DePHY Secures Seed Funding Round at $40 Million Valuation

DePHY, a DePIN infrastructure startup, has recently completed a seed funding round, achieving a $40 million valuation and amassing several million dollars in investment. 

DePHY is an all-in-one DePIN framework to drastically decrease the cost and timeframe associated with DePIN project development. DePHY provides open source hardware solutions, decentralised messaging layer, and automatic tokenomics execution for all DePIN projects. DePHY’s messaging layer facilitates the secure, verifiable, and swift transfer of data from hardware to blockchain, utilising Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and Zero-Knowledge (ZK) Oracles to guarantee data verifiability and low-latency.

DePHY will also be deploying a trusted DID (Decentralised Device Identity) solution on Solana and has recently received a grant from the Solana Foundation.
