ICON Boosts With New Partnerships, ICONex Android Wallet, And More
In the past two months, ICON has struggled to make new partnerships and reach out connections to spread its Republic of Blockchain networks of services. Accordingly, ICON teamed up with Line, Deloitte, and Carboneum, and, in the meantime, they also launched ICONex Android Wallet.

ICON teams up with Carboneum
Carboneum is a social trading platform based on a blockchain developed on ICON blockchain. ICON partnered with Carboneum to support their network development and offer strategic support.
ICON built a business relationship with Deloitte
ICON and Deloitte signed an MOU (memorandum of understanding) on June 8th and set up the foundation for a joint project regarding the development and commercialization of blockchain projects.

ICON will soon switch its ERC-20 token ICX from the Ethereum (ETH) network to its mainnet. This swap would be an enormous leap forward for ICON and its ICX cryptocurrency.
On the other hand, the partnerships present here are just the beginning because once ICON the tokens swap is fulfilled, ICON will target more dealt with its industry-specific apps dedication to financial services, securities, hospitals, and universities.
