Where does the name ThreeFold come from?

Someone asked this in the chat today and I thought it was a fun one, so I’m sharing the answer here as well:

One of the great mysteries of life! :joy::cyclone: Actually there is no official name origin story, at least none that I am aware of.

At one point it reflected our three main “products” (at the time) – ThreeFold Grid, ThreeFold Token, & 3Bot. And our “three layered” approach.

Three is always coming back, though:

Our core values – Equality, Sovereignty, and Sustainability.

ThreeFold offers decentralized storage, compute, and network. Three again!

And the ThreeFold Law states that any good you do will return to you threefold in this lifetime. :pray:

Also, three layers:

  1. Capacity
  2. Applications
  3. Humans

Thank you for sharing @Sam… indeed this is a FUN one :laughing: that simply emerged from the Ether… For me besides of also being born on a 3rd :birthday: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: my 3 cents to this comments are

  1. harmony, wisdom and understanding
  2. time – past, present, future
  3. birth, life, death OR beginning, middle, end
    – Three is seen in many modalities as the number of the divine

Blessings,

And there’s more, like the three pillars of our truly decentralized cloud Kristof presented during our first deep dive session last week:

  1. Quantum Safe Storage
  2. Planetary Network
  3. Smart Contract for IT

If you’d like to learn more about them, I recommend to watch the recording of that session here! :dizzy:
