ICON ($ICX) continues to expand its reach across the world. Technical and social progress is being made daily as the already strong community continues to grow! I was interested to take a deeper look into the tweets about $ICX (which tags the ICX ticker on twitter). I explored the tweets over the past 7 days. I found the results very interesting. They show that ICON has far reach but also compelling in that we need to continue to work to expand ICON globally and to more diverse audiences (gender, age, etc). Fig. 1 shows the associated tags and emojis included with $ICX tweets. It is fitting that #ICONProject and helloiconworld are at the center (larger and closer to the center indicate a higher use).
I looked into the background of tweets including $ICX. This demographic data is shown in Fig. 2. The results showed young males comprised the majority of the spectrum. Additionally, most of the conversations were in the English language (this is also reinforced with the geographical data, shown later). I was pleased to see many different occupations included. I think the lack of diversity shows we need to continue to work hard to reach new audiences! Also, the age gap perhaps reinforced the fact that most cryptocurrency applications are not well adopted — younger users tend to be more interested in new technology. I think diversification will improve as cryptocurrency applications become more seamless, tranparent, and easy to use.
The majority of $ICX tweets are taking place in the United States — part of this could also be attributed to the fact that the Twitter platform is widely used in the United States and not used in every Country. South Korea and countries in Europe also area significant part of the $ICX community. Also, it is worth noting that we see Venezuela and the Philippines. I think this could be attributed to Espanicon and ICON Pilipinas, which is great to see those expansions of this ecosystem! $ICX does have a global presence and I’m confident it will continue to grow.
I hope you enjoyed this article! I thought it was interesting to see how wide ICON’s reach it, but also compelling to show that we need to work to expand ICON reach globally viaTwitter.
This data was compiled using Talkwalker. The tweets were explored for the past 7 days with respect to the $ICX ticker. Not everyone uses this ticker when talking about ICON (if you don’t, you should).
