A network of decentralized markets and communities. Create, operate, and govern. Powered by Ethereum, Aragon, and IPFS.

What are districts?

Districts are marketplaces and communities that exist as decentralized autonomous organizations on the district0x Network. All internet citizens will be able to deploy districts to the network free of charge, forever.

All districts possess the following core functionalities...

The d0xINFRA Framework

At the core of every district is the d0xINFRA framework, a stack of Ethereum smart contracts and front-end libraries distributed on IPFS which power a district's basic functionalities.

d0xINFRA is designed to be open and extendable, allowing districts to implement unique features and enhanced functionality via the plug-in of auxiliary modules.

Governance by Aragon

Aragon is a revolutionary new platform for the deployment of unstoppable virtual organizations and entities. The creation of a district on the district0x Network will establish an accompanying Aragon entity, where all of the district’s governance and decision making processes will be executed.

Districts Powered By district0x

Ethlance

Launched in January 2017, Ethlance is a decentralized job market for everyone from freelancers to full-time career seekers alike. Ethlance is the first district on the district0x network and will operate in perpetuity.

ENS Bazaar

Name Bazaar

Currently under development, Name Bazaar is a peer-to-peer marketplace for the exchange of names registered via the Ethereum Name Service, providing an easily discoverable registry of ENS names available for purchase.

Meme Factory

Meme Factory

The third district to be deployed, Meme Factory will provide an interface for the creation of provably rare digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain which can be immediately posted to a bulletin board-style marketplace for exchange.

Future district0x Projects

The district0x Project team will continue to deploy districts to the district0x Network indefinitely, simultaneously serving as sandboxes for the refinement of the d0xINFRA framework while showcasing the powers of decentralized markets and communities.

Your Very Own District

Upon deployment of the district creation platform, all internet citizens will be able to quickly launch districts on the district0x Network. Powered by the decentralized web, district0x provides the liberty to build, free from censorship and intermediaries.

The district0x Network Token

To provide all internet citizens with an opportunity to freely join and contribute to any district, to align incentives across all of a district’s participants, and to implement coordinated decision-making mechanisms to the district0x Network, we introduce the district0x Network Token.

The district0x Network Token (DNT) is a staking token, used by holders to join districts and participate in their governance. Upon staking district0x Network Tokens to a district, participants receive an equivalent amount of voting rights in the district.

Voting rights can be used to partake in the processes that determine everything from a district’s branding, to its accepted code of conduct, to the auxiliary modules that are integrated, to the way that fees collected by revenue-generating auxiliary modules are utilized, and beyond.

What Should We Build Next?

We encourage and incentivize the submission of marketplace ideas via an open community proposal process. The district0x Network Token allows holders to signal for what markets they would like to see the district0x team build and deploy to the network next.
