South Korea’s leading blockchain network ICON has announced a partnership with BAND protocol.

The partnership will provide ICON developers with complete access to the BandChain decentralized oracle network to utilize various data and price feeds.

Dapps and DeFi ecosystems have to rely on accurate price and data feeds, or oracles, to function.

Band Protocol is an emerging decentralized platform that aggregates and connects real-world data to smart contracts.

ICON is rooted in South Korea while shaping itself as the blockchain developer for the government.

The platform operates a network of established enterprises and government agencies and provides blockchain solutions and development to suit their needs, including:

  • banks
  • telecoms companies
  • healthcare providers

Through its technology arm, ICONLOOP, it has worked on digitizing national identity authentication and decentralized passports.

  • Google Cloud
  • Binance
  • Matic Network
  • Ethereum Classic
  • 0x Project
