Team Information

ICONTROL HQ: Space

ICONTROL is an agile team of product makers and an avid supporter of ICON network united to create useful products and contribute to the ICON ecosystem. The formation of ICONTROL team began with the question of 'what should be prepared for the ICON network to be first adopted in the coming Public Blockchain era?'. Creating and running scalable products has been something we've always done, and we know what to do for the job. ICONTROL team is composed of competent team members who have experience in backend technology, app development technology, efficient infrastructure design, and service operation for large-capacity processing. We will gather the competence of each team member, and build products with a large user base and lead the revival of ICON network with the aim of "Practicalization of Blockchain". Stay tuned for ICONTROL team's performance and journey.

Proposal

1. Proposal introduction (What)

We will develop and operate products to acquire large-scale users by utilizing blockchain engine development and service operation capabilities, and provide stable P-Rep nodes to the network. Additional revenue will be used to invest in infrastructure for reliable service operation, and collaboration with other P-Rep is also in place.

  • Product Contribution

    • Build useful products for the ICON ecosystem and holders, starting with the Mobile Multi Wallet service

    • Generate 100,000 daily transactions and discover ICX use case 

    • Develop and operate additional 'practical' products to promote ICON ecosystem growth

  • Network Contribution

    • Provides 24x7x365 Nonstop Block Production service

    • Prepare for operation failures with servers that accommodate 10G or more and a redundant configuration

    • Suggest performance improvement to other P-Reps for node operational stability

 

2. Motivation of the proposal (Why)

We believe in the potential of ICON network and Public Blockchain technology, and we’re willing to contribute to it with feasible plans and capabilities.

The formation of ICONTROL team began with the question of 'what should be prepared for the ICON network to be first adopted in the coming Public Blockchain era?'. We concluded that two things are needed for Mass Adoption of the ICON network. First, the emergence of end-user services with large numbers of users. The second is the reliability and scalability of the infrastructure that facilitates such activities.

If a blockchain-based service with a large number of users emerges and proves its success, visionary teams will try to participate in the ecosystem one after another, and various experiments occur continuously, and in the end, a virtuous cycle of the advent of successful service can be expected. For this, a solid infrastructure must be prepared, and the capacity and willingness of ecosystem participants to lead it to continuous improvement is necessary.

We will make the cornerstone ourselves. We aim to lay the foundation for various teams to join the ICON ecosystem and contribute to the vitalization of the network by leading the development/operation of ‘Winning Products’. In addition, we will share the operational experience with other P-Reps and contribute to enhancing network scalability and reliability by utilizing our infrastructure design/operation expertise.

 

 3. Execution plan of the proposal (How)

While operating the P-Rep node stably, we will develop and operate three ICON network-based Dapps. In the second half of 2020, we plan to launch mobile products (iOS/Android) to recognize our potential and launch additional services.
