Introducing IQ v3: Navigating the Future of Blockchain Knowledge and AI is the World’s Largest Crypto and Blockchain encyclopedia which serves as a hub for crypto knowledge. At, our mission is to educate the world on blockchain technology through the IQ token. In 2023, we’ve focused heavily on exploring and integrating artificial intelligence into the IQ ecosystem building IQ GPT the first AI assistant for blockchain knowledge.

With IQ v3, we plan on continuing to build out the IQ ecosystem. 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.

Today also marks the day of IQ token's halving event, which reduces 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. All of this combined with the halvening will make 2024 a breakthrough year for the IQ token.

Your Compass to navigate the World of Crypto: IQ GPT & AIQChatBot

In August 2023, and BrainDAO launched IQ GPT, the world's first AI-powered assistant designed for blockchain knowledge. It is designed to transform the way users in the industry explore, learn, and gain insights in the crypto space.

Upon its launch, IQ GPT saw an overwhelming amount of positive responses from IQ holders and the blockchain community. IQ GPT is an AI assistant that ensures reliability, which gives the users the ability to access a wealth of information from various sources.

IQ GPT integrated contents and data sets from reliable platforms such as's extensive database, DeFiLlama, Frax Docs, Binance Academy, DeFi Protocol Documentations, The Associated Press News, CoinGecko, Flywheel DeFi, BlockBeats, InvestHK and CoinNess, making it a one-stop-shop for blockchain knowledge.

DeFiLlama is IQ GPT’s most recent integration. DefiLlama is an aggregator of Total Value Locked (TVL) in the decentralized finance (DeFi) field. They offer data on cryptocurrencies, encompassing current price levels, along with TVL information for various DeFi sectors such as decentralized exchanges (DEXs), lending protocols, yield farming operations, staking pools, DeFi insurance, and other related products.

For traders, IQ GPT is able to assist with queries related to arbitrage, technical analysis, historical data analysis, and provide insight on new tokens and trading volumes. DeFi Enthusiasts are able to maximize their yield farming endeavors with IQ GPT by optimizing their strategies through the queries they input into IQ GPT. Users are able to receive answers on where to stake and claim rewards based on gas prices, metrics on existing or new pools. For those diving deep into the knowledge of blockchain and cryptocurrency, IQ GPT offers optimized analysis and information on blockchain. With a simple query, anyone is able to get quick, concise and reliable answers on queries about founders, projects, tokens, exchanges and anything blockchain-related.

Furthermore, the BrainDAO team has introduced the AIQChatBot, specifically designed to support Telegram and Discord communities involved in cryptocurrency, DeFi, NFTs, and related topics. Our vision extends beyond this as we’re already building a version of AIQChatBot for dapps and websites like decentralized exchanges, DeFi applications, cryptocurrency projects, NFT projects, data platforms and more. The launch for the AIQChatBot UI is imminent, and we've already secured some exciting partnerships!

Our vision for IQ GPT has just begun. Our aim is to evolve IQ GPT into an indispensable AI tool for everyone in the crypto/blockchain industry, much like the Bloomberg terminal has become a cornerstone for the financial industry. Stay tuned for further developments!’s content and readership have both grown significantly.

AIQChatBot Integrations: For project members, BrainPass offers eligibility for AIQChatBot (Telegram and Discord) integrations. These integrations will be gated in the future for projects that stake IQ.

Enhanced Tokenomics

In October of 2022, the IQIP-14: ‘New IQ Tokenomics for the New Platform’ governance proposal passed with overwhelming support. This proposal and the halvening tokenomics design was made to ensure the rapid growth of the IQ token with the launch of the new site. BrainDAO proposed using the halvening model like Bitcoin and FXS which provides higher initial emissions to incentivize early adopters and gradually lowers emissions to ensure long-term sustainability.

IQ’s halvening model where emissions halve every 12 months is ideal for the IQ ecosystem with the launch of the new products since it heavily incentivizes early adoption and rapid growth. The model has been designed after the Bitcoin and Ethereum halvening model which has shown to work efficiently.

As we start IQ v3, it is important to acknowledge the halvening event on the 1st of November. The halvening will not only allow the IQ token to get adopted faster in the short term it will also be more sustainable in the long run by slowly tapering IQ emissions over several decades as the value of the token grows.

Supply Reduction: The IQ token undergoes a halving event every year, during which the number of new IQ tokens minted is cut in half. This event reduces the rate at which new IQ tokens are minted, slowing down the supply growth. With a reduced supply growth, the available supply becomes scarcer.

Scarcity: The halving reinforces this scarcity, making the IQ token a deflationary asset. As more people recognize its scarcity and potential as a store of value, it can attract more holders.

