IoTeX Community Referral Program — Official Launch!

Today, we are excited to launch the IoTeX Community Referral Program!It’s a way for us to reward our amazing community for doing what they already do — helping and believing in IoTeX. Your family, friends, neighbors, classmates, co-workers, crypto network, and more — we think everyone should know about IoTeX, don’t you? 😉

You can earn up to 500 IOTX per referral, and there is no limit on the number of referrals. And best of all, you will be contributing directly to the future of IoTeX. Start referring today!

How can I participate?
Anyone that stakes 1,000 IOTX is eligible and will get a unique referral link. Any new account that starts a browser session from your referral link and stakes at least 1,000 IOTX is a successful referral. The rules are simple:

  1. The more successful referrals you make, the more rewards for you!
  2. The more IOTX staked by referred accounts, the more rewards for you!
It’s that simple — rewards are just a social media post, email, text, call, or conversation away.

403
What rewards will I get for referrals?
There is no limit on the number of referrals, and you can earn up to 500 IOTX per referral (details here). That means you can earn 25,000 IOTX for referring 50 people (light work…) or 50,000 IOTX for referring 100 people (challenge accepted!). But wait, there’s more! You can also multiply your rewards by meeting specific referral tiers:

  • 10 total referrals = 10% bonus on ALL rewards
  • 25 total referrals = 15% bonus on ALL rewards
  • 50 total referrals = 20% bonus on ALL rewards
  • Top 5 referrers = 25% bonus on ALL rewards
The sky is the limit! We will give the Top 5 a special recognition badge to share their contributions to the entire community. Track the status of your referrals on the Referrals page of the voting website — start referring today!

Anything else I should know?
The first phase of the IoTeX Community Referral Program will run from NOW until Mainnet launch. Remember that for your referrals to be successful, new accounts must have at least 1,000 IOTX staked when the Mainnet launches. To help educate and persuade new members to join our community, you can send along these materials:

The IoTeX team reserves the right to disqualify any specific referrals if evidence of cheating, fake accounts, or suspicious activity is found. In extreme cases, we may completely disqualify users if multiple instances of foul play are identified. For any questions, please reach out to us on Telegram or Twitter.

Hello everyone! After an exciting month of introducing our delegates and kicking off the voting, we will meet you again in our coming AMA next Tuesday on Mar 26, 2019 from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM PDT. As last time, this AMA will be a LIVESTREAM one which will be focusing on our Delegates Program.

Our co-founders Raullen and Jing, and Head of BD Larry will be hosting the livestream to talk about our recent updates. We will take the first few minutes to go through the Delegates Program progress, recap of the voting status, and share more details about our schedule of the coming weeks until Mainnet launch. We will have a mix between discussing pre-selected submitted questions and answering the questions you have for them live.

As usual, you are allowed to submit your questions beforehand through the following form — doing so will grant you a chance to be handpicked as a pre-selected question which will be guaranteed an answer during the livestream. The deadline for filling the form is 6:00 AM PDT on Mar 26.


Mainnet Rehearsal Begins on March 27!

What is Mainnet Rehearsal?
Consensus in the IoTeX network is managed exclusively by Delegates — it is a critical role, as the network is only as strong as the weakest node. To make sure Delegates are 100% ready, we will run a Mainnet Rehearsal (private beta) for ~2 weeks, after which the Mainnet will be launched to the public (official date coming soon).

Mainnet Rehearsal is required for all Delegates and consists of attending various workshops (i.e., infrastructure, monitoring, rewards) and practicing real world Delegate scenarios:

  • Network bootstrap: start blockchain + consensus process from scratch
  • First aid: pause / resume blockchain without affecting block production
  • Hotfix (compatible): install new software without pausing consensus (e.g., bug fixes, new features)
  • Hotfix (non-compatible): network-wide pause to install new software (e.g., serious issues that should not happen regularly)
  • Rollback & recovery: reverse a set of blocks and allow blockchain to recover (e.g., critical issues and bugs, should not happen)
What are the actual responsibilities of Delegates?
Delegates will install the iotex-core protocol on their servers, which automatically proposes and validates blocks. As such, the primary role of a Delegate is to run the latest iotex-core software (there will be frequent updates) and always keep their node/server online. Delegates will need to be on-call to install both urgent and non-urgent software updates, as well as properly configure their hardware to maintain node uptime.

Consensus in the IoTeX network is a team effort. Mainnet Rehearsal will be the formal orientation for Delegates to meet each other, configure their nodes, and practice real world consensus scenarios.

What’s Next?
The next few weeks leading up to Mainnet launch will be action-packed. We will need the commitment of ALL Delegates and the community to make our Mainnet launch successful. After successfully running Mainnet Rehearsal for ~2 weeks and meeting performance/security benchmarks, the IoTeX Mainnet will be launched to the public!

In addition to Mainnet launch, we have other exciting announcements coming soon. We can’t wait to share what we have been working on behind-the-scenes — stay tuned to our official channels to stay in the loop! Let’s build the future together.


Recap & Highlights of the Interview with BlockchainBrad

We suggest you to check out the livestream and for your convenience, the timestamps are provided, as well as, here is a short summary report of the main points discussed in this interview.

IoTeX in a nutshell
IoTeX is a privacy-centric platform, designed and optimized for the IoT.
Right now we have a team of around 25 globally, most of the team is in Silicon Valley, but we also have a hardware office in Shenzhen and a small Business Development office in Singapore. Our goal is to really create a smart-contract platform, that is robust, scalable, but also have the features that people need to create a brand new privacy and IoT-focused applications. We are trying to make is easy for people to utilize blockchain and IoT and show the synergy of these two technologies but we are also focused on privacy, which is the hot topic of 2019.

IoTeX is a non-profit foundation, we are a smart-contract platform and everything is fully open-source, so we are not a revenue generating company but there’s a consumer side to our project. But the enterprise sector is very important to us and we believe that our technology and vision fits well with them, which is to create a decentralized trust fabric that lets anyone to collaborate with each other.

Why does privacy matter?
Privacy vs. pseudo-anonymity
Privacy for enterprises
Scalability

Mainnet Rehearsal is officially underway!
"Everyone is on time! Exciting about the mainnet rehearsal starts NOW! Native IOTX is on the way!"
(Raullen Chai)



50+ IoTeX Delegates from around the world - all online at the same time to practice bootstrapping the Mainnet from scratch

Rehearsal going well, delegates start to take the lead!

IoTeX Rehearsal Manual



Mainnet Rehearsal Kickoff Report
432

The Mainnet Rehearsal uses the latest iotex-core v0.5.0-rc6 code, which is the next iteration of v0.5.0-rc5 that has evolved via Testnet testing over the past month. Today’s rehearsal started with 24 Robo-Delegates running consensus, which were gradually replaced with elected Delegates.

Delegates will continue to mine on both the Testnet and the Mainnet instances, which use different staking/registration contracts and tokens (i.e., IOTX vs. IOTTT). Want to explore for yourself? See our Rehearsal Manual.

Mainnet Rehearsal Attendance
We were very happy with the attendance of our Mainnet Rehearsal kickoff, with >75% of Delegates actively participating in discussion, node setup, and mining. Delegates with experience mining on other PoS/DPoS networks (e.g., EOS, Tron, Tezos, Lisk) were very helpful.

Attended: Airfoil Services, CapitalMu (NUS), Cobo Wallet, Coingecko, Consensus Networks, CPC-IoTeX, DRoute Capital, Du Capital, EnlightiVision, GameFantasy, Hashbuy, Homotopic & DraperDragon, Infinity Stones, IOSG Venture, IoTASK, IoTeX Core, IoTeX Geeks, IoTeX ICU, IoTeX LAB, IoTeX Union, iotexmainnet, IoTeXTeam, iotxplorer, Keys IoTeX, Lanhu IoT, LongZ, Metanyx, PreAngel, Public Payments, RATELS, RKT8, Royal Land, WanNodes, Whales Capital. Youbi Validator, ZH Capital

Not attended: Alphacoin, Bgogo, BlockBoost, BlockVC, Crypto Lions, EON, IoTeX Hub, IoTeX Tech, Meter, PIEXGO, SlowMist, Super IoTeX, Wayi Validator

What are the upcoming Mainnet Rehearsal events?
As of now, 20+ Delegates have successfully produced blocks on the Mainnet (congrats to WanNodes for producing the first block!). Throughout the next week, Delegates will keep their servers running and continue mining. We will start a new instance (brand new chain) on Tuesday, April 2 to practice bootstrapping the Mainnet from scratch again.

On Friday, March 29, we will have a workshop where IoTeX Foundation will share best practices for: 1) recommended system infrastructure, 2) monitoring, on-call and devops, 3) rewards and token swap, and 4) blockchain fast sync. We will share the slides after the session — stay tuned!

When will Mainnet be launched?
The public Mainnet launch date will be announced in the coming week. Based on today’s successful Mainnet Rehearsal kickoff, we are confident that the Mainnet will be launched to the public in the next 2–3 weeks.

It is crucial that any potential security and performance issues are resolved before public Mainnet launch. Please be patient as we onboard all Delegates and put the finishing touches on our Mainnet code. Thank you for supporting IoTeX — let’s build the future together!

440

Highlights: Livestream from March 26

Jing: “Based on the community voting, over 20% of the voters have selected a staking duration of 350 days. Thank you for being our true believers!

  • Q1 — On Delegates’ contributions
- contributions to the core code are really welcomed!
  • Q2 — Delegates changing rewards
    The team’s job here is to maintain the decentralized approach as we don’t want to be the police, and all we are trying to do is to provide very transparent information so that voters can make the best decisions.
  • Q3 — Reputation system for Delegates
    - we respect anonymity and freedom, we disincentivize misinformation

  • Q4 — Voting for the Delegates in the top
    Are they any measures that would disincentivize people from voting for a top delegate to increase their chances of getting rewards because it’s not necessarily beneficial for the network in the long-run?

