ICON is a blockchain protocol for decentralized applications. As an aggregator chain, it achieves interoperability—a web of interconnected networks aggregating all blockchain data into one layer.
The ICON network is powered by a high throughput blockchain engine called ‘goloop’, developed and updated by blockchain industry leaders, ICONLOOP. In the process, ICON has made several industry breakthroughs, including its recent consensus algorithm and interoperability protocol: Blockchain Transmission Protocol.
The ICON Network consists of 2 primary actors: ICONists: the users, stakers and delegators of the ICON Network, and Public Representatives: those who run validator nodes on the ICON Network, such as ourselves.
Thanks to our vibrant community, our network is continually expanding. Protokol7 has made the decision and commitment to build on the ICON network to drive sustainable and long term value for users.
