About IQ 

IQ token serves both utility and governance purposes, and supports various applications and services within the IQ ecosystem. Like MakerDAO and its Maker (MKR) token, participants can stake IQ tokens and have a say in how the platform evolves through the governing body, BrainDAO. 

The IQ project itself focuses on knowledge and information. It aims to break down complex crypto and blockchain concepts for straightforward grasp through various applications, such as: 

  • IQ.wiki – Blockchain and cryptocurrency encyclopedia, aiming for high accuracy and transparency. 
  • IQ GPT – An AI-powered assistant that uses IQ.wiki knowledge base to potentially provide users with real-time insights and reliable information on industry terms and trends. 
  • IQ.social – A social forum powered by AI explicitly designed for crypto news and insights. It allows users to discuss and learn about the latest industry developments. 

IQ aims to reshape how crypto enthusiasts access and understand information, similar to how Chainlink (LINK) bridges the gap between blockchains and real-world data, to potentially foster a more informed and interconnected crypto ecosystem.