Historical Halvening Effects: In the past, Bitcoin halvening events have been associated with significant Bitcoin demand and adoption. However, it's essential to note that historical performance doesn't guarantee future results.

Long-Term Confidence: The predictable and transparent nature of the IQ token halving events instills confidence in long-term holders.

To further improve the long-term sustainability of the IQ token, in IQIP-18: ‘IQ Inflation Reduction Act’ with IQ v3 we propose a reduction in the IQ allocation for TWAMM's position-building in stablecoins and blue-chip assets. This reduction would bring the daily allocation down from its current level of 2,166,667 IQ, following the halving, to 2,000,000 IQ per day. The increase in BrainDAO's stablecoin holdings, coupled with the higher-than-expected yields earned by the DAO in 2023, enables the DAO to reduce the inflation concerning the TWAMM. The halving model guarantees that IQ token inflation will halve each year, ensuring that the total supply of IQ remains below the 21 billion IQ token cap.

IQ Gauges

BrainDAO is currently working on a new IQ Gauges system for deciding which projects will receive part of the token emissions. Gauges will create a flywheel effect for the IQ token similar to Curve Wars and how it helped Frax as projects will want IQ to direct emissions to their respective project pairs. Furthermore, IQ Gauges is the first gauge system to integrate a vote market. HiIQ stakers will have the benefit of participating in the integrated vote market on these gauges, and can be incentivized by other projects in bribing HiIQ holders to vote in favor for their projects.

A "gauge" is a smart contract used in cryptocurrency farming. It accepts various types of deposits, such as LP tokens, vault tokens, and NFT positions. In exchange for these deposits, users receive rewards in the form of IQ tokens, and potentially other tokens. Gauge contracts come in different forms, primarily accepting LP tokens, and they are essential for promoting specific strategies and behaviors that benefit the protocol.

These strategies and behaviors can involve increasing liquidity in specific pairs or forming partnerships with other projects. The gauge system particularly benefits HiIQ Stakers and liquidity providers (LPs) who consistently stake their rewards to accumulate HiIQ, thus boosting their influence within the system. Essentially, IQ gauges align the interests of HiIQ holders, giving those with a long-term perspective more say in how IQ emissions are distributed.

Since IQ gauge emissions are fixed and halve annually, governance can decide to allocate part of the protocol's cash flows or IQ tokens to gauge rewards in the future. This assurance encourages HiIQ stakers to lock their tokens longer, as they know the gauge program is there to stay and won't be discontinued. Gauge strategies are crucial for incentivizing the right actions to foster the growth of the IQ ecosystem.

Users who stake their tokens in a gauge contract can earn higher annual percentage rates (APR) based on their HiIQ holdings. Additionally, those who lock their deposited tokens for a specific duration receive an extra boost, allowing them to stack both boosts to maximize their APR.

What are IQ Gauges: IQ Gauges, developed by BrainDAO, are an innovative system aimed at gauging and incentivizing which projects will receive a portion of the IQ token emissions. These gauges are set to create a dynamic flywheel effect for the IQ token, akin to the successful Curve Wars and its impact on Frax.

Benefiting HiIQ Stakers and LPs: The IQ gauge system particularly benefits HiIQ Stakers and liquidity providers (LPs) who consistently stake their rewards to accumulate HiIQ tokens. This strengthens their influence within the ecosystem, aligning the interests of HiIQ holders and providing those with a long-term perspective greater influence over how IQ emissions are distributed. HiIQ stakers can actively participate in this integrated vote market on the gauges. They can also be incentivized by other projects, who may offer incentives to HiIQ holders in exchange for their votes in favor of their projects.

Integrating a Vote Market: IQ Gauges is the first gauges system to integrate a vote market. HiIQ stakers can actively participate in this integrated vote market on the gauges and will be incentivized by other projects, who may offer incentives to HiIQ holders in exchange for their votes in favor of their projects. This introduces a new level of engagement and competition within the IQ ecosystem.

How Do IQ Gauges Work: A "gauge" is a smart contract used in cryptocurrency farming. These contracts accept various types of deposits, including LP tokens, vault tokens, and NFT positions. In return, users receive rewards in the form of IQ tokens and potentially other tokens.

Sustainability and Assurance: IQ gauge emissions are fixed and halve annually, and governance can decide to allocate part of the protocol's cash flows or IQ tokens to gauge rewards in the future. This assurance encourages HiIQ stakers to lock their tokens for up to 4 years, knowing that the gauge program is here to stay and won't be discontinued. Gauge strategies are vital for incentivizing the right actions to foster the growth of the IQ ecosystem.

Maximize Your Rewards: Users who stake in a gauge contract can earn higher annual percentage rates (APR) based on their HiIQ holdings. Additionally, those who lock their deposited tokens for a specific duration receive an extra boost, allowing them to stack both boosts to maximize their APR.
