IoTeX (IOTX) Information{coin_name} ({symbol}) Information

IoTeX aims to become the privacy-centric and scalable spinal cord and nervous system for IoT. To achieve this and to address the aforementioned challenges, our architecture design has the following principles.
Utility of the coin/token
IOTX is required as virtual crypto "fuel" for using certain designed functions on the IoTeX Network (such as executing transactions and running the distributed applications on the IoTeX Network), providing the economic incentives which will be consumed to encourage participants to contribute and maintain the ecosystem on the IoTeX Network. Computational resources are required for running various applications and executing transactions on the IoTeX Network.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers

IoTeX's mission
IoTeX is the auto-scalable and privacy-centric blockchain infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT). IoTeX’s global team is comprised of Ph.Ds in Cryptography, Distributed Systems, and Machine Learning, top-tier engineers, and experienced ecosystem builders. IoTeX is developing several in-house innovations to push the frontier of blockchain 3.0, including a blockchain-in-blockchain architecture for heterogeneous computing, fast and robust Roll-DPoS consensus scheme, and lightweight privacy-preserving techniques. IoTeX is bringing autonomous device coordination to the masses by “connecting the physical world, block by block.”
What problems can IoTeX solve?
The Internet of Things has rapidly evolved over the past few years, but lacks real world “killer applications”. McKinsey & Company predicts that IoT could generate up to $11.1 trillion per year in economic value by 2025. Despite the massive potential of IoT, there are roadblocks ahead, such as lack of scalability, privacy concerns, and lack of functional values. IoTeX is solving these problems by creating a flexible, privacy-centric blockchain infrastructure tailor fit for IOT, leveraging a blockchain-in-blockchain architecture with cryptoeconomic incentives. By combining token incentives with community efforts, we can crowdsource industry and community contributions to address various technical challenges related to IoT architecture, infrastructure, and implementation.
What are IoTeX’s competitive advantages?
At a high level, IoTeX's competitive advantage stems from four main innovations: 1. Blockchain-in-blockchain architecture which ensures privacy and prevents IoT information leakage; 2. Built-in privacy based on lightweight cryptography; 3. Real-time consensus with instant finality, which improves the throughput of the network, reduces transactional costs, and enables efficient cross-chain communication; and 4. Subchain-as-a-service (SAAS) to facilitate fast prototyping and production of new IoT applications and ecosystems.
Does IoTeX use DAG?
No, IoTeX does not use directed acyclic graphs (DAG). IoTeX believes that DAG is an interesting technology, but is still in its infancy.
What is an IoTeX token? How does it work?
One of the key factors affecting monetary value is inflation. We plan to address inflation by fixing the total supply of IoTeX tokens from the start at 10 billion tokens. Prior to the launch of the IoTeX Mainnet, the circulated IoTeX token will be an ERC20 token (ticker: IOTX), which is not mineable. Immediately after the launch of the IoTeX Mainnet, we will work with exchanges to help IOTX token holders redeem their ERC20-based IoTeX tokens for the native IoTeX tokens (ticker: IOX). The native token will be mineable, similar to PoS, for 50 years. Rewards of the mining will reduce over time based on a linear gradient reduction model.
Can other projects launch their own token on IoTeX blockchains?
Yes. IoTeX's mission is to allow developers to easily create their own robust and useful subchains for their own projects and ecosystems. Subchains are meant to be flexible, meaning they can choose to use their own tokens or the IoTeX token, can be programmed in a variety of programming languages, and can be made permissioned (private) or permissionless (public). If you have ideas or plans with regards to your own subchain or token, please reach out to us - we would love to help you design your own token economy!
