Specific details for what increased delegation will do for your team

The increased delegation will help us keep up with the various projects on which we are involved. It will help us in staying as a Main P-Rep, and to generate enough reward to fully support the ICON ecosystem.

First, we’re finishing our lossless staking lottery project; delegations will help us finance the development cost, testing, and eventually sponsor the first draws. We had the chance to be sponsored by a grant from Velic for this project, amounting to ICX 1,000,000 in the delegation. This grant is coming to an end at the end of the month, and we still have a few weeks of development work and testing to do.

In addition to that, we would like to organize ICON Europe events in the next months now that the pandemic has cooled down.

Another project we have in mind for the future is to prepare the public for the decentralization of the CPF, with a platform offering details about P-Reps, sponsoring, and offering a seamless application process.

Finally, there’s a lot going on with our content building, giveaways, and governance involvement. And because we plan to be a long-term contributor to the ICX ecosystem, we would like the opportunity to use a small part of our rewards in order to finance the increase of our self-bond.

Requested Amount
2,000,000 ICX
