Free Speech is a
human right

We believe that every voice deserves to be heard and we bring those voices together from all around the world. ETHO Protocol ensures user data is safe and secure by using blockchain technology that replicates data across the globe millions of times per day so that no voice goes unheard.

ETHO Protocol is Freedom!

What we do!

ETHO Protocol is Freedom of Data

Blockchains need built-in storage to be truly decentralized. Your smart contracts point to mission-critical data: can you really afford to leave it in the hands of big tech?

We forked Ethereum to upgrade it by adding a storage layer. The result is a dependable and fully decentralized platform. That's true Freedom of Data.

Any program or service running with Smart Contracts can now directly interact with the stored data - instead of just referencing it somewhere else.

Instant Ethereum Portability

Fully backward compatible EVM: if it runs on Ethereum, it can run on ETHO Protocol

Solidity for Smart Contracts

No re-writing of existing smart contracts is necessary.

On-chain IPFS storage layer

Built right into our blockchain, truly decentralized, and replicated worldwide with geo-balancing.

NFT minting, Marketplace, and Storage

Low gas fees mean incredible flexibility with on-chain storage for convenience and security infinite possibilities.

What can I do with ETHO Protocol?

Store/Host Your Data

Share your voice, store your data. Pin your NFT's, upload your critical files (encrypted or unencrypted), or even publish a whole website.


Develop and Deliver

Re-package or white label our storage and hosting for your customers. Develop an application, launch a project, or connect your platform. No royalty fees, no permission needed.

NFT: Mint, Store, Trade 

The power and familiarity of the Ethereum NFT ecosystem without the high fees - and IPFS storage built right in!


Use your server to store, host, and replicate data by staking ETHO and operating a node. Earn ETHO from each block minted plus a share of network proceeds.


Use your computing power to confirm transactions on the blockchain and secure the network. Earn your share of ETHO from each block minted according to your computing power. 


Buy, sell, or trade ETHO (the coin that provides the fuel for network operations). Offer your ETHO as collateral for staking contracts.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your token/coin?

$ETHO - we are a native blockchain with our own native coin. You can also find our coin "wrapped" as tokens on the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. Converting between main net ETHO and wrapped etho (erc20, bep20) requires the use of our bridge. Exchanges, Swaps, and Bridges can be found on our exchange page.


Where can I buy ETHO?

Visit our Exchange page for exchanges, swaps, and bridges.

What is your algorithm?

ETHASH/DAGGER (we are a fork of the Ethereum git branch)

What is the maximum supply?

There is a soft cap of 68 million coins, with an allowance for 3% inflation. Please see the coin emission schedule on the about us page:
