IoTeX is an open source network — an experiment in mindshare and collaboration, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Although much of the research and development of IoTeX thus far has come from the core team, a new era of IoTeX is coming soon. We are ready for diverse groups of developers to take the lead on building tools, services, and dApps using the infrastructure and features of the IoTeX Mainnet. It is now time to officially deliver IoTeX to the true owners: the IoTeX developer community and users!
The goal of IoTeX from Day 1 has been to provide a secure and feature-rich platform to enable new blockchain-powered IoT and privacy use cases. Step 1 of creating a state-of-the-art blockchain will be realized with the launch of Mainnet Alpha. The next steps of adding open source tools (i.e., SDKs, explorers, wallets) and new dApps / services (i.e., DEX, stable coins, oracles) will involve the entire IoTeX developer / user community. We can’t wait to see what you will build on the IoTeX network!
Today, we are proud to announce our developers who are running as IoTeX Delegates: Consensus Networks, CryptoLions, IoTASK, IoTeX Geeks, iotexhub, iotexmainnet, IoTeXTeam, Keys IoTeX, SlowMist, Super IoTeX, and WanNodes!
