We believe that ICON mass adoption can only be accomplished by building various high-quality products and user-friendly services around ICON Network, which connect to DApps and utilize ICX token under-the-hood without the users even knowing. Seamless and positive user experience is what we are trying to achieve.
We think Delegate Proof Of Contribution is working, and is working very well. To be brutally honest, our utmost motivation is to nurture the price by contributing the best of our ability to the ICON ecosystem and gradually drive organic, non-speculative, demand for the ICX token. As a result, value will rise and community will thrive.
I am a strong crypto believer and a multi-disciplinary software developer with 15 years experience working in financial and banking sectors for international institutions such as Macquarie Bank Australia, ING Direct and OFX group. I specialize in building traditional equity, derivative, commodity and retail FX trading systems, both server-side and client-side. Decentralized Finance is the area I am interested in and ICON interoperable blockchain especially STO is what I will be spending my next few years on.
I have been an ICX bagholder since ICO who survived the crypto winter and still truly believe in ICON future. In real life, I am a full-time experienced R&D programmer working in 3D industry. In recent years, blockchain and crypto economic has taken most of my spare time. So many great things learned during this journey. I hope ICON will be the de-facto interoperability protocol one day. Once ICONVIET secures a strong position in Top 22 P-Reps, I will devote more time contributing to ICON ecosystem and gradually make it full-time. May the moon be with us!
Hello, my name is Corey Costa, the former ICONSENSUS Ambassador and Public Relations Manager for ICONVIET! I have been active within the ICON Ecosystem since early 2018 and have written numerous articles for the ICON Ecosystem voluntarily and as an Ambassador: one of these articles, titled “ICON, The Embodiment of Democracy and the Free Market” was retweeted by Min Kim and garnered over 6000 views. I am also a writer for the Hello ICON World and ICON Community Medium Publications. I have also hosted the newly created podcast “The Democratic Chronicles” where I interviewed different P-Reps about their intentions for the ICON Ecosystem. I am in graduate school studying History/Adolescent Education to become a high school teacher with aspirations to be a college professor. I graduated as one of two students as “Summa Cum Laude” in a graduating class of approximately 4000 students. I am the founder of “The Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Club” at my university and also have my own cryptocurrency course on the online educational platform known as Udemy. My goal is to expand and perpetuate the ICON Ecosystem through the technological innovations created by the ICONVIET through content creation and also, covering our progress on my YouTube podcast!
I am a blockchain enthusiast and ICON investor since 2018. I am a true believer in ICON blockchain technology and have been actively engaging with other ICONists on Twitter to spread ICON awareness within the international crypto community. With 3 years experience in marketing earned from previous e-commerce business, I aim to grow ICON community in Vietnam among investors and developers to help expanding ICON’s stand in the local crypto community.
If we become one of the main P-Reps, the block production and verification reward will be used to rent a little nicer office space, provide infrastructure redundancy, and accelerate our development, marketing and community building efforts:
- Block Production and Verification Reward
- 28% for redundant infrastructure (2+ regions)
- 46% for development (2 full-time core developers)
- 6% for marketing (1 full-time core community manager)
- 12% for 8-pax dedicated office space and extracurricular activities
- 8% for motion graphics, events, seminars, training materials for developers
- In this case, Representative Reward above will then be used for hiring contractors, organizing events, onboarding DApps builders and any remaining reward will be sent staking fund to stake for ourself, instead of dumping on the open market for fiat
Core people are all of team members and contractors (application developers, digital marketers, event organizers…) are those we will hire from the local pool of talents.
