In this section, we will examine how the market, with price changes, evaluates project progress. It seems important to us if the project is outside of the usual tide of crypto project prices. In order to make an appropriate peer comparison, we gauged the ICX (Icon) with 2100NEWS DA Coin Index (NWSCo100).  On average (violet area chart), the relationship between ICX to NWSCo100 has shown that it was weaker over the last three months, it has underperformed the NWSCo100 by 15%. However, if we compare the ICX green area graph with the orange index area graph while observing the correlation graph, the correlation graph gives us an explanation that the correlation is not strong (Pearsons correlation coefficient = 0.60). However, for 90% of the time, it was moving in the same direction as the NWSCo100. So, it has been an ordinary representative of the NWSCo100 index in terms of price changes.
