utility

The Token is designed to have real utility: they are the payment mechanism for buying and selling Internet IT capacity on our grid.

WHY A NEW NEUTRAL EDGE INTERNET

The need for internet capacity is growing fast, in both the number of users around the globe and more connected devices in already established regions. Current architecture hyperscale datacenters are not able to cope with this demand as the requirements for power and funding are too big.

The Foundation believes the solution to this trillion dollar problem is the migration of internet infrastructure capacity to the “Edge”, close to where the users of the internet are. Today’s infrastructure is heavily centralized: few big corporations in the world own more than 80% of the internet capacity, resulting in inequalities in distribution.

Over the last decades we have developed a technology which allows IT (Information Technology) to behave much like a real utility, consuming up to 10 times less energy and 100% self healing without involvement of IT specialists.

ThreeFold wants to deploy capacity in this new paradigm local to the users where needed, managed by smaller clusters and nodes, and funded by all of us by means of a new digital currency.

WHY A NEW NEUTRAL INTERNET

WHY A NEW DIGITAL CURRENCY

Decentralized digital currencies are here to stay, due to their significant benefits such as direct peer to peer transactions, immutability of transactions as secured by cryptography and mathematics and the absence of a single point of failure that decentralized protocols bring.

However, major problems remain such as a lack of scalability, impossible energy requirements, certain perceived reputational issues - and most importantly, a general absence of intrinsic value (ie backing by real assets) and limited use of digital currencies to buy goods and services (ie utility).

WHY A NEW DIGITAL CURRENCY

The TF token is a utility token backed by sustainable and scalable IT capacity

Our dream

We live in very interesting times, the world has never changed so quickly.
We want to help at the positive side and help the world to become a better place.

The Foundation has 3 focal points

Green & Power Efficient Internet

By changing the way how the internet is expanding and by building a more efficient IT infrastructure, we save tremendous amounts of energy (upto 10 times).

Education & Equal Chances

By providing internet capacity all over the world close to the users, we improve performance and allow anyone to get access to the required resources for their business or education at affordable prices

A Utility Currency

 Digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are super popular, but they are not backed by assets and are very speculative. We want to create a token with actual utility and purpose.

We want to empower anyone to become part of the ThreeFold Foundation and work with us to accomplish our objectives. The Foundation is a 100% transparent tokenized organization driven by a strong set of values. You can join us by buying & using tokens - or become one of our Miners or Farmers.

AVAILABLE CAPACITY ON THE THREEFOLD GRID.
 

Importantly, our technology is 100% open source and is proven and operational already today.
Before the Public Token Offering, we expect our Grid infrastructure to be deployed in 200+ locations.
The value of the total available storage and compute capacity generated over 4 years by these nodes would exceed $100,000,000.
