ICON , ICX(TOKEN) IN A NUTSHELL / UPCOMING EVENTS
ICX -Icon Is supposed to be asian ethereumm , Specifically for the korean markets. Given their huge population , and a few other interesting notes. It pretty much hit binance last week at 2$, surged today above $4 for the first time. It usually was between 3-4 for the last week. I wish i had more but #70 is a start. To my knowledge there are not any mining pools setup for this coin either, adding to its rarity for north america.
I did not realize that financial institutions had a partnership with ICX, it should be bigger than ripple for wide stream market adoption in asia, linkedin is a pretty huge business partnership too.
wait for another dip under $4, or get in above $4, i still think it is a great buy.
