Use Cases

Build any app for connected machines, anywhere.

Machines exist in all four domains: land, sea, sky, and space. peaq provides everything you need to build apps (DePINs) for vehicles, robots, and devices in any domain.

DePIN Use Cases

DePIN stands for Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks. These apps use tokens to incentivize people 
to deploy hardware to build real physical infra networks.
