We are embarking on a bold mission for Cosmos to become the leading blockchain ecosystem for sustainable and regenerative digital finance.

The Mission

Cosmos will become the leading sustainable and regenerative digital finance ecosystem

The future of humanity is being decided by the actions we are taking today and by our impacts…


Immunity Bonds are an application of the ixo Alphabond sustainable DeFi innovation, which we propose could finance and incentivise pupulation-wide public health interventions for the next generation of Covid epidemic control.

We recently published an article introducing an initiative in which ixo is a technology partner, to create the next…


The vision of creating a digital immune system for humanity took on new meaning and relevance since the start of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Now we are making progress on implementing this vision to transform how the world senses and responds to Covid and its ongoing variant outbreaks.

Covid Sense-and-Response networks

We have…

The InterNFT Working Group is drafting a set of Interchain standards that will advance the state of the art for Non-fungible Tokens and the Metadata associated with uniquely identified…


ixo is leading a collaboration with Persistence One, to develop Interchain Standards for NFTs and Metadata. This is relevant to further development of the ixo Protocol, for tokenising social, environmental and economic development outcomes. It will further enable the movement towards a tokenised Impact Economy. …


The rising tide of the impact economy is driven by capital flows from traditional funding sources. However, this comes with growing costs of knowing (or not knowing) whether the investments are achieving impact. …


This article continues the series of explorations into the features of the Cosmos blockchain and Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol, within the context of the ixo network, which is building on Cosmos to provide the infrastructure for a decentralised internet of impact.

Bonding is a fundamental organising principle in nature, which enables complex, information-rich structures to evolve that are capable of surviving threats

Electronic rights and object capabilities

The Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol will enable electronic rights…


We need additional crypto-economic mechanisms for building more sustainable financing applications, such as tokenised impact bonds, that can dynamically adapt to changing risks over time within complex systems. Let’s begin this experimentation with a risk-adjusted token bonding curve pricing oracle.

Are fixed token bonding curves broken?

Most current implementations of Token Bonding Curves only support fixed…


Cosmic Bonding enables developers to build any application that needs to use algorithmically-determined token pricing to mint, burn or swap tokens on any Cosmos network implementing our SDK module.

Engineering token bonding curves

Algorithmic pricing functions (aka token bonding curves) have many potential use-case applications. …


Verifiable Claims are a new type of data resource with high-definition qualities. This is an important novel class of information, as high-definition data has very many useful applications in the digital world that could profoundly change how society operates in the physical world. …
