  • ICON is pursuing to improve its documentation and commentary between codes for an enhanced level of open-source.

  • Better incentives governance and funding mechanisms for ICONists contribution to the network.

  • Blockchain Transmission Protocol: This allows the transfer of value and information between different blockchains. Basically, more interoperability. These blockchains will help users to interconnect and communicate via ICON Network.

  • Sidechain: Improving Scalability and implementing interchain and governance to create the true ICON Republic. This sidechain will be used by external DApps developers as an execution environment to focus more on improving the system. It is a separate world that does not affect the main chain and helps the main icon network to focus more on interchain and governance transactions.
