With the launch of ICON 2.0 right over the horizon, we’re getting closer to the official launch of BTP, the Blockchain Transmission Protocol. BTP is the keystone of the ICON project’s promise of interoperability, and it’s what many ICX holders have waited years for.

Despite that anticipation, BTP remains a…

Back in June, in surprising fashion, ICON announced that the ICON ecosystem would be creating a new Layer 1 blockchain called “ICE.”

I wrote a lengthy piece back then explaining the reasons why ICON decided to take this step, which I encourage you to read. …
