The ICI Bucharest (ICI) utilization as a catalyst for growth
On June 14, 2022, Elrond on their official publication made an announcement that their blockchain would be utilized by ICI Bucharest (ICI).
Specifically, Romania’s National Institute for Research and Development In Informatics will be building two specific products on top of Elrond.
These include an institutional non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace as well as a decentralized domain name system (DNS).
Both of these services are being built on the specific blockchain network due to its ability to speed up transactions through the sharding process.
ICI was originally founded in 1970 and is conducting government-sponsored research in the field of information technology in Romania.
These initiatives, according to the Elrond publication, are the first of their kind within the European Union.
A use-case for the NFT marketplace is to digitize, access, transfer and store official documents, as well as property deeds or a variety of certificates through a decentralized blockchain identity.
They will also be leveraging Elrond’s network of 3,200 validators to overcome security vulnerabilities surrounding legacy DNS and TLD systems.
All of this has the potential to boost the value of the EGLD token.
