Millix founders intend to put millix in the hands of at least one billion people.
Below is a sequence of the founder's plan to distribute millix from genesis to end user. The plan will be executed with intention and deliberation over multiple years to put millix into the hands of those who contribute the greatest value. Everyone with millix can decide how best to use it, which will determine and reshape how continued redistribution evolves over time.
Every human is a candidate to contribute in at least one of the roles above. The larger the contribution, the larger the potential for receiving millix
the ecosystem support program (ESP) exists to provide both financial and non-financial support to projects and entities within the greater millix community in order to accelerate the growth of the ecosystem. Our focus is on deploying our resources where they will have the biggest impact. if you have a project and want to see if ESP is a good fit, then please click here.
millix is an open source cryptocurrency project. millix is fully decentralized, designed for simplicity, transacts at very high speed and very large scale.
work began on the project in spring of 2018 by a diverse group of developers and business professionals. their motivation to create a cryptocurrency protocol with the use case potential of millix came from their backgrounds building:
social network platforms
content management systems
data distribution systems
online financial services
manufacturing and logistics operations
accounting and legal practices
fundamentally, there was a recognition that
which influenced the following set of first principles:
currencies should not be created with debt
currencies should operate at infinite scale
the cost of securing value can't exceed the value it secures
a currency's market value should be proportionate to its fundamental value
participants that increase fundamental value should be compensated
currencies should function without carrying the weight of previous transactions
currencies should work the same throughout the spectrum of transaction values
modern currencies should be at least as simple to use as primitive currencies
simplicity at the edge is only possible with equal simplicity in the foundation
to the extent there is an inverted correlation between utility and a store of value, millix is not intended to compete with the use case or feature set of blockchain projects. the utility that comes from scale and speed has been prioritized, leading to the principles and methodologies described above.

the total allocation of 9,000,000,000,000,000 mlx (nine quadrillion millix) were created in a genesis event on January 20th , 2020. millix is not being offered directly for sale. instead it will be distributed to participants who support and improve the millix ecosystem.
participants running millix software constantly receive millix for performing protocol related tasks that improve the millix ecosystem, such as storing transaction data and verifying transactions.
the economy is envisioned to allow any participant to incentivize any computing activity by any other participant via fees.

unlike blockchain cryptocurrencies, millix is built on the logic of Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) for transaction speed and capacity that increases as more transactions and users are added.
millix is original work and was not built on a copied code base of existing work. millix has no points of centralization. millix has no designed bottlenecks. millix has no hierarchy of participants of capabilities. millix data is natively sharded.

the initial millix road map consisted of the following themes:
base organization and functionality
connecting millix protocol to machines for large scale transactions
large scale transaction speed and storage
a community of earning
store and own your personal data