    - one thing that we urge all the voters to do is to vote based on reliability, future plans and strength of the team and the concept of the node.
  • Q5 — The Current state of the IoT industry
    • we are currently working with some of the hardware companies to facilitate hardware development, which will launch very soon
    • also, very soon we will launch the member portal to introduce the hardware products to our members.
  • Q6 — Becoming IoTeX’s Delegate
    - we are building an open network, everyone is free to join and free to leave, that’s our philosophy.
If we see something that’s damaging the network, we can guarantee that we will make it known, and right now the core team has an extremely loud voice, so we will step in when needed.
  • Q7 — On funding
    - So far, we have enough money to support the entire IoTeX blockchain development.
  • Q8 — IoTeX’s business model
    Since IoTeX is a non-profit foundation, how is the project sustained over time without the focus on revenue?
- non-profit doesn’t mean non-revenue
- we do things to cover our costs and to maintain our growth of the network
  • Q9 — On marketing
    How would you rate your current marketing efforts and what do you think can be improved on the promotion and marketing side?

    - 20% of circulating supply staked in just 3 days
    - building these new kinds of products, so that they will definitely see the value and the reason why they need to use this product

  • Rehearsal #2: Bootstrap a brand new chain for the second time using rc8
What improvements have been made to IoTeX Mainnet code?
For the past two months, the IoTeX team has launched a new code release every week. We started with Release Candidate #1 (rc1) and have evolved now to rc8 (full details here). Week after week, we have made significant enhancements in consensus performance and usability for Delegates. Here are some interesting facts to contextualize our progress:

  • Syncing: Delegates can now “fast sync” >1,500 blocks per minute
  • Block production: 100,000+ blocks produced by 40+ Delegates
  • Load tests: 200+ finalized TPS and more intensive load tests coming soon
  • Soft fork compatibility: compatible hotfixes (i.e., rc6 + rc7) can run concurrently without affecting consensus
  • Monitoring: effective monitoring of all nodes status / performance — see https://t.iotex.me/chainhealth for the live results
  • Usability tools: great collection of ioctl tool features and rewards distribution tool in progress

Real blocks, real transactions, real IOTX tokens!

What’s Next?
We have made incredible progress over the past week of Mainnet Rehearsal, but we still have work to do! IoTeX Foundation will host more Mainnet Rehearsal events next week (Orientation Call #2 + Consensus Rehearsal #3). Assuming these events run smoothly, the public Mainnet launch is expected during the week of April 15 (final date coming soon)!

It is critical for the future of IoTeX that all security and performance issues are resolved before public Mainnet launch.
Please be patient as we continue to work with all Delegates and put the finishing touches on our Mainnet. Thank you for supporting IoTeX — let’s build the future together!

IoTeX Mainnet Rehearsal Conclusion — Launch Coming Soon!

After two weeks of workshops and rigorous testing, we are happy to report that Mainnet Rehearsal has officially concluded!

On April 9, IoTeX Foundation hosted Orientation Call #2, the fourth and final Mainnet Rehearsal event. We had 55+ participants that joined our global conference call — the highest attendance of all Mainnet Rehearsal events! This shows the interest and commitment from our Delegates is only getting stronger — we can’t wait to build the future of IoTeX together.



Slides from Orientation Call #2: https://bre.is/tlNCi2ArJ
If you missed our earlier Mainnet Rehearsal events, see our full recaps here:

Key Takeaways from Mainnet Rehearsal
The primary goals of Mainnet Rehearsal were to 1) properly train Delegates to run consensus for IoTeX, and 2) pressure test and improve our Mainnet code. Today, Delegates are consistently mining REAL blocks using the REAL Mainnet code on REAL servers. We are proud to report we accomplished both of our primary goals — the Mainnet Rehearsal was a huge success!



Current status of Mainnet Rehearsal blockchain: https://t.iotex.me/chainhealth
IoTeX Mainnet Rehearsal lasted ~2 weeks and included two Consensus Rehearsals (bootstrapping a new blockchain from scratch) and two Orientation Calls (technical workshops from IoTeX Foundation). Throughout the Mainnet Rehearsal, we greatly improved the performance and security of the IoTeX blockchain and helped Delegate setup/optimize their nodes. Key takeaways include:

  • Multiple code releases + updates: Mainnet Rehearsal started with Testnet v0.5.0-rc6, and new code releases (rc7, rc8, rc9) were launched every week with bug fixes, new features, and improved performance.
  • Load tests and “fire drill” practice: we rapidly injected transactions (300+ finalized TPS) to test the limits of our blockchain, and practiced how to handle rare “fire drill” incidents — practice makes perfect!
  • System infrastructure + devops: IoTeX Foundation delivered multiple workshops to help configure and optimize Delegate nodes; recommended setup includes Kubernetes, Envoy, Prometheus, PagerDuty, Keel, and more
  • Command line interface (ioctl tool): we built/improved the ioctl tool, which provides a seamless interface to interact with IoTeX blockchain: account mgmt, wallet, node status, transactions, rewards, and much more. This tool is not only for Delegates — please try it out for yourself!
  • Rewards calculation + distribution tools: some of our Delegates, such as InfinityStones, iotxplorer, and IoTASK, created open source tools to help Delegates calculate/distribute rewards and add transparency for voters
  • DDoS attack bounty campaign: to really challenge the IoTeX blockchain and our Delegates, we issued a DDoS bounty to identify any weak points and attack vectors. The IoTeX blockchain has held up very well!
Although Mainnet Rehearsal is now over, we will continue to strengthen and improve the IoTeX Network. We encourage ALL community members to test and help improve the IoTeX Mainnet once it is publicly launched.

