Districts are decentralized applications, marketplaces and communities that exist as non-custodial, censorship-resistant dapps in the district0x Network. All internet citizens will be able to deploy districts to the network free of charge, forever.
All districts include the following core functionalities and can be extended with auxiliary modules as the creators see fit...
district0x Network Token
Smart Contracts &
IPFS File Storage
At the core of every district is the d0xINFRA Web3 framework, a stack of Solidity smart contracts for the Ethereum Blockchain and front-end libraries distributed on IPFS, which power a district's basic functionalities.
d0xINFRA is designed to be open-source and extendable, allowing districts to implement unique features and enhanced functionality via the plug-in of auxiliary modules.
Aragon is a revolutionary new platform for the deployment of unstoppable decentralized autonomous 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.
Launched 2017 and revamped on Layer2 in 2021 Ethlance is a decentralized job market portal for everyone from freelancers to full-time career seekers. Ethlance is the first district on the district0x network and will operate in perpetuity.
Name Bazaar is a peer-to-peer marketplace for the exchange of ENS domain names registered via the Ethereum Name Service, providing an easily discoverable registry of ENS names available for purchase.
District0x's Meme Factory provides an interface for the creation of meme NFTs as provably rare digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain which can be immediately posted to a marketplace for exchange or upvoted on a leaderboard ranking.
Stream Tide is a grants matching platform. For each supporter that backs a creator, the grant pool will match this with a quadratic funding mechanism, turning a small amount of support into a much larger grant award.
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 decentralization.
Upon deployment of the district design & creation platform, all internet citizens will be able to quickly launch districts on the district0x Network. Powered by the decentralized web3, district0x provides the liberty to build, free from censorship and intermediaries.
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 - DNT.
The district0x Network Token is a multi-utility token which is required for application to the district0x Network, utilized in an incentivized voting mechanism to dictate access to a suite of ancillary services exclusive to network stakeholders, used to signal support or disapproval for proposals made by network participants, and which can be staked to deposit pools to mint tokens providing district-specific voting rights on third-party platforms such as Aragon.
Voting rights can be used to partake in the processes that determine everything from a district's creation, it's design and branding, its functionality, to its accepted code of conduct, to the integrations it utilizes, and beyond.
The District Registry is a decentrally maintained district whitelist, storing the credentials of districts which have been granted access to the district0x Network. Based on an incentivized voting game called a Token-Curated Registry, inclusion of a district in the District Registry signifies that the district has been accredited by district0x Network Token holders as non-malicious and value-additive to the district0x Network.Check out the Registry
