IOST, short for Internet-of-Services Token, has been listed on Bitpanda. The vision of IOST is to develop a fast and decentralised blockchain technology infrastructure, making it scalable for global adoption. Find out more and learn how you could win some IOST.
Update (the 29th of June 2021): Thank you for participating and congratulations to the lucky winners. All prizes have been paid out.
IOST was founded in 2018 by serial entrepreneur Jimmy Zhong, who has launched start-ups in the US and China. His vision for IOST was to create a fast and decentralised blockchain technology infrastructure, making it scalable for global adoption and more appealing for large corporations to use blockchain technology.
IOST uses its proprietary algorithm called “Proof of Believability” (PoB). As an alternative to “Proof of Stake”, PoB relies not only on token balance, but also on the nodes’ “believability score” which is based on the node’s transaction history. This concept enables true decentralisation through hundreds of nodes supported on the network, high levels of security, ultra-fast and gas-free transactions and high throughput. To date, more than half a billion transactions have been processed and around 4.56 billion IOST has been staked.
The name refers to both the foundation and the token. The IOST foundation is backed by venture capital firms such as Sequoia Capital and Matrix Partners. Japan’s Financial Services Agency has given regulatory approval to IOST for trading in the country, reinforcing their trust in the project. IOST has a maximum supply of 90 billion tokens with a total circulating supply of 16.5 billion in June 2021.
More recently, IOST has also joined the NFT game. While Non-Fungible Tokens were initially created on the Ethereum network, IOST wants to provide an alternative with their own NFT standard, aiming to be more cost-efficient than Ethereum’s NFT infrastructure.
