Many Web3 investors either don’t know about ICP or they only remember how its token price at launch was manipulated by FTX. However, in the 2 years since its mainnet launch, the ICP network has thrived and become a sleeping giant within web3!
ICP is a decentralized cloud network with advanced smart contracts that are capable of fully replacing AWS and other centralized hosting, data, & compute services within any Web3 Dapp tech stack. ICP smart contracts (canisters) can:
- Host frontends (serve websites) with 200ms latency.
- Execute Threshold ECDSA to directly sign transactions on the BTC & ETH networks.
- Make outbound HTTPS calls, removing the need for off-chain oracles.
- Store data for ~$5 per GB per year.
- Beat Cardano, Solana, Algorand, Avalanche, & Near on key performance metrics.
Dapps built on the ICP blockchain can provide user experiences that are indistinguishable from familiar web2 applications, such as this Reddit-style social media dapp called DSCVR which supports google login and has over 14k daily users.
Florida will host the 1st annual ICP Community Conference at the iconic Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where top web3 founders, investors, & influencers (including Blockchain Boy & Joshua Jake) will get together to explore the latest ICP innovations. Whatever blockchain you’re involved with, ICP can decentralize key components of your the dapp tech stack and there’s never been a better opportunity to build connections with top ICP builders!
“We are super excited for ICP to further establish its Florida footprint,” say Samuel Armes, Founder of the FBBA. “By holding their conference here in Miami, they are planting a flag in the most pro-web3 State in the United States. We are looking forward to the community coming to Florida and continuing to advance their protocol and community.”
