The voters who use  ICON’s voting system will be rewarded via S-Coin, pegged at 1 S-Coin = 1 Korean Won during the demonstration.

April this year, ICON released its mainnet and shifted from the Ethereum network to their own blockchain network. The shift has been a great progression and has also led to the metropolitan government of Seoul to select them as the operator for the Seoul’s standard blockchain platform dubbed as  ‘Seoul Blockchain Demonstration Project’.

ICON collaborated with TRIVE in may to develop an educational ecosystem that is focussed on blockchain technology. The TRIVE’s programming schools will have co-developing blockchain courses developed by both the entities. Earlier in October, the mayor of Seoul, Park Won-soon, announced a five-year plan to invest $108 million in the development of the city as a blockchain-powered smart city. The mayor also suggested the use of the S-Coin within administrations of the Seoul Metropolitan Government.
