IoTeX is a Layer-1 blockchain project that aims to combine the Internet of Things (IoT) with blockchain technology. Launched in 2019, the IoTeX network has demonstrated impressive reliability with zero downtime. The project aims to connect real-world devices, data, and utility to blockchain-based decentralized applications (DApps) to enhance scalability and privacy. IoTeX has introduced innovative devices such as Ucam, a home security camera focused on user privacy and data ownership, and Pebble, which collects data from sensors and converts it into a blockchain-readable format. With their recent launch of W3bstream, a Layer-2 computational oracle for machines, IoTeX is positioning itself to leverage the emerging field of MachineFi. The project exhibits strong potential to lead the IoT industry through the power of blockchain.
IoTeX stands out with its unique approach to integrating IoT and blockchain technology. The project has successfully connected real-world devices, data, and utility to blockchain DApps, offering new possibilities for IoT applications. This innovative concept has the potential to disrupt the traditional IoT industry.
IoTeX’s technological architecture encompasses several key components. The blockchain utilizes Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) consensus and achieves fast consensus and instant finality with 5-second block finality. The project also incorporates a decentralized identity (DID) framework on-chain, real-world data oracles to convert real-world phenomena into blockchain data, and secure hardware utilizing tamper-proof devices with Trusted Execution Environments (TEE).
