Ixo has been leading the development of an impact Internet since 2017, through which sustainable decentralized financing (DeFi) and impact verification applications can be deployed and made accessible across the Internet.
The Internet of Impact is formed by interconnecting globally and locally distributed blockchain networks that implement the ixo protocol. It enables an open standard to produce verifiable statements about changes in the state of the world, which are the basis for impact creators to create non-fungible impact tokens (NFTs). The token impact economy, with assets such as token carbon credits, has the potential to fundamentally transform the way markets for capital, goods and services will operate in the years to come.