Next Stop: Mainnet Alpha Launch!
The Mainnet Rehearsal was extremely useful in enhancing our consensus, adding usability for Delegates, and ensuring the real Mainnet can conquer all risks and scenarios. By going through this process, we are extremely confident that our Delegates will be able to grow and maintain the IoTeX Network.

The IoTeX blockchain code is currently being audited by top cybersecurity and formal verification companies. This process is similar to the audits of our staking/voting smart contracts by Certik & SlowMist. It is critical for the future of IoTeX that all security and performance issues are resolved before public Mainnet launch.

The blockchain audit is the final milestone before the public launch of Mainnet Alpha — we will announce to the community once this is completed. Assuming no issues, we plan to finalize and announce the official public Mainnet launch date during the week of April 15.

What else is on the horizon?
The Mainnet Alpha launch is coming soon, but there are also many other exciting things on the way! Some we can share now, and some are top secret to be shared soon. 2019 will be an amazing, action-packed year for IoTeX — here are some things to look forward to:

  • Community reward programs (IoLove, Mainnet video, DDoS): don’t miss out on your chance to earn IOTX rewards in our three active community reward campaigns! Your participation in the IoLove and Mainnet video campaigns will greatly help us to spread the word about IoTeX Mainnet launch, please participate!
  • IoTeX Member Portal: your one-stop shop for all things Blockchain + IoT! We will be educating you on the latest products and giving away IoT devices and IoTeX swag — you must be a Member to access, so make sure to vote today!
  • Early staking/voting bonus: these rewards from the IoTeX Foundation will be distributed to voters once Mainnet is launched. We originally intended to give the 30% bonus to the first 1,000 buckets that staked >28 days, but decided to extend the 30% bonus to anyone that staked in March for >28 days! Please remember that you must keep your tokens staked until Mainnet launch to receive the early staking bonus.
Stay tuned to our official channels for more exciting announcements, and please help us spread the news about IoTeX Mainnet! We appreciate your support, let’s build the future together.

Everything You Need to Know About IoTeX Mainnet Alpha


IoTeX & Internet of Trusted Things
IoTeX began our journey in 2017 to build the Internet of Trusted Things, where all physical and virtual “things” — humans, machines, businesses, and dApps — can efficiently exchange information and value at global scale. Throughout the past two years, we built IoTeX from scratch and devoted ourselves to delivering new innovations to the blockchain industry. This is manifested in Mainnet Alpha, which delivers a state-of-the-art Root Chainon which new Layer 2 chains, tokens, dApps, and businesses will be launched.​


The IoTeX Mainnet serves as the origin for the Internet of Trusted Things.Our vision is much more than just adding trust to today’s IoT devices. Rather, by acting as a decentralized trust fabric for ALL physical and virtual things, IoTeX will drive end-to-end trust throughout the entire information life cycle, including collection, transport, storage, and utilization. This means data and assets can be shared by all types of “things”, enabling new decentralized business models involving humans, machines, businesses, and dApps:
  • Humans can seamlessly transact with machines in new sharing economy and data-as-a-service use cases
  • Machines can interact directly with other machines to power decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO)
  • Businesses can collaborate with other businesses to achieve new levels of collective intelligence and impact
  • Humans, machines, and businesses can access trusted dApps to perform various processes/tasks with full data privacy
The Internet of Trusted Things will change the world; however, it takes a special kind of blockchain to bring this vision to reality. IoTeX is the only blockchain platform capable of powering the Internet of Trusted Things.From Day 1, we made upfront design decisions to tailor fit IoTeX to support data privacy, trusted computing, large-scale IoT, interoperability, and big data use cases. By serving as the infrastructure to unify all “things”, IoTeX will power the new decentralized economy.


What is Mainnet Alpha?
Mainnet Alpha introduces the Root Chain, which is a robust foundation for future Layer 2 (L2) chains and dApps. As the manager of all L2 chains, the Root Chain utilizes Roll-DPoS consensus to guarantee security, reliability and transparency. The Root Chain provides P2P networking and consensus resources, which are leveraged by all L2 chains in the IoTeX Network. The Root Chain will allow developers to spin up custom L2 chains just as they would a new instance on Cloud! Cross-chain communication is also enabled by the Root Chain, which allows L2 chains to interoperate.
The safety-oriented Root Chain acts as a launchpad for various L2 chains, which are meant to be flexible and fit-for-purpose. L2 chains can be created with distinct crypto-economics and architectures to satisfy specific use cases: permissioned vs. permission-less, storage vs. micro-transaction focused, privacy vs. transparency-centric. The first L2 chain (codename: “AvoChain”) focused on privacy and trusted computing will be launched in Q2 2019.
Key components that have been released in Mainnet Alpha include:
  • Roll-DPoS Consensus: IoTeX’s in-house consensus mechanism is a variant of Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS), which delivers higher scalability without sacrificing decentralization or security. Roll-DPoS randomly selects 24 of the top 36 community-elected Delegates using distributed key generation (DKG) + BLS signatures. New Delegates are randomly selected every epoch (one hour) to ensure high security and hardware efficiency.
  • Ethereum-to-IoTeX Bridge: until the IoTeX Gravity Chain (governance layer) is launched in Q3/Q4, governance tasks (e.g., staking/voting) will be run on Ethereum. To facilitate this cross-network interoperability, we built a first-of-its-kind decentralized bridge between IoTeX and Ethereum, where the status of Ethereum staking/voting smart contracts instruct the IoTeX blockchain to perform Delegate swaps based on live voting results.
  • Extensible State transitions: IoTeX’s state transition component is designed to be extensible, meaning a subprotocol can be conveniently plugged in to support certain state transitions (e.g., confidential txns) without disrupting performance/security. As of now, there are five subprotocols implemented in Mainnet Alpha:

