What is ICON?
ICON (ICX) is a South Korean network launched in 2017. Its primary goal is to create a system for the integration of independent blockchains of any size. ICON’s ecosystem intends to service industries like government, health care and traditional finance, alongside cryptocurrency networks such as Ethereum. This will be achieved by connecting to nodes hosted on the ICON protocol.
The idea behind enhanced interoperability is to allow different industries to cooperate and conduct transactions on the same platform.
An individual can use their personal node to make blockchain transactions.An individual can connect to their bank’s community node to take out a smart contract home loan, which automatically and transparently adapts to market rates.Hospital nodes might connect across the world to immediately and securely communicate confidential patient information if someone is injured while travelling.
ICON (ICX) is in the top 1,000 cryptocurrencies in the world by market cap, valued at $156,898,938. The current price of ICON is $0.174758, which is -0.392% lower than yesterday.

What is Bnb?
Binance Coin (BNB) is the token native for Binance and its blockchain-based ventures. The coin can be used to interact with the Binance cryptocurrency exchange as well as the ever-evolving DeFi ecosystem on the Binance Smart Chain network.
On the Binance exchange, BNB provides users with discounts on trading fees, serves as a trading pair for coins and is used on the Binance Decentralized Exchange (DEX). Fees paid in BNB are periodically “burnt”, which means they are permanently removed from circulation, which in turn decreases the supply and theoretically increases the value. Binance will continue to burn coins until the supply is reduced from 200 million to 100 million.
BNB is also used on the exchange to participate in launchpad events, which are similar to Initial Coin Offerings (ICO).
On the Binance Smart Chain (a smart contract platform developed by Binance based on Ethereum’s codebase), BNB is used to pay gas fees and has a central role in many DeFi applications (dapps). In this way, it is very similar to the role of ETH on Ethereum.
For instance, users can deposit BNB to provide liquidity on the PancakeSwap DEX or be traded for BEP-20 tokens (The BSC version of ERC-20 tokens).
