best is yet to come.
Keep Calm and Stake ICON,
Min Kim, ICON Foundation Council Member
Latest ICON Roadmap Update

Ricky Dodds talks ICON 2.0: BATANG
ICON 2.0: BATANG has been hands down the most important tech news for the ICON network. Although we’ve had multiple follow-ups on this news, we’ll continue to spread the word and answer questions because it’s that important of a topic. Our very own Ricky Dodds, Head of Strategy and Communications, shares his view on ICON 2.0 in his interview with E-Crypto News.

Place bets on ZenSports with $ICX
We knew this was coming sooner or later. Now it’s official. Sports betting is a multi-billion dollar industry and it continues to grow, especially with recent ease in regulation in the U.S. Remember to bet legally and responsibly.
Quick programming update - we'll be adding $ICX betting into ZenSports on October 13th, not the 6th. We're spending some extra time on it to make it super special and perfect for the @helloiconworld community. 😊👍
