With FOSDEM 2023 kicking off this week, we are happy to welcome IoTeX as the latest addition to the Oniro family. IoTeX joins our continually growing ecosystem as a Silver member.


With a focus on decentralized networks, IoTeX shares the Oniro vision, which is to power billions of devices and decentralized applications across the physical and digital world. Oniro will provide the foundation for IoTeX research scientists and top engineers to combine blockchain, trusted hardware, and edge computing. The addition of IoTeX will lead to a stronger and more diverse open source platform for IoT & Edge applications.

"The addition of IoTeX to the Oniro Project opens new and exciting possibilities for the platform within the machine economy," says Agustín Benito Bethencourt, Oniro Program Manage at Eclipse Foundation. "We welcome IoTeX to the Oniro team and look forward to their contributions."

Dr. Chai, formerly from Google, Uber, and Oracle, said "IoTeX is extremely pleased to contribute to global open source, which he says has facilitated the development of the most innovative software."

"Open source software is often more flexible and of higher quality than commercial software because it is developed by thousands of developers from around the world versus commercial one, which is created by a reduced team,” Chai added.
