Introduction 

We are a group of Icon community members that have been connected by our passion to empower the community. We strive to be a community focused ICON P-REP with open and transparent governance.

ICON REP is a community ICON P-REP that

  • is made up of community members that will focus on the everyday individual that holds an invested interested in the ICON network by holding ICX
  • represents the community on the ICON network with a community-based node
  • run stable and consistent node to ensure the integrity of the network
  • provides open, fair and transparent governance
  • develops ICON products that can be used by the community and stimulate ICX network growth
  • provides ICON tutorials and guides for the community
  • have meetups to grow the community network
  • we will strive to execute our Icon duties always with the community in mind, will always be "by the community for the community"

 

Motivation

Our main aim is to be ICON P-REP that represents the community on the network and to increase adoption to the masses. We believe mass adoption of blockchain is the future.  

 

Execution 

Our execution will revolve around the community and will be made up of the following pillars

  • Rewards - we believe to ICON hodlers should be rewarded to participate in the network. We will share the rewards earned from the node (block creation & verification) with the community. This will motivate higher participation in the network and attract more hodlers. 
  • Education - to ensure the community at large is up to date we strongly believe there must be a strong focus on education and spreading the word of ICON. In order to do this we will use several media channels to do this that includes twitter, reddit, YouTube, Facebook and others
  • Develop - we will develop applications that will help to provide transparency to the community in reward distribution, but also useful applications that will assist in ICON adoption
  • Infrastructure - to ensure the integrity of the network we will run one of the highest available nodes and ensure we provide consistent block creation. We will ensure we deploy a resilient infrastructure with sufficient backups to ensure we always have a node running 
  • Meetups - we will have meetups with the community to spread the word in multiple locations and provide a platform where the community can meet to share their passion of ICX

 

Expected timeline 

We believe actions speak louder than words, we therefore will start within the month to start building and showing the community value on our pillars

  • Education - this will start immediately and some content will start appearing as our journey as ICON P-REP continues
  • Develop - we have several ideas and as we get closer to P-REP elections we will release useful tools
  • Infrastructure - the tech is ready, we look forward to the TestNet and deploying a node asap to ensure we have extensive knowledge on the node
  • Meetups - as we get closer to P-REP elections there will be several meetups
  • Rewards - transparency on rewards will be key to gain confidence from the community, this will evolve as we get closer to P-REP with more updates that has the community’s best interest at heart

 

Conclusion

Vote and support ICON Nexus to keep the community alive in P-Rep elections.
