Anthony Di Iorio, the co-founder of Ethereum, Decentral and Jaxx Liberty, unveiled his 10 year project in the making -- ANDIAMI -- which blends game theory with cutting-edge hardware to bring blockchain computers to a wider audience.

  • 10 year project in the making:  The multi-year endeavor is seeking to counter blockchain centralization by enabling crypto users to run full nodes with little to no technical expertise. A full node is a computer that stores the complete transactional history of a blockchain network.

  • Andiami name:  Di Iorio is part Italian and modified the word, “andiamo” (Italian for “let’s all go”) to better encapsulate his concept. “In Italian and in other languages, adding an “i” at the end [of a word] pluralizes it. So it's not just, ‘let's all go,’ it’s ‘let's all go together’”
  • 2023 focuses on the project's game theoretic components: a game entitled The Quest for Liberty, a player kit and Digital Life Tokens that players earn in the game.
  • 2024 to 2025, the focus shifts to Andiami’s flagship hardware product – “The Cube”– a plug-and-play blockchain computer that runs full nodes for networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
  • Problem solving framework:  “I have a framework for solving problems called ‘Perfect Formula.’ It’s a framework I built to solve problems with the end game being to create as many wins for as many stakeholders as possible”.  "There's so much competition and divisiveness in this ecosystem, Di Iorio said. "Our goal is to support the best projects and to give tools to the projects that aren't as good, to get better."
  • Player Kits:  The initial phase of the Andiami project revolves around The Quest for Liberty – a game where users buy player kits containing puzzles that can be solved to unlock Digital Life Tokens. Di Iorio says player kits will retail between $500 and $5,000.

  • Non-fungible Phgitals (NFPs):  users will need to purchase player kits containing “Non-Fungible Phygitals” (NFPs) – physical items like player cards, embedded with NFC (near-field communication) authentication chips to link digital and physical worlds together.
  • Hardware cube:  Andiami will culminate with the launch of The Cube. A specialized, plug-and-play computer specifically designed to run a variety of full nodes. Just as there are gaming consoles for gamers, Di Iorio wants to build blockchain computers for crypto users.
    • Think of it as a "Personal server for an individual to allow them to be independent and not have to rely on third parties to engage and interact with decentralized technologies."
  • Centralized to Decentralized:  Andiami’s goal is to further decentralize crypto infrastructure. Much of crypto’s infrastructure is run on giant cloud computing provider platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS) or outsourced to infrastructure firms like Infura. Andiami’s end game is to transition that infrastructure to regular users by making it less intimidating to run a full node.

The goal is empowering people with what they need to be in control of their digital lives. It starts with you being your own server.  Anything that revolves around having a third party trusted intermediary between you and your money, or you and your identity, or you and your communications, isn't the ideal situation. -- Anthony Di Iorio
