ThingsIX is a decentralized global Internet of Things network, built to reward gateway operators for providing reliable coverage and for delivering reliable data to end users by using blockchain technology.

ThingsIX introduces unique trusted mapping hardware to give a new dimension to network coverage and validation. Any existing or new LoRa®-gateway will be able to join the ThingsIX network.

ThingsIX is built on

Bringing together the best of technology.

No value without coverage. ThingsIX uses secure and trusted mappers to determine real-world practical coverage provided by gateways.
All participants receive a fair compensation for their contribution to ThingsIX.

ThingsIX is designed to support mission-critical applications with high availability requirements.

ThingsIX is governed by a non-profit foundation. All transactions occur on a public blockchain for everybody to see, verify and direct interact with.
2022 Q1
Proof of concept
In January 2022 the idea behind ThingsIX was born. The ThingsIX Core Developers designed and built the first prototype ThingsIX mappers and wrote the first proof-of-concept code. Proving that the idea could be turned into reality.
2022 Q3
ThingsIX Foundation
In June 2022 the ThingsIX Foundation (formally "Stichting ThingsIX Foundation") was established in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, taking headquarters in the Evoluon, the landmark of Dutch engineering.
2022 Q4
Data Network
In 2022 Q4 we plan to launch the data network of ThingsIX, allowing LoRa®-gateway operators to start exchanging LoRa® packets with end-users. At this moment no rewards will be paid and documentation will be limited.
2023 Q1
Beta ThingsIX Mappers
In 2023 Q1 we plan to supply the first (EU868-based) Beta ThingsIX mappers to interested participants to be ready once the network fully launched
2023 Q2
Launch of ThingsIX Main-net
Later in 2023 Q2 we will fully launch the ThingsIX Main-net. This will mark the start of the issuance of rewards in ThingsIX ERC20-tokens on the Polygon L2 blockchain. Rewards will be used based on the coverage mapped by ThingsIX Mappers.
2024 Q1
Adding support for Less-Secure Mappers
Beginning of 2024 regular LoRaWAN® mappers supplied by ThingsIX Router operators will be able to do Less-Secure Mapping
2024 Q2
Global support of ThingsIX Mappers
In 2024 we will expand the support of ThingsIX mappers for other frequencies and regions to achieve global support.
The ThingsIX Foundation will receive a share of the rewards to be able to maintain and develop the ThingsIX Network forever.
