Diode is responsible for governance and issuance of Diode Tokens, governance and maintenance of the Diode Network, and growing the ecosystem surrounding both. The Diode Network is formed by the producers and miners who run instances of the Diode Chain™ Software. The Diode Chain Software’s development and configuration management is provided by Diode. Users of the Diode Network must use Diode Tokens to be granted access to the Diode Network’s unique capabilities for secure IoT communications. Diode manages the issuance (block rewards) and other tokenomics for Diode Tokens.
