Greetings ICONists,
The long-awaited beta version of the CPS has launched and is off to a fast start with 10 proposals and 33 registered P-Reps participating in the evaluation process. The voting period for the first batch of applicants lasts another 10 days, but we are very encouraged by the initial response, and participation. Make sure to stay up to date on the CPS here.

Been tracking CPS votes come in. I’m still in disbelief seeing how everything @helloiconworld envisioned years ago is finally coming together, piece by piece.

33 P-Reps making LT commitment to @IconRepublic. CPS is already attracting new builders.

This is DECENTRALIZATION!!! https://t.co/ewUTTYqt84
The CPS is still in the early stages of its development, so if you have suggestions on the platform please be sure to share them with the IBriz team! The CPS will be a main contributor of funding and growth of our network over time so make sure to take a look and provide your feedback!
Overall, it is a huge step in the right direction for our network and we can’t wait to see what’s to come!
Thanks,
ICON team
Binance takes the top spot
Now with over 51 million $ICX staked, Binance is the top validator on the ICON Network. We believe this is a very strong indicator of support for our ecosystem and we look forward to their continued support.
If you’re new to the ICON ecosystem you can check out all the validators here.

Today @Binance staked another 20M $ICX and is now the number 1 Block Validator on the @helloiconworld!

Something is brewing. Something, something up only 😉. https://t.co/klV0JoSTik
A new peer-to-contract protocol announced
Equality is a decentralized, non-custodial, peer-to-contract exchange protocol designed to trade assets that, assuming honest and secure conditions, should trade at approximately the same value.
The goal of Equality is to create an exchange that will allow users to trade similarly-priced assets — such as stablecoins — with low fees and slippage. The protocol will gather adequate liquidity by incentivizing liquidity providers (LPs) with a share of transaction fees. Additionally, the liquidity pools will be integrated with other ICON DeFi products such as OMM to provide additional yield for LPs.
This is another exciting project to keep an eye on. See the full release below:

Yesterday, ICONLOOP and Seoul Metropolitan Government announced the mass implementation of contactless online reservations for more than 7,000 public services. Another HUGE win for the ICONLOOP team!
Markus put together a great tweet thread highlighting the news (above). These public services include sports facilities, cultural & educational programs, medical treatment at city hospitals & much more, all operated by the Seoul Metropolitan Government.
ICONLOOP continues to showcase the strong ties to Seoul Metro and this announcement builds on its relationship with Seoul Metro from prior years.
CONGRATS to all involved!
