USA The No-Compromise Delegate for the IoTeX community powered by our mathematically optimal network.

Droute.Capital is offering the IoTex community the optimal route to win block rewards, manage network complexity when running multiple nodes and to maintain an alway-on, reliable network - no losing out on token rewards due to network outage!

This No-Compromise Delegate is powered by DRoute - a revolutionary advancement in block propagation speed and reliability, first being deployed on the IoTeX network.

Our technology lets us deliver a turnkey global autonomous backbone that energizes the IoTeX network with blocks propagating at the theoretical limit, without sacrificing decentralization, anonymity or security.

At its core, DRoute is driven by a Cornell packet network control breakthrough, implemented by MIT technologists, and proven and embraced by global service providers and the National Science Foundation.

Our technology is matched by our business team which brings deep entrepreneurial and blockchain experience. We hope you choose DRoute.Capital.


DRoute.Capital brings a world class team to the IoTeX network. Our founders have launched, grown and exited more than a dozen technology ventures over the last 20 years. We are currently partnered to bring the DRoute technology stack and associated delegation services to life and are excited to launch our first public implementation on the IoTeX network.

Tech Setup

DRoute.Capital is powered by DRoute technology. DRoute is a turnkey global autonomous backbone that energizes all consensus protocols with blocks propagating at the theoretical limit, without sacrificing decentralization, anonymity or security. At its core, DRoute is driven by a Cornell packet network control breakthrough, implemented by MIT technologists, and proven and embraced by global service providers and the National Science Foundation.

DRoute is the mathematically optimal layer 0 network for the decentralized world. A global, high-performant, fully autonomous and censorship resistant Internet-alternative network. We were able to solve the “hash” of the layer 0 network thereby unblocking the blockchain and offering Unparalleled Performance!

DRoute.Capital Tech Setup:
2-core system with 8GB RAM and Docker images on EC2 or GCE

Community Plan

The IoTeX ecosystem will grow based on the number of number of passionate enthusiasts we are able to attract to the project. One of the best way to attract talented development teams is to provide a rock solid consensus layer that delivers always-on, no-compromise network infrastructure so that blocks are produced on time with low latency and high security. This is what DRoute.Capital brings to the table.

Our engineers have spent years building a new networking layer specifically to insure optimal block propagation. This “layer 0” sits below the traditional internet and features an optimally architected, algorithmically driven, super secure alternative network. Like the best of blockchains, control of the network is fully decentralized and privacy optimized so that each network participant can chose when and where to improve their block throughput, security and privacy.

DRoute.Capital will prove out the benefits of this new networking infrastructure with our validator node, and then will open up the technology for all other IoTeX delegates that want to take advantage of it. We are excited to partner, collaborate and connect with all token holders, delegates and tech nodes in the community. If you are interested connect with us we would love to meet up in person, on email or via phone call (if you are in San Francisco let us know - coffee is on us!)

Join our DRoute blog on Medium to keep up with all our latest updates and stories. We will also keep you posted on DRoute.Capital Telegram channel @DRouteCapital for all of our delegate community news.

Reward Distribution Plan

% of epoch bonus reward you will redistribute to voters - 90%. We plan to offer 100% distribution of the epoch rewards for the first 2400 epochs - 100 days (Each epoch is 1 hour).

Payout frequency (i.e., every day, 3 days, week) - weekly

Your plans for other rewards (i.e., voters, infrastructure, dApp funds, profit) we plan to distribute all rewards received to our voters in the same manner as epoch rewards.

Our team has participated in several PoS chain launches (Tezos and Cosmos Game of Stakes) and we recognize that there is an “art” to determining a Reward Distribution strategy that evolves over time as the network participants learn how to optimize their offerings.

At launch, we are currently planning on redistributing 90% of all rewards generated each epoch to our delegators. We are most interested in building a large set of energized delegators who want to take advantage of the returns that our best in class technology will yield. Over time, we suspect that the growth in the value of IOTX - in part because of the success of our infrastructure - will more than compensate us for our efforts on serving this chain.
