WHAT WE DO

count what matters, value what counts

WHAT MATTERS

Sustainability

The Impact Economy is valued at more than $3 Trillion USD annually and growing.

Investing in what counts will achieve UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all by 2030.
Sustainable Development matters at all levels of society, for all people and in all countries.

WHAT COUNTS

Impact Data

We need a data revolution for sustainable development.

ixo is a protocol that Tokenizes Impact Data with Proof of Impact

Impact Data drives capital funding and investments into impact. Good information produces better results.

WHAT WE VALUE

Impact Optimization

The ixo Blockchain offers optimization of impact over time:

  • Provenance of impact data
  • Transparency of funding
  • Accountability for performance
  • Attribution of results
  • A new asset class for the Impact Economy
  • Data sharing marketplace (with the Ocean Protocol)

The ixo Protocol

The ixo protocol uses Web3C standard data formats, blockchain networks, and smart contracts to optimize the process for collecting, measuring, and evaluating impact claims and the issuance of impact credits.

Ultimately the protocol produces rich, verified impact data assets with Proof of Impact that is recorded on the Global Impact Ledger.

Use Case

The Amply project, supported by UNICEF and Innovation Edge, built a mobile app using the ixo protocol to track attendance in pre-schools in South Africa. Every morning, the teacher logs each child’s attendance in the app as an impact claim, an evaluator confirms the attendance, and a verified impact claim is created. The verified claim can then be shown to the government in return for subsidies for underprivileged children
The ixo protocol has helped the teachers upgrade their previously paper-based system saving over 4,000 hours every month. Since November 2016, the project has grown to operate in over 71 schools and has recorded more than 53,000 attendance records.

By optimizing how preschool subsidies are delivered, ixo is ensuring there is more time for what really matters – teaching.
