Delegated Proof of Contribution (DPoC)

    Delegated Proof of Contribution (DPoC) is a one-of-a-kind economic governance protocol that runs on the ICON Network and makes use of the ICON Incentives Scoring System (IISS). DPoC is a variant of Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) in that stakers delegate votes to block validation privileges, but DPoC sees ICX holders delegating to individuals who have demonstrated positive network participation rather than specific nodes. The elected entity then validates blocks on behalf of a delegate and earns crypto rewards as a result.
