[Short general description]:
IP.SX is a decentralized exchange for sharing IPs, resting on a smart contract based, incentivized mechanism of sharing among actors from all over the world, effectively creating a framework for building applications which require IPs built in a reliable and open source environment.
IPSX presents itself as the first decentralized IP Sharing Marketplace, which will create a global marketplace for IPs.
[Main problems tackled]:
1) Combining flexible tools (SDKs and APIs) to aid entrepreneurs and developers in a fully secured and transparent environment to develop new applications on top of the already existing IPs on the IPSX sharing platform. It will become a framework and a marketplace for new applications that require IPs at their backbone (VPN providers, Data Mining software, web crawling bots, micro tasks)
2) Substantially lowering the price of IPs and solving the IPs accessibility and availability problems, IPSX is aiming to become a key ecosystem for all the fields that require larger or smaller volumes of IPs, allowing complex applications from Data Mining and other fields to become more accessible to everyone.
3) IPSX connects actors in a peer-to-peer network, enabling both data center owners and individual users, that will be called "providers" to rent IPs to other users, that will be called "requesters". The IPs can be used to complete different tasks requiring one or more IPs from different locations.
4) IPSX core built-in feature set is a dedicated Ethereum-based transaction system, which enables direct payments between requesters and providers, solving all the above mentioned problems, increasing the liquidity of the IPs and allowing any actor that has an IP on his internet connected device, to take part into a multi-billion yearly business, that otherwise would be closed to home internet users.
[Main contribution proposal]:
Blockchain based system fully automated, with full clearing of IPs, associated with utility tokens.
The use of Blockchain Technology advantages:
1) integrate cross platform clients
2) create a marketplace where the request will meet the offer for IP services
3) sharing / renting IPs using custom filters time frame / price / GeoLocation / protocol
4) manage micropayments using ETH protocols and smart contracts
5) record all “transactions” (IP shares owner/ client) in the blockchain
1) IPSX allows all the actors to participate in the internal economy of the ecosystem and provides a way of supporting the decentralized vision, shared economy and generating revenues.
2) Better data-sharing
3) IPSX will provide the easiest way for users from all over the world to help the Internet in becoming a fully decentralized and free of the actual less fair interests of different actors, by sharing IPs in an easy and totally transparent way among worldwide users and providing the fuel of truly decentralization for the Internet.
