Acurast joins the peaq ecosystem to decentralize cloud computing for DePINs 1

 Acurast will explore outfitting the devices on its cloud computing DePIN with peaq IDs, deploy its data oracle on peaq, and open its off-chain computing layer for real-world apps on peaq to use.

March 13, 2024peaq, the blockchain for real-world applications, announces an expansion of its ecosystem as Acurast joins in to decentralize cloud computing. Acurast is a distributed serverless cloud service turning regular smartphones into a decentralized physical infrastructure network (DePIN) for computation. As part of the integration with peaq, it will deploy its versatile oracle on peaq, offer its off-chain computing layer to peaq-native DePINs as an alternative to centralized cloud services, and tap peaq IDs for the devices on its own DePIN.   

The cloud market is booming, expected to exceed $1.2 trillion by 2028 as cloud computation remains the de-facto industry standard for the apps we use in our daily lives. Even Web3 apps aren’t immune to this, with many of them relying on centralized cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services for their hosting and computational needs. However, centralized cloud servers have a variety of drawbacks, from cost and scalability issues to a lack of true ownership and privacy.

Acurast is reimagining cloud computing with its mobile-first DePIN offering a variety of services, including distributed compute for Web2 and Web3 developers alike, data feeds, and on-demand oracles that can provide data when requested, not at set intervals, like with most Web3 oracles. It is joining the peaq ecosystem as a distributed cloud service provider for DePINs building natively on peaq.

As part of the integration, Acurast will deploy its oracle on peaq to provide it with on-demand off-chain data. It will also open its network for DePINs building natively on peaq to enable them run their off-chain components in a decentralized, Web3 manner. Further on, it will explore outfitting the smartphones on its DePIN to verify the data broadcast by these devices and enable communities to collectively purchase and own devices.

“We are thrilled to be joining the peaq ecosystem, the thriving home of DePINs,” says Alessandro De Carli, Co-Founder of Acurast. “We view distributed cloud computing as a major step toward true decentralization and are looking forward to unlocking this technology for the DePINs on peaq — and tapping peaq’s Modular DePIN Functions for our own DePIN.”

“Web3 cloud computing is a vital service for making dApps and DePINs truly decentralized,” says Till Wendler, co-founder of peaq. “We are thrilled to see Acurast join the peaq ecosystem and are certain that it will create a lot of value for the DePINs on peaq and for the community.”
