ICON is a public 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 blockchain 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 blockchain consists of two primary actors:
- ICONists: the users, stakers and delegators of the ICON blockchain.
- Public Representatives (P-Reps): those who run validator nodes for the ICON blockchain, such as Protokol7.
Thanks to the vibrant community, the ICON blockchain is continually expanding. Protokol7 has made the decision and commitment to build on the ICON blockchain to drive sustainable and long term value for users.
