Introducing IMX To Power Ethereum’s First Layer-2 for NFTs
Important: No IMX tokens have been minted. Do not purchase anything marketed as IMX until an official announcement is made. United States citizens or residents are not allowed to receive IMX tokens due to regulatory uncertainties in the US. Please read here for more information.

We are thrilled to announce IMX, the native ERC-20 utility token of Immutable X. Immutable X is Ethereum’s first zk-rollup protocol for minting and trading NFTs, built in partnership with StarkWare. During its mainnet Alpha period, Immutable X has facilitated millions of dollars in NFT volume and more than 250,000 NFT trades.
Currently, some of the largest companies in the world are building NFT experiences. Many are exploring competitive blockchains or sidechains due to the scalability and user experience challenges of Ethereum. Immutable believes developers shouldn’t have to choose between the security and network effects of Ethereum, and building a fantastic experience for their users — and these companies agree. Immutable X makes building world-class NFT projects simple by providing a powerful underlying scaling solution, a global order book and asset registry, and an NFT-native wallet experience, all exposed through simple APIs and SDKs.
IMX is designed to accelerate the growth of Immutable X by incentivising protocol adoption and trading activity, and to reward those users and developers who contribute to building a scalable NFT ecosystem right here on Ethereum.
There will 2,000,000,000 IMX tokens, provisionally allocated to the following areas:
Currently, IMX has three primary use cases:
- Fees: 20% of every transaction fee on the protocol will be paid in IMX. If you do not own any IMX, IMX will be automatically purchased using your ETH (creating a frictionless user experience).
- Staking: all IMX used to pay transaction fees is sent to a staking rewards pool. This pool will be proportionally distributed among users who are currently staking IMX — the more you stake, the more you’ll earn.
- Governance: as an active member of the Immutable X community, you have an IMX-weighted vote on the future of the protocol.
There is an ongoing IMX Play to Earn campaign to reward users who contribute value to the Immutable X protocol. You can find more information by clicking here.
After the IMX Play to Earn campaign ends, tokens will be rewarded on an ongoing basis to developers, traders, and users who contribute to protocol growth. Every time a user performs an action which is beneficial to Immutable X (such as trading), they will earn points. A rewards pool will then be distributed proportionately amongst points holders.
Currently, we’re planning to reward users for the following actions:
