ICON's Network of Networks

ICON is a 3rd generation blockchain protocol. Its blockchain engine, Loopchain, powers both the ICON public and private networks.

Loopchain has implementations with several industry leaders, Korea’s largest banks, and multiple government entities.

ICON's network is being used by the Seoul Government in several key areas: certificate issuance, voting, and identification.

ICON leads the Digital ID space with the MyID Alliance, a  consortium of 62 industry giants and government agencies, the only one approved by the Financial Services Commission.

Some LOOPCHAIN USERS

In the coming months, ICON’s interoperability technology, Blockchain Transmission Protocol, will enable bridges across ICON's private and public networks, creating an unprecedented Network of Networks.

Key Features of the
ICON Network

Decentralization

With ICON's Delegated Proof-of-Contribution protocol enabling 22 fluid Public Representatives to produce and validate blocks while participating in governance, ICON is one of the largest decentralized networks in the world.

Interoperability

With interoperability technology aiming to bridge all blockchain networks, both private and public networks will be able to communicate through smart contracts on ICON’s Network of Networks.

Speed & Safety

ICON boasts blazingly fast 1300+ transactions within 2 second block confirmation times and is constantly evolving. ICON has recently received high praise from KAIST University for its recent industry wide consensus algorithm breakthrough, LFT2, which doubles speed without compromising safety.
