ThreeFold’s ecosystem is powered by the ThreeFold Token (TFT). It is not an
investment vehicle or a way for short term gains or speculation, but a way to participate in a new P2P internet.
TFT is the only way to rent compute and storage capacity on the ThreeFold Grid - which
has the potential to gain significant market share in today's public cloud market.

The ThreeFold Grid's capacity is made available by farmers - entrepreneurs who
provide capacity by connecting hardware to the ThreeFold Grid. This is the moment
when TFTs are created.
ThreeFold Farmer adds capacity to
the grid and is rewarded with TFT.
Using an exchange, farmers can then swap their TFTs for other currencies.
Users who wish to host or develop on the ThreeFold Grid can purchase TFTs from an exchange using other currencies.
Users pay farmers for capacity
(storage and compute) with TFT.
Each TFT represents underlying internet capacity and can be
exchanged for capacity at any time. It is the exclusive medium
of exchange for internet capacity on the ThreeFold Grid.
TFTs are exclusively generated when new capacity is added to
the ThreeFold Grid. There is no centralized issuance. Tokens have
not been created out of thin air and no ICO/IEO ever took place.
A maximum of 4 billion TFT can ever be created. This limit ensures
stakeholders are incentivized and rewarded through both the short
and long terms.
TFT lives on the Stellar Blockchain. TFT holders benefit from
a big ecosystem of proven wallets and mediums of exchange.
Stellar's mission to promote financial inclusion is completely
aligned with the ThreeFold's vision for an inclusive internet.
By employing Stellar technology, TFT transactions and smart contracts are
powered by one of the most energy-efficient blockchains available.
