South Korea based P-Rep candidate DE-LIGHT is here to share their blockchain expertise and explain why ICONists should vote for them. Get to know the node operators behind big blockchain projects in our latest P-Rep Profiles.

1. Tell us about your team. 

DE-LIGHT is a technology-centric team at one of the leading blockchain companies in Korea. We strive to research and develop technology that supports world-class protocols by providing the capability to rapidly build, deploy, and operate stable infrastructure for blockchains. The team is composed of senior software engineers who each bring over 10 years of experience in the field of IT and blockchain development. We are currently running node operations for decentralized networks such as Terra, Orbs, and Orbits. Our experience in blockchain infrastructure, governance, and community building will be helpful to build a decentralized ecosystem.

2. Why would you like to become an ICON P-Rep? 

Our team has a strong belief in ICON’s vision as a blockchain platform. ICON is already recognized for its technology and for partnering its decentralized network across various blockchain projects in Korea. We are certain that ICON will grow into one of the greatest global blockchain platforms. The role and responsibility of nodes as well as ICON’s efforts are very important to expand decentralized networks. Our team truly believes in ICON’s vision and believes that strong competencies are required to be an ICON P-Rep. DE-LIGHT aims to become the best P-Rep partner.

3. Why should the voters vote for YOU? 

DE-LIGHT is composed of members who each have over 10 years of experience in their fields of software engineering and business development. All members are highly active in the blockchain industry in Korea and globally. Our senior engineers, who have previously developed at the operating system level, have a deep understanding of blockchain’s core and its operation. They are running nodes and studying up-to-date technology in order to develop new protocols and platform applications. Our senior business managers have worked at global companies and can grasp the key trends and use cases in blockchain. As advisors, they can bring key insights for blockchain governance and community. To conclude, DE-LIGHT is the best team to operate a stable node and rapidly apply new technology.  

4. What do you like about ICON? What sets it apart from other blockchain platforms? 

As we’ve stated before, we believe ICON is the best platform to build a decentralized ecosystem. Loopchain, which is the core of ICON, is already recognized for its application with many companies, schools, and government institutions. With the efforts of remarkable engineers and advisors, ICON successfully launched its public mainnet. The Foundation and ICONists have been making consistent effort to build its community since then. We are motivated by all aspects of ICON’s efforts, which will bring ICON community members closer together as well as expand the decentralized ecosystem

5. How do you envision a decentralized ICON network? Why is decentralization important? 

In the coming future, decentralization will be very important. Everything is connected and borders between nations are becoming more open. Centralized systems where all information and transactions are handled by a single entity is counter to the vision of a hyper connected world. Blockchain is the most effective tool to find trust in a trustless society. A decentralized network will play a big part in the transfer of ownership of data to people and connect them without limitations.
