ICON, the Korean based project building a global decentralized network of independent blockchains has announced that the maintenance check of its testnet, which started last December, has been completed, and they have now successfully generated the genesis block of the ICON Mainnet and minted all ICX as projected.
The mainnet launch is a large step toward ICON achieving its vision. Network tests and monitoring will continue until the official opening of the mainnet for the ICX wallet release. The native ICX wallet called ‘ICONex’ is in the final steps of launching on the Chrome Web Store.
dApps can now be developed on top of the ICON network, the ICON team says they’re already helping several project teams to launch new services.
ICON will announce and showcase these projects at the ICON Annual Summit.
