Chirp Network joins peaq to provide universal connectivity for DePINs

Chirp delivers powerful telecommunications connectivity for decentralized physical infrastructure networks on peaq

peaq, the layer-1 blockchain for DePIN and machine RWAs, announces the expansion of its ecosystem as telecommunications provider Chirp Network joins to provide decentralized connectivity for smart devices.

Chirp is building a unified, multi-protocol decentralized connectivity network that will enable the exchange of data over any supported protocol and from any distance. The network includes Chirp’s “Blackbird” gateway devices, already spread across 33 countries. These gateways provide connectivity for other IoT hardware across a variety of channels, including LoRaWAN, LoRa 2.4 gHz, BLE, and more.

Powered by Chirp’s LTE networks, Blackbirds can connect devices anywhere in the world, enabling entire networks and fleets to exchange data on a borderless backbone seamlessly. Chirp is joining peaq to grant DePINs a reliable and versatile way to connect smart devices to global networks over any major Internet of Things (IoT) protocol.

XMAQUINA, the project behind the world’s first fully autonomous tokenized robot cafe, will be the first DePIN in the peaq ecosystem to tap Chirp Network as its connectivity layer. XMAQUINA’s tokenized robotic barista, recently unveiled at the TOKEN2049 conference in Dubai, uses Chirp to link with peaq, exchanging data with the blockchain via Chirp’s IoT connectivity layer, which enables it to operate autonomously.

Chirp will also be providing connectivity for ELOOP, a project enabling tokenized investment in DePINs, via the peaq network, as well as Silencio — a DePIN on peaq rewarding people with crypto for collecting local noise pollution data.

Chirp’s integration with peaq creates a backbone for devices on peaq, enabling DePIN builders to tap the Chirp Network as their connectivity layer. By doing so, they can launch their dApps faster without having to worry about roaming contracts to ensure global connectivity.

As part of the integration, Chirp will create an endpoint layer for devices on peaq — a service that will enable them to communicate with the peaq blockchain — and set up an API to give builders more flexibility. It will also launch a data handling service for DePIN devices using SIM cards, such as smartphones and tablets.

Chirp will also build a peaq integration adapter – a handy tool for builders looking to customize their integration with peaq and leverage the blockchain as the data storage layer for their own DePINs.

Tim Kravchunovsky, founder of Chirp Network, says: “Reaching true decentralization is no trivial matter. Our integration with peaq will bring the DePINs building in its ecosystem one major step closer to it — ultimately resulting in a world whose infrastructure backbone is run by its users, not Big Tech. This integration boosts peaq’s position as the leading layer-1 for DePIN projects.”

“Decentralized connectivity and networking is an important function for any DePIN,” adds Till Wendler, co-founder of peaq.

“peaq’s integration with Chirp unlocks this crucial feature for all DePINs in the ecosystem, enabling devices all over the world to communicate via a people-owned network. Chirp’s agnostic approach to wireless protocols will assist DePIN builders in bringing the largest-ever number of IoT devices on-chain.”
