The IXO Token Drop
At the end of August 2021, the IXO staking token will become publicly available to enable anyone to become a stakeholder in the Internet of Impact, enabling anyone to participate in building and growing the Tokenised Impact Economy.
IXO is the staking token of the ixo-Cosmos blockchain Impact Hub, a global network of zero-emission validator nodes, secured by Proof of Stake, which forms the backbone of the new Internet of Impact.
2 Steps to get your IXO Token Drop
Don't have have an Impact Wallet address? Here's how to get yours.
To grow stakeholder participation and promote access to the Internet of Impact, the genesis validators of the ixo(Impact Hub) have voted to distribute up to 5% of the IXO token supply (5 million IXO) to communities of users who are aligned with the Internet of Impact vision.
This campaign targets people and organisations who believe that trusted digital technologies can be used responsibly and widely adopted to become a powerful force for sustainable prosperity and planetary regeneration.
By offering an airdrop of IXO tokens through the networks of aligned partners, together with free membership of the new Earth State information-sharing platform, through which we will increase knowledge, promote usage, accelerate adoption of the Internet of Impact, and grow participation in the Tokenised Impact Economy.
By extending this offer to new subscribers from other networks who see the value of making a financial contribution to receive the benefits of subscribing to Earth State membership, we hope to introduce new vested stakeholders into the Cosmos ecosystem, and to further grow participation in the Tokenised Impact Economy.

As an IXO token-holder you will become a stakeholder in The Internet of Impact and the Tokenised Impact Economy
The Internet of Impact
The ixo-Cosmos blockchain Internet of Impact will provide the Internet-scale digital financing and data infrastructure, which is urgently needed to optimally sense and respond to the changing social, environmental, and economic state of the world and to mitigate impacts of the climate crisis.
This new Internet is stateful, graph-based, programmable, trusted and zero-emission. It implements the ixo Protocol, which defines a new open standard for producing verifiable claims about changes in the state of the world, which are the basis for impact creators to mint non-fungible (NFT) Impact Tokens.
The Impact Hub provides the backbone for the Internet of Impact and will interconnect autonomous Impact Zone networks through the Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC) and route via the Cosmos Hub into the broader universe of blockchain networks and the Cosmos Gravity DEX.
Through these interconnected networks, blockchain application developers and users everywhere will gain access to networked marketplaces of services, capital, verified data for sustainability and ecological regeneration, and decentralised impact exchanges, through which to generate sustainable capital flows.
Tokenised Impact Markets are being built on the ixo Internet of Impact
Since early 2020, leading organisations across all geographic regions and impact sectors have already been building impact marketplace platforms on ixo test-nets. These market platforms will connect global and local networks of capital, investors, project implementers, oracle service providers, and impact agents.
Users of these platforms will get much better market access, tools and applications, to programme capital through sustainable and regenerative DeFi mechanisms, make verifiable claims which are backed by high-quality data, and produce verifiable outcome states, which can be tokenised as non-fungible Impact Tokens, to be traded through decentralised impact exchanges.
As a flagship example, the Impact Data Consortium Chain market relayer, supported by a grant from the government of Hong Kong Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fund, is providing technical assistance and capacity-building to onboard 500 social-purpose organisations that will use the ixo-Cosmos blockchain and software applications to track and report on their impacts. A community currency pilot, supported by the Interchain Foundation, will digitize local time-bank cooperatives and initiate the path towards sustainable and regenerative DeFi in Asia.
Together with a leading financial institution, The ixo Foundation is piloting Alphabonds for results-based financing of primary education in India, using remote learning technology which integrates with the blockchain.
In Africa, ixo will be used as the platform for financing, incentivizing, and verifying skills development and connect millions of youth to employment and entrepreneurship opportunities, with a focus on the green economy.
