[Contribution Proposal] ICON Network integration on State of the DApps

  1. Title: ICON Network integration on the State of the DApps platform

  2. Project Category: Community Activities

  3. Project Description

The proposal consists of integrating ICON Network on the State of the DApps platform, alongside other already integrated projects such as Ethereum, NEO, EOS, Loom, etc. After the integration will be over, all the ICON DApps can register/ be included on the platform under the ICON Network section, free of charge.

State of the DApps is one of the biggest platforms that gathered existing decentralized applications in one place, in order to facilitate the access to the newest and most innovative projects. It is the place to-go for every user that wants to find relevant DApps and the according information about them.

Reasons for choosing State of the DApps above other platforms

  • According to their team, the platform has almost 100k unique visitors/ month on the website, which means that ICON Network will greatly benefit in terms of reaching a targeted audience interested in decentralized applications (adoption);
  • State of the DApps is currently ranking on the first place on Google organic search for the keyword „blockchain dapps“ and on the first results page for „decentralized applications“. This means that if a user types these keywords on Google, he will receive the State of the DApps platform as one of the first options. This could bring a lot of new users, not only to the ICON Network, but to the ICON Network DApps, contributing to the growth of the whole ICON Ecosystem;
  • After the integration of ICON, all ICON DApps can submit their projects to the platform free of charge;
  • The platform offers qualitative customer support;
  • They have 11.3 K followers on Twitter, audience which will be used for promotion of the ICON integration;
  • As Chainode Capital P-Rep team, when we first joined the network almost one year ago, one of our main contribution proposals was to increase the awareness around the ICON Network and the ICON Network Ecosystem. We already built the iconecosystem.io platform that hosts all the relevant DApps and tools built on ICON, and we believe that facilitating the integration of ICON Network on the State of the DApps platform is perfectly aligned with our mission within the ICON project.
  1. Project Duration (Maximum of 6 months)
