Pocket/Figment P-Rep to airdrop new POKT token to the ICON community to launch ICON-DI
The ICON Decentralized Infrastructure (ICON-DI) is the largest development initiative proposed by any P-Rep, which decentralizes how DApps connect with the ICON network while generating rewards, and now Pocket/Figment will be airdropping the POKT token to jumpstart ICON Citizen Node adoption. POKT is a new utility token being released in 2020 to monetize decentralized blockchain infrastructures and will be the core reward of ICON-DI. ICONists can receive POKT airdrop ahead of its public launch for free by supporting ICON DApps with an ICON-DI Node.
A Free ICON-DI Node for ICONists
ICON-DI, ICON Citizen Nodes, and POKT all work together to create a balanced ecosystem. Here is how they work together:
- An ICON Citizen Node joins ICON-DI by running an ICON-DI Node
- ICON-DI Node owners stake a required amount of POKT to begin servicing ICON DApps
- An ICON-DI Node receives POKT rewards each time an ICON DApp uses it to connect to the ICON network
By participating in the ICON-DI Airdrop Program, Pocket/Figment will airdrop the required POKT for immediate staking, bypassing the need for ICONists to buy POKT for their ICON-DI Node. These ICONists will be ready to generate rewards from Day 1 for free. This is Pocket/Figment’s way of rewarding those that contribute to ICON’s decentralization.
Join the ICON-DI Airdrop Program
ICON-DI Airdrop Program will only be available to an estimated 500 ICONists (the exact number is subject to change). ICONists can compete in a “first come, first serve” race to be an eligible airdrop recipient. Let’s get ICON-DI to 500 nodes as quickly as possible!
How to ensure your spot in ICON-DI Airdrop Program:
- Run an ICON-DI Node in Q1 of 2020 (more info coming)
- Pass ICON-DI network tests for an allotted period of time (more info coming)
- Join the Pocket/Figment Telegram channel to get first hand information and updates
Though anyone will be able to participate ICON-DI after it’s launch, there are the advantages of ICON-DI Airdrop:
- Receive free airdrop of POKT with token launch in 2020 (no POKT purchase required)
- Generate POKT rewards from day 1 of launch
- Be part of decentralizing ICON’s DApp ecosystem
Pocket/Figment is committed to making ICON DApps fully decentralized and offering an ecosystem that rewards ICON Citizen Nodes. ICON-DI is not just an upgrade to decentralizing ICON DApps, but allow the ICON community to participate in the ICON network and monetize their own Citizen Nodes. The ICON-DI Airdrop Program is Pocket/Figment’s way of rewarding the ICON community for expanding the security of the ICON network through ICON-DI.

EDIT: Wording has been changed to embrace a pure “first come, first serve” mechanism. First qualified ICON-DI Nodes that pass network tests will be first in line for the POKT airdrop.
