What is IoTeX?

IoTeX is a decentralized, EVM-compatible Blockchain that built separately from Ethereum forks.

Basically, it is not governed or operated by any single entity.

The platform aims to bring Blockchain technology into the IoT space which allows users to control smart devices via Dapps and such applications.

This network operates on a Roll-DPoS concensus mechanism at the rate of 5-second blocks and instant finality, which is pretty fast in comparison to some other networks.

>> What is ROSE Crypto <<


It lays on a complex modular architecture as Blockchain layers that tends to establish a hub for decentralized IoT data and compatible devices.

  • Blockchain: Roll-DPoS consensus, EVM-compatible with more than 60 delegators.
  • Decentralized Identity (DID): a framework that allows users/devices to own their data, identity, and credentials.
  • Real World Data Oracles: convert real world data to on-chain data.
  • Secure Hardware: tamper-proof devices integrated in IoTeX Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).

The chain is a fully open-source environment, where developers can build anything similarly to Ethereum chain.

Solidity-based smart contracts and Ethereum toolchain are fully supported.

Within the network, both humans and devices will be able to send payments, access smart contracts, or even charge for services.

In fact, devices that match service level agreements (SLAs) will be equipped with wallets (similar to human), which allow automated payment executions, data transfers, and even more based on pre-programmed smart contracts.

What is IoTeX Coin – IOTX Crypto

IOTX token plays an important role in the IoTeX ecosystem as the native token.

It secures the network and distributes resources properly via EVM to avoid unexpected network congestion.

Participants need IOTX to pay for gas fee in every transaction.

In June 2020, the mainnet ‘Machina’ was introduced, which enables IOTX native staking.

It fortifies the gorvenance role of IOTX, yet confirms IOTX position as a dynamic incentive.

  • Users pay for DApps/services and stake/vote for Delegates with IOTX
  • Developers power their devices/DApps and incentives via IOTX
  • Delegates stake IOTX in order to be eligible to produce blocks
  • Service Providers offer services to devices/DApps, paid in IOTX
