Operate the SmartMesh-MeshBox Ecosystem to Your Advantage


A token-based next-generation protocol for the HyperMesh architecture.


SmartMesh Token, the base coin on the Spectrum public blockchain. After staking SMT on a Spectrum node (Laptop, server, MeshBox) the miner will earn SMT. Also, SMT can be used to pay for MeshBox services such as Internet access.


An ecosystem project of SmartMesh which provides the hardware platform for the SmartMesh protocol and various inclusive applications. It is a hardware box device capable of Spectrum blockchain mining, backhauling to internet access, decentralized data storage, edge-computing and storage, and IoT bridging to the Internet.

Photon Network

A layer-2 smart-contract on Spectrum, designed by SmartMesh to realise peer-to-peer, fast and secure transfers of cryptocurrencies with highly scalable Transactions-per-Second (TPS) metric. Also, for inclusive applications in which internet is intermittent, Photon can be operated in off-chain, and off-internet modes.


SmartMesh’s cross-chain interoperability architecture that allows interoperability with other blockchain ecosystems and associated tokens


A mobile application that acts as a crypto-wallet for Spectrum tokens, supporting Spectrum and Photon transfers. Also, supports SMT mining management, payment gateway for internet access on MeshBox, and a chatroom functionality.


the SmartMesh public blockchain.


Ozone is a gateway to the Spectrum network infrastructure for developers, allowing third-party projects to build upon the network and enrich the SmartMesh ecosystem.


A MeshBox token; used to pay for MeshBox services such as IoT data transfers, decentralized data storage, decentralized parallel computing, etc.

Hypermesh Infrastructure

The next-generation cyber-physical architecture that provides seemless interworking of Spectrum Blockchain, Photon Payment Network, MeshBox edge computing/storage, Internet backhaul, Wifi mesh routing, and Internet of Things LPWAN connectivity. On the HyperMesh architecture, various applications such as inclusive connectivity, inclusive payment systems, and inclusive energy can be integrated.

16:30 – 17:00[BC-Track] Blockchain Challenge and Q&A

Invited Talk: JED Trade

Interoperability in Collaborative Blockchain Networks with JEDTrade & SmartMesh


A successful collaborative network is built on transparency among involved parties, be it between a supplier and vendor, or a buyer and seller. However, how do we build trust for networks in remote areas where access to basic technology may even pose as a problem? Even as consumers, we are becoming increasingly aware of what we eat, whether our food is indeed premium and organic as claimed on the packaging itself. So, how is it possible to verify the authenticity of certificates issued in a transaction, even more so in rural areas, to keep our minds assured?  The term interoperability suggests using computer systems and technology to exchange data and information, addressing the issue of communication regardless of locations within your network. Just like the organic goods we consume come from farms located in areas ideal for crops to grow and unlikely to be easily accessed, difficulties in tracking and verifying certificates arises. However, with business process run on blockchain, utilizing JED ES enables the issuance of documents and validation of signatures or attestations, leveraging on the nature of blockchain’s decentralized network which allows improved traceability.`

Invited Talk: Dedoco

Blockchain Issued Certificates: Proof of Education and Employment


The use of blockchain for issuance of trusted yet decentralised credentials have always been a subject of interest. Such a credential should allow for one to verify the validity of these credentials easily and yet be able to protect the personal privacy of the credential holder. In this talk, we examine the various approaches taken to create such credentials on blockchain and how they are being used. We will also demonstrate a certificate of attendance that is deployed on SmartMesh Spectrum for this workshop.

He received his PhD in Economics from the University of New South Wales, Australia and also held academic positions in Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Management University.

Invited Talk: Netki

Validated Identity as a Basis for Trust


One of the great values of blockchain is its ability to facilitate trust-less transactions, yet the modern world is built on interconnected networks of trust.  The root of trust is always identity. In this session we will discuss the importance of identity and how what “identity” means is deeply tied to the specific use case involved. We will cover:

  1. What things are important when validating identity and how to do so effectively in your platform?
  2. What are some of the concerns around validating, storing and securing identity, and what are the trade-offs of various approaches?
  3. A case study of how we designed and built the BIP 75 Bitcoin standard to solve the specific problem of “Travel Rule” compliance for crypto currency and other digital asset companies.

Students should come away from this session with an understanding of how identity may apply to projects they are working on, how to integrate identity into their platform, and what are the current and emerging trends around identity validation and what are some of the things to watch for around them.

Invited Talk: Sentinel Chain

Livestock-backed Financing with Sentinel Chain


80% of the global food supply are contributed by smallholder farmers. However, in many parts of the world, smallholder farmers have no access to affordable working capital to sustain their farming activities. To address this problem, InfoCorp has designed a solution that allows smallholder farmers to use their livestock as collateral for loans using a cross-chain architecture comprising of 3 blockchains – FarmTrek, Sentinel Chain and Ethereum.

FarmTrek is an agri-tech solution designed to address livestock traceability using RFID, NFC smartphone and a non-Turing complete in-country private blockchain. Sentinel Chain is a fin-tech solution designed to as a consortium side-chain to Ethereum that allows livestock asset on FarmTrek to be used as collaterals for offshore financing. This talk to give an introduction to the purpose and architecture of Sentinel Chain.  The agenda for the talk includes:

  • Using FarmTrek for livestock traceability (10 min)
  • Using Sentinel Chain for livestock-backed financing (10 min)
  • Sentinel Chain Use Case – iFarmer (10 min)
  • Q&A (15 min)
