What is ICP?

ICP – standing for Internet Computer Protocol is a blockchain protocol that is an innovation upon normal blockchain networks. This protocol aims for combining the high security of blockchain technology and the high-speed data processing power of the Internet.

Computer Protocol uses smart contracts (or computer codes) to create a blockchain network with easy application and high scalability that serves as an agreement to trade cryptocurrencies among parties. The protocol intends to extend the functionality of the public Internet that it could host backend software on smart contract compatible and distributed networks. Instead of Proof-of-Stake like Ethereum or Proof-of-work like Bitcoin, ICP uses queries and calls.

ICP is developed by the Dfinity Foundation, a nonprofit organization located in Zurich, Switzerland. Dfinity Foundation is considered an emerging blockchain developer team. 

Is the ICP token a good investment?

ICP token is the native toke of ICP that is supposed to let users develop software or publish content on the Internet without using services from Facebook or Google. The protocol is considered a “hackproof platform” that reduces cost “dramatically“, and is supportive, according to Dfinity founder Dominic Williams. He said that ICP would intend to make the Internet space “fun again” by allowing users to have a “new open Internet”

Through the Network Nervous System (NNS) developed by the Dfinity Foundation, users and developers will have the power to decide who can access their data. As such, the information of dApps users will not be recorded by server owners, or server developers such as Google, and Facebook. It would be an outstanding point of Internet Computer since privacy violation has been a global issue. 

With a strong developer team and strong VC funding, ICP has been recognized in many countries at the time it was released. ICP token is believed to be a safe investment while its future prediction indicates profitability. 

However, it is necessary to consider Internet Computer’s competitors. Ethereum is the biggest competitor to ICP token with its more decentralization compared to ICP though it has a slower processing speed and lower capacity, according to Benzinga Money.
