What is IoTeX (IOTX)?

With a vision for the Internet of Trusted Things, a decentralized environment where people and machines may communicate with guaranteed security and trust, IoTeX was established as an open-source platform in 2017.

"IoTeX’s mission is to enable a borderless ecosystem where humans and machines can interact with guaranteed trust, free will, and privacy. We envision a future where users, not institutions, are in complete control of their devices and data. No intrusive ads or surveillance, just privacy and peace of mind. We call this vision the Internet of Trusted Things."

IoTeX will democratize access to machine-backed DApps, assets, and services to give value to consumers and support the new machine economy by fusing the physical and digital worlds.

Additionally, middleware has been developed on top of the IoTeX blockchain to support self-sovereign devices like Ucam and real-world oracles like Pebble, such as Decentralized Identity, Confidential Computing, and Secure Hardware.

The team has constructed the fundamental building blocks of infrastructures to interact with Ethereum, BSC, and Heco blockchains on top of the IoTeX blockchain. Fast, high-performance, and EVM-compatible blockchain with flexibility and scalability for a variety of applications has been developed and launched by IoTeX.

The IoTeX platform is controlled and used by a decentralized network of users, developers, and businesses. The IOTX token, which also permits anybody to be a stakeholder in the IoTeX Network, powers network transactions and smart contracts.


Raullen Chai, Qevan Guo, Xinxin Fan, and Jing Sun are the IoTeX founders.
