IconPark Season 1 UPDATE

Hi Guys, 

What an exciting finish to 21 days of crowdfunding awesomeness. We are super keen to tell you all who the champion of season 1 is. Apologies that we have to keep you waiting, just a little longer.  It’s important to explain why we are asking you to please be patient.  It is not to be cruel or clandestine, it is to be 100% accurate.

During the closing stages, With the lead changing so many times, such small numbers separating the top teams & With the volume of transactions having increased exponentially, our technical team flagged a critical issue; if we left the numbers up at 9pm people would view them & attempt to incorrectly conclude who the champion of season 1 was.

The reason why we did this:

Given the closeness of the top teams support, just a few failed or declined credit card transactions could potentially be the difference between 1st & 2nd place.  We made the decision, with input from competition team members, to hide the numbers on the site to avoid possible confusion or incorrect assumptions as to the final outcome.

Given the importance of what’s at stake for the teams, we thought it crucial to verify every single transaction that has gone through the platform. So, through the night and throughout today we have been manually authorising every transaction to make sure that funds are in peoples accounts & available to complete their intended support for each team.  This process has now almost concluded and we are very close to announcing the champion of Season 1.  It really was a photo finish.

We respectfully apologise for having put you in the dark. We thank you for your patience. And we Love you for all your kind words and support.

You, the valued supporters of IconPark, will be the first members of the public to know the result, within the next 12 hrs.  Please do not hesitate to contact us via if you have any further questions.
