What is IoTeX (IOTX) crypto and why is it rising?
IoTeX started its journey as an open-source project in 2017. It has created a decentralized platform that intends to enhance the “open economics for machines”, an open ecosystem where people can earn economic incentives with the help of machines.
It claims to have built an EVM-compatible blockchain from scratch by using the Roll-DPoS consensus in April 2019. According to IoTeX, more than 100 delegates globally used the blockchain and processed over 10 million transactions.
The project team has developed essential infrastructure blocks on the IoTeX blockchain to connect Ethereum, BSC, and other blockchains. Its products include the ioPay wallet and ioTube bridge, whose services are used by more than 10,000 users.
IoTeX aids in scaling the EVM-based decentralized applications without requiring expensive gas fees. In addition, middlewares like decentralized identity, confidential computing, etc., enable access to self-sovereign devices, like Ucam real-world oracle Pebble.
The project was founded by Raullen Chai, Qevan Guo, Xinxin Fan, and Jing Sun. The IOTX is the ecosystem’s native token, available for trading on exchanges like Binance, Huobi Global, VCC Exchange, etc.
IoTeX is expected to launch the blockchain’s Mainnet v1.8 this month. The mainnet would include staking through web3 tools, enhanced peer-to-peer (P2P) robustness, multiple API improvements, etc., it said on May 21.
The mainnet is expected to be activated at around 11 pm UTC on May 30. It also announced a partnership with Hacken to boost the products and services in the IoTeX ecosystem.
These developments, along with the positive momentum in the crypto market on Monday, may have helped gains in the IOTX crypto.
