What is IoTex?
IoTeX is building the Internet of Trusted Things, where all physical and virtual things can efficiently exchange information and value at a global scale. Traditionally, the devices that operate and exchange information over the internet, known as IoT devices, are sending the user data to large conglomerates that control it. The users receive no part of the profits that these huge centralised companies make from the user data collected.
IoTeX’s Research and Development team is comprised of Ph.Ds from the University of Waterloo and the National University of Singapore, and engineers in cryptography, artificial intelligence, and IoT who previously worked for Google, Facebook, Uber and Bosch.
IoTeX’s vision is to “drive end-to-end trust throughout the entire information life cycle in an IoT network, including data collection, transport, storage, and utilization”.
Some of the key launches by the foundation include:
- Self-Sovereign Devices: new “Powered by IoTeX” devices based on the IoTeX Decentralised Identity (DID) system; standardisation of DID protocols through collaborations with enterprises and standards bodies, such as IIC & IEEE.
- Real-World Data Oracles: first-of-its-kind oracle framework to bring verifiable real-world data to IoTeX to fuel new machine-backed assets/DApps; position IoTeX as the de facto hub to “serve” real-world data to Ethereum, Polygon, and other networks.
- Decentralised Autonomous Machines (DAMs): a framework for sensors, devices, and machines to autonomously generate value for humans via on-chain data/assets – e.g., fractional ownership of machines, real-time leasing of resources, machine-as-a-service.
IOTX is the native token that gives holders access to the IoTeX network. IoTeX uses a Roll-Delegated Proof of Stake Consensus with 36 delegators on the chain. IOTX holders can stake and vote for delegates, democratically shaping the future of the easy-to-use IoTeX network, increasing its value in the process.
