ICONest is a service designed to simplify creating and developing dApp projects. Next to the fact ICON already announced a new wallet and a token swap, the team has also announced a partnership with the Loop project and six ICO’S that will be released on ICOnest.
Blue Whale, the first DApp built on ICON, is currently utilizing ICONest for their Token Sale. While the dApp teams partnered with ICON will be the first to use the ICONest service, it will eventually be open to the public, but at this stage, it is not. The official ICONest platform website will be released on the 11th of May.
The projects that have been announced so far are:
AD4th – A decentralized advertising platform that incorporates a real-time P2P reward system.
Blue Whale – A decentralized ecosystem for the self-employed that allows all participants to engage in a sharing economy and receive fair rewards.
Sentinel Protocol (UPPSALA) – A Security Intelligence Platform for Blockchain (SIPB) which aims to harness decentralization to provide cutting-edge security.
Silkroad – A platform that facilitates supply chain management and supports efficient and transparent history and purchasing management in the semiconductor industry.
Stove (Smilegate) – A next-generation global social game platform that allows for the production and distribution of a variety of digital contents. The project is backed by Smilegate, an extremely well established global online gaming company.
TINK – TINK or Trust Link is a distributed application that helps users to grow their social profile by allowing their friends to vote anonymously on their accounts. The Dev team is made up of Carnegie-Mellon alumni.
This could increase the demand for ICX because of the possibility to pay with ICX when participating in ICO’s on their ICO platform.
So far the ICON team has always been able to meet their deadlines and the ICONest was released on time as well.

- 2018. Q2 : ICX/ETH DEX, Public Channel
