Approval pending on revised conditions

Review Comments

  • Thank you for your proposal and we are excited to welcome SesameSeed into the ICON Community
  • Our grant program includes 1M of delegation for teams working on grants and since you have been working for a long time on this project we will take that into consideration for the delegation part of the grant
  • We approve a 25k budget for building Unifi on ICON but for delegation 3M is too high and gives too much influence from ICON Foundation on ICON governance since we try to maintain a certain level of decentralization. That is why we typically do only 1M in delegation to any single team. We will approve the 25k budget + 1M in delegation for 6 months to represent the amount of time it took to build and plan Unifi Protocol

Next Procedure

ICON Foundation provided the Initial Review Result Comments on the proposal. Grants recipients will respond to the Foundation’s response. Depending on your comments, the foundation will provide the Final Review Result Comments.


Good news.
Have been supporting Sesameseed for 2 years now and they’re a great team.
Looking forward to the collaboration, UniFi being implemented on Icon, and for ICX to be added to the multichain staking coin SEED.
Good times ahead



Thank you so much for the Approval pending conditions.

As our community and some of the ICON team is aware of we’ve been excited to discuss integrating ICON with the Sesameseed and Unifi Ecosystem for some time.

We understand the current requirements of delegation and believe your proposal is valid. We’re excited to move forward as detailed above so that we can demonstrate to the ICON community what Sesameseed can do and the quality of Defi that Unifi Protocol can bring!

Thank you again for your consideration, we’re excited to onboard!

Juliun, Sesameseed and Unifi Protocol
