It is not only about being financially decentralized through Bitcoin, but it is also about trying to create an entire decentralized network of different blockchain communities and sectors for a new era of decentralization to come to fruition.
ICON has decided to try to create this blockchain architecture in a way that further forces more significant decentralization and community involvement.
If blockchain is the answer to a decentralized society, it is still in its embryonic stages and needs a boost towards a new heading.
Blockchain decentralization can be a relatively insular and isolated undertaking as it stands, with proof-of-work a race to get the next block rather than active involvement in a community.
Having these P-Reps in the network hands the control of the blockchain architecture to the people who are using it, they are incentivized to advance the network.
It is through this avenue that ICON hopes it can create a fully decentralized blockchain architecture, and that it can advance blockchain decentralization to its full potential.
Currently, the possibility is there with blockchain, but because of other factors, decentralization is usually a front.
With decentralization at its core, with a voting system aiming to include all corners of the ICON network, and P-Reps set to be fairly chosen, the network should obtain a far higher degree of decentralization than has been seen in these early stages of blockchain development.
ICON can connect independent blockchains without the use of additional third-party intermediaries.
Various blockchains can communicate with each other through the ICON platform.
