PROPOSAL & MOTIVATION
1. Proposal Introduction
– Blockchain technology in people’s daily life
SOMESING is an online karaoke platform based on Icon Network. It is aiming for a decentralized service where any sing-lovers can enjoy singing ‘for free’ and their songs become worth as they are rewarded by a fair distribution system.
SOMESING makes it easy for anyone around the world to easily use blockchain in their daily life with ‘Hand-Carry Karaoke’, SOMESING App, which is easy and fun to use.
The SOMESING team has a better understanding of the meaning of ICONSENSUS, a journey towards popularizing blockchain technology.
As a P-rep, SOMESING team is standing on ICON’s side for decentralization of ICON Network and it intends to contribute in various ways such as maintaining stability of ICON Network, proving the scalability of ICON Network and differentiated education.
2. Motivation of the proposal
SOMESING is our own solution of those questions such as ‘How we can do to make many people naturally use blockchain, not for investment like bitcoin, but in their everyday life?’ and ‘What we can do to create a real decentralized world?’.
The decentralized autonomy and security that many ‘Trustless Nodes’ have dreamed of is under resistance.
Therefore, in order to realize the popularization of the blockchain, it is necessary to cooperate with those who worry about same issues to solve the facing problems. By joining ICONSENSUS, we would like to act as a companion as well as a supporter in the journey that will not be just easy as follows.
– Blockchain that quickly spreads by penetrating into everyday life
: We sing every day. And the SOMESING team intends to naturally connect these routines with blockchain to speed up the influx of participants, blocks, and real users that can expand the network based on the chain.
– Blockchain that is easy to use for anyone in the world
: SOMESING’s step started in Korea will go beyond Asia and lead to Europe, Oceania and the Americas. The SOMESING’s step that can be easily used by minimizing the usage constraints will play a big role in global expansion of ICON Node.
– Blockchain where everyone in the ecosystem can be rewarded
: SOMESING is a platform where everyone including singers as well as listeners can be rewarded. Ultimately, SOMESING will increase the value of ICON Network through user-oriented reward designing.
ACTION ITEMS & TIMELINE
3. Execution plan of the proposal
1) Maintaining stability of ICON Network
As a block producer of ICON network, which is the base of P-rep, SOMESING will contribute to maintaining network through block generation and verification, and to maintain network security and data governance. We will also build a server infrastructure for each of the global major sites based on our global service expansion and ensure that ICON Network can achieve stable service.
2) Proving the scalability of ICON Network
We will demonstrate the scalability of the ICON network by increasing the number of ICX wallet users and the number of SSX token users as the number of SSX tokens on the ICON network increases.
a) Usability: the service that converts non-blockchain user into on-blockchain user and used in real life
b) Scalability: proof of scalable network through active transaction of SSX token through ICON Network
c) Reliability: secure rewards and trust in SSX token-related smart contracts through transparent governance systems
3) Problem solving education and building blended learning process
We will implement the followings to cultivate contents and professional manpower through building education process for blockchain and ICON Network.
– We will provide differentiated education to nurture professional manpower through video and voice related technology, which is the core of SOMESING service, and HRD expertise personnel.
– We will build a blended learning process that can link case based education and ON / OFF line education for problem solving so that we can develop the ability to solve problems of real business rather than simple theoretical education.
– For Knowledge Transfer, we will visualize or podcast the training contents so that we can learn freely from space and time constraints.
