What is FETCH.AI (FET)? Find out in detail and in depth about FETCH.AI

FETCH.AI provides a new internet economy with ML (Machine Learning), AI (Artificial Intelligence), multi-agent system and decentralized ledger technology.

Overview of the project

Main features and highlights

  • Digital infrastructure to deploy the Multi-Agent system.
  • Unique scalable ledger to support high transaction rates.
  • Synergetic computing: Brilliant smart contracts for autonomous systems.
  • An economic framework for dynamic market management.

What is FET?

Fetch.AI (FET) brings together Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Multi-agent systems, and decentralized ledger technology to create a new Internet economy – an environment, where digital representations of moving parts of the economy (such as data, hardware, services, people and infrastructure) can get things done through introductions and effective predictions.


Fetch’s goal is to automate massive markets that currently require enormous human labor intervention. Automated economic transactions (autonomous) will help the market almost no transaction fees and operate at digital speed.

It is aiming at a world in which people own multiple economic agents on the Fetch.AI platform, working in series or parallel to build solutions to complex problems of today and the future.

Value proposition

  • Near-autonomous for many components of a complex system.
  • Easy integration and use of ML/AI results in decision making without having to understand ML / AI techniques.
  • Collective intelligence (a combination of machine intelligence and human intelligence) to create a non-siloed AI model, improve decision making.

Token sale and Economy

What is the FET token?

FET is the native token in the Fetch ecosystem. FET is issued as ERC-20.

There will be a fixed number of tokens used on the Fetch.AI network to serve as the digital currency for all transactions, as well as for network activities such as secure information exchange. Tokens can also form an access deposit for both nodes and agents wanting to perform certain activities (such as a security mechanism to prevent bad action).

FET token use cases

  • Used for staking
  • Used to pay the reward of mining nodes and transaction fees/gas
  • Agents use FET tokens to access the Fetch.AI ecosystem
  • Allow two agents to exchange values, no matter where they are
  • Use tokens to access, view and interact with the Fetch.AI search engine
  • Use to access the multi-dimensional digital world of Fetch.AI
  • Used to access and develop AI/ML-based algorithms

To administer the token and how to use the fund

As of December 1, 2018, Fetch.AI has used approximately 85% of the SAFT amount in the following allocation:

  • Cooperation: 10%
  • Marketing: 10%
  • Group: 25%
  • Development: 45%
  • Professional service: 5%
  • Other: 5%

All the money raised in SAFT rounds has been deposited into a multi-signature account: two keys are held by TokenMarket (the independent manager of the private sale round) and two keys are held by Fetch.AI. To request a transaction, it requires at least 3 keys.

Of the ETH raised through three SAFT rounds (24,596.5 ETH), the majority (21,125 ETH or 86%) were converted into fiat currencies in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019. Because of the cost of Fetch.AI is mainly derived from the United Kingdom (in staff and office expenses), this ETH has been converted to Pound Sterling.

Wallet hosting

You can hold FET in wallets that support ERC-20 tokens. Besides, you can keep them in cold wallets such as Ledger Nano, Trezor, etc. In addition, there is a more convenient way to keep them directly on the exchanges with this token listing, such as Binance.

Fetch Products & Figures


The ledger is expandable by design, so the exact performance will vary depending on resources. In tests, Fetch.AI achieved speeds of over 30,000 transactions per second.

It is expected that when started, the time taken to perform a block will be in minutes. This estimate will decrease over time thanks to improvements to the consensus protocol.

Open Economic Framework

This is a second class protocol that provides services to agents. Agents connect with OEF to search, negotiate and transact with other agents on the network.

In early implementations, OEF nodes had two classes: “trusted” and “trustless”. The “trustless” button can be operated anonymously, just like pure ledger buttons. The “trusted” button can be given access to additional agent information to provide intelligent search and discoverability. Drivers of these buttons must have a public, legal identity, and be accredited by the Fetch.AI Foundation.

How to profit from FET

  1. Trade on exchanges that support FET tokens (like BTC or ETH)
  2. Participate in Staking on Binance to receive a profit of 8-12%
  3. Occasionally, Binance supports making money in the “lending” way. So, please follow the Lending section of Binance
