What Is District0x (DNT)?

District0x is a platform that enables users to efficiently establish their own decentralized platforms that are managed by a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) structure. It is marketed as a "network of decentralized markets and communities." These platforms can all be launched for free on the district0x and are each referred to as "districts." The unique d0xINFRA framework, which offers a set of fundamental smart contracts and libraries users may use while building up their districts and enables a wide range of potential use-cases, powers the ecosystem. DNT, an ERC-20 utility token that is primarily utilized for community governance, is the ecosystem's native coin. The platform combines the InterPlanetary File Transfer Protocol, Ethereum, and Aragon as its three primary technologies (IPFS).

Districts are built on the Ethereum blockchain; however, the district0x network uses Aragon as its governance layer, giving DNT stakeholders access to governance proposals and voting rights which have the ability to influence the growth and functioning of the districts of their choice. Last but not least, the district0x website source code and user uploads within districts are served using IPFS.

In order to address some of the inefficiencies associated with developing and running distributed community marketplaces, District0x was developed.

In addition to offering a straightforward framework for community governance, it accomplishes this by offering a wide variety of smart contracts and front-end libraries that developers can use to quickly build their own districts.

Developers can construct a district for free, unlike some other platforms that require a fee to launch new applications, albeit a refundable deposit must be paid to be listed to the District Registry. This convenient access platform has already given rise to a variety of prosperous districts with various forms and purposes. The decentralized employment market Ethlance, the peer-to-peer ENS names marketplace Name Bazaar, and Meme Factory are some of the more well-known districts. The latter offers a straightforward interface for producing uncommon digital assets.

At least 600 million DNT tokens, or 60% of the 1 billion DNT fixed maximum supply, were in use as of January 2021. Participants in the 2017 initial coin offering (ICO), in which district0x raised a total of $9 million, received all 600 million DNT. The remaining 198 million DNT are held by the district0x founders and are subject to a two-year vesting schedule. Of these, 180 million DNT are held in reserve for potential future fundraising efforts, 22 million DNT are set aside for advisers and community awards.

The 180 million DNT set aside for fundraising must still be made available. This could potentially be burned at a later time, according to the district0x team. There might also be an unspecified number of team and other reserved tokens that are not in use.

An ERC-20 token is DNT. As a result, it is protected by the Ethereum blockchain's foundation. This employs a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus process as of January 2021 to guarantee the network's security against attacks. A proof-of-stake (PoS) network will eventually be used to safeguard Ethereum as it evolves into Ethereum 2.0, providing comparable levels of defense against assaults at a reduced energy cost.


In February 2017, Joe Urgo and Matus Lestan established District0x.

Former professional poker player turned derivatives trader Joe Urgo has a long history of serving as a consultant in the Bitcoin industry. In addition, he is the creator and CEO of Sourcerers, a consulting company that offers crowdsale and tokenization services.

Programmer and developer Matus Lestan has worked with web and mobile applications for about ten years. At district0x, he is the lead developer at the moment.

Most of the district0x crew, aside from the co-founders, remains hidden from the public. However, according to the district0x salaries transparency page, the company employed at least five more contractors at the beginning of 2021.
