ICST is a decentralized platform designed for the trading of personal creative content and skills. We are building an open, transparent, and efficient ecosystem utilizing the power of blockchain technology to give control back to content creators around the world, so they can directly publish, promote, and trade their content with consumers. ICST is applicable to all existing platforms willing to incorporate the ICST exchange protocol in their business model.
Our current content creation industry needs a significant upgrade. ICST plans to revitalize this industry through the following:
Improve the income ratio of content and skill producers to make their services more equitable.
Integrating directly with existing social media platforms to reduce costs and enable broader content sharing across the world.
-Capitalizing on the new C2B2C (Consumer-Blockchain-Consumer) business model to replace the traditional C2B2C (Consumer-Business-Consumer) and ultimate bring more revenue to content producers.
-Giving content producers more exclusive control to their content rights and how they publish, promote, and share it.
-Reducing transaction fees, improving the customer experience through a built-in rating system, and increasing revenue for producers.
ICST is a utility token necessary for making transactions on the platform. Content producers who share services or resources on the platform will be rewarded with tokens. In the future, ICST will be used to facilitate transactions on StarMaker’s decentralized exchange.
-Every quarterly net profit from StarMaker will be used to buy back ICST coins.
-An enormous userbase of over 50 million users at launch.
-Completely transparent system for content producers to track their revenue.
-Token discount mechanism
-A sound management system for content producers.
No, ICST tokens are all pre-mined. “Miners” on the ICST platform are those who provide computing resources, new services, or ready-to-deploy applications. People who contribute their resources or services will be rewarded with tokens.
ICST is a platform service, rather than a standalone software package or set of APIs. ICST is combining the power of blockchain technology with cloud computing to create an incentive-driven marketplace that solves issues related to the current content creation industry.
ICST is NOT an open-source platform or project. However, we will open source several critical protocols and their references as we reach certain milestones. Even though ICST is not an open-source project, it is built with open standards. This platform is being built with app develops’ needs in mind. Along with open-sourcing our core components, we will be actively contributing to a variety of blockchain technology communities.
No. ICST is essentially a computing platform that will allow developers to build and deploy blockchain applications. ICST itself is powered by built-in blockchain technology.
Yes. With ICST, developers can create custom tokens that inherit all the features of our native ICST token. Soon, developers will be able to make their own token generation event after they have built and deployed applications on the ICST platform.

The People-Joy Foundation plans to release 3 billion ICST in total, with 900 million in the private token sale. The use of funds will be spread as follows:
- Development of ICST blockchain = 40%
- Research and Development for expansion and migration from StarMaker to ICST = 25%
- Research and development of ICST platform = 20%
- Promoting the ICST protocol to applications on other platforms = 10%
The initial release of 3 billion tokens will proceed as follows:
1. Financing: we plan to raise 30,000 ETH, 10,000 of which will be raised from cornerstone investors (1 ETH = 36,000 ICST) and 20,000 of which will be raised from the private token sale (1 ETH = 27,000 ICST).
2. The number of released tokens = 3 billion.
3. The initial release = 30%
Users participating in transactions from the StarMaker platform will have access to a discounted fee (rates are shown in the following table) if they hold the ICST currency when they need to pay a transaction fee.
Repurchase plan: After we deploy ICST onto the StarMaker platform, every quarterly net profit from StarMaker will be used to buyback ICST coins. These coins will then be destroyed. Repurchased records will be announced as soon as they’re complete. Users can check the records over the ICST blockchain, which will guarantee continued transparency throughout the process. This plan will be in effect until 900 million ICST are destroyed.
ICST Vesting Plan for the Team:
Initial Release: 25% (450 million)
After 1 year: 25% (450 million)
After 2 years: 25% (450 million)
After 3 years: 25% (450 million)
In the future, ICST will be used in the decentralized exchange of StarMaker. It will become a core component of the platform’s operation.
