Team introduction

Sharpn is a registered French startup focused on Blockchain technology. We are deeply convinced that decentralization philosophy will play a major role in the world of tomorrow. We want to bring the tools to the general public to enable widespread adoption.

Our motto: no need to understand TCP/IP protocol to use the Internet, so it should not need to understand all the subtleties of distributed ledger technology to benefit from the Blockchain.

Our first product, Certiv , will allow institutions, universities and training centers to issue professional certifications on the Blockchain with extreme simplicity. We're expecting to release soon and will integrate ICON certification shortly after launch. Stay tuned and long life to ICON!

 

I Our proposals , mindset and objectives

We have a mission: to bring an affordable user experience to the world of blockchain and crypto-currency. In our opinion, this is the least advanced aspect when compared to the incredible technological innovations that are present in this field.

Our main mission is oriented towards the following areas: Block production, ICON growth and adoption, Governance and Dapp affordability. As Dapp developers , we are also well aware of the challenges and problems that exist in both the developer and user communities. We want to provide a critical perspective in order to optimize Icon in this area.

We will regularly audit ICON on all its possible uses and on all their processes. Here are the points we will audit:

  • Experiences and affordability of smart contract development (SCORE & T-BEARS)

  • Quality and fluidity of the token integration process for commercial uses both online and offline

  • Project management, partnership and ecosystem health

We also want to be the best option for you as P-Rep , that is why we are developing a platform exclusive to our stakers, which will facilitate decision-making and communication with our network.

 

II Motivations of the proposal

We are convinced that our perspective will be an asset to ICON and its community. We are highly motivated to address unresolved issues, in order to allow organic growth at ICON... A large part of the team is very enthusiastic since the beginning of the ICON project.

As a DAPPS development studio, we are looking forward to the opportunity to be active in the ICONgress and to exchange with other members of this network

 

III Execution plan

As mentioned above, we have big plans for ICON. We intend to implement our proposals with the help of our team with various fields of expertise such as :

  • Modern web dev. (Basic integration, modern JS frameworks such as React or Vue, NodeJs etc.)

  • Smart contract dev (experience in Solidity and currently adapting to SCORE)

  • UX design and UX research

  • Graphic and UI design

  • Digital marketing, communication and business development

Our execution plan is divided into 3 parts:

Audit, consulting and development of ICON Audits covering development, token economy and ecosystem health will be carried out on a monthly basis. Their purpose will be to make recommendations to ensure mass adoption at ICON. Detailed reports will be published on our social networks and on our governance platform ! We will discuss them with the community and other P-REPS.

Service to the community We want to bring maximum value to the community, we are developing our staking platform that will allow ICONists to consult our reports, participate in governance through a decentralized voting system and exchange with the entire community !
