ICON is a blockchain technology and network framework that wants to “Hyperconnect the world”.
It does by allowing independent blockchains to interact with each other through smart contracts. ICX
is the cryptocurrency native to the ICON network.
By connecting different blockchains with each other, ICON allows different governances of each chain to transact with one another without the need of intermediaries.
ICON also features its own decentralized exchange , in which it sets reserves of each independent blockchain currency that is connected to the ICON Republic.
As with Ethereum, developers are able to create and deploy dApps through the Nexus Public Channel, which are then listed on ICON’s dApp store.
