January Update from Blockmove

Feb 9 · 4 min read

The Holiday Season was a bit quieter for Blockmove but development has ramped up again! This update covers all the work we’ve done since our previous update…

Like our work? Vote for Blockmove to help build more awesome tools for ICON

In our previous update, we promised to keep moving ahead with Iconwat.ch, a better, faster, modern, mobile-friendly Block Explorer for ICON and its API, Ganymede. We also mentioned a few features that will be implemented in the very near future. Namely:

  1. Wallet functions ⚙️
  2. Localisation ⚙️
  3. Documentation
  4. “easy ICON” — (simplifying smart contract validation, deployment)
Wallet functions on Iconwat.ch (coming soon!)

Development Progress

We are very excited to report that things are moving quite fast with development! We keep adding new stuff every week, sometimes even on a daily basis! We also continuously improve present features to create the best possible user experience.


Localisation is very important to help spread ICON. 🇨🇳🇹🇼Chinese🇲🇴🇭🇰🇸🇬 and 🇰🇷Korean🇰🇷 are now live on Iconwat.ch — helping ICON reach two of the most important blockchain markets.

And we’d like to thank Teams ICXStation and Rhizome for their precious help! We couldn’t do this without them!

Convert Tool

Did you know that the smallest unit of ICX is called “loop”? One ICX consists of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that’s 18 zeros!!) loops! If you ever need to decipher any of the cryptic units used on the ICON blockchain, our Convert Tool is here to help!

Charts Charts Charts! Now that’s something all Iconists can love! How many transactions are processed daily? What’s the daily volume of ICX transferred? How many wallets have been created? Maybe just looking for current staking data? We got all of this and much much more!

ⓘ If you need some other chart, don’t be shy! Feel free to request it in our telegram group!

Daily Transactions Charts — this and more live at Iconwat.ch

And … minitools

No month can go by without a brand spanking new Blockmove minitool! And this month’s pick is:

The ICON Vanity Address Generator

  1. for Nodejs: https://www.npmjs.com/package/icon-vanitygen
  2. for Python: https://github.com/eublockmove/icon-vanitygen-py

Now you can generate your own custom ICON address! Use our tool for either Python or Node.js to generate an address containing your custom string. You can use any character that ICON addresses are composed of:

  • Letters A-F
  • Numbers 0–9

The maximum length you can customise is 40 characters, but please keep in mind that anything above 6 characters can take a very long time!

Thank you!

And that’s a wrap for January! Thank for all your support and your kind remarks about our work! This really means a lot to us!

We are excited to keep you as a community informed of our development progress. You can stay tuned with our progress via our Telegram & Twitter.

Once more, we are committed to provide maximum transparency in this process. Thank you for your overwhelming support in our journey!
