The Korean blockchain project ICON on Monday announced the launch date of the test network for the P-Rep nodes and announced the start of accepting applications for participation in testing.

P-Rep or “public representative” is the community-selected ICON node operator, whose functions are to produce blocks, verify transactions, and vote for proposals regarding network management.

The test network is designed for P-Rep candidates and will allow them to get acquainted with the technical status of the nodes, as well as take part in simulating the activity, which will be the key to long-term stability of the ICON network.

Currently, applicants are invited to apply for participation in testing. On April 30, a test network will be launched, to which the ICON team will provide access to those who can qualify.
