IoTeX Mainnet — Staking/Voting & The Grand Design

While we are extremely focused on launching the Mainnet and IoTeX root chain, we are always thinking ahead about the bigger picture of IoTeX Network for the next 5–10 years. Our long-term design employs Separation of Powers, a term coined by Charles-Louis de Secondat, which states that political authority should be divided into legislative, executive and judicial powers. Inspired by this concept, the grand vision for IoTeX utilizes four layers with unique roles.

Technical Development Updates

  • ioctl, a comprehensive command line tool for interacting with blockchain
