ICON is often referred to as ‘The Korean response to Ethereum’. In China, the same nickname is given to the NEO platform, while in Russia, this is said about Waves.

The DevStamp conference will be conducted in less than a week, on December 18 in Seoul, hosted by the Federation of Science and Technology Societies of Korea. This is where ICON (ICX) will be one of the major attendees.

The program of the event for ICON

The company’s CTO, Edward Ryu, will present some materials on blockchain and ICON and take part in a panel talk. The presentation will be about the development of the platform in the future. ICON’s partner, Nomad Connection, will also attend.

Ryu will be talking about ICON’s new ecosystem for implementing smart contracts (“SCORE”) and will touch upon the transfer protocol BTP (Blockchain Transmission Protocol). This is a solution developed by the platform for communication between blockchains.

The Nomad Connection reps will teach masterclasses on the use of SCORE within the ICON platform, as well as teach how to make sample codes and use them directly on the TestNet of ICON.
