1. Proposal introduction (What)
We propose to be ICON’s agile infrastructure guardians and dApp enabler. Becoming a representative is not only about the ability to set up a good infrastructure to produce blocks but also about always available in case of any urgent situation. Also, building dApps and presenting it to the community is practical value-adding activity. Since we already have been doing it, we plan to expand it to ICON.
2. Motivation of the proposal (Why)
We are interested in building decentralized future with various blockchain networks. We have been supporting the EOS mainnet and sister-chains. Having said that, we are expanding to various DPOS based blockchain ecosystem as we believe blockchain projects with scalability can make a difference.
One of our focus areas was to give back to the EOS.IO ecosystem by incubating promising projects, such as Lumeos. We leveraged on our networks, technical and business expertise to help a number of early stage projects. This experience offered our team the opportunity to sharpen our skills within the dApp ecosystem; also allowing us to identify and resolve issues that dApp teams are encountering. With that experience, we have set up another entity called RocketBC and have been building dApps. Our future is in BUIDLing meaningful decentralized applications ourselves.
3. Execution plan of the proposal (How)
After setting up a node and become a representative on ICON, we are planning to expand our products into different blockchain ecosystems. Among the different products we are building, we have a dApp project called GIVLY, a decentralized social funding platform. It would be a good opportunity for us to onboard token holders in ICON ecosystem to become donors and workers.
4. Expected timeline of the proposal (When)
We are planning to set up a node in June. And any product side decisions will follow after July.
