ICON has just released a recap of its achievements and results from the third quarter of this year. The update takes a look at five key performances: loopchain use-cases, MOU/Partnerships, ecosystem, development, and events.

loopchain, ICON’s core engine technology will enable the development of several major blockchain business models across automobile, finance and voting industries. Amongst others, ICON signed a MOU to cooperate with SK Holdings C&C in finance, insurance, banking and more.

With the official launch of the first ICX Station and the Developer’s portal, opportunities are aplenty to develop on top of the ICON network. DApps have the chance to go global and developers are able to share open source, news and updates amongst themselves, thus growing the ecosystem and community.

On the development front, ICON released many important updates, most notably the MainNet 3.0 Version update, and Yellow Paper. ICON’s attendance at several high profile blockchain events, including Upbit Developer Conference in Jeju and the upcoming San Francisco Blockchain Week, is also indicative of its prominence and commitment to “hyperconnecting the world”.

“The innovations of the third quarter of 2018 have laid a strong groundwork for the ICON Ecosystem. We look to the fourth quarter as a tipping point, in which we can utilize this groundwork to reach our full potential”, says the official statement.

The Iconist looks forward to what is ahead for Q4 and will keep on sharing updates on ICON and its ecosystem. Stay tuned!