  • EVM-compatible execution unit: Mainnet Alpha uses Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which is widely used by blockchain developers. Existing EVM-based dApps can be ported over to the IoTeX Network starting now!In the future, we will use EVM as a standalone execution unit for edge devices and develop an in-house IoTeX Virtual Machine, interpreter, and corresponding programming paradigms for decentralized computing.
  • SDK and explorer: to ensure a great developer experience, we provide the latest tech stack in the industry. dApps can interact with the IoTeX blockchain using our SDK (iotex-antenna) via gRPC. Developers can also create/unlock accounts, prepare smart contracts, and query the chain with GraphQL via our explorer (iotexscan). We use typescript to support type check and type annotation for ease of use and engineering quality.
IoTeX Native Token & Utility
The launch of Mainnet Alpha also marks the official launch of the IoTeX native token. The IoTeX native token is a utility token, which will be used in both the Root Chain (orchestration layer) and Gravity Chain (governance layer) for the following purposes:
  • Decentralized governance: staking/voting for Delegates, Delegate rewards and slashing, and network-wide votes/referendums (i.e., changes to rules, parameters, protocols)
  • Gas fees: running transactions and executing smart contracts on the IoTeX Network. One novelty is that gas fees are collected as a “tax” and then pooled/distributed to block producing Delegates
  • Bond/operation costs for L2 chains: to provision a Layer 2 chain, one must stake tokens on the Root Chain as bond and pay for operational costs. Each L2 chain may have its own crypto-economics and tokens, but will pay “registration costs” to leverage Root Chain resources.
Token Swap: Native & ERC20
The new IoTeX native token and existing IoTeX ERC20 token will co-exist for 3–6 months (until Gravity Chain launch in Q3/Q4 2019). For now, the ERC20 token will be used for staking/voting on Ethereum and will be tradable on exchanges (i.e., Binance, Bittrex, Upbit), while the native token will be used for running transactions and smart contracts on the IoTeX Network.
After the launch of Gravity Chain in Q3/Q4 2019, we will facilitate an official ERC20-to-native token swap via mainstream exchanges. Until then, options for token holders to two-way swap their tokens 1:1 include:
  • ERC20-to-native: leverage our Ethereum-IoTeX bridge to swap via smart contract — just send ERC20 tokens to an Ethereum smart contract and the corresponding amount of native tokens will be sent to your IoTeX address
  • Native-to-ERC20: use our micro-service iotex-tube — just send your native tokens to a specific IoTeX address, and corresponding amount of ERC20 tokens will be sent to your ETH address.
IoTeX Delegates & Staking/Voting
The IoTeX Network uses Roll-DPoS consensus, where Delegates are elected by token holders to run consensus on behalf of the entire network. The primary role of a Delegate is to help grow and maintain the network by providing robust node infrastructure, maintaining high server uptime, collaborating with other Delegates to run consensus, and contributing to various network initiatives.
IoTeX uses a unique staking/voting process managed completely by smart contract. As such, there is no centralized entity that can manipulate voting results — it is fully decentralized as all voting should be! In the IoTeX Network, 1 token = 1 vote and voters can also get bonus votes by setting a pre-defined stake duration (bonus curve). For more information on the voting process, please see our all-in-one Voter Handbook.
There are currently 50+ IoTeX Delegates from 20+ countries, including developers, community, media, universities, enterprises, and funds/VCs. Also included are experienced node operators from other PoS/DPoS networks, such as EOS, Tezos, Tron, Lisk, and IOST. With such a diverse, committed, and experience group of Delegates, we are confident that the IoTeX Network will be able to evolve efficiently and sustainably.


Vote today at member.iotex.io!
Voting for Delegates began on March 11, with a goal of having 20% of the total circulating supply (~500 million IOTX) staked/voted to bootstrap the Mainnet. This goal was met within one week, a testament to our highly committed community! With one week left until Mainnet Alpha, there are now >750 million tokens staked/voted (~30% of the circulating supply). If you haven’t voted yet, vote today on the official voting website!
The Future of IoTeX
IoTeX is and always will be 100% open source — an experiment in mindshare and collaboration, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The launch of Mainnet Alpha represents a new era of IoTeX, with community-driven development and teamwork as top priorities. We can’t wait to see what you will build on the IoTeX Network!


The Grand Design of IoTeX: Multi-layer Architecture
Mainnet Alpha is just a start — the grand design of IoTeX is a multi-layer architecture comprised of hierarchical blockchain layers with unique duties: Gravity Chain (governance), Root Chain (orchestration), and Layer 2 chains (operation/execution). Additional layers will be released throughout 2019, with the first Layer 2 chain in Q2 and the Gravity Chain in Q3/Q4. For more details, please see our post on The Grand Design of IoTeX.


