It’s time for the October edition of IQ Monthly News! This past month we were working hard towards the launch of IQ v3. There were also several major updates in October including IQ gaining a listing on Coinone, BrainDAO acquiring 2.1 million sFRAX, IQ GPT adding BlockBeats as a source, and a new episode of IQ Times with Bond Protocol.

Introducing IQ v3: Navigating the Future of Blockchain Knowledge and AI

On November 1, we released IQ v3, an update and vision document that outlines BrainDAO’s plan for growing the IQ ecosystem by further integrating artificial intelligence. We will be expanding and IQ GPT as well as launching new products like IQ Code, the first AI tool for coding for blockchain languages like Solidity and Vyper, and, the first AI-powered hub for crypto news which is already live. The IQ v3 launch also marked the day of IQ token's halving event, which reduced token emissions by half. As with Bitcoin and Ethereum, the halvening will reduce inflation and make the token more sustainable and scarce in the long run. As part of IQ v3, we will further improve IQ tokenomics. BrainDAO is working on building a new gauges system to improve the utility of the IQ token in decentralized finance. This will also allow hiIQ stakers more governance rights in deciding where IQ emissions get channeled and create new ways for hiIQ stakers to earn even more yield.

IQ/KRW Pair is Listed on Coinone

In October, Coinone, one of Korea’s largest exchanges listed the IQ token with a KRW fiat pair. This will lead to even greater liquidity and exposure for the IQ token to the South Korean market, which is the largest in Asia. In 2023, the IQ token saw a record volume on Upbit and Binance seeing several days with over $100 million in volume and one day with over $380 million in volume. It’s no surprise that the IQ token has grown quickly with the rebranding of and with the launch of IQ GPT, the World’s First Crypto Search Engine.

BrainDAO acquires $2.1 Million Staked FRAX

The BrainDAO’s treasury has acquired 2,100,000 sFRAX through Frax Finance’s ERC4626 staking vault. Staked Frax (sFRAX) distributes a portion of the protocol's yield on a weekly basis to stakers, with rewards denominated in FRAX stablecoins. The sFRAX token is a representation of proportional deposits held within the vault and can be redeemed for FRAX stablecoins at any time, maintaining a pro-rata exchange rate. This will bring revenue to BrainDAO as all profits generated are distributed to sFRAX holders such as BrainDAO.
