  • Continue research on other potential regional languages in the Indian Subcontinent for viability in use for ICON’s promotion.
  • Intend to attend all Governance and Community meeting.
  • We do not intend to withdraw any ICX earned as P Rep rewards. All node running and paid ad expenses will be managed as additional investment for the node (to be claimed later).
