The Hashgraph Association and SEALSQ Build the Future of Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN) on the Hedera DLT Network

Published

New York, NY, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This partnership leverages SEALSQ’s commitment to develop a machine-to-machine (M2M) economy for digital assets through advanced security technologies.

SEALSQ Corp (Nasdaq: LAES) (“SEALSQ” or “Company”), a leader in semiconductor, PKI, and Post-Quantum technology development, today announced that in partnership with The Hashgraph Association, a Swiss-based organization at the forefront of global digital enablement, have launched a new digital asset built on Hedera Network that caters to the Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN) sector, by enabling billions of internet connected devices to autonomously engage in seamless data and currency exchanges. 

Under the umbrella of Transactional Internet of Things, (TIoT), SEALCOIN is a hybrid payment and utility token for enabling billions of internet-connected devices to autonomously engage in seamless data and digital asset exchanges. For example, IoT ( Internet of Things) devices from various companies can now interact and access a range of services as well as transactions. This could include smart home devices where SEALCOIN could facilitate seamless payment for services like energy consumption, maintenance, and other services without human intervention. The list of applications goes on to include supply chain management, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, energy trading and more. 

A significant milestone is being reached with the release of a M2M Proof of Concept (PoC) enabling the disintermediation of service providers for interconnected devices. The release is scheduled for mid-July 2024, with a comprehensive demo planned shortly thereafter, showcasing the innovative capabilities of SEALCOIN in enabling Service vs Payment transactions between machines.

Kamal Youssefi, President of The Hashgraph Association noted, “We are proud to have partnered with SEALSQ for the launch of such an innovative use case in the DePIN economy. The emergence of DePIN is a pivotal shift in the way physical infrastructure is designed, developed, and deployed. The Hedera network enables secure and seamless micro payments between all internet-connected devices and will further accelerate growth of the M2M DePIN ecosystem.”

SEALCOIN is expected to launch in Q4 2024 and will then be listed on a digital asset exchange. The launch will introduce the Purchasing and Tokenization of Certificates (MVP), marking a major step forward in bridging a strong physical network to the secure Digital infrastructure of Hedera’s network.

"Our vision with SEALCOIN is to redefine the boundaries of secured P2P transactions, in the physical and the digital world," said Carlos Moreira, CEO of SEALSQ. "By cooperating with Hashgraph Association on SEALCOIN, we are not just introducing another Token; we are setting the stage for a future where transactions and services in the digital space are seamless, secure, and efficient. Our work to validate a M2M PoC, upcoming platform launch, to be followed by a strategic listing on a digital exchange, are all steps toward realizing this vision. We are excited about the future and invite the community to join us on this journey."
