Layer-1 blockchain for DePIN
You can build two types of dApps and DePIN on the peaq network
ones that directly involve machines, vehicles, robots and devices, like
electric vehicle charging.
and ones that facilitate them, like
crow founding dApps.
Find out what makes peaq the Layer 1 blockchain to build a DePIN on.
The peaq network is highly secure and decentralized thanks to its cutting-edge architecture.
Per Second (TPS)
peaq allows for high throughput, capable of scaling far past the 10,000 transactions per second mark.
Enjoy fast, reliable transactions for as little as $0.00025, enabling seamless operations and interactions.
peaq leverages the greenest blockchain technology in Web3 to power a sustainable Economy of Things.
Flexible building. Use Rust for Pallets, ink! smart contracts, or Solidity to create EVM smart contracts.
peaq leverages the largest and second-largest developer ecosystem in Web3 - Ethereum and Polkadot.
Build a DePIN in under a week
peaq equips DePIN and dApp builders with all the decentralized backend logic needed to build record breakers in record time.
Create unique self-sovereign IDs for your vehicles, robots and devices to enable secure interactions.
Efficient access management with role-based control, ensuring secure and authorized operations.
Enable seamless, secure and autonomous transactions between people and machines on your DePIN.
Store and exchange data securely and efficiently, enabling effective communication and information flow.
Organize and retrieve data with the data indexing feature, enhancing usability and accessibility of information.
Leverage autonomous AI agents for advanced operations and interactions on your DePIN or dApp.
Interoperability is key in Web3. peaq integrates seamlessly with the leading multi-chain networks, ensuring that when you build on peaq, you build for all of Web3.
DePINs/dApps on peaq are natively interoperable with the Polkadot ecosystem via Cross-Chain Messaging (XCM).
peaq is EVM-compatible, letting you leverage all the opportunities the Ethereum ecosystem offers.
Create multi-chain IDs and exchange data with machines in the Cosmos ecosystem, leveraging Fetch.ai AI agents.
Enjoy the convenience of compatibility with all Ethereum (such as MetaMask) and Substrate wallets.
Incentivising things in the Economy of Things
peaq’s economic model is specifically designed to incentivise machines, vehicles, robots, and devices, and the DePINs and dApps they run on.
Every machine which connects and contributes to the network earns rewards. peaq enables machines to become self-sustaining, independant economic actors.
DePINs and dApps that perform well by way of generating value, transactions and upvotes are rewarded by way of a decentralized network revenue share.
to make a real world impact
peaq is a Layer-1 blockchain purposely designed to power DePINs (Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks) and Layer-2s for the Economy of Things (EoT).
Highly Secure and Decentralized
The peaq layer-1 blockchain is secured by the Polkadot layer-0.
Reliable, Low-Cost Transactions
Transactions on the peaq network cost as little as < $0.001.
Most Environmentally Friendly Blockchain
peaq is powered by the greenest blockchain in Web3.
Out-of-the-Box DePIN Functions
peaq ID, access, pay, store, and reward, are all ready to deploy.
Economic Model built for DePINs in the EoT
Economically incentivising connected devices, dApps and DePINs.
Multi-Chain w/ Polkadot, Ethereum & Cosmos
Polkadot native. Ethereum bridged. Data-sharing w/ Cosmos.
Supporting EVM & ink! Smart Contracts
Write smart contracts in Solidity or Rust. EVM compatible.
High throughput and fast block time ensure scalability is no issue.
Ready-to-Deploy Autonomous AI Agents
Leverage Fetch.ai’s autonomous AI agents with ease.
Why build on peaq?
peaq is the world’s first and only Layer1 blockchain network focused on powering the Web3 Economy of Things.
peaq is specifically designed to be the best possible home for IoT dApps, DePINs and layer2s which facilitate the Economy of Things.
peaq’s open-source core functions are readily available for builders to use. These include peaq ID, peaq access and peaq pay.
peaq’s tokenomics are designed to incentivise a self-expanding ecosystem by incentivizing the deployment of new machines to the network.
peaq network’s token reward mechanisms empower vehicles, robots and devices to become self-sustaining service providers and autonomous economic agents.
The peaq network is designed to distribute abundance to all Economy of Things stakeholders as AI-powered vehicles, robots and devices automate human jobs.
peaq is the home of the world’s fastest growing Economy of Things ecosystem which includes some of the world’s largest machine manufacturers.
peaq is setting the standard for Self-Sovereign Machine identity as part of the EU-backed Gaia-x moveID consortium.
peaq’s canary network, krest, the world’s first and only Economy of Things simulation network - allows builders to deploy and test on a live blockchain without risking real-world harm.
peaq is built on Polkadot and is EVM compatible, built with the multi-chain view of Web3 at heart.
How to build on peaq
No matter your skill set, there’s a way to leverage it to build the future on the peaq network and make a tangible impact on the real world.
Anyone, anywhere can start building in the peaq ecosystem at any time, but if you need a kick start, the peaq foundation is here to help.
If you’re ready to begin, head over to the Docs section and check out the testnet, or start building on krest - peaq’s canary network.
