What is ICON Project? ICON is an interconnecting blockchain network. ICON can connect independent blockchains without the use of additionalShow more [+] third-party intermediaries. Various blockchains can communicate with each other through the ICON platform. By connecting siloed blockchains, ICON aims to become the largest blockchain in existence.
ICON tokens are named ICX. ICX is used as an intermediary currency when transacting amongst the various blockchain networks. As an inter-chain blockchain, the ICON platform will be able to host other ICOs on the ICON platform.
The panel team is partnering with the hx57 ICON Community Alliance to launch the ICON Research Week. For the week of August 20th, our researchers will collaborate with hx57 and the ICON community to curate interesting articles, discussions and podcasts that will be published through the hx57 publication on medium.
For the next few days leading up to the event, we will be working with hx57 members and other interesting figures to prepare content for release starting August 20th. If you would like to get involved in discussions about ICON, please join our community @ t.me/iconhx57 or directly message us at @hellopanel telegram / reddit DM. Our researchers and community members are already hard at work to produce high quality content, and we would love to have more community members join the initiative.
Below, you'll find some interesting prompts for ICON discussion to get the conversation started. If any of these topics speak to you, feel free to jump in on this thread or in our telegram channel. We will keep this thread open for a week and gather any insights from this thread to add to our public releases.
Also, let us know about any other interesting topics you would like us to cover for ICON Research Week. Here are some prompts we came up with - if any of these speak to you or if any of these are something you want more written about, please feel free to comment, add to the list, start writing in the drive (link in the hx57 telegram), etc. Even editing or retweeting content helps.
We're looking forward to helping educate & grow the community through hx57!