IoTeX Roadmap 2019
As shown in our roadmap, 2019 will be an action-packed year for IoTeX.With a robust Root Chain foundation in place, the next steps of adding new L2 chains (i.e., trusted computing, IoT device hub), open source tools (i.e., SDKs, explorers, wallets), and dApps/services (i.e., DEX, stable coins, oracles) will involve the entire IoTeX developer and user community. Let us celebrate this major Mainnet Alpha milestone together and look forward to the journey ahead — let’s build the future together!

Recap of IoTeX Mainnet Rehearsals!

In order for the IoTeX Mainnet Alpha to take place and make sure that the Delegates are able to run the consensus of the network in a secure way on behalf of the entire community, IoTeX’s team has executed Mainnet Rehearsal sessions by creating various workshops (i.e., infrastructure, monitoring, rewards) and practicing real world Delegate scenarios:
  • Network bootstrap: start blockchain + consensus process from scratch
  • First aid: pause / resume blockchain without affecting block production
  • Hotfix (compatible): install new software without pausing consensus (e.g., bug fixes, new features)
  • Hotfix (non-compatible): network-wide pause to install new software (e.g., serious issues that should not happen regularly)
  • Rollback & recovery: reverse a set of blocks and allow blockchain to recover (e.g., critical issues and bugs, should not happen)
We have been recording all the sessions and prepared the recap for you in the blog posts below:

We are excited to now bring charity into the IoTeX Delegates Program

IoTeX is proud to introduce our new partner and Delegate: The Giving Block!
Together, we will use blockchain for social good. ALL Delegate rewards will be donated to a new charity every quarter, starting with the Lupus Foundation of America (lupus.org).
A vote for The Giving Block is a vote for Charity!

454

The Giving Block will become an official IoTeX Delegate, helping IoTeX grow and maintain the network. IoTeX Delegates are issued rewards in IOTX tokens and all profits earned by The Giving Block will be donated to charitable causes! We are excited to pioneer this new approach to supporting nonprofits/charities.

Please consider using some/all of your votes for this great cause — even a little can make a big difference. A vote for The Giving Block is a vote for Charity! Vote here: https://member.iotex.io/delegate/5cb7febe87358f57fb17ce09



What is The Giving Block?
The Giving Block helps nonprofits leverage cryptocurrency and blockchain to elevate their impact. They focus on basic blockchain education, equipping nonprofits to accept cryptocurrency donations (including IOTX!), and matching them with top projects in the industry to explore innovative use cases. The Giving Block currently partners with charitable organizations such as the Lupus Foundation of America, who will be the first recipient of the Delegate Program rewards.

IoTeX Delegate Program & The Giving Block
A vote for The Giving Block is a vote for Charity. 50% of all Delegate rewards will be donated to the “Charity of the Quarter” and the other 50% will be redistributed to voters. To introduce as many charities to blockchain and cryptocurrency, a new charity will be selected every three months as the recipient of rewards. In the future, we plan to work on traceability-focused dApps to add transparency into how these rewards are used.



The first “Charity of the Quarter” is the Lupus Foundation of America. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. It is difficult to diagnose, a challenge to treat and potentially fatal. Currently there is no known cause or cure. Lupus affects more than 5 million people around the world. You can contribute to finding a cure by voting for The Giving Block or donating cryptocurrency (IOTX coming soon!) directly to Lupus Foundation of America on their website.

🎊 IoTeX Mainnet Alpha is officially LIVE! 🙌

✅ Mainnet Alpha serves as the origin for the Internet of Trusted Things, which enables all physical and virtual things -- humans, machines, businesses, dApps -- to exchange information and value at global scale.

🏆 Announcing The Winners!
Metanyx
With the tools provided, metanyx successfully launched DDOS attacks by injecting lots of actions into certain nodes and knocked down the victim machines, which leads to more strict rate-limiting on P2P layer to defend against such attacks.

IoTeXTeam
IoTeXTeam launched a similar DDOS attack and knocked down 7+ victim knocked, which leads to more strict rate-limiting on API layer to defend such attacks.

IoTask
IoTask found an interesting bug such that testing accounts are carried over to mainnet alpha which has been immediately fixed by the core team.

Congratulations to the hunters and thank you all for the support! IoTeX always want our community to take part in the exciting and cutting-edge technology of blockchain platforms. We look forward to interacting with more enthusiastic developers who will change the world with products built on IoTeX and rewarding their contributions.

