Planet Nine is redefining the economic model and user experience of digital currency from the ground up. Nineum is fun and easy to find and we focus on engaging an audience that cares about the sustainability of Planet Earth.


The Planet Nine App will be free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The app and associated web APIs utilize iOS and Node.js and are hosted on AWS.


Centralized Non-fungible Tokens

Planet Nine differentiates itself by taking a centralized approach to digital asset ownership. In this way it more closely follows the gaming paradigm than the crypto paradigm. This offers benefits of asset recovery, transaction reversal, and scalability.

ID Cryptography

Planet Nine utilizes the same cryptography that Bitcoin and Ethereum use for account creation and verification.

Gateway APIs

Planet Nine provides Gateway APIs that let any 3rd Party provide interactions that allow users to discover and earn Nineum.
