The funding will be used to expand its collaboration on the DePIN development chain. WiCrypt is headed by Aronu, who is also the CEO of Xend Finance.
A physical infrastructure network (DEPIN) refers to a network of physical devices or resources distributed across various locations and operated in a decentralized manner.
The hotspot devices allow anyone to share their WiFi with others. Users also get to mine the WiCrypt Network Token ($WNT) while sharing their internet connection.
The decentralised nature of the WiCrypt Network ensures that internet connectivity is available in a distributed manner, leveraging the existing infrastructure instead of relying on a centralized internet service provider.
This approach can help expand internet access in areas where traditional connectivity options may be limited or expensive,” Wicrypt says.
