Ionomy digital currency
For any asset to have long lasting value, it needs to not only be intrinsically strong, but 1) useful, and 2) widely appealing. ION is such an asset. Backed by an innovative platform with a fully integrated digital economy, it is as easy for new users to enter the ecosystem as it is intriguing for cryptocurrency experts, veteran investors, and talented developers. The power of a secure, distributed network combined with an innovative platform and digital economy ensure a sustainable and exciting place for ION holders to store, use, and leverage their assets.
ION is a blockchain based decentralized cryptocurrency that rewards network participation via static proof of stake. ION rewards "connectivity age" instead of “[coin age],” thus eliminating abuse from exchanges and users that do not actively contribute to the network. By having a static reward system, the rewards for participation are proportional to the work every active node contributes. This discourages centralization and promotes network health. In addition to static rewards, ION implements a [masternode] network to incentivize large holders, and perform advanced functions such as near instant and private transactions.
The long term vision for ION is a thriving cryptocurrency ecosystem centered on gaming and digital goods.
