  • Healthy signs of community activity with Forum Total Posts/Comments noticeably increasing recently (+5% in the past couple of weeks).
  • Project Nebula, a new NFT game, kicks off with a BANG with 99 planet NFTs selling out in 4 minutes. The first planet sells for 5,009 ICX.
  • The STIN – Styrian Gin Distiller’s Cut is finally available to order. Special limited 999 bottles can be verified for authenticity on the ICON network.
  • ICONbet’s DAOlottery jackpot surpasses 100,000 ICX. Wow!
  • New $ICX listing on Exchange.
  • Gangnam Testnet goes live + October Roadmap Update

  • ICON appears on Korean government’s NIPA Survey.
  • Lots and lots of ICON videos and podcasts.
Greetings ICONists,
I don’t know about you, but it feels like we’re starting to enter a new phase for the ICON project. First, ICONLOOP’s digital identity product ‘Zzeung’ is starting to hit its stride with approximately 50,000 KYC-ed accounts with Shinhan Bank partnership alone in less than a month. And, of course, the Jeju Island project is progressing smoothly towards its official launch this month.
In related news, Jeju Governor Won Hee-ryong announced a $5 billion government investment plan focused on developing blockchain and IoT technologies. And, South Korea passed the bill to regulate cryptocurrency in line with FATF standards. The future of crypto and blockchain is looking brighter than ever for South Korea, ICON, and ICONLOOP with clear regulatory guidance.
Most importantly, as mentioned many times before, ICON is no longer solely driven by ICON Foundation or ICONLOOP. The future of ICON depends on the work of P-Reps and other contributors to the network and we’re excited to see this happening today. We’re anticipating new DeFi projects including BalancedDAO and OMM. And, we’re excited to see other projects such as Nebula, STIN, and others launching on the ICON network.
Thank you for your continued support for the ICON project. We’re pleased to have you on this incredible journey with us.
Min Kim, ICON Foundation Council Member

Project Nebula planets SOLD OUT!!!
Project Nebula
😱 What just happened ?!

The first 99 planet NFTs were sold out in 4 minutes.

The Legendary Dust Planet Edres auction is still live though -

Next week new planets will be added to the Marketplace ;)
Project Nebula project is yet to be completed. They launched a pre-sale of its NFT planets at the end of October and ALL 99 planet NFTs were sold out in 4 minutes. The very first planet sold for 5009 ICX (~USD$1750)!!! Don’t worry if you missed out because you can still bid for other planets in the Marketplace.
The game is expected to be completed in March 2021. Players can discover and collect unique planets, artifacts, and more in an ever-expanding gameplay universe. We’re all looking forward to this!
If you’d like to support this project, be sure to VOTE for ICON Forge P-Rep team.
STIN now available to order
If you missed out on Elon Musk’s Teslaquila last week, don’t fret. STIN is now available (in select countries) for order on this cool website.
The STIN – Styrian Gin Distiller’s Cut is an exceptional and intense distillate, with a special spicy note and is produced in limited quantities. Only 999 bottles will be available.
STIN uses an Infineon powered contactless crypto-chip which has a uniquely created public-private keypair stored on it. In the labeling process, this chip is implemented carefully by hand on the bottle in a way that can’t be manipulated afterwards.
Due to the signature of the chip, anybody can check the limited edition of 999 bottles on a public blockchain. The list which includes all bottles ever produced is stored securely on the ICON blockchain.
If you’d like to support this project, be sure to VOTE for Block 42 P-Rep team.
STIN distiller's cut is now available!

Only 999 bottles of this limited edition gin were created, the scarcity of the bottles is secured by the ICON network's blockchain technology.

Get yours:

DAOlottery Jackpot surpasses 100,000 ICX
Just within a few months, ICONbet’s DAOlottery Jackpot size has surpassed 100,000 ICX. But, the jackpot has been getting bigger and faster. We bet it’ll hit 200,000 ICX in a couple of weeks unless someone wins it.
ICONbet currently has 6 games (DAObaccarat, DAOlevels, DAOlette, DAOlottery, DAOdice, DAOblackjack) with 3 more games in the pipeline (DAOcolors, DAOwar, DAOholdem). What is impressive is that all this is happening through community contribution only through a DAO governance process.
Please play responsibility and follow gaming and tax laws of your local jurisdiction.

We know ICON DAO P-Rep team is always hustling to contribute to the ICON network. Check out the team photo below. No, this is not the ICON Foundation or ICONLOOP employees. This photo evidence that ICON has grown beyond the core teams.

ICON appears on Korean Government Survey
ICON is the largest blockchain project in Korea by market capitalization. ICON is also the only native blockchain technology in Korea built from ground up (not forked). So, it’s great to see some recognition from Korea’s National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) on its latest blockchain survey.
NIPA Korean gov’t survey sent out to all blockchain projects asks, “Which platform are you using or considering for mainnet?”

1. Ethereum
2. Hyperledger Fabric
3. EOS
4. ICON <= 😎😎😎
5. Self-developed
6. Other
