Specific details for what increased delegation will do for your team

Everstake contributions will consist of two categories:

ICON Fault-tolerant cluster

We always try to implement the best industry practices in all things. A team of our experienced DevOps engineers works around the clock, ensuring that all systems are up and running smoothly.

Everstake going to create a public fault-tolerant cluster for the ICON blockchain during June - July.

Cluster for mainnet will consist of 4 full archive nodes behind a load balancer, and split traffic between them, in case of disconnection of one of the nodes the other will change it automatically, it will lead to fault tolerance.

By leveraging backup power supplies, backups, monitoring, and alerting systems, we deliver high uptime and complete reliability without a single point of failure.

Social Media Campaign / Outreach to the German-speaking community

This initiative aims to raise awareness of the ICON Project within the German-speaking community and accelerate the development/adoption of dapps/games and wallets and also the overall growth of its community.

The German-speaking community in our opinion is still underrepresented but with Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg it combines a population of over 110 million people. (not counting the ones that live abroad)

Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Austria are well known as one of the most crypto-friendly nations of the world and with their favorable legislation, mass adoption will happen a lot faster compared to other countries. With the following social media activities, we will target specifically German-speaking crypto and blockchain enthusiasts and also average people who are interested in learning about the benefits of ICONs technology and its ecosystem.
