Just how REKT’d are ICOs?

A few interesting points from some research I did for an upcoming post. These numbers are based on monthly closing candles on Coinbase and Bitstamp and don’t reflect the exaggerated highs and lows of this manipulated market.

Zimerman plays Chopin’s Ballade No. 1 in G minor →

November 16, 2018

I’m a huge fan of Krystian Zimerman, and I think he’s the best pianist in the world. I spent my high school and college years listening to this recording of Chopin’s Ballade No. 1 in G minor and somehow never came across this video. If you enjoy this video, consider picking up the CD issued by Deutsche Grammophon. This breathtaking performance deserves that full 16 bit/44.1 kHz resolution. Excuse me while I go watch this ten more times before bed.

A sea of faces 📷

November 15, 2018

Intersections in Shibuya always look something like this. Men, women, and children hit the pause button on their lives to wait for the traffic light to turn green.

ICON Foundation addresses the community →

November 15, 2018

ICON Foundation:

ICONLOOP is the company contractually obliged to build out the ICON public chain, and a leader in implementing private enterprise blockchain solutions. The ICON Project was created to meet the demand for interchain and natural movement of the market from private ICONLOOP blockchain networks to the ICON public blockchain. The ICON Council Members consider interoperability between private ICONLOOP networks to be the next critical step for the ICON public chain, and resources are being allocated accordingly to reflect this. The ultimate goal is to connect Private ICONLOOP networks to ICON via the ICON Nexus in order to interoperate with each other and the public chain, and each of these transactions will require ICX for transaction fees.

This is a great response to all the FUD that’s been going around lately. ICON has been very transparent with their plans since the beginning, and the overall strategy is very simple to understand. At its core, ICON is a blockchain project centered around interoperability. By definition, an interoperability layer requires other systems to interface and exchange information with. Without third parties to connect, ICON’s most important use case is rendered useless.
