INT (Internet Node Token)
Born for DApps, use-case driven. Build the new ecosystem of the Internet of Things.
INT is the world's first bottom up new-generation blockchain of things (BoT) communication standard and base application platform. The ecosystem is specifically designed for easy integration with any IoT protocol.
To both improve and encourage device interconnectivity, we have built an economy driven ecosystem by providing token-incentives through a decentralized TCP/IP based architecture of IoT. This new business model, molded by IoT devices, will support an entirely new ecosystem of the Internet of Things.
High-performance blockchain infrastructure to promote the future IoT ecosystem and its applications
Use case driven approach
The core principle of INT’s public chain development is to align its network functions with real-world applications. This use case driven approach ensures that the design and innovation of the INT public chain architecture evolves to meet new and current IoT application scenarios.
Innovative "double-chain" network architecture
A Thearchy Chain, consisting of elected thearchy (meta) nodes, will drive consensus and generate blocks for each subchain. This requires the subchains and their (miner) nodes to only validate transactions, thus achieving consensus more efficiently.
Advanced decentralized P2P protocol
In the non-DHT P2P network environment, INT proposes an innovative BDT protocol that makes mainnet operation more adaptable to node mobility and the heterogeneous requirements of new IoT application scenarios.
Effective token economic incentive
INT has set-up effective token economics and incentives to promote the implementation of software-define-resource (SDN) technology through its Blockchain. By incentivising the equipment to conduct resource transactions based on ensuring security and inter-chain trust in an economic-driven model, INT will promote a new ecosystem of the Internet of Things.
Custom smart contract development
INT uses tailored smart contracts and cross-chain protocol technology in a public chain environment to achieve broader application development for different devices. It also allows for a lower threshold of BoT application development and promotes more flexible real-world use cases.
Leading application development framework
INT provides a set of integrated and optimized SDN, blockchain and fog computing technologies that follow the “cycle progressive application” model (i.e. application verification, R&D optimization, application implementation and iterative verification). INT uses these development techniques to promote the implementation of scenario applications for its partners such as Zhejiang Telecom, ZTE and HICC.
Combining technical strength and vision to create an efficient value platform
More stable interconnection
INT's new generation P2P protocol switches seamlessly between TCP and UDP. It also introduces the decentralized Thearchy Node mechanism which supports reverse connection, enabling INT Chain to guarantee efficient communication and optimization of connection even in complex environments of multiple operators, multiple computer rooms and multi-line BGP.
The INT mainnet uses BDT’s own congestion control kernel and algorithm to greatly improve the broadcast transmission of the blockchain network, while also providing customized optimization functions for specific items.

More efficient broadcast
The INT Chain network uses a cluster-oriented decentralized topology organised around the Thearchy Nodes. It minimizes messages used to stabilize the DHT structure, implements broadcast message source tracking, and improves flooding performance.
Node Plan
The "Thearchy Chain" is the core of the INT's entire architecture, which consists of servers provided by device manufacturers, community leaders and ecological enterprises (namely Thearchy Nodes). INT Chain Thearchy Nodes will be generated by the community voting and there will be 13 Thearchy Nodes.
