Another year, another adventure. IoTeX had a monumental year in 2020 — we made massive upgrades to our platform and protocols, launched the first “Powered by IoTeX” products, and expanded our global community. With a solid foundation in place, IoTeX will carry our strong momentum into 2021 with a refreshed focus on growth, awareness, and adoption.
2021 will be the year IoTeX becomes the leading blockchain platform for the Internet of Things (IoT).
In 2021, IoTeX will introduce the first decentralized autonomous machines (DAMs) that will unleash powerful DeFi & IoT applications that are only possible on IoTeX. A new…
2020 was a year we will never forget. As the world changed before our very eyes, one thing has become absolutely clear: the institutions we trusted to protect us have instead failed us and breached our trust. From the rapid growth of corporate/government surveillance to politically-driven COVID-19 policies to rampant misinformation surrounding our elections, 2020 tested our willpower and frequently made us question “who can we actually trust?”
Amidst the turmoil, there is a silver lining: global citizens from all walks of life now recognize the importance of objective facts over subjective promises. This year, the desire for self-sovereignty and…
IoTeX has joined the Executive Committee of the China Mobile IoT Alliance, an invite-only network of 1,600+ enterprise members that include China’s leading IoT manufacturers, service providers, and distributors. As the only public blockchain in the Alliance, IoTeX will leverage our leadership role to introduce blockchain technology to the $350 billion China IoT industry. This appointment to the Executive Committee expands our active leadership roles in top enterprise consortiums like the IIC, IEEE, and CCC.
Greetings IoTeX community! We are back with our Monthly Project Update for January 2021. During the past month, we have introduced the first-ever IoTeX Idea-Thon, published the first use-cases for Pebble, welcomed a new advisor, new listing, and wrapped up the month with publishing our 2021 Roadmap!
Here’s a quick digest in case you’ve missed anything ;)
IoTeX is excited to announce our partnership with Global Digital Assets Corporation (GDAC), a professional services company based in Dubai & Australia. GDAC works with governments and large private organizations in fast growing economies (e.g., Middle East, Asia), helping to bring in new emerging technologies, use open innovation to solve large-scale problems, and work with regulators to create new economic opportunities.
In January 2020, GDAC was appointed by Smart Dubai and the Dubai Future Council on Blockchain (headed by Sheik Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum) as a core partner to lead the Dubai Foresight Initiative to create a future technology…
Our world looks much different than it did a year ago. The shocks of 2020 are still fresh in our minds, but remembering our world as it was a decade ago in 2010 is truly night and day. Uber was still in R&D mode, DoorDash was not even a company, and voice assistants like Alexa were still a futuristic concept. Centralized corporations fueled this decade of disruption through a vicious cycle of consumer naïveté and corporate greed— but times have changed, and decentralization matters now more than ever.
2020 was an incredible year for the blockchain industry. Core building blocks reached an inflection point in maturity and usability across DeFi (DEXs, loans, synthetic assets), social (NFTs, identity), and stablecoins. These tools have gotten us to where we are today but blockchain is still in its infancy. The billion-dollar question is: what new building blocks will propel blockchain to the next level?
IoTeX believes the answer is verifiable facts to connect what happens in the real world with blockchain applications to fuel automation, settle contracts, and much more. Just like verifiable price feeds (e.g., …
We are excited to announce a new integration with BigQuery to make data from the IoTeX blockchain available to Google Cloud users. IoTeX data will be hosted and updated in real-time by Google Cloud as a publicly available dataset, which is now listed on the GCP Marketplace.
While many projects, including IoTeX, explore how to bring data from the real world to the blockchain world, it is also important to consider: how can data from the blockchain world be used in the real world? Unlike other blockchains, IoTeX is focused on enabling verifiable data from verifiable devices for verifiable trust…

E.M. Forster’s 1909 classic “The Machine Stops,” describes a future where humanity lives underground, separated from the natural world, eliminating all impediments to the growth and final hegemony of “The Machine.” Everyone lives in private rooms, and physical interaction is made obsolete by video-calling courtesy of The Machine. All bodily needs — food, clothing, medical assistance — are taken care of by, you guessed it, The Machine.
