Since then, ICON has seen a series of developments which include getting selected by the metropolitan government of Seoul as an operator of Seoul’s standard blockchain platform for ‘Seoul Blockchain Demonstration Project’.In May this year, ICON partnered with TRIVE to create an educational ecosystem with a focus on blockchain technology. As a part of the collaboration, both entities will work on co-developing blockchain courses which will be included in TRIVE’s programming schools.In June, Binance had announced that it would be swapping ICON’s ICX ERC-20 tokens for the mainnet ICX, five months after the release of the mainnet. ICON recently revealed that the official token swap for the ERC20 ICX Token had closed. The other exchanges which supported the token swap were OKEx, Upbit, Bithumb, Huobi, DragonEx, Bitrue, Gate.io, and WazirX.ICON has also been discussing the possibilities of making Jeju the blockchain hub of Korea with the Jeju Governer. Earlier in October, Park Won-soon, the mayor of Seoul, announced a five-year plan to invest $108 million and develop the city as a blockchain-powered smart city. The mayor also suggested the use of the S-Coin within administrations of the Seoul Metropolitan Government.
