Key elements
of the Threefold Token


Nodes are, essentially, servers. Nodes vary in size, cost and configuration. Click here for ThreeFold blueprints to see recommended configurations.


All nodes connect to the ThreeFold Grid, a fully distributed network that is green, neutral, and scalable.


ThreeFold Token (TF Token) is a digital currency 100% backed by ThreeFold Grid’s capacity.

TF Tokens can be exchanged for other crypto of fiat currency through the TF Exchange, a fully distributed token exchange or through independent token exchanges.

Threefold Grid


ThreeFold’s operating system, Zero-OS, requires very little electricity to produce capacity. Zero-OS is so efficient that ThreeFold farming is profitable even in places where electricity is expensive.


Farmers produce capacity, but do not distribute it. Instead, capacity is distributed via the blockchain. As a result, no single entity decides who gets capacity and who does not.


Zero-Chain, ThreeFold’s proof of stake blockchain, requires no additional computing as capacity expands.
