This is the Korean contender for top blockchain and it has numerous advantages to both Ethereum and NEO. Similar to Neo, or IBM’s Hyperledger, Icon is designed to be a large scale ecosystem. Their vision is to allow many different private and public blockchains to work together, such as universities, banks, hospitals, schools. The idea is that they can all share information together via Icon and other partners like Wanchain. Icon, however, doesn’t rely on mass adoption of blockchain apps like other speculative plays in the space right now.

So Icon itself will have a real world use case a lot sooner than some other projects in this largely speculative crypto world.
