ICON 2.0: BATANG
This month, we announced our next significant technical advancement — ICON 2.0: BATANG, that we have been working on for a year.
We are completely overhauling the ICON mainnet launched in 2018, and ICON 2.0 will come standard with interoperability features to support and power cross-chain DeFi solutions. Further details on the ICON 2.0 BATANG feature set can be found here.
Goloop core modules are complete, and implementations for enterprise use-cases have already begun. Additionally, we have started working on the public modules to support the ICON 2.0 protocol.
Currently, we are planning to release the alpha version of the ICON 2.0 implemented Goloop by Feb 2021 and to complete all data migration work by June 2021. Note, the timeline and details are subject to change depending on the technical difficulty and resource plan. Users and developers will not need to take any action for the migration process.
