IPX — The Grand Finale Of 2019 — Listing and Performance

Tachyon Protocol’s native token, IPX was listed on South Korea’s leading cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb and its global platform Bithumb Global on 17th December 2019 with KRW and USDT trading pairs respectively. This is IPX’s first listing on an exchange and that too with a fiat on-ramp. To mark the occasion, Tachyon Protocol is hosting an airdrop event with 1M $IPX to be given away to active traders on Bithumb. The event will be live till the 19th of December midnight. As of writing time, on Bithumb Global, IPX has so far managed USD 1.4M in 24 hour trading volume with price hovering around 0.1 USD. On Bithumb, IPX is currently trading at KRW 120 (~USD 0.1). Trading opened at KRW 60 (~USD 0.05) and reached a peak of KRW 240 (~USD 0.21) before stabilising at KRW 120 (~USD 0.1) levels which is a 2x from the open price. The 24 hour trading volume on Bithumb has reached ~KRW 46Bn (~USD 39M). With active trades happening across both platforms, IPX now has a marketcap of USD 16M (~KRW 19.2Bn).


Amidst growing concerns of data theft and mass surveillance, Tachyon Protocol provides an alternative to standard TCP/IP using its own versions of proven P2P technologies — blockchain, DHT, UDP and encryption to ensure data security and anonymity over the new internet. Its first use-case is a decentralised VPN service whose architecture was completed this month. The DeVPN alpha version will be released in Q1 of 2020 over iOS, Android and Windows. The network is planned to be entirely driven by community nodes and Pre-Mining has already started.


IPX is the native cryptocurrency of Tachyon Protocol and is based on the V Systems blockchain. It has a total supply of 1Bn. Provider nodes contributing to the network win IPX rewards for their activity. These nodes offer traffic to network users to win these ‘session’ rewards. In order to get verified on the network before offering services, the nodes must have at least 200k IPX tokens. The staked tokens also lead to staking rewards for the nodes from the platform. IPX can also be used for governance and to trade spare bandwidth. With the Pre-Mining Program and listing on Bithumb, IPX is now both mineable and tradeable. This lays the groundwork for the expansion of the IPX economy and release of Tachyon’s VPN service and SDK next year.

The Tachyon Protocol sounds like it has the potential to be a game changer for sure. The IPX token associated with is is one to watch.

Tachyon does seem interesting given its backers have a history is deploying battle-tested software. There are a few other projects working on the internet stack as well. Great space to watch out for in the next few years.

They had launched a limited time pre-mining for the first set of nodes recently. Would have shared the link. But I think it is closed now.