- Event reward : 1st place - 180,000 IOTX / 2nd place - 110,000 IOTX / 3rd place - 60,000 IOTX

※ Disclaimer : If there is a tie regarding net deposits, all such participants will receive an evenly divided portion of the relevant event reward. Please see below for a partial list of possible scenarios.
• 1st and 2nd place are tied --> The 1st and 2nd place reward would be combined (180,000 + 110,000 IOTX) and then divided by 2, with each participant receiving one half of that total (145,000 IOTX). 3rd place would receive the designated reward for 3rd place (60,000 IOTX).
• 2nd and 3rd place are tied --> 1st place would receive 180,000 IOTX; the 2nd and 3rd place reward would be combined (110,000 + 60,000 IOTX) and then divided by 2, with each participant receiving one half of that total (85,000 IOTX)
• There is a 4-way tie for 2nd place --> 1st place would receive 180,000 IOTX; the 2nd and 3rd place reward would be combined (110,000 + 60,000 IOTX) and then divided by 4, with each tied user receiving an equal portion (42,500 IOTX)
• There is a 3-way tie for 3rd place --> 1st and 2nd place would receive their designated rewards (180,000 and 110,000 IOTX respectively); each tied user would receive an equal portion of the 3rd place reward (60,000 IOTX), so each would receive 20,000 IOTX

Event reward distribution date: Within 2 weeks of the event’s conclusion

※ Additional disclaimers
- All times regarding the events are in KST.
- If the KRW value of the amount of crypto to be received is greater than 50,000 KRW, the recipients are required to bear public charge and tax (22%). As such, the actual amount that the winner receives would be the amount remaining after deducting 22% from the above totals when appropriate.
- Winners who would be subject to public charge and tax are required to provide information necessary for processing said charge and tax to GOPAX before the scheduled reward distribution date; failure to do so will result in the reward being forfeit. GOPAX will separately contact the winners of the events to inform them of what information needs to submitted in order to receive the reward.

Please be advised that there is a risk of losses due to IOTX price fluctuations; also be aware that immediately after listing, there may be a large difference between domestic and foreign market prices.

For token price and other information regarding IOTX, please see below.

IoTeX Delegate Showcase — iotxplorer launches their first product!
Many IoTeX Delegates have been working hard in the background for weeks preparing for IoTeX Mainnet launch. One of these delegates is iotxplorer ! 🙌🏾

Check out their new IoTeX block explorer and more in our new post:
471

Although the IoTeX mainnet just launched this week, many of our delegates have been working hard in the background for weeks preparing for launch day. One of these delegates is iotxplorer!

First introduced to the community as a delegate here, iotxplorer is founded by one of our earliest brand ambassadors and this week they celebrate the completion of their first product — the iotxplorer block explorer.

Utility
Their block explorer provides useful information on all actions, blocks, and contract executions on the IoTeX network and serves as an alternative to iotexscan. Some innovations include keeping track of the current delegate producer by name, generating unique, deterministic avatars associated with each IoTeX address, and including a member’s portal for their voters to track rewards history. Following this release, iotxplorer will continue development of the website while expanding it’s scope according to their key goal of always adding value.



Education
As well as adding value and providing utility, iotxplorer’s other two goals are to legitimise cryptocurrency through education and to show integrity by providing transparency to their voters as a delegate. As well as the block explorer, the iotxplorer website hosts an open source documentation page dubbed ‘iotxplorer.education’, where they host links, videos and guides about IoTeX and crypto. It is a great resource for newcomers to learn everything they need about IoTeX in one place, and provides in depth guides and explanations for those a little more entrenched, such as developers or prospective delegates. If you have any content you think should be on there but isn’t already, feel free to contribute!



Transparency
As mentioned, the iotxplorer dashboard is a great place for their voters to visit and track their rewards history. They have useful charts to see how rewards have varied over time, and also include an estimated ROI calculation based on the live state of the network election contract. To go a step further they have a helpful robot tweeting from @iotxplorer_bot which sends out a tweet every time their rewards engine has run and successfully distributed rewards. This enables anybody to back-check rewards sent with what the bot says and what iotxplorer promise to distribute, ensuring everybody is always on the same page.


What’s next?
For our delegates, they can never do too much to help the IoTeX community! According to the founder, the next steps for iotxplorer are as follows:

  1. Launch a DApp on the network based on their auto-rewards tool which they presented to fellow delegates during mainnet rehearsal orientation call #2
  2. Launch guidance on iotxplorer education on how to write and launch IoTeX DApps, based on #1
  3. Work with fellow delegate IoTask to bring Ledger Wallet support to IoTeX
Seeing our early delegates already doing so much to push us further as a community is wonderful to see — long may it continue! Congratulations to iotxplorer and their voters for a great start.

IoTeX (IOTX) Mainnet Alpha Goes Live

473

In this week’s issue:

Summary

  • After two years of development, IoTeX launches their mainnet and the IoTeX native token. The launch enables all physical and virtual things — humans, machines, businesses, dApps — to exchange information and value on a global scale.
  • This launch delivers a state-of-the-art Root Chain, on which new Layer 2 chains, tokens, dApps, and businesses will be launched.
  • IoTeX has the only blockchain platform capable of powering the Internet of Trusted Things, as it supports data privacy, trusted computing, large-scale IoT, interoperability, and big data use cases.
  • Key components include Roll-DPoS Consensus, Ethereum-to-IoTeX Bridge, Extensible State transitions, EVM-compatible execution unit, plus a SDK and explorer.
Significance

IoTeX mainnet is now live after two years of development. They have grand ambitions of acting as a decentralized trust fabric for ALL physical and virtual things. In this capacity, IoTeX will drive end-to-end trust throughout the entire information life cycle, including collection, transport, storage, and utilization. This means data and assets can be shared by all types of “things”, enabling new decentralized business models involving humans, machines, businesses, and dApps.

