Greetings ICONists,

ICON TX Challenge officially began on June 3rd, and it has successfully generated 60M+ transactions in merely 24 days, which was very effective in stress testing ICON’s network and proving the performance of the network before the decentralization. In addition, the TX Challenge has successfully brought 240+ blockchain-based services on the ICON network. We are aware that we have made few mistakes along the way, but we hope to learn from these mistakes and host better developer-focused initiatives going forward.

We sincerely appreciate all the interests from the community so far and are excited to announce the official schedule for ICON’s Got Talent.
