Layer-1 blockchain peaq has raised $15 million in a pre-launch funding round led by Generative Ventures and Borderless Capital, with over a dozen other investors participating, according to a Mar. 27 announcement.

The project’s infrastructure is designed for decentralized physical infrastructure networks (DePINs), and the funds will support the expansion of the peaq ecosystem, currently home to over 20 live DePIN projects spanning industries from environmental monitoring to shared transportation.
