What does a marketing company do when they’ve been intimately involved in a blockchain project for around two years?
Get even more involved, of course!
G3 Partners is proud to announce that we have launched a peer node on the ICON public chain. A peer node is a computer that can produce and validate blocks on a blockchain—in this case, ICON’s. Our node is for The Iconist, an online news media publication we have run for ICON since August 2018.
Furthermore — and even more exciting — we are running as a Public Representative candidate for the ICON Republic.
ICON Public Representatives (or P-Reps for short) are automatically appointed teams who run the top 22 nodes people have delegated the most of ICON’s cryptocurrency (ICX) to. P-Reps also earn regular ICX rewards based on how much is delegated to them, and are in charge of governance of the public chain. In ICON, delegated ICX is staked, meaning the owner of the cryptocurrency can withdraw their delegation or change their vote whenever they want.
This is exciting because it allows the general public to purchase ICX and then use it to invest in P-Rep teams that promise to use their ICX rewards to fund the best projects and programs. It’s the democratic process at its finest, hence why it’s called the ICON Republic. And with so many exciting projects with enormous future potential in the blockchain world, this democracy is one we are proud to be actively involved in.

Our campaign promise
At The Iconist, we offer a completely transparent and straightforward campaign platform: 100% of our ICX rewards go toward funding The Iconist news media site. That means that the more ICX is delegated to us, the more staff we can commit to the project, and the more ICON and blockchain news we can publish.
Though we have always pursued high journalistic standards, financial independence will grant us more latitude in what we write about. Our ultimate goal is Google News, to spread the word internationally about the great potential that blockchain has for benefiting life on Earth and all the ways the ICON Republic is contributing to that future, so that we can do our part in realizing ICON’s dream: Hyperconnecting the World.
Do you want to learn more?
Our full P-Rep proposal is up on the ICON.community website, where you can read about our platform in further detail. We also have a dedicated page up on The Iconist website, which displays how much ICX is delegated to us and shows exactly how these funds are used. Furthermore, if you have some ICX you’d like to delegate, you can vote for us using your ICONex wallet!
