ICON Development Update - January 2023
In January, the ICON team continued making progress on BTP and ICON 2.0. Work on the xCall service integration into IBC has commenced. We’d like to share our BTP 2.0 Milestones with our community. What stands out is that, as the BTP 2.0 protocol is being built, the team is also developing two key integrations: BSC and ETH 2.0.
In the coming month, we aim to publish a milestone board, similar to the BTP milestones, for the IBC integrations work.