The technological significance comes from their Root Chain, which utilizes Roll-DPoS consensus to guarantee security, reliability, and transparency. This in-house consensus mechanism is a variant of Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS), which delivers higher scalability without sacrificing decentralization or security. It allows developers to spin up custom L2 (layer two) chains just as they would a new instance on Cloud!

IoTeX is also addressing interoperability, which has been a major pain point in the cryptocurrency sector. Cross-chain communication is enabled by the Root Chain, which allows L2 chains to interoperate.

The number of Consensus Delegates will be increased from 12 to 18 at epoch #350 (May 6)!
491
This increase will allow more elected Delegates to participate in consensus and brings us one step closer to Mainnet Phase II (i.e., 24 elected Delegates).

To fully transition from Mainnet Phase I to Phase II, we will need continued support of both Delegates and voters to ensure consensus continues to run smoothly and more tokens are staked/voted to further secure the network.

Swap ERC20 IOTX to Native IOTX

  1. Record the private key of your ETH wallet holding ERC20-IOTX. Make sure this is NOT an exchange wallet - you must have the private key!
  2. Send any amount of ERC20-IOTX to 0xB9071B7016d29B2672E3796A4c4f41838CBB6fc3 (swap address) and the same amount of Native IOTX will be sent to the corresponding IoTeX address (note: starts with “io”) within ~1 minute.
  3. You can access the corresponding IoTeX address using the same private key as your ERC20 wallet. Just enter the private key into any wallet that supports Native IOTX. The same private key is used to unlock the ETH and IO addresses that are swapping ERC20 & Native IOTX.
Do not directly send ERC20-IOTX from exchange wallets to the swap address. You will lose your tokens if you do so! Instead, transfer from exchange wallet → normal wallet → swap address.

The current version of Trust Wallet is not working properly. Please use other wallet before we have further announcement. If you already used it to process the swap, please notice that your native tokens have already arrived and they are safe. You will be able to access the corresponding IoTeX wallet to check balance in the next version.

---------------------
⚠ We will start all tokens swap in Q3. Before that, ERC20 IOTX will still be our major and prioritized token. You are very welcomed to swap now, but it is not required.


IOTX (native) is listed on Piexgo!

514

Piexgo is the 1st exchange which supports IoTeX Mainnet native token. Getting prepared for the coming token swap at the end of Q3!

✅ Trading Pairs:
Native IOTX / USDT
Native IOTX / BTC
Native IOTX / ETH

➡Download IoTeX Desktop Wallet at
https://github.com/iotexproject/iotex-explorer/releases

➡ Use IoTeX Online Wallet at

The total number of staked $IOTX is quickly approaching 40% of the circulating supply. Thrilling to see delegates who ranked 18-24th now be promoted as consensus delegates in the next few days! Such an important milestone for making iotex more secure/decentralized/democratic (Raullen Chai)


IoTeX Post-Mainnet Roadmap: VITA Token, Member Portal, & AvoBoard
532

Vitality (VITA) Community Token
The first token to be launched on the IoTeX Network will be Vitality (VITA) — the IoTeX Community token. Why Vitality? Because it represents the essence of the IoTeX community:

534

IoTeX community can earn VITA by supporting IoTeX in various ways: staking/voting, referrals, community tasks (marketing, testing, surveys), and exchanging IOTX-to-VITA. VITA tokens will be redeem-able for IoTeX swag, IoT product giveaways, crypto lotteries, and exclusive prizes. The best part? All of the ways to earn and spend VITA will be integrate with the IoTeX Member Portal — the one-stop shop for all things Blockchain+IoT (see next section for full details).
With VITA, we are putting community governance and incentives onto the blockchain — real, decentralized, and transparent transactions! Our future plans include integrating VITA into the Member Portal, IoTeX Forum (to create Steemit-like incentives), and third party websites and dApps.

VITA Launch Timeline
June will be the official launch month for VITA! Are you ready to start earning VITA? Look out for new announcements in the coming week, and join the new VITA Discord (coming soon). Check out our launch timeline below:

Week of June 10 — VITA Launch
  • VITA Airdrop to Genesis voters
  • Launch of official VITA Discord channel
  • VITA can be claimed via IoTeX Web Wallet
  • IOTX can be exchanged for VITA
  • Community campaigns to win IOTX + VITA!
Rest of June
  • First batch of IoT product giveaways on Discord
  • Cryptocurrency lotteries on Discord
  • New ways to earn and spend VITA!
IoTeX Member Portal
As leaders in the blockchain + IoT space, IoTeX must take responsibility for bridging the blockchain and traditional IoT communities through education, thought leadership, and engagement. The Member Portal is IoTeX’s first step in this initiative — your one-stop shop for all things blockchain + IoT!
  • Enter IoT product giveaways + IOTX lotteries
  • View curated content on blockchain, IoT, and privacy
  • Purchase IoTeX swag available only on the Member Portal
  • Check out exclusive blogs and interviews from IoTeX team
  • Claim community tasks to earn VITA — new tasks every week!

AvoBoard — the Key to Privacy
AvoBoard is IoTeX’s in-house hardware that combines blockchain, trusted hardware, and edge computing to deliver privacy to the IoTeX Network. For over one year, we have designed and built AvoBoard from scratch. This will truly change the blockchain industry — it’s almost time to unleash AvoBoard to the world!
