Terminology and Acronyms
Definition in the context of this documentation
Any person, organisation, or machine who has control over a self-sovereign digital identifier (DID), to transact in Internet of Impact networks
Novel impact finance tool with risk-adjusted bonding curve used to provide dynamic risk assessment for funding outcome-based social impact projects.
Decentralized, immutable transaction record secured by cryptography and consensus mechanisms.
The base form of any type of organisation, which is represented by a digital identifier (DID); cyber-cellular organisation to coordinate the activities of agents.
An autonomous, decentralised, sovereign data store and software agent which performs actions on behalf of one or more controller agents.
Cell Node Config
Observed state in the world, submitted by an agent.
Issued to DIDs by Trust Seeds to create stateful trust graph; grants rights, access, or verifies as a trusted entity.
The Internet of Blockchains, formed by networks built on the Cosmos SDK and Tendermint consensus engine, which are interconnected through the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol
A W3C standard digital identifier
Person or entity who delegates tokens for staking and/or voting with a selected validator.
See Decentralised Identifier
DID Document (DDO)
A set of data describing an Entity Node (the DID subject) in ixo protocol networks; stateful digital record as a collection of JSON-LD attributes and objects related to DID.
Network of interconnected blockchains or devices.
Interoperability protocol for communicating arbitrary data between arbitrary state machines.
A decentralised identifier (DID) which has been purposed to identify digital assets which are located within blockchain name-spaces
Digital asset which represents interest in the impact economy and its impact claims.
Name of the open-source project that is building the Internet of Impact. Not an acronym.
The native utility token of the Internet of Impact Hub
Agent who cultivates, facilitates, and supports projects, activities, and actors within a regional impact market.
AI or human reporting agent attesting to state.
Defined by a set of 10 Precision Impact Functions: Proofing, Prediction, Personalisation, Prescription, Planning, Proposing, Prevention, Protection, Profiling, and Participation.
Oracle that provides Precision Impact Functions (P-functions).
Collected data that supports a claim.
Validator Node operators of the Impact Hub are referred to as Relayers.
The data requirements needed to properly satisfy a valid claim.
The observed, verifiable condition of the world. Or, the digital representation of this observed state recorded on blockchain as claim.
A medium of value. Digital asset representing a denominated unit of value or, in the case of a Non-Fungible Token, the representation of a real asset or claim.
A computer server that validates blockchain transactions through peer-to-peer consensus mechanisms.
The process of verifying the authenticity and the accuracy of a transaction by verifying cryptographic credentials and blockchain state.
The process of evaluating the veracity of a claim.
Claim which has been verified by evaluation entities such as a Verification Agent, Auditor, or Arbitrator.
DID associated, encrypted, secured data store, such as ixo Keysafe, that holds an Agent's tokens and digital assets.
ixo Protocol Networks may be independently configured into zones that have their own security, governance and economic mechanisms.
